Jennifer tells a great story of the aftermath of what happened after the Lux invaded and the problems going on in the present.
My thoughts on this book is that it’s great and I cannot wait for the next one. I am interested in what is in store for Luc and Evie next. Jennifer has produced my favorite paranormal books to date which is The Lux series, I was hooked from Obsidian. I know that those books have been optioned a few times to make into a movie, but hasn’t manifested yet. It comes to my understanding that there is no longer a option but I am confident that the Lux series will one day make it to the big screen and when it does, I think Luc’s story would be a great addition TV series spin-off of the movies. And since the show Roswell is coming back out as a remake, I really think the fad will catch on and people will begin to love our out of this world friends. Her stories will be the hottest thing in teen movies. And this book has all the makings of good YA television. There is angst, great characters, and just the right amount of sex appeal. The characters are lovable and the settings are perfect. There is also some appearances from our main characters from the Lux series which I’m stoked about that she included. The chemistry is just as good as her previous main characters if not more. Luc is more powerful and filled with more arrogance. I also liked that this time around the female protagonist has mixed feelings regarding her lover interest, that she was the one indifferent to him and not the other way around. I enjoyed how she made Evie complex about her feelings and that although there was attraction on both parts, it wasn’t instalove, she made smart about her choices and skeptical as she should be. No one in real life just automatically goes with the flow. She made her have time to think about things and come up with a logical conclusion. Also, there was not pressure from Luc, he respected Evie and was a true gentleman and he was realistic. All in all this would be great for TV and there is nothing like it on the market, television is in need for great paranormal stories, and when they find this gem, they know they stumbled onto something great. I’m glad I got to read this story early from Netgalley and tell everyone how awesome this book is and even more awesome it would be on TV. I hope everyone enjoys The Lux series and now The Darkest star as much as I have. So Until Next Time!
