REVIEW: Origin (Lux #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Origin (Lux, #4)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Daemon 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?

*sighs* I love Daemon!!! - 5Stars

This book… I’ve waited sooo long for it and now that I’ve finished it I’m sad. It was everything I wished it to be… it was everything I was looking for… it was just perfect! The Lux series is one of my favorite paranormal YA series ever, and I don’t mind that there are less steamy scenes in it than in the books I use to read because Jennifer’s books have it all. Seriously, I have nothing, absolutely nothing to complain about. The story starts where the other story left off –Kat being captured, locked in in Mount Weather, holding captive by Daedalus. The book is filled with lots of action and suspense!! I will try to keep this review spoiler free for the people who haven’t read the first three books.

Daemon *sigh*… he’s even more perfect in Origin. He’s still this cocky handsome lil bastard that puts a smile on your face. He made me laugh, swoon, and love him even more. His determination so save Kat put me in awe and I effing loved reading it. He’s strong and when he put his mind into something there was no way of turning back. In Origin we can experience a softer side of him as well. He’s expressing his feeling for Kat and it’s heart melting adorable to read his inner dialogues –goner potential ;) 

“I’ll burn the world down to save her.”

“You’re my – you’re my everything, Kat.”

My thoughts spun further back, to the first time I’d seen Kat walking out her front door, heading over to my house to ask direction. Even if I hadn’t wanted to admit it in that moment, she had sunk her claws into me, and I didn’t want them out.” 

Kat… poor Kat had to endure so much pain while being held captive. Geez, those people at Deadalus were cruel, sadistic, and pure evil. I got sick from the things they made Kat do and as well as Daemon. But I was in awe of her; she was strong and tried to stay strong. She did hold on to her sweet memories of Daemon, their time together, hoping and praying if she’ll ever see him again. And deep down I knew Daemon will come and get her that both will find a way out and THANK GOD I was right!!

“My memories after the doors had sealed shut were hazy. Daemon’s parting words haunted every moment. I love you Kat. Always have. Always will.”
Those two are such an adorable and funny couple it was pure bliss to read about them in Origin. Their dialogues cracked me up sometimes cause even though everyone, and I mean everyone wants to harm they, Daemon can’t shut up and throws out the funniest stuff …

“Shut up.” She brushed her lips against mine. I nipped at her lower lip, and a rosy flush appeared on her cheeks. “Hmm, you know how I like it when you get all mouthy with me.” “You’re mental” …. LOL!!

The book introduced a new character, Archer, and I really liked him. He is an interesting and very complex character, which leads back to the title of the book –but nope, I won’t spoil anything, just read for yourself. In the beginning I wasn’t quite sure what he’s up against but THEN when I knew his plan, I was all team Archer. You’ll like him.

Origin is written in dual POV, and the people that know me, know how much I love that. Being in Daemon’s head was great; it made me fall for him even more. This book has so many surprises in it –positive as well as negative- that I was bummed to know the last Lux book will be released next summer *sucks*. And yes, the book ends with an effing cliffhanger and my first thought was: WTH!! I wanted to read more, so much more cause I loved this book so much. So yes, I’ll be sitting impatiently, stalking Jennifer’s authors page, until the last book is being released.

“I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you.” Part of me couldn’t believe something so cheesy had come out of my mouth, but it was also very beautifully true. “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.” When you get to those pages when Daemon pours his heart out, you’ll be goner like me for sure!! 

If you have loved the first 3 books in the Lux series, you WON’T be disappointed at all with Origin. Jennifer delivered another great book.
