First of all, it was amazing to return to the Lux world.... Luc was always a character that needed his own book and I am so glad that it is finally here!!
The cameos of Daemon.... Sigh, I wish they were longer! And where was Kat? I miss her feisty attitude though I will admit that Evie does come with her own sass and "take no crap" attitude when it comes to Luc which is highly entertaining.
The plot follows on from Opposition where the world is now in a "recovery" phase after the war. The Luxen have somewhat integrated into society though it is an uneasy peace.
Evie is your average high school student trying to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life, until she decides to accompany her friend to a nightclub then all hell breaks loose....
Action, mystery, romance and JLA's signature plot twists, that's what you can expect picking up this book!
I definitely recommend that you read the Lux series before "The Darkest Star" so that you can fully appreciate this book and it's cast of characters.
Wow Jennifer Armentrout you never disappoint! This book was perfect! For this one I listened to the audiobook because being chronically ill can really interrupt your life...like <i>reading</I> for example, which is sooo not cool! Hence I totally HAD to find a work around and here started my new trend of audiobooking (totally not a word but I just made it one 😋). That aside, the narration of this book by Saskia was <I>ahhmazing</I> she honestly did an incredible job! So thank you for that 😊
But moving on to more important stuff aye...coz hot damn Luc is all grown up and oh boy, oh boy...I think I’m more in love with him now *sighs staring off into space dreamily* #newbookboyfriendalert - hey don’t judge guys until you read.
Also I would just like to say I totally was right - I honestly don’t know why I keep surprising myself when I work stuff out but alas it still continues to bamboozle me. Go figure 🤷🏻♀️but dang I LOOOVVEEE being right! 😏but hey I’m giving no spoilers away here so your just going to have to read to find out for yourself. 😉
So really the only reason you‘re probably even reading this review is to find out how awesome it was...well let me clear that up once and for all. If your not familiar with Jennifer’s work then that’s totally understandable as to why you need to find this out without diving head first into the book...sooo I shall I’ll forgive you of this 😉 but guys she’s an amazing, talented author and this book is just another of hers to add to that ever growing list of hers. It’s well written, captivating, the pace of the book is crafted to perfection and your going to love some of the things that pop out their mouths, especially Luc’s (but I’m sure you expected that lol).
So aside from thinking this book was great. Let’s talk a little about the story. So it follows after the events of Opposition in the Lux Series. Luxen now live alongside the humans known and registered (well most of them - some have managed to evade this outcome). But although they live among the humans they are not trusted nor are they really treated the greatest (people can be so judgey right?🙄). Anyways this basically sets the scene for this book. I won’t go into too much detail because in my opinion that’s not really what reviews should be focused on coz you got the blurb for that stuff lol. But anywho, you have teenage girl Evie who goes to this club with her friend - a club that a certain young fella owns *wink wink, nudge nudge* and that my friends is where I’m going to leave it. Let the drama begin 😁😁
Heads up though, as sort of mentioned, I’d definitely suggest that you read the Lux series first as it does follow after these events. So be sure to check out the first book Shadows to kick start the series. You won’t be disappointed in it. It’s one of my favs!
Anyways that’s all...another quick thank you to Jennifer Armentrout! U never cease to amaze me! 👌❤️ seriously though I NEED MORE!
Cheerio everyone and Happy Reading My Nerdy Friends! 🤓
When seeing this book was a spin off of the lux series my first rectation WOW this should be really good and then all the fears set in but what if I don't like as much ect . Well I just want to put all your fears aside and tell you if your a lux fan this book is a must for you. The best part about this book is that it is following a different person so the story is not stale an having Luc in it is offering a little of the old lux series in a new way it all works and makes for a really great story which is full of dead body's confessions an good old fashion warning! To stay away from the not so human super hot boy Luc.
Another amazing new series from in if the best authors. Jennifer has outdone herself yet again. The story of Luc and his Peaches is so amazing and at the same time heart breaking. The ending was perfect although it left me hanging and so impatient for the next book. What happens to Luc and Peaches? Who is killing all those innocent people? Can't wait to find out...😍😍😍
