The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Review)

     The first book in a new spin-off series of the Lux series, The Darkest Star takes up years after the events in the Lux series. Now, I'll address the big question that many have right off-the-bat: yes, you can read and enjoy this book without having read the Lux series. I would make the claim that The Darkest Star can be a wonderful continuation of the series, as well as a strong standalone. This novel is the story of Evie Dasher, a young human woman, post-invasion. One day she goes to and alien friendly dance club with her BFF, and gets swept up into a dangerous conspiracy of Origins, Humans and Luxens. Along the way she runs into the handsome and powerful Luc, and finds that she simply cannot shake him.
       I really enjoyed The Darkest Star. I don't really understand the title, so don't read too far into that, but the story itself was really entertaining. Like junk food. Yah, The Darkest Star is like junk food. Its not going to grow you as a person or give you some revelation, but it was sure as heck fun to read. There was some serious romantic tension between Evie and Luc. It was quite spicy. And action-wise, the story was not very action oriented, but a heavy dose of mystery made up for that. All in all, I enjoyed The Darkest Star and give it the rating of FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
