I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
In order to appreciate this novel you have to start at the beginning. In Origin, the DoD takes the stage front and center. I will not say more about this; but what is outstanding is the way Armentrout continues to widen the the plot. In the first novel, you get lulled into thinking this is a trite YA romance about aliens, and by this book she has widened the scope and brought many serious issues to bear. She masterfully brings up relevant issues that affect us in society today. If you look beyond her story for her message, I think you'll be impressed with the questions she raises and her opinions she has offered so far.
In this book, Eyre reads from Kat's POV and Shapiro from for Daemons's. This narration is especially potent in the audio book, I am not sure it would be as good if you were reading it. The author's ability to use dialog to move the story forward is excellent as is her character development. I highly recommend the book and I can't wait for the final outcome. If the last four books are any indication, it should be a hit. I hope so, because book three of Divergent and Hunger Games were such a disappointment. That said, on to book 5.
Did all you Lux Series fans know there is a book 5 and its due out 8/5/14!!! Usually by now Audible would have it showing so we could pre-order it! Maybe if enough of us chat with audible they can send request form in (you can request a book as many thes as you want) so maybe we will have a chance to see how this series ends!
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series but Origins is by far the best one yet.
After that gut-wrenching cliffhanger in Opal, I was a little hesitant to dive into this one. It’s a game changer for sure and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. Without giving away too many details, this one felt like two stories in one. The first being Katy’s experience as a prisoner by Daedalus and the second the future of the Luxen race and the big reveal (the game changer). The dual POV was a nice addition to this series as well. I really enjoyed getting into Daemon’s head in this one. There’s another cliffhanger with Origins but thankfully it won’t rip your heart out like Opal did. I can’t wait to listen to the final installment of this fantastic series!
Fast paced, witty, exciting, hAwt and steamy (yet very tastefull) romance and that is just to start. The characters have depth and their relationships develop in a manner that leaves you sitting on the edge to see what happens next. I have listened to all five of these books on audiable and I have bought the kindle versions so I can enjoy it again. I would love to see this series go on and on and I would also be first in line for the movie.
Both of the narrorators made the characters come alive and enriched the story for me. It was entertaining to switch between their points of view.
By far this is the best in the Lux series. There is plenty of action, new characters, and things heat up even more between Katy and Deamon. The best part though was the addition of the male voice. The narrator is excellent. I wish the whole series could have included him!
Keeping a positive mind through books.
Absolutely. It was fantastic having a Male Narrator speak for Daemon and a Female Narrator speak for Katie. There was excitement, passion and action drama scenes that came to life. I simply had to listen.
Daemon is loyal and honest about who he is and what he wants. He may have struggles but faces these and any fears head on.
Rob Shapiro speaks for the character better than I could ever have imagined it and I truly felt every emotion conveyed. J Eyre was a great compliment to that.
The proposal was AWESOME! It was fantastic to hear Daemon spell it out like that. A mixture of joy laughter pride with tears is all that awaits.
Love the split narration. The story... everything. Obsessed. In the beginning of the series it felt a little like another twilight... but now I can't think of anything these two series has in common. Simply amazing amazing, could listen to it in one setting.
Yes its better I think. To me anyway
When they said that they love each other and got married
Yes, and you can if you not doing anything... cause you can get into it
Love it and can't wait for the next one!!!
