Jennifer L. Armentrout's The Darkest Star

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout has stirred the magical pot and cooked up a scrumptious YA fantasy romance feast with The Darkest Star. A war with aliens backed by an otherworldly romance? Check, please! Even better, you can start reading right now, right here.

We’re headed into prime summer beach and vacation time—and we know what you should be bringing with you as your next read. Jennifer L. Armentrout is known for being a master of sexy drama, and her new Origin series, which begins with The Darkest Star, is just the book to slip into your beach bag or carry-on.

Here’s where The Darkest Star will take you:

A girl pulled into in a world she doesn’t understand finds herself confronted by long buried secrets, 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…

The Darkest Star promises delicious otherworldly intrigue, and like Evie Dasher, we can’t wait to unravel the mysteries behind Luc.
