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?
Last summer I started this book and only made it to 11% before I gave up. I tried again in the fall and stopped at the exact same spot. After a year break I decided to give it another go around since the last book came out Tuesday. NO QUITTING THIS TIME BECAUSE I FOUND IT EXCITING.
Katy is being held in Area 51 and Daemon is determined to rescue her. “Did you think you could stop me? I’ll burn the world down to save her.” -Daemon
I love that we got to see a mushy side to Daemon even if it was only for a short time. Daemon & Katy are one of my favorite paranormal teenage couples.
Shock and awe fill the pages of Origin. A jolt of adrenaline rushes through your veins as the story develops and things begin to unfold. Ms. Armentrout does a wonderful job leaving you with an intriguing cliff hanger that has the reader jonesing for the next book. READ this series.
