Mark This Book Monday: Origin by Jennifer L Armentrout!!

For the next Mark This Book Monday one of the most awaited books in a series for this year, the one that as soon as it downloaded into my Kindle app, I just had to start reading!

Origin (Lux, #4)Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Origin is the second to last book in the Lux series and it was so eagerly awaited after the awful cliffhanger from Opal, the previous book!

As always, since this book is part of a series it will be very difficult to avoid spoilers for the previous books, but I will try my best to avoid spoilers and key surprises from this one.

Katy was captured, Daemon is hell bent on getting her back. Daedalus want them both and whatever they have planned is not gonna be something Katy nor Daemon would want to endure.

One of the biggest changes is that we get a dual narrative, from both Katy's and Daemon's point of view. And Daemon's point of view is quite a treat to read: he's cocky, he's emotional, he's funny and he's quite swoony!

Katy continues to grow as a character and continues to show her strenght while dealing to all that Daedalus keep on throwing at her and refusing to bow down and do what they want.

We find out more information about the Luxen, about Daedalus and what they are trying to do and what lengths they'd go to achieve it. And we also get some really shocking and creepy revelations, and yes it involves an explanation of the book title. Power really gets to people's head, and there's nothing like some groups thinking they have the right to whatever they see fit in the name of what they think it's a worthy cause.

This book is full of action, running, plotting and unexpected twists and treasons. There's also plenty of steam, swoony-ness, snarky and witty comments and also what I'd call the Easter Egg mention of the Sweet Evil series by Wendy Higgins that made really laugh out loud while reading!

The ending was also quite a shocker, even if it is not the heartwrenching mess that the ending of Opal was, this is also a "you've got to be kidding me! Woah!" sort of an ending!

Very well deserved 4 stars!!

  1. I still haven't picked up a copy...need to get on that. I've heard mostly awesome things about this book (some disappointment over another cliff-hanger). I'm interested in learning about the book title and reading from Daemon's PoV. Great review Pili!

    1. Thank you Kristen! The cliffhanger is not the kind that Opal had, it's more of a upping the stakes kinda one...
