Waiting on Wednesday: The Darkest Star

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Darkest Star
(Origin #1)
Publication Date: October 30, 2018
Hardcover, 368 pages, Tor Teen
Genres: YA, Sci-Fi

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.

My Thoughts

I’ve already talked about how blagh I find this cover. I really don’t even want to talk about how prom-ish it is.

So, instead, I’ll talk about how I’ve already read this book. And it was good. Not great. Luc was a little $hit. I can’t believe how abusive the bastard was. However, I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, so I’ll still be continuing on with the series, despite its underwhelming start. Mostly I’m continuing because I want to see Daemon and Katy.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?

    1. I loved the Lux books, but this one was kind of a disappointment. :(

  2. Yeah the cover is meh. I loved the temporary cover better. This is a book I've been waiting forever to read. Really wish to knew what you were talking about with Luc being a little shit though.


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
