Origin is the best book of the Lux series so far.
For some reason, even though I loved this book, I am having trouble writing this review. So I think I will just ramble and see what I come up with instead of pointing out certain things like I usually do.
I am walking away from this book so damn excited that I got to read Daemon’s POV (it was a dual POV with Katy as well). As a girl, I always want to know what a guy is thinking, so getting Daemon’s true feelings for Katy was amazetastic (oh yeah, I just made up a new word. Spread it around, my minions! ;) And, boy, does Daemon have some strong feelings.
Origin starts off close to when Opal ended. Daemon wakes up to people trying to keep him from saving Katy from their enemies’ clutches. Not because they don’t love Katy, they just don’t want Daemon to get hurt. Daemon is having none of that sh*t. He goes out guns blazing to save the girl he loves. He will do ANYTHING to save Katy, and he proves this by doing just that. There are casualties along the way, but nothing will stop Daemon from this mission. He is a man possessed, possessed with love and determination. Daemon makes my ovaries all tingly in this book (oh yeah, I just said that). I can’t help but want what Katy has. Daemon has no limits when it comes to Katy’s safety, and my weird brain thinks that’s romantic.
Katy handled her situation pretty well. I loved that she both played along and rebelled against her captures. Though I wish she wasn’t so easily manipulated, I still loved her determination. Daemon was her rock though. When they finally see each other again, Daemon keeps them going, keeps them hopeful for survival and a future even when the road ahead of them seems bleak.
I loved the new character Archer. He is the strong, handsome, but deadly type. You never know what he is thinking or who’s team he is on, but deep down you feel like he is a good guy. I want to see more of him.
The action was great. The story was amazing because so much happened that nothing can ever be the same, no going back to a normal life for these aliens and their friends. There is a cliffhanger ending, but I am use to it by now, so it didn’t bother me.
There isn’t really anything bad about this book I can point out, I just didn’t feel it was quite 5 star worthy. Other books have excited me more, other books have made me feel more for the characters. Know what I mean?
Okay, wait, I just thought of something I didn’t like. I don’t mind when characters are killed off, I actually liked it sometimes because it causes so much drama. But Armentrout killed off characters in Origin like it was going out of style. It was a freaking free for all. I didn’t see a point to all those deaths one after another.
Katy and Daemon have taken their relationship to a whole other level in Origin. I really truly feel their love is impenetrable. I loved getting Daemon’s POV on their relationship. These two love each other so much it almost hurts to read about.
The sex is young adult but still satisfying for older readers. I love how Daemon makes it so fun and playful.
I would highly recommend Origin. If you love the Lux series then you are going to love this book. Be ready for changes though. A lot happened in this book and it might upset some people, but it will excite a lot of people. Highly recommended.
“So I was thinking, there’re eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day, right? There’re one thousand, four hundred and forty minutes in a day…There’re one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?…I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you…I want a year’s worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up.”
“As close as you’re riding me, man, I feel like I need to take you out to dinner or something. At least, I should get your name.” He punched in a floor number, smirking.
“People call me Archer.”
“I want to get to know every freckle and every curve on a personal level.”
“I think you did that last night.”
“Nah.” He shook his head. “That was just a meet and greet. I want to know their hopes and dreams.”
“A certain bone-deep understanding occurred and my hand tightened around the smaller one I held. It weren’t stars we were staring at. The sky was falling.”
This book takes off there the third one left off, so it should definitely be read in order. I loved that Jennifer switched to writing this book from dual perspectives. In my opinion it developed the storyline further as well as deepened my connection to each of the memorable characters she writes about.
Daemon will stop at nothing to protect Katy. Since she has been captured, he will do anything to make her safe again. This includes putting his entire existence at stake.
I would highly recommend this entire series. It is a fantastic Paranormal read. It is filled with romance, suspence and kept me wanting for more. I can't wait to read the fifth and final book of this series!
