    When I heard one of my favorite side characters ever, Luc, was getting a spinoff series I was so freaking ecstatic. He was just so weirdly awesome in the Lux series.As with any Armentrout book, there was incredible angst, swoon, and action. But what I loved here was the story. There were some great twists. One I knew super early on, and I was so excited about it!Luc is seriously the best character. His shirts are awesome, his attitude is awesome,...

    “Sometimes the truth is worse than the lie.” It was so much fun being back in this world and getting to revisit some beloved characters and learning more about the Origins - who had always interested me. I knew I would enjoy the story because I already like a lot of the characters - and as a character driven read, half the battle was already won. Getting to see cameos from Daemon, Archer, and some other characters from the Lux series was a r...

    This was a really fun read! Classic JLA! Sexy guy, great MC, lots of swoons. I had so missed reading this type of paranormal book. I need more sort of light hearted, fun reads.

    Its been awhile since I've picked up a Armentrout young adult read, but immediately starting The Darkest Star I was reminded why I love her writing so much. Fast moving, action intense and packed with solid, believable and humanized characters that pull you into her storytelling...hook, line and sinker!We met the Origin before but now we are getting up close a personal with a new direction to these aliens that are cohabitating with us on earth. I...

Vamos, que buscaba cualquier hueco en el trabajo para escaparme y leer un poco. Con eso os digo todo.
