#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to a new romantic YA science fiction Origin series with The Darkest Star.

In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.

Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity’s war with the Luxen. She was just a kid when it tore her world, and family, apart. Now seventeen, Evie is thrown back into a conflict she wants no part of—and into the path of Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she assumes is a Luxen, but is in fact something much more secret—and much more dangerous.

Her growing attraction to Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, revealing secrets long buried, a life-shattering betrayal, and a romance that just might make it all worth it.
