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 Thoughts

“Sometimes the truth is worse than the lie.”

Let me just say that 20 year old me is screaming inside you guys! The Lux series is one of the first series that I read when I started reading all the time and it is still one of my favorites to this day. So to see that years later JLA wrote another book in this world? I was sold before I even read the synopsis.

Even though this story is about Luc, we do get a glimpse at some of our favorite characters. I know what you’re thinking, and yes, we do get glimpses of Daemon. I had to tell the teenager inside me to chill.

As you can see the synopsis doesn’t give you much about the plot so I won’t either. Go in blind, you won’t regret it. Just know that this takes place four years after the invasion in the Opposition book. 

I could do a lot of things. I have done a lot of things, and sometimes, I do hurt people,” he said quietly, softly. 

“But I could never hurt you.”

The building relationship between Evie and Luc was setting me on fire. For a YA book, there was hella chemistry between these two! I love them both and I ship them so damn hard!

This has action, romance, and some badass aliens. Even if you haven’t read the Lux series I highly recommend this. And if you are a fan, what the hell are you waiting for? Pre-order this one!
