Series - Lux #4
Genre - YA Paranormal Romance

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?

Origin begins right after the end of Opal. Katy didn’t make it out of the compound and Daemon was forced to go on without her but he’s intent on getting her back. Daedalus who has captured Katy moves her across the country to their research and test facility hoping to draw Daemon out. What Daedalus is doing at the new compound is more than Katy could have imagined. With both the hybrid and Luxen dna they have created a new race called Origin’s who are stronger than the Luxen.

They claim to be testing Katy to see how she handles stress but as the tests continue to push her they put her up against a test that pushes her to the limits. When Daemon arrives at the facility they are shocked to be sharing a bathroom but when they quickly learn that Daedalus has a dark plan and only Daemon and Katy are exactly what they are looking for. Will they escape from Daedalus? Who is Archer a friend or foe? I’m trying to keep it short without revealing too much.

I love Katy she’s my perfect character when it comes to books I wish they were all nerdy book addicts like her. I also love Daemon he’s perfect for Katy in every way willing to risk everything to have her in his life. I also have always liked several of the supporting characters like Dee she makes smile and I hated seeing her sad but I see positives for her future. I also like Archer and Luc they are new unique characters that I hope to see more of in the next book.

I can’t believe only one book left I’m already sad to see it ending. Origin is the 4th installment in the Lux series but might be my favorite so far. I love all the twists that keep getting thrown at Katy and Daemon through the story they kept me on the edge waiting to see what would happen next. I think the author has done an amazing job of taking a bookish girl and giving her the man from her books who just happens to be an alien. This is my first alien series but I love it and can’t seem to get enough of Katy’s world.  I honestly can’t say enough how much I love the characters they are so easy to connect with I see so much of myself in Katy aside from the fact my hubby isn’t an alien. It’s one of those series you can’t help falling in love with and finishing the book within one sitting. I’m looking forward to seeing how the next book will play out with the new twists. I’m even looking at it right now on my shelf. I highly recommend if you love paranormal romance that you give the Lux series a try. It’s my go to YA paranormal series plus we have sexy aliens how can it not be a win. 
5 out of 5 stars
