When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is 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…

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.


The darkest star tells us the story of Luc, whom you have already met in the Lux series, and whom you probably liked. Luc is an origin, the story takes place a few years after the Opposition events.

I loved Luc in the Lux series and I was looking forward to reading his story, I am absolutely not disappointed by this book that features Luc and tells us his story. We learn more about Nadia, and we see Daemon and Asher again, which is great.

Luke is faithful to himself, he tries to save the Luxens because the world has changed, now everyone is aware of their existence and they are controlled. They can no longer use their powers without risking their lives. They are listed and those who have managed not to be listed ask Luc for help to escape.

I love Luc, he’s arrogant but he can be, he’s powerful, he has power but he also has a weakness. I like his protective side towards the Luxen but also towards Evie. They’re so cute when they’re looking for lice.

I liked Evie, we feel that she is looking for herself and that her life will change, she doesn’t like danger yet she is heading straight for him. She is innocent but she doesn’t hesitate to be respected by Luc. She will discover that many people around her have lied to her and are still lying to her, and it will become complicated for her to trust anyone.

Evie will be in danger and Luc will have to protect her, he thinks he knows who he will have to fight but nothing is obvious until the end. As the world has changed, humans are beginning to rebel against the Luxen, especially after some have been found dead.

I loved the relationship between Evie and Luc, we feel that Luc is hiding something from her and even if we guess what it is, Evie is taking longer.

I wasn’t surprised by the revelations in this volume, and this about any character. I don’t mind, but it’s true that it was a little predictable.

Jennifer L Armentrout is still as talented as ever at telling stories and the volumes that await us promise a lot of action.

Quick word: I loved this book and I recommend it if you liked Luc.


The darkest star nous raconte l’histoire de Luc, que vous avez déjà rencontré dans la série Lux, et que vous avez probablement aimé. Luc est un origine, l’histoire se passe quelques années après les évènement d’Opposition.

J’ai adoré Luc dans la série Lux et j’avais hâte de lire son histoire, je ne suis absolument pas déçu par ce livre qui met en scène Luc et qui nous raconte son histoire. On en apprend plus sur Nadia, et l’on revoit Daemon et Asher, ce qui est génial.

Luc est fidèle à lui-même, il essaie de sauver les Luxens car le monde a changé, désormais tout le monde est au courant de leur existence et ils sont contrôlés. Ils ne peuvent plus utiliser leurs pouvoirs sans risquer de se faire tuer. Ils sont répertoriés et ceux qui ont réussi à ne pas l’être demande l’aide de Luc pour fuir.

J’adore Luc, il est arrogant mais il peut l’être, il est puissant, il a du pouvoir mais il a aussi une faiblesse. J’aime son côté protecteur envers les Luxen mais aussi envers Evie. Ils sont trop mignons quand ils se cherchent des poux.

J’ai bien aimé Evie, on sent bien qu’elle se cherche et que sa vie va changer, elle n’aime pas le danger pourtant elle fonce droit vers lui. Elle est innocente mais elle n’hésite pas se faire respecter par Luc. Elle va découvrir que beaucoup de gens autour d’elle lui ont menti et lui mente encore, et ça va devenir compliqué d’accorder sa confiance.

Evie va être en danger et Luc va devoir la protéger, il pense savoir contre qui il va devoir se battre mais rien n’est évident avant la fin. Le monde ayant changé, les humains commencent à se rebeller contre les Luxen, surtout après que quelques-uns aient été retrouvés mort.

J’ai adoré la relation entre Evie et Luc, on sent bien que Luc lui cache quelque chose et même si on devine ce que c’est, Evie de son côté met plus de temps.

Je n’ai pas été surprise des révélations de ce tome, et ce à propos d’aucun personnage. Ça ne me gêne pas mais il est vrai que c’était un peu prévisible.

Jennifer L Armentrout a toujours autant de talent pour raconter des histoires et les tomes qui nous attendent promettent beaucoup d’actions.

En bref : J’ai adoré ce livre et je vous le conseille si vous avez aimé Luc.
