#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 series with The Darkest Star. 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.
In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.
Seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity's war with the stunning, otherworldly Luxen. Evie was just a kid when the aliens were defeated, but her life was forever changed when her father, Sergeant Jason Dasher, was killed during one of the deadly battles.
When Evie 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 secret—and much more dangerous.
Her growing desire to know about Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she'd only heard about, revealing secrets long buried, a betrayal that could tear her life apart, and an attraction that could be the very end of her.
