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?


“Origin” was an unbelievably amazing and mind-blowing fourth installment in the Lux series. Seriously, it blew my mind in almost every way and pretty much left me speechless. I laughed and cried throughout, among other emotions, and it certainly took me on a roller coaster ride – one I will never soon forget. Ever. Jennifer L. Armentrout sure knows how to shock the ever-loving crap out of you, and at the same time, leave you craving for more. She definitely has an extraordinary and creative talent, but hopefully you already know that. :)

     Most of the characters were amazing and completely blew me away, especially Katy and Daemon. They were amazing and perfect and so many other wonderful things. I actually loved them the most in this book, and I’m sure I will love them even more in the last novel. They were extraordinary, to say the least. I loved how the book was told from both of their POV, which was an awesome change since the previous books had only been from Katy’s POV. Even after all they went through in the hands of the evilly sick and twisted Daedalus, they still managed to come out of it stronger than ever – maybe a little worse for wear, but still okay. They had each other, and that was all that mattered. A few events concerning them totally blew my mind and left me grinning from ear to ear. I was also pleasantly surprised to see some old faces and the introduction of a new character, Archer. I liked him almost immediately and cannot wait to see what happens with him and another character. They were all so very entertaining and it was effortless to connect with them. I truly loved them all and am so excited to read more about them!

     The storyline kept getting better and better and even more detailed and intricate –  and maybe a little more disturbing where Daedalus was concerned. They were one messed up organization, and though there were certain aspects about them that were better than others, they were still evil and I did not care for them at all. I really hope they get what’s coming to them.

     I loved almost everything about “Origin,” and it was my favorite installment yet. The ending left me totally speechless and definitely left me craving for the next one!


FIVE “Luxen” Stars!
