Review: Origin by Jennifer Armentrout

Origin (Lux, #4)
Origin 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?

    I love everything that she writes, and Origin was no exception. I loved being back with Katy and Daemon, in their heads, in their world, and wrapped up in their steamy and devoted relationships. 
   Though it was hard because for part of this one, they are separated. Katy sees and endures some pretty horrific things while captured, and shocking truths about the world she thought she understood. 
    There are some very touching moments, some hot ones between the two, some very intriguing new characters, surprising twists in the plot, and of course some action. There is the usual snark thrown in and I really can't say a lot without spoilers, but if you haven't started this series, I would get on it pronto. I didn't think I would like an alien story but I have fallen head over heels for this world and these characters. 
    The ending as usual left me open mouthed and wishing that I had Jennifer's computer so I could read the next book NOW, because I have to know more. 

Bottom Line: Another work of genius from Jennifer.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Would you want to know if there were aleins among us.

  1. Me too! I thought I wouldn't like an alien story but I ended up loving this series so much. :)

  2. I haven't read this series, aliens don't really appeal to me however I think I might like this one.

    P.S. Not sure if this is relevant but I like Pepe and Stella better as cover models.

  3. I know I need to read this! Glad you loved it.

  4. Squee!! I need to get this now!! I am trying to get through some other books before I purchase anything new, but it is becoming so hard! Awesome review!

    Ahem.... take a look around you next time you go out... aliens are all around us! *winks*

  5. I'm so behind on this series it's NOT funny. :( So glad that this one also lives up to her fabulous writing. I can't wait to get to it!

  6. I'm reading this one but had to set it aside for some other things I'm reviewing! Ack I hate her endings. They leave me dying for the next book! It's all good when I had three or four to read at a time, but now I've read everything!! Yes, I skipped to the end. I had to know. And I'll be on pins and needles until the next book comes out!


    I'd love to know if aliens are among us. I really don't believe we are the only thing out here. There has to be more. And yes, they'd have to be more intelligent than us!

  7. So glad you enjoyed this! I just got my copy in the mail a couple a days ago and I can't wait to start it. Great review!

  8. I'm behind on this series, but I'm glad to hear this was epic awesomeness! Hopefully I can catch up here soon!

  9. You always come up with the best discussion questions, love them! I'm not sure if I would want to know, and I don't think they would want us to know ;) I really need to catch up with this series!

  10. I bought this the day it was out but the cliffhanger ending it really making me not want to pick up this book. But then again, which JLA book doesn't have a shocking ending? I'm so glad that you gave this a 5 star rating because I wasn't very satisfied with Opal, especially Katy's behavior. But it's looks like she matured a lot in this installment and I can't wait to see this new Katy. Fabulous review, Brandi! :)

  11. I was sure that it was awesome, I'm glad it's the case, so curious now!

  12. I really need to read this series!

  13. Obsessed with this series and even more excited to read this new installment now :)

  14. I never thought that I would love an alien book as much as I love this one. I also never thought it would go in the direction that it has all of a sudden gone. This one just turned everything up 10 times. I loved it! It is really hard to talk about this one without giving anything away though. So glad you enjoyed it as well :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
