Week 35 Review: The Darkest Star

From Goodreads:
In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to this new series with a girl caught up in a world she doesn't understand, secrets long buried, a betrayal that could tear her life apart...and Armentrout's most swoonworthy book boyfriend yet.

Seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity's war with the aliens. When she's caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen...but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she'd only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head...

My Review:
Oh, wow, I loved reading this book! I mean, I loved the original series, and when I found that that Luc was getting his own series, yeah, I was really excited to read it! I loved Evie and Luc's interactions, he was so audacious!

It'd been a while since I had last read the Lux series, so I kinda wish that I'd read them again in preparation for this book. I honestly think you either have to either reread the series, or have never read it, going into this book. Then going back to the Lux series. This in-between that I was in, yeah, it didn't make my reading experience bad, but it wasn't as good as it could've been, and that was my fault.

One thing that I loved about this series was that we got to see the aftermath of the war at the end of Opposition. That's something we never really get in most books, because the series ends. But now we got this spin off series, so yeah, I'm really happy with that!

There were a lot of secrets, that slowly Evie learned, a lot that concerned her. I really enjoyed that! And because of those secrets, and them coming out, well, some threads were emerging. Well, some where separate. And they weren't all dealt with, or even fully explained, so I can't wait to read about them in the future books!

This book was so freaking fantastic, and I can't wait for the next book!
