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?

I think…I think that I am in LOVE with this author. I have never been more thrilled to run to the store and pick up a book only to thrust the keys at my husband, tell him to drive so I can sit in the passenger seat and read.

Plot: First off, if you have not read this series, stop reading this and go get the books. Seriously, GO! I can not begin to explain how good these books are. There is something about the books that makes you fall in love with them. It’s the characters, the plot, the elements all nicely tied together to bring the reader an epic story. This plot follows along with the last book left off. Daemon is putting everything he knows aside to save Katy. He will not let anyone, ANYONE stand in his way to save the one that he loves. My goodness….I want to say more but ahhh crapola it’s good. Really, really good.

Love: If you read this series, then you know by now how this love has come to grow. Daemon and Katy started off rocky but slowly they fell in love. At first they were all like, “ROAR!” in each other faces, then they became friends. The best part of this relationship is witnessing the growth over the span of the books. There was no insta-love but two flawed characters coming together. They fought, snapped at each other and then began to realize they are much more similar then they thought. And in this book, their love is tested and is epic. This is it. This is the moment it all comes down to. Deamon and Katy together 4+EVA!

Ending: Umm…WOW. Someone is in trouble. When I read the final chapter, my eyes widen. I just can’t even begin think where it could go now. Well, I could think of plenty of things, but it only makes me anxious at the possibilities of what will happen next.

A fantastic story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Origin is crazy good. It’s one of those stories that will keep your mind racing for days. Completely satisfying, Origin leaves the reader breathless.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I’m behind a book on this series, and I really need to remedy that! So glad to see you loved this one!

  2. Haha I love your first sentence! That’ll be me when Allegiant comes out. Gah, I think I’ve mentioned this before but I really need to pick up this series. Everybody, and I mean everybody, is raving about this newest book in the series. The first book and its cover just did not capture my attention…at all. But I guess it really is worth giving a shot!

    Yikes, I’m so behind in this series. While I love the fact that she doesn’t wait years between books, it also makes it harder for me to keep up. Great review 🙂
