Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Book Review

Title: Origin 
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Publication: August 27, 2013
Series: Lux #4 
Format: Ebook 
My Rating:  ♥♥♥♥♥


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?

My Review:

“I promise you that this isn't going to be our future, Kitten. I will give that to you—a normal life." 
Her eyes glistened. "I don’t expect a normal life. I just expect a life with you”  

I loved this book. I love this series. I love Daemon. Ugh this was so beautiful and amazing. I am so excited to see how this series ends. I want them to live happily ever after! Ugh that cliffhanger ruined me! This one wasn't my favorite of the series but I did love it nonetheless. This has been one of my all time favorite series this year. I cannot get over how amazing this is. 

- Katy
I still love Katy. I hated seeing her go through the stress tests, and I'm pretty sure Daemon would agree with me. This book took an unexpected turn with the Origins but that made it is so cool. Daemon and Katy are just the most adorable couple I have ever seen, it is beautiful seeing they would do absolutely anything to keep one another safe. 

- Daemon
God knows I love Daemon. I loved seeing his point of view through this book as well with Katy's. This is just what I needed to heighten how much I love him. He is very protective, hilarious, amazing, and so much more. I am shocked on how this book ended, I need to read the next one!

Overall, I loved all the characters in this book. The last few chapters were very shocking and very depressing. I am very interested into seeing how this book continues because the ending left hanging with my mouth open. I couldn't believe what happened between Dawson and Beth, how is that going to go? And that last freaking page my god. I need to read the next book soon. I loved this book and this series. Jennifer never seizes to amaze me.


  1. Glad you liked this! I'm so excited to read this!

  2. I cried at the beginning of this book which surprised me... Daemon is such a tough guy and the way he was devastated with Katy being taken...I just couldn't.... I'm glad they found each other. And OMG Ash and Andrew....WHY!!!! Just so many emotions..

    1. I know right! I cried throughout most of this book beginning to end and ugh I know so many emotions and Michael! My god!! This book was shooting in so many different directions!

    2. I actually saw the Michael thing coming! I didn't like him from the start and he seemed off..When it happened "Ha! I knew it! you jerk!"
      But, the betrayal I can never get over is Blake... I gave him so many chances... I trusted him..He deserved that death!

    3. I know right! I didn't trust Black at all, he really deserved it but I wanted Katy to tell Daemon about what he did in the night to her but she never did and I was like :OO
      I saw it coming too with Michael but it was so sad seeing the betrayal from him and how it effected them and what Dawson had to D:

  3. I see her books everywhere, but I haven't read one yet because I don't know if I'll like them!

    Great review. I love how you even described and reviewed each character! :)

    1. I hope you like them if you decide to give them a try! ;)

      Thank you!! :D
