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: Origin by Jessica Khoury

But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home―and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.

Free in the jungle, Pia meets Eio, a boy from a nearby village. Together, they embark on a race against time to discover the truth about Pia’s origin―a truth with deadly consequences that will change their lives forever.created her to be the start of a new immortal race. But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home―and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.

For the most part I enjoyed this book.  I thought the premise of the book was interesting, the characters were developed well and the setting was unique.  I enjoyed Pia’s personality and her internal struggles.  I really liked Aunt Harriet and Ami, I thought they provided some levity to the story.  I also liked the culture and life that Jessica Khoury created for the native people.  I thought that was really well thought out, and loved to read about their rituals and language.  I also thought she created a really neat environment for Little Cam.  Based on her descriptions I could really envision what the compound looked like, and that is really cool.

Sometimes when I read a book I feel like it was written with the purpose of becoming a TV show or movie.  I felt this way with this book.  There were a lot of revelations and plot twists that would translate into a show format.  It was both good and bad for reading in book format.  Some parts felt like I could stop reading and I would be fine with that, others left me wanting to continue reading well into the night.  I felt like there were some dead parts in the middle where it was hard to keep going, and could have been left out.

There were parts of the book that I didn’t care for, but I don’t think you were supposed to like them.  I think they were there to show the evil in some people or more so the cruelty.  I would recommend this book to people who are into the medical syfi genre.  Just a warning the book is 400 pages and sometimes feels every bit of it.  But stick with it and you will enjoy the book after it is all said and done.
