Origin (Lux #4)

By Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fav Quote:

"There’re one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?”


“I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you.” Part of me couldn’t believe something that cheesy had come out of my mouth, but it was also so beautifully true. “I want a year’s worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up.”

This book is freaking UNBELIEVABLE (in a very good way) !

Origin starts where Opal left things. After being captured, the only thing Kat can do is survive. But, serviving isn't as easy as one would have thought in her case. Especially, when your every action is watched...

Daemon is on a mission! He's determined to save Kat or die trying. With a crazy plan in mind, Daemon is ready to take out the world, just to see her again. But going after Kat entails endangering Dee, Dawson, Bethany and even himself.

"Did you think you could stop me?” Power shot from me, smacking into the door behind Dawson, blowing it off the hinges and into the house. “I’ll burn the world down to save her.”
He thought he was ready for what awaited him at Area 51 (the place where they are currently "staying", aka being held, as "guests" ) but he couldn't be more wrong. Kat and Daemon are about to "find" things that could kill all of them...

"Is she truly worth this?”

"Yes, she is worth everything.”

I never understood what the title "represented" but after reading Oringin I'm fully aware. This book helds so many surprises and has so any twists, that you're sure (or think you are) about something happening but turns out to be exactly the opposite.

Origin has dual POVs, alternating between Kat and Daemon respectively. I really liked that, because for the first time in the series we got to see the real Daemon behind all his "façade". Yeah, his jokes are funny and his arrogance completely sexy but I loved the man behind all this. He has always been funny, protective, arrogant, super strong and all that but I never knew he had his own fears/weaknesses.

“I was terrified the whole time they had you and I didn’t know where you were. I was scared out of my mind that I would never see you again or get to hold you. And when I did see you? I was afraid I’d never hear you laugh again or see your beautiful smile. So, yeah, I lied. I was terrified. I’m still lying.”

Furthermore, I loved that we got to see more of Luc and Paris (it's so difficult mentioning him) who were absofuckinglutely AMAZING, we met a new character Archer (dyinggggggggg) who was the embodiment of perfection and believe it or not Dee, Dawson, Bethany, Ash, Andrew and Matthew played a HUGE role in this book. I did't want to mention this one but... we get to see Blake too. Just let me tell you that I still cannot conceive all the things that happened (I think I'm denial).

All in all, I can't say how much I loved this book and I absolutely recommend it. This this book is a cliffhanger has not a HEA (ok, not for all), the next book isn't coming out until next year. You have being warned!!!

If you really want to understand how far things are getting in this book, just look at the cover! I think that says much about what's occuring in this book.

Last but not least, the title of the fifth and last book (SO SOOOOOOOO SAD ABOUT THAT) has been revealed:

Opposition will release Summer 2014 from Entangled Teen.

There will be no ARCs of this title as it is the last title in the series and there will be limited teasers from this book, but I do have a sneak peek at the opening page. For those who have not read Origin, this really isn’t too spoilery, but you will probably be crazily confused by it.

Sneak Peek Starts Below:


I always had this plan for the off chance I was around for the end of the world. I’d climb up on my roof top, turn up the radio, blast R.E.M.’s It’s The End of The World, and watch it all go down from my lofty perch.

Except real life rarely turned out that cool.

And it was really happening—it was the end of the world as we knew it, and I sure as hell didn’t feel fine.

Everything had changed and we had been the catalyst for it all.

End of Sneak Peek.

Synopsis (of Origin)

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?

  1. See now, everyone keeps saying it's a cliffhanger ending, but that really depends on your definition of a cliffhanger, which I felt was the case for Opal, but not for Origin. But that's IMO. Anyways, I loved the fact that it was dual POVs and it was def fun seeing Luc and Paris again. Great review!
