The thrills, drama, and intrigue continue in the third installment of the Origin series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.

He is the darkest star.
You are the burning shadow.
And together, you will bring about the brightest night.

Less than a year ago, Evelyn Dasher was a normal girl, living an unremarkable life.

Now, she’s on the run, under the protection of the beautiful, deadly inhuman Luc. She’s been betrayed by those who were closest to her. And she’s learned truths about herself that she never saw coming–things she once knew, and was made to forget. Truths with devastating consequences. She’s caught in the eye of the storm.

MY REVIEW

“If you were letters on a page, you’d be the fine print.”

“When am I supposed to thank you, Luc?” “When I do something worth thanking me for.”

“You’re the burning shadow and he’s the darkest star, and together, you will bring about the darkest night.”

Another thrilling and exciting installment of the Origin Series!

The Brightest Night picks up right where The Burning Shadow left off and kept me on the edge of my seat right until the very end. When we meet up with Evelyn, she’s on the run and under the protection of Luc. Trust doesn’t come easy to Evelyn, as those who were the closest have betrayed her in the past. Her memories may have been gone, but they are certainly not forgotten. Truths that were once hidden will be revealed and have devastating consequences. Forget everything you thought you knew and hold on because The Brightest Night is sure to take readers on one wild ride…

The Brightest Night was everything that I was hoping it would be. It picked up right where the last book left off and had me hooked from the very first page. There is so much I want to say right now, but I absolutely can’t! So, I’ll leave you with this. The Brightest Night is thrilling and exciting. There are dangers around every corner. There are some achingly beautiful moments and a romance that is sure to make readers swoon. Truths will be revealed and the floor will be ripped out from you. I can tell you this, I was in no way prepared for the last 10% or so of this book. I thought I was on the right track and knew how the story was going to play out and let me tell you, I was dead wrong. This was a twist and turn I didn’t see coming. Everything I thought I knew was gone in a snap of a finger and know I’m sitting here dying to know what in the world is going to happen next!

Jennifer Armentrout has once again blown me away with her incredible writing and story-telling. She gave me a story filled with so many emotions and unexpected turns and I loved every single second of it. The Brightest Night was a terrific read from beginning to end and I’ll be anxiously waiting for the next installment of the Origin Series.

Review: Stardust (Half Light #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Posted on

What if the one you thought was your savior was actually your captor?

The earth was never destroyed. A few words uttered by a stranger change Rachel’s life forever. After years of believing earth is gone, Rachel discovers that she cannot trust anything she thought was true or anyone she thought she loved, including the alien prince she was bound to spend her life with. Terrified and angry she takes a chance— and returns to earth.

College sophomore Noah is just going through the motions. He is numb to everything and everyone since tragedy took his brother away far too soon. All he wants to do is survive another year of school until everything changes— he meets her.

Not quite sure what to make of Rachel’s sudden appearance on his doorstep, Noah offers her help, and she unwittingly pulls him into a mess of intergalactic proportions. As the stakes are raised, their attraction to one another builds into something so much more than stardust.


My Review

Oh my goodness!! I am so excited for this new series from Alyssa Rose Ivy!!! Stardust is the first book in the Half Light Series and let me tell you, I am HOOKED!!! Stardust is fresh, exciting and totally intriguing. I fell in love with the plot and the characters from the very first page. It was so different and had me devouring the pages quickly. I was intrigued by Rachel and just had to know more. In a span of moments, her life would be turned upside down yet again and now she would find herself questioning everything she thought she knew. The betrayal runs deep and has Rachel making an unexpected decision. A decision that will once again change her course….

Stardust gives the Half Light Series one heck of a start. It’s exciting and thrilling and I honestly can’t wait for more. This is definitely a great book to spend your afternoon getting lost in. I can not wait to see where this story is going to go next and see just how Rachel’s story is going to play out!
