Book Review: Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Origin (Lux, #4)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?

 

Now are you not supper happy for listening to me and getting the Lux Consequences book???  So this is the book where stuff starts to get real.  It gets darker and the mood changes from Oh cool an Alien, to Oh man, people are getting hurt.  The POV changes from mostly Katy to mostly Daemon which is nice.  It adds something to the books.  More depth I guess?  Anyway it was a nice change to hear what Daemon was thinking.

I really like Archer, and the whole story about the Origins.  They are super cool, and I was glad Luc had more of a presence in the is book.  Although those children are super creepy!   Its good when you are introduced to new characters in a series so things don’t get dull.  And this series is anything but dull.  This book is a thrill a minute and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

So I won’t give away spoilers but that part towards the end with Daemon and Katy, OMG, so hot then so sweet!  *Fanning my self*  And that ending, lets just say, go ahead and buy the last book right away.  The only thing I didn’t really care for was the stuff that happened in Vegas.  I get why it happened I just am a peaceful person and wasn’t a fan of all the fighting.  It was still good don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t for me.

Love, love, love

Book Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

13362536 After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

 

WHY ARE MORE PEOPLE NOT READING THIS  SERIES?  I really would like to discuss this book with people but for some reason people are not picking it up.  Trust me read the books, its worth it.  And when you are done comment or tweet me @missmisD to discuss please!  Oh and just a helpful hint, buy the Lux Consequences version so you can read Opal and immediately read Origin, trust me you will thank me for that.  I still can’t find the books in the major book chain stores so you might have to get them from Amazon.

First off, poor Dawson, I really felt for him.  I liked that this book was the all about Dawson book, it really focused on his stuff.  It gave me a little break from the Katy and Daemon drama.  Don’t get me wrong they are still the main characters but the book was more about Dawson.  And bless him he is a world full of crazy.

And um can we talk about Blake for a minute?  Super creepy right?  Like I would have taken off his manhood had he pulled that stunt he did on Katy on me.  Anyway back to the book.  See I love this series because you loose your self in the story, the real world just floats away and you are right next to Katy and Daemon living the adventure with them.  It is a fast moving but hilarious book and I love that they take the time to do normal teenage things like Prom.  That was cute and a nice break between all the action.  And the ending, this is when you will be glad you bought the Lux Consequences book with Opal and Origin together, talk about a cliff hanger.

Such an awesome book!!!!

Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

12578077Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

I think I love Jennifer Armentrout.  She basically wrote this book for book bloggers, I mean the the main character is a YA book blogger and she is freaking awesome.  Now I am about to say something slightly controversial so bare with me here, this book is what Twilight could have been.  When I started reading it I got slightly scared, because it had some similarities to Twilight.  Girl moves to small town, meets a mysterious guy who doesn’t like her, he acts weird, and has a big family, and of course has a big secret.  Now do you see where I am coming from?  Fortunately our protagonist is not a vapid, shallow girl like Bella.  Katy is awesome, she is a reader and a blogger (bonus points), she is smart, and witty, and she doesn’t need some guy who is an a hole around her.

So I was a little skeptical that this book was about aliens.  It’s not something that is done much in the YA genre, and when it is done the aliens are not the main characters in the book.  But I liked what Jennifer (I feel like we are on first name bases now, we have a major friendship happening in my head in a none creepy way) did with the characters.  I understood their standoff ways and even thought well yeah, that’s how I would be.  I must say Daemon is hot.  But so are all the Aliens, one day I would like to have a supernatural character be not so hot…

I really appreciated that Katy wasn’t some helpless girl that stuck with the hot dude even know he treated her like crap.  She has backbone and chutzpah (sometimes I turn into a Jewish old lady).  Even at the end of the book when he starts to admit he likes her, she is skeptical and keeps him at arms length.  That is awesome and exactly how she should react.

Lets talk about the action in this book because it is not all about the romance.  I really dug the idea of having the light and dark dichotomy.  It was simple but at the same time complex.  And it causes some amount of tension and some awesome fight scenes in the book.  That thing that happened at the end, well that was something.  It was weird and I didn’t quite understand it.  But it was better explained in the other book (Onyx) that was ever so cleverly attached to Obsidian for my reading pleasure (I have Lux beginnings).  In fact it was so convenient that I didn’t stop reading once I finished Obsidian.  I have also learned there are 5 books so expect more reviews from me soon!

I would highly recommend this book.  Please ignore the similarities to Twilight, this is much better I promise!
