  "She’d always be the one.
Everyone else was just a generic brand."

Ahhh I just love it when JLA writes in the opposite POV.🥺😂

Also, love how we see what thoughts he was able to pick off of Evie.🤣
Oh Luc.🥰💖

Esta escena sigue siendo igual de memorable en esta segunda lectura que en la primera, no importa si esta desde el punto de vista de Evelyn o de Luc, ademas me hace feliz que las autoras nos regalen escenas de este tipo desde el pov de el protagonista masculino.

Estoy deseando que la editorial publique el segundo libro de la saga Origin, me muero por saber que pasara en el segundo tomo.

3 Estrellas!

I almost cried reading that because Luc lost Nadia and it might probably be the hardest thing for him to have to stay away from her yet still love her "with every breath" he takes. He’s probably one of the strongest—faithfulnest—heroes I know and for that, he has all my respect. I’m so ready—mommy I’m scared—for book 3.

"I was hers even if she no longer remembered that."

Luc's pov is everything. Hopefully we'll get more in the next books or at least a bonus scene, something 😭❤❤❤❤❤

Ummmm... How do we get JL Armentrout to write the entire book in Luc's perspective?


Loved it. Nothing else needs to be said...

But I am going to.

Could Luc be any better?


He is perfection and I adore everything about him. Also, does this mean that Grayson actually likes Evie and that is why he treats her the way he does? Was anyone else reading that? I thought it was probably because he was in love with Luc, but now... I don't know. I just... I just need more! Come on!

Knowing I should let this go, tell her she needed to leave and that she could never come back, I wasn’t at all surprised when I did the exact opposite. 

Luc😭 I read this while I was half way through the Darkest Star because I stumbled on to it and I’m glad I didn’t read it before and spoil the whole book for myself.

I also have to include one other amazing quote from this...

She thought I… I was the most arrogant person she ever met. If she remembered meeting Daemon Black, she would know that was

It was written in such a beautiful /pure way that you can't stand the idea that it's not real; that it was JUST A BOOK
This is why Jennifer is one of my favorites ...she has this way of making her writings Stay with you; in your mind and heart even after you finish reading her work and start other books
Well deserved 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 can't wait for more

Samen met The Brightest Night, gaf uitgeverij Zomer & Keuning ook de kleine novelle ‘Like the First Time’ uit. Het moment waarop Evie samen met haar vriendin naar de Fortoken gaat om een avondje te dansen zal iedereen die deze boeken gelezen heeft zich nog wel goed kunnen herinneren. In deze novelle lees je dit moment opnieuw, maar dan vanuit Luc’s perspectief. En wat een heerlijk stuk om te lezen. Zijn arrogante houding komt goed naar voren, maar wat het vooral interessant maakt is dat Luc zich ...more

And none of them knew they could never be the one.
Because she already existed, and if even if she had left this world, she’d still be the one. She’d always be the one.

This is the first encounter of Luc and Evie in Foretoken in Lus's POV and you can read it online here!

I totally love reading the other MC POV and I really would love a book just about their life before everything and it being told by Luc. It would be so so so so cute.

I was so excited about it, but there was so little it added. most of it is just copy paste from the first few chapters of darkest shadow, sprinkled with some input from luc. Jen really struggles with second pov books, most of the additions felt like trying to hard.
HOWEVER, being completely and utterly in love with luc, this was a nice dive back to the origin series, and to all of us who are impatiently waiting for the next origin to come out (OMG, WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED I JUST CANT HANDLE THIS

I don't typically like reading a book from another person's POV. In most situations, it's from someone's POV I don't really care about and we really don't learn anything new. But after JLA has written the first three Lux books from Daemon's POV and we learned SO MUCH, I knew I needed to read this story.
I enjoyed seeing the beginning of this new series from Lux's POV. From Evie's POV all we saw was Lux being a jerk. But here we see why he acted the way he did. Why he reacted to seeing Evie and e

I love Luc with my whole life, idk but I feel like I need to protect him from everything!! Is like my little baby (and I know he’s the most powerful guy)
I loved to read this part of the story from the PoV of Luc, he and Evie? Are all that is alright in this world. ✨Simple.✨

Amo leer historias cortitas desde el punto de vista del otro protagonista, y como amo a Luc, leerlo a él y sus pensamientos fue lo mejor.
