L'intrigue se situe à l'époque de Damon Ridenow — dont Kennard Alton est d'ailleurs le neveu — mais à aucun second on ne retrouve les thématiques ni même les évènements des trois autres tomes de ce cycle. Il y a là un décalage qui casse quelque peu l. a. dynamique d'ensemble du cycle. Même s'il se lit agréablement, cet épisode ne fait qu'enchaîner les events manquées de mieux approfondir l'univers de Ténébreuse, ce qui est très frustrant pour le lecteur. Quelques réflexions intéressantes sont esquissées sur l'évolution des sociétés, avec los angeles comparaison entre terriens et ténébrans, très différents, bien qu'issus de l. a. même souche. Mais los angeles half est faite trop belle aux tribulations des deux kids, avec strength rebondissements et beaucoup de bons sentiments.

Avec ses deux héros teens, L'étoile du chance aurait été mieux placé dans une assortment de littérature jeunesse. Il y a là une évidente erreur de casting, et de ce fait ce roman se situe bien en dessous de ce que l'on est en droit d'attendre dans le cadre d'un projet aussi ambitieux. Ce caractère très inégal est du reste l'un des désagréments du cycle de Ténébreuse.
