Origin (The Lux Series) by Jennifer 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? 

Darra's Review:

I cannot express enough how much I love this series. Never a dull moment. Daemon is my one true alien love(not that their are many aliens, but he is exceptional). I can tell you that I don't believe I have read a series as good as the Lux Series...ever.

I really do like Katy. She is badass and does not take any crap from Daemon. The last book, Opal, left me screaming at my nook. I almost wanted to send an email to Jennifer expressing how distraught I was to leave me hanging till August.

Now I have read Origin. And it is as great as all of her other books. Jennifer writes the best characters and Daemon is the perfect amount of Hot, funny, smartass and loving. Yes, I said that. You get to finally see that side of him.

I give this book a 4.8. Sunny and I can't confirm this yet since the series is not over, but we may give the Lux Series a perfect score overall. Don't tell anyone!

Sunny's Review:

So most of you know that I dragged my feet before reading this series. I mean seriously...ALIENS in high school...give me a break...yeah I was wrong. OMG I love it. I love the banter between Katy and Daemon. Even when they are being all lovey dovey-ish they exchange quips. LOVE IT!

Like Darra I was extremely distraught after Opal and my eyeballs may have leaked a little (Jennifer did recieve an email from me).  I mean it was seriously traumatizing and it was not any better the 2nd time around (yes I reread this series too.)  So this book you get to see MORE Daemon. Jennifer writes from his POV as well as Katy. I love books like that...for some reason the guy POV is just better. I feel like you have to love Daemon even more since you get to see what he is really thinking about her.  You also get to see a lot more Dawson & Bethany which is really great. You get to meet some new people and of course you get to see Luc again. I absolutely love the scene between Daemon and Hunter that you don't get to see in Obsession. I mean this book is just beyond AMAZING!!!

I am going to go with Darra and give this book a HIGH 4.8 out of 5 stars. LOVE IT and don't know how I am going to make it another year for the next book...oh wait...Sentinel is coming out in November...that should hold me for a day or two. (That book is the end of Jennifer's Covenant Series.)
