OH HOLY ALIEN BABIES EVERYWHERE
I am so excited to be writing this post on THE DARKEST STAR BY JENNIFER L ARMENTROUT. The day I got my signed copy was the highlight of my month, yes the entire month. I have been waiting for this book since I finished Opposition and it did NOT disappoint.
The story is from the point of Evie Dasher, and you may recognize her last name from one Jason Dasher, the sergeant that we all hated from Origin and Opposition.
One night, she happens to find herself, with her friend Heidi, at a club rumored to be a hangout spot for Luxen. Keep in mind a few years have passed since the events of Opposition. The general public knows about and has begun to integrate with Aliens.
Heidi quickly leaves Evie to go hang out with her usual friends at the club, and Evie is left alone. That is until she is pulled aside and brought to our favorite Origin, Luc.
That is when things start getting crazy.
What I love about this book is the blend of the old and the new. The Darkest Star is a spin-off series which is why I was glad to be presented with new characters and new problems. That being said, any mention of Katy, Daemon, Archer, etc. sends me into a squealing fit.
The first time Daemon showed up, I had to put the book down because I was giggling so much.
I don’t want to give away too much, but this book was definitely worth waiting months and months, and now we get to wait an entire year until the next installment (yay us).
Seriously though, to hear that we were going to be getting more of the Lux world warmed my heart. It was such a big part of my middle school and high school self, I would read the books when I was feeling happy, sad, or anxious because I knew it would always make me feel better.
I give this book
I love you all, and I will see you on Sunday!
