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.

I didn't, the first two where definitely better. There is too much smoochies and useless "love language" for a good novel, this is starting to look too much like those crappy love novels for girl teenagers...(less)
Initial Reaction: I just finished the book..... and I'm speechless..... that ending..... Daemon...... I can't....... I can't even...... asdfghjkl;
Okay, I'm going to attempt to 'review' this book and refrain from too much fangirling. First of all, I think it's obvious that I absolutely loved it! So much stuff happened and it was so action-packed! But there were also really beautiful, tender moments between Daemon & Katy. Which leads me to.... ...more
Warning: this contains foul language and also tiny spoilers!!!
For those of you who don't know what this book is about: this book is about rubbing and also groping.
There were literally 3 chapter about them (ahem) enjoying each-other! 3 CHAPTERS noting happened except them lying in bed! and then there were 2 more of them walking through Vegas and thinking about FEELINGS.
There might have been some descent action scenes somewhere around the end, but I was so fed up of this book by then, i ...more
I was so thrilled to read this one because we waited a lot for this one.And when I got it in my heads I couldn't leave it.It was such a cool book and the ending was mind blowing, that great.
Me while reading the book :
“As close as you’re riding me, man, I feel like I need to take you out to dinner or something. At least, I should get your name.” He punched in a floor number, smirking.
“People call me Archer.”
“Oh shit. ET just phoned home.”
“Me and Katy look...more
“There's only one thing I want."
"And that is?"
"I want to see Kat."
Nancy's smile didn't fade. "And what are you willing to do to accomplish that?"
"Anything," I said without hesitation, and I meant it. "I will do anything, but I want to see Kat first and I want to see her now.”
I waited so long to read this book and I have to admit that it was way better than I expected it to be.I can easily say that Jennifer is my favorite author.The worlds that she creates,the characters and the ...more
Origin is a turning point in Lux series. This is not a childlish game anymore. Everything is more dangerous and more serious than ever before. Everyone had to pick sides and say goodbye to the content life they once had known. Full of action, Origin is the best part in series so far!
I loved dual POV. In this book, Daemon is in his best confident-self. He is snarky. He is determined. He will do ANYTHING to get his Kitten back. I absolutely loved how badass Daemon was in this ...more
AHHHHHH, YIPPIIIIIIiiiiiiiii !!!!!!!!!!
i can't breath..
I am so in love with this series - this book in particular. I feel so many emotions for it right now. This story world just keeps getting better and better, and I keep loving Daemon and Katy more and more.
So amazingly awesome. Jen's writing is spectacular. So much yum.
Oh, and don't get me started on how cool it is to have a literary reference to my book in this novel!!!!! How freaking surreal is that??? EEEK!!!
I give this book off-the-charts stars. Can't wait to see what Jen has in ...more
" There are two more books after Opal and like I said on release day, those two books (yet untitled) will be in dual POVs-- Daemon and Katy. "
OFFICIALLY FROM JEN'S BLOG
DID I READ DUAL POV?
That means there are going to be scenes from Daemon's POV!
The Third book hasn't even come out yet ...more
“I'd take out an army,burn down an entire city,and throw the world into chaos if I had to in order to keep Kat out of that place.”
And he did it.If you hurt Kat,you hurt Daemon,not because of their bond but due ...more
First things first.
1. We have a cover and a synopsis (don't know how I feel about the cover, though)
2. "... which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?"
WHAT. THE. WHAT
I seriously hope that doesn't mean what I think I means, Mrs. Armentrout. I don't know if my heart can survive a cliffhanger just like Opal's.
END OF EDIT
You can't seriously expect me to live without even a synopsis after that cliffhanger.
Reaction when I saw this:
Just like that.
“There’s only one thing I want.”
“And that is?”
“I want to see Kat.”
“And what are you willing to do to accomplish that?”
“Anything,” I said without hesitation, and I meant it. “I will do anything, but I want to see Kat first, and I want to see her now.”
OKAY, OKAY, OKAY! Picking it up this series again after so much time was an INCREDIBLE DECISION that I am so happy that I made.
(me the entire time reading this book).
This book was everything I was hoping for and more. The action, the writing, ...more
After the crazy cliffhanger in Opal, we’ve all been (not so) patiently waiting to find out what happens with Daemon and Katy... one of my favorite fictional couples! I’ve been anxious to see how this one would turn out... if it would stack up to the rest of the series. It did! Amazing!
