Publisher's Summary

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, Daemon'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.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way Katy 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?

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?

    "The Series Gets Richer and Ricer in intrigue"

    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.

    "Very enjoyable!"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought the 1st few chapters moved along like alien version of twighlight and I almost quite, but so glad I kept on. The action became quite intense and I lost sleep in order to finish this book. I bought the 2nd in the series before I'd even finished this one! The ending was abrupt and i just had to go right into the next book. (I don't do that often)

    "On the edge of my seat..."

    You never know when the end of one book is coming or the new one is about to start. All action & romance - all the time. I'm getting through these books way too fast. Impressed with female narrator.

    "Good enough"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This one was just too sappy. I enjoy the love story, but it was the hot/cold in book one that drew me in. This one almost changed their personalities


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer L. Armentrout? Why or why not?

    yes - I'll read the last book in this series.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The female voice was really annoying. In retrospect I wonder if I would have rated this book higher if I read it instead of listened to it. The male voice was fine.


    Was Origin worth the listening time?

    yes

    "I ♥ Aliens"

    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!

    5 stars!

    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Five Stars Worth of Entertainment!"

    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.

    "Series best!"

    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!
