[Book Review] The Brightest Night by Jennifer L. Armentrout


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.

She is the eye of the storm

Crap on a cracker! This book! It made me laugh and smile and feel all the nice feels and then brutely ripped by my still-beating heart from my chest. Why Jen? Why?

Luc and Evie are still reeling from the major bombshell dropped at the end of the last book. Jason Dasher is alive and well. Now they must navigate Evie’s newly unlocked powers in hopes to control them, but with more and more secrets coming to light this is no walk in the park.

The story picks back up right where book 2 ended and from there gets more and more awesome, lots of familiar faces pop up, it’s part of what made reading this book such a joy. There are so many twists that I didn’t see coming and then ending…. well I’m still not over it. I love how JLA takes everything you think you know and then turns it on its head – truly great writing.

Loved the character development from Evie in the book, she really grows and starts owning who she is and accepting what she is, its fantastic to see how far she has come. Luc and Evie together are just magic, I thoroughly enjoyed all their banter as well as the tender emotional moments they share. Also, Luc’s snark is on point as per usual – any time he disagrees with someone it’s just super entertaining.

In a nutshell…

An absolute must read – just be prepared to expect anything.

My Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
