Audio Book Review: The Darkest Star By Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Darkest Star
(Origin #1)
By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Narrator: Saskia Maarleveld
Length: 12 hours and 11 minutes

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 Review:

I haven't felt this strongly about a book in, at least, a few months! It's even more impressive that it was with this author in particular. Books by Jennifer have been more misses for me then hits in the last few releases, but OMG I want to scream from the high heavens how amazingly wonderful this book is!

As much as I enjoyed the world the author wove in the Lux series they ended up getting released so far apart that by the last book I just lost interest. Which, is completely my fault, but I didn't and still don't want to re-read everything and risk not liking it because it's been eight years since I started the series.

Luc was amazingly cryptic, mysterious and caring. I know those make no sense together but trust me, he's awesome even though it may not seem like it at first. His story was the story I never knew I needed but now that I've started on it I'm obsessed!

Evie started off being a very mundane character and that slowly evolved over time. She's stubborn, strong and loyal. Her interactions with her friends made all that very evident. Though she did get a tad bit annoying right before the end with her reactions (it was totally justified, I just didn't want to be in the presence of it for that long of a scene(s)).

The ending was something alright! I was expecting a cliffhanger (which is why I took my sweet sweet time getting to this novel in the first place) and I was taken aback with the action-packed sequence with a slight open-ended ending. I can't wait for the next novel!! And the year-long wait after that for the next book...

The Audio Book:

The narration was great! I could differentiate each character in a conversation with no problem. She has a good range of male and female voices.

My Rating:
& ½


  1. I just finished The Burning Shadow, and it was every bit as awesome!

    1. That's awesome to hear! I can't wait to get my hands on the audio book for Burning Shadow!
