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.

It has been awhile since I actually finished The Brightest Night but while I was able to keep reading other books I couldn’t really get myself to review it. I usually only read backlist books so reading a newish book with cliffhanger wasn’t something I was preparing myself for even if I should’ve.

This isn’t the official cover for the hardcover book but I really love that fanmade purple one and I didn’t find a cover for the signed hardcover I actually have.

“I always am but I promise. Nothing will ever steal me away from you, Evie. Nothing.”

I was exited to see Evie having scenes with side characters and we finally had Hunter content! I hate how they couldn’t trust Evie though but thankfully now Luc trusted her completely. He didn’t even hesitate like when her mother was around. I’m was glad to see Evie becoming a strong character who didn’t need Luc protecting her or standing in front of her. She’s no damsel in stress and she can keep people she loves safe as long as she doesn’t loose herself.

All in all I don’t think much happened until the ending? After being so exited when I finished the second book I just wasn’t in love with the third one. And now I might need to wait years for the next book. This series means a lot more to me now that it did after the first book.

3.5 stars
