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?

“Me and Katy look adorkable in extraterrestrial
highway shirts. You would just look stupid. You can thank me later.”

Finally!!!! I finally really, really enjoyed a LUX book!!

Ahh, this was such a breathe of fresh air. Origin was fantastic, and most definitely my fav in the series so far.

“Oh shit. ET just phoned home.”

I found myself liking the characters a lot more in this one! I mean, I always liked them, but the relationship between Katy and Daemon never really sucked me in. I was so glad that I enjoyed them a lot more throughout this book, and became even more attached to the characters.

Armentrout really has a way of writing hilarious dialogue, even when, you know, theres an alien apocalypse or something. She still manages to knock it out of the park.


Daemon arched a brow. “Another fanboy. I have them everywhere.”
I muttered, “Only you would see that as a good thing.”

The story took on quite a different approach, and had a different feel to it than the last 3 books, which I think is what made me like it a lot more than the others. This was less cutesy-romanic stuff, and more survival, action stuff, which I really liked.

This book was so intense at certain points, and the whole second half was really, really impressive. The first half was still good, but just not as crazy as the next.

Really excited to read the fifth and final book, Opposition!

That’s all,

Kate :)