Daemon Black is on a mission to save the woman he loves and nothing and no one can stop him. He will do ANYTHING he has to do to be with Kat.
Okay. Let me breathe for a minute.
This was SO.DAMN.GOOD!!
And I my nerves almost killed me, and I don’t know how it will possibly go from here, and I’m really afraid of what will happen with the next book because of its title and (view spoiler)[after that end and that strange “Luxen calling” I think Daemon and Katy will be in opposite sides of the war (hide spoiler)] and yeah… I’m rambling. Sorry. (I’m really not that sorry!)
Okay, this ...more
So I basically had an aneurysm while waiting for this book to come out. With the cliffhanger in the last book I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. ( And also on Blake so I can strangle him.) This book just had so many reveals I think I still haven't been able to take all of the in.
** thinks about it*** nope still haven't
I think at this point it should be obvious I absolutely loved this book. It was really fast paced and there were some ...more
Okay, we got everything we usually want by the third book:
-Katy+Daemon did..."something" we were dying for
-Dawson and Beth back together
So many deaths and I'm hurting for all of them -even the ones I never thought I'd feel-.Beth's pregnancy is a wreck train. I so can't forgive Matthew for doing that shit no matter what. Damn book! Jennifer, you can't do this to us!
This is me at the end of Origin...
That was such a stupid way to end the book.
For some of the readers it was a 'cliffhanger', but in my opinion it was (like i said) stupid and therefore i didn't like it.
So i was like...
And I’m not going to let you do this by yourself You’re my – everything, Kat
Origin starts off with a very pissed, sad, and heartbroken Daemon. Right were we left off in Opal (view spoiler)[where Kat gets captured by the ...more
Her stare burned me from the inside. I wanted to worship her. I needed to. Every inch.
I can finally and officially say that Katy and Daemon are one of my favorite couples! Even when Daemon was a douche and jerk to her in the beginning, he was actually like that for a reason and there were always reasons behind it. Even when he felt something for her and liked her in some way just didn't want to admit it or express it, it was sticking with him the whole time, he just had trouble showing it. ...more
Before I start my review I just want to say that this is my favorite book from the series. After the incredible and heartbreaking cliffhanger we got in Opal, I was dying to get my hands on this one, because I was sure a lot of things will change in this story. And guess what? I was right..
So, we continue our adventure from exactly the point where Opal shattered out hearts. Katy was abducted my the Daedalus and nobody could do anything to save her. She was on her own now. At least their plan ...more
EPIC! Truly impressive.
From where can I start telling you about this book?
First of all if you compare the first book of the series Obsidian with Origin, you will notice that the story has evolved exponentially:
1.The high school children are not children any more. They are young adults now. They hold their future in their hands, they take painful decisions, they proceed in life-changing actions.
2. The action will move from the little town and the school to ...more
This whole series was just...*screams*
See, the author starts off this whole series with a hot, drop-dead sexy dude, so obviously I was into it. ;)
To all you readers, don’t worry, Daemon didn’t lose his hotness.
BUT THE PLOT WAS A COMPLETE UTTER FAIL.
JLA’s amazing, mind me, but in this series, she just kept on adding more and more problems to the story, but never actually solved any of them.
IT’S THE FOURTH FREAKING BOOK.
There needs to be a few solutions happening about ...more
The most memorable moments :
1. The morning when I saw Origin online
2. When I read what was happening to Kat
3. When Deamon surrendered
4.When Blake return
(view spoiler)[ and she did ! (hide spoiler)]
5. What Daedalus were doing
6.What Kat and Deamon did in Vegas
7. And Beth with Dawson
8. Oh and finally Matthew
And there was so many great moments just that I would add and add gif after ...more
and now Origin!
I'm really surprised that it took me so long to notice this...
EDIT (AFTER READING OPAL):
*shakes fist angrily*
DARN YOU CLIFFHANGERS!!!!
I don't like this cover...
1. it looks so different from the other covers.
2. It's one of those covers that make me embarrassed to buy the book...
'ORIGIN' is the fourth book in Jennifer L. Armentrout's 'Lux' series. It picks up where the previous book left off.
Still in keeping with my January challenge I'm finishing off this series!! To date I'm loving them and am so glad I took that plunge with reading PNR because this genre until now has been one I've not willingly jumped on.
Each book ends in cliffys so I can imagine the screams from many disgruntled readers because they are brutal and this one was no different, things were going ...more
