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

If you haven't read the first book of this series, please go here to check my review. This review will spoil the rest of the books for you. If you have read up til Opal, you can go ahead and continue reading this review. 


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 is extremely action packed and fun to read. It's by far my favorite book in the series, it didn't have a boring second, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this. 

Daemon and Katy are my favorite fictional couple and I'm in love with Daemon. The romance is on point and I felt jealous the whole time! 

SPOILERS. If you have read Origin, highlight the following to continue reading the review. 

So, Archer, I was completely convinced that Archer was Daemon the whole time and that he took the form of a trusted man inside of Mount Weather to protect Katy. I came to the realization that that was not the case when Daemon was in the elevator with Archer, but Daemon was seriously so smart. He knew that this place is Area 51 because he came here before and that made my heart jump with excitement. 

Kat was holding up well, but she was seriously dumb to kill Blake; she knew that he was goading her. She shouldn't have lost her cool, but can we blame her? No. She has went through some crappy time and she has reached her maximum tolerant level, they pushed her way too far. 

One thing that got on my nerves was Daemon not admitting to loving Katy at first, but he got over that towards the end of the book and I loved every second of the Daemon/Katy time they had together. It gave my heart the fuzzies. Their love is purely beautiful and I would like to thank Jennifer L. Armentrout for setting extremely high expectations that non-fictional guys won't ever live up to! Daemon is all what I want in a guy and he isn't real -- at least to some people, to me, he totally is real..

Archer was a bad-ass, he had this eerie demeanor. He was friendly and intended to help them, I was so blessed that Luc was truthful. Unleashing the Origins wasn't a smart idea, they still don't fully know what Origins are capable of and how they would react to their surroundings on their own and not in a confined area. I still don't quite get why didn't the Origins destroy Mount Weather along with Dasher and Nancy? Daedalus would be over so that Daemon and Katy would have one less thing to worry about. 

Did anyone else expect Beth being pregnant? I knew right the second Katy said:

  "She didn't look just tired; she looked absolutely exhausted."

and when Dawson said: 

 "Eat," he said quietly to her. "You need to ear at least two of these."
  She laughed softly. "I don't know about two." 

It was so obvious that I smirked when Dawson dropped the bomb on Daemon. I just can't wrap my head around one thing though, why would Daedalus let go of Dawson and Bethany when the mutation was perfect? Didn't they want some more Origins? 

Luc still haven't asked Daemon for a favor, remember when they first saw Luc and he asked Katy and Daemon for a favor in exchange for bringing down the security system for them? Was the LH-11 his huge favor? What is Luc going to do with it anyways? I thought it will really go downhill from there. And it did..

Matthew was the last person I would expect to betray them, I was hurt beyond repair. His reasons were stupid, that explains how he freaked out and was angry when both Kat and Daemon were getting married, he thought they escaped. 

The best part of this whole entire book was the part where they exposed themselves, I still can't believe they did that. Why did Jennifer kill off the rest of the Thompsons and Paris? Their loss actually hurt, even if I didn't like them all that much. I grew a bond to these characters, of course I get that she couldn't kill off Beth nor Luc and Ash was better off dead anyway, since her brother was. The moment Paris was dead, I thought Luc was too. I believed that Paris was his father or something, I don't understand their relationship.. I forgot that Luc was an Origin -- not a hybrid for a second. 

Overall, this was such a great book, I loved every second of it. My depression level rose to the roof, yes; because Daemon is my kind of guy and I'm extremely jealous of Katy, but I love the two together. 

Those were my thoughts on Origin, if you have read the Lux series tell me down below which book was your favorite :) (Please don't spoil me on Opposition.)

Check out what I've thought of the other books:
