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?
Startlingly dramatic, lethally dangerous and unapologetically romantic, Origin offers a story that makes us question about the real meaning of loyalty. I like that we get to receive some answers for things that were hinted in earlier installments about the Luxen, Arum and Daedalus. While I was expecting to see more new characters, I was caught off-guard by the role Luc played in this installment. I think his words “the beginning of everything and the end of the beginning” really sum up the theme of “origin” nicely. Daemon and Katy are such a beautiful pair and I like that even when Katy is not book-blogging, we get to see her nerdy side talking about paranormal books. Daemon is as arrogant as ever but I like that in this installment we get to see things and people that make him so envy that he can’t do anything but to admire the gifts of others for once. It’s sad to see betrayals and deaths in the book but all the revelations help me understand why the Daedalus are after the Blacks from the very beginning. I’d have to say – this is my favorite book by far in the series! I’ll be eagerly “waiting on” the next installment.
