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?
Alright, let's be real. If you're familiar with this series, you know how addicting and awesome it is. If you're not familiar with this series, FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE IT'S ADDICTING AND AWESOME. Seriously, go get your hands on a copy of the first book. Do it now! And then come back and read this. :)
This is one of those books that I don't even know how to talk about. Like...how am I supposed to put all of my feelings into words?! HOW?! It is impossible! So...how about a GIF review? Sound good? EXCELLENT. *opens folder of GIFs*
(By the way, this will be a spoiler-free review!) (Also, "review" is a very loose term here.)
Well, Jennifer L. Armentrout, what can I say?
When I first started reading the book I was just kind of like:
because OH MY GOSH IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING JUST UGHHHHH WHY CAN'T KATY AND DAEMON JUST BE HAPPY UGHHHH
And then the frustration gave way to a general WTF IS HAPPENING I DON'T UNDERSTAND mindset.
Because seriously THIS BOOK IS CRAZY. (In an awesome way.)
And then exciting things started happening and I was all:
ALL THE KATY AND DAEMON FEELS.
ALL OF THE FEELS.
ALL OF THEM.
Their relationship is so beautiful and perfect and they've been through so much together at this point and I just can't handle how adorable they are.
It's so interesting to see how far the two of them have come in their relationship together in all the books. They started off as strangers and then there was all that wonderful romantic tension AND NOW LOOK AT THEM. MY BABIES ARE GROWING UP SO MUCH.
For awhile, I was super excited because everything was going really well and the characters actually seemed happy. I thought that maybe things would be sort of okay instead of terrible and painful.
All of a sudden EVERYTHING FELL APART and I was just like:
AND THEN THE BOOK ENDED. WHAT. HOW. WHY.
HOW CAN YOU JUST END THE BOOK THERE?!
My overall (very mixed) reactions to Origin:
I have to congratulate Jennifer L. Armentrout on writing another amazing book. Even if it did emotionally destroy me.
This series keeps getting better and better with every book!
And now I will wait for the next book.
If you've read Origin, or any of the books in this series, let me know your thoughts in the comments below. If you haven't picked up the first book yet, what are you doing with your life?! Get thee to a bookstore immediately! (And prepare yourself for lots and lots of FEELS.)
