Product description

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?

Favourite Quote: “Luc set the box of doughnuts down, and I eyed them like they held the answer to life.”

Wow. This is the only word I could think of after finishing this book! It was a crazy journey with so many twists and turns including betrayels,d eaths and a complete new race! I enjoyed it so much one than Opal and give it a 5/5 stars!

Let̢۪s start with the plot, there was a lot of information given during the first quarter, all of which is very important and moves the story along! And the new race, such a good addition to the Lux world! There were numerous action-packed scenes that were just incredible and exciting! As for the twists, there were many and I actually only guessed the Beth one, the rest were complete shocks! And that ending, wow, just speechless and I cannot wait for the last book!

Then there̢۪s the characters, let̢۪s start off with the fact that so many of them died! It was insane and I admire Jennifer L.Armentrout for being brave and going through with them all! There weren̢۪t meaningless to me, infact they made the book more emotional and impacting! Katy and Daemon were awesome as always, bringing in the humour and love that makes this series unique! The rest of the characters were great and I really liked Archer the new character!

Overall this book was awesome and I cannot recommend this series highly enough!

This is one of those series that keeps getting better with each new instalment. In Origin, Katy finds herself captured by the Daedalus and all her worst nightmares come true. Even hearing about what happened to Dawson and Bethany didn't really prepare Katy for what life as captive hybrid would bring. And then there's Daemon. Nothing on Earth - or even on an alien planet - could stop him from saving the girl he loves.

For all those Daemon fans - I think he really shines in this one. He's arrogant, sarcastic but willing to give up everything for Katy. The snarky sarcastic conversations he has were a highlight for me. I love the way Katy and Daemon interact and I'm really rooting for this pair as a couple!

In many ways Origin is a turning point in the series. The first three books were mostly about the love story and the action was secondary. But now things have changed. Don't worry - there's still plenty of fluffy tenderness between the leading pair but the war between our favourite Luxens and the world... it's only just getting started. The dual point-of-view between Katy and Daemon helps bring the urgency of their situation to light. I loved getting to see how Daemon felt about Katy from his eyes and I think this is part of the reason why I'm behind them romantically. They're growing up and it's clear to see that Katy isn't the same girl she was at the start of Obsidian. She's seen the worst life has to offer but she's stronger than I ever expected.

I loved the action in this book. Things are happening and they're happening FAST! Some brilliant new characters are introduced (I want to know more about Archer!) and some old ones reappear. There's a cameo appearance of Hunter and Serena from Obsession (JLA's adult paranormal romance novel that's set in the same universe as the Lux novel). Armentrout isn't afraid to put her characters though hell and I respect her for that.

For all the fans who have been eagerly anticipating Origin since the cliff-hanger at the end of Opal - I think you'll be satisfied and impressed with how things unfold in Origin. This book is exciting, cheeky and romantic. My favourite from this series by far.

By Brandi Kosiner (Brandi Breathes Books) 01 Sep 2013 5

I love everything that she writes, and Origin was no exception. I loved being back with Katy and Daemon, in their heads, in their world, and wrapped up in their steamy and devoted relationships.
Though it was hard because for part of this one, they are separated. Katy sees and endures some pretty horrific things while captured, and shocking truths about the world she thought she understood.
There are some very touching moments, some hot ones between the two, some very intriguing new characters, surprising twists in the plot, and of course some action. There is the usual snark thrown in and I really can't say a lot without spoilers, but if you haven't started this series, I would get on it pronto. I didn't think I would like an alien story but I have fallen head over heels for this world and these characters.
The ending as usual left me open mouthed and wishing that I had Jennifer's computer so I could read the next book NOW, because I have to know more.

Bottom Line: Another work of genius from Jennifer.
