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? (From Goodreads)
JLA strikes again! While I wouldn't call Origin my favourite book in the Lux series, it is definitely a great read!
The dual POV was a necessary addition here, given the circumstances Katy and Daemon found themselves in. Origin would have been pretty boring from only one of their perspectives. I enjoyed being in Daemon's head. Sometimes his actions seem a little psychotic, so understanding what he is thinking was a nice touch.
There was lots of action in this one, including a big fight in Vegas and some crazy new supernatural beings that I think of as the ultimate shit disturbers. I love my action, and Origin did not disappoint. However, in between all this action, there were some slow points. These weren't overwhelmingly slow put-the-book-down-forever moments, and may have just been downtime after the action high, but they were there.
Add the romance and BAM, I was happy. I've said it before, and I will say it again. Jennifer is the QUEEN of sexual tension. I love it. That's all I have to say about that.
If you haven't started this series yet, WTF are you doing?! READ THIS!
