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.
He is the darkest star.
You are the burning shadow.
And together, you will bring about the brightest night.
The thrills, drama, and intrigue continue in the third installment of the Origin series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.

The Brightest Night is the third book in the young adult Origin series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. The Origin series is a young adult paranormal/sci fi romance featuring aliens. It is a spin off of her Lux series, but you do not need to read that series first if you don’t want to. I have not read the Lux series yet, but because I am loving the Origin series so much, I can’t wait to pick up all the books in the Lux series and binge read them! I am not the biggest fan of aliens, but Luc, Emery, Zoe and the whole gang (even Grayson) are really making me rethink my position on aliens. I loved The Brightest Night. I stand by my statement that this is by far my favorite Alien series that I have ever read.
The Brightest Night takes place right after the events of the first book, and now we are all reeling with the bombshell that was dropped on all of us. View Spoiler »Jason Dasher is still alive and he is at the head of the dangerous project that Evie was a part of. « Hide Spoiler The Brightest Night is not overall as action packed as the first two books because so much of the book takes place in one location, but we do learn a ton of information. The mysterious illness that is spreading around, killing people is still very much in play in this book and we are learning more about what it does to the people that it doesn’t kill, and through that we are also learning more about Evie herself. About what has been done to her and about what she can do now. And let me just tell you. If you thought Luc was scary powerful as an Origin, then you are about to be shocked with what Trojan Evie can do. She is crazy powerful and I have a feeling that there is even more to come.
There is also more Evie and Luc romance now that they are officially together, and I was completely loving it! I just love the two of them, and I have such a soft spot for Luc. I love how protective he is of Evie. I adored this series so much, and even though I liked this book just a smidge less than I liked the first two books in the series, I still loved this book! I thought it was fantastic, scary, tense and a completely wild adventure. And the ending! The ending completely gutted me. I need my hands on the fourth book right this second because I have a physical need to see what is going to happen next. The origin series is perfect for fans of paranormal romance and science fiction alike. I am obsessed with the Origin series!
