Origin by Jennifer Armentrout, Book Four of the bestselling Lux seriesDaemon will do anything to get Katy back.
After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he's facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.All Katy can do is survive. Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don't seem entirely crazy, but the group's goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?Together, they can face anything. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

Jennifer Armentrout. That woman. She does it again! She completely wrapped me up in the story, had my heart breaking one minute and then smirking at the snark the next. I love that! I love being so immersed in the story and having the characters feel so real that I feel like I can reach into the book and touch them. And who wouldn’t want to touch Daemon??

Oh, you hear that? Yep, that’s the sound of Daemon’s ego growing. Yeah, I didn’t think it could grow any bigger either – who knew? =)

Origin picks off right where we left off, with Katy having been captured by Daedelus. Daemon is one very, very pissed off alien about this. He’s going to “burn the world down to save her” and I’m sorry, but is there anything hotter than a man (well, alien) saying that? No. No, there isn’t.

The first part of the book deals with finding out more about Daedelus and what Katy has to go through being in their clutches. I so very badly wanted to comfort Daemon! His frustration and desperation become yours — thus is the magic of Jennifer’s writing. Having dual POVs was fantastic! I freaking loved being in Daemon’s head. He is one cocky, full of himself alien and even as I found myself rolling my eyes at him along with Katy, I was totally loving it at the same time. Which he totally knows. I can practically feel his smirk as I write this. I found myself laughing so many times at little comments he’d make. Snarky, arrogant, yet so damn sweet. Daemon freaking Black. Daemon, just know that you’re melting hearts everywhere. Wait, what am I saying. Of COURSE he knows and he loves it.

In Origin, there are a LOT of holy-crap-wow-what! moments, new, crazy, unbelievable things revealed and it all just left me marveling at Jennifer’s brilliance. It’s so awesome that I really had absolutely no idea what would happen. Everything happened! Things go nuts! You find out about origins, crazy powers, a Hunter sighting and most importantly… people die! If you haven’t already, go pick yourself up Origin (you know you want/need Daemon gracing your bookshelves) and read this hell-of-a-ride, amazing installment to the Lux series! And give yourself a good chunk of time because you’re not going to be able to put it down. I was up until 4 in the morning!

My Rating: 5 Stars!

  2. I agree with you, Origin definitely was filled with lots of holly crap moments! Awesome ones! Great review Wendy! And to answer your question, no I didn’t get Origin signed because they only shipped US 🙁
