ASDFGHJKLEGJNADFVSNEDVNHEIZKMVLKSMVOSIHGKHGJKH!!!! I have no words to describe this book! NO WORDS! Because this is the fourth book in this series I will not give a detailed synopsis, but basically it’s about Daemon and Katy trying to find each other, and then escape the Daedalus, and OMIGOD, its like riding a really really REALLY fast roller-coaster. This book is not only told from Katy’s point of view, but from Daemons as well which was a FABULOUS surprise. So let’s get started!
So the book starts out with Katy in the Daedalus compound. And we meet Sergeant Dasher, and Archer. Let me just get one thing straight: ARCHER IS MY LIFE!!!!!! I knew from the first moment he would be important! I just knew it! But when it turned out that he was an origin I was peeing my pants. That was unexpected. Also I was almost entirely certain that Archer, Daemon, and Katy, were gonna be a love triangle. Is it possible to be two teams at once? I was. Until Dee came into the picture and I thought: “Why not let Archer be happy? Because the other two are MARRIED NOW!!!!!’ But more on that later. Anyway we have a traumatized Katy in the Daedalus. And Sergeant Dasher is telling her about all the safety precautions they have taken to ensure that she wont get out. And then we switch to Daemons POV. We’ll he’s freaking. That’s an understatement. Daemon is on the verge of insanity. He ran away from Dawson and Beth and Dee and is now turning himself in. But first he goes to Luc and asks him for a favor, and Luc tells him he wants LH-11, which at this point we only know that it’s used to treat cancer patients. And when we get back to Katy, Daedalus is trying to convince her that Luxen are evil. She’s not buying it. And then they try to do some tests on her and she refuses. Until they bring Blake in (yeah Blake! i know!) and then she kills him because he calls her Kitten! I KNOW! I wanted to kill him right then and there. Kitten is DAEMONS nick name for her! HOW DARE HE? i was so enraged if anyone had approached me then I probably would have punched them. But then Daemon shows up and ALL IS WELL! YAY! And they have a happy reunion and everything. Until Nancy and Dasher show them the origins! Okay let’s get one thing straight origins are awesome. Especially Micah. He’s the best. Well, so are Luc, Archer, and Paris. Okay youknow what? I love all origins. And then Nancy was all “You guys need to hook up and reproduce to make origins!” and as much as I hate Nancy and Daedalus, I love the idea of little baby Daemons running around in diapers. And when Archer tells Katy that LH-11 is actually the same thing as the other Prometheus thing and she asked him why he would tell her this and he said “We have a mutual friend” I knew in that second it was Luc. I just knew it!
Then they escaped and I was freaking out about what was going to happen. I mean… where would they go. Archer, and Daemon, and Katy, and Luc, and Paris. That’s 5 wanted aliens! And when they split up and Daemon and Katy go to the motel, I was really exited and freaking out at the same time. Cocky Daemon just HAD to buy the box of condoms, and then Archer just had to see them and that kind of ruined my whole Archer-Daemon-Katy theory. Well it didn’t ruin it, but it made it harder to become reality. And I was really bummed about that until Archer and Dee met. And then a new fantasy sparked inside of me! And then we saw Ash and Andrew, and Matthew, and Dee, and Dawson and Beth again. And then… you know what happens then? Daemon decides, he wants to MARRY Katy. So they go and they get married in Vegas, but the best part is that they don’t tell anybody. And everything is sunshine and rainbows until Luc suddenly throws a hissy fit on the owner of the house they were staying in. I knew right away what was going on. The only thing I didn’t know was that Matthew had gave up their location and betrayed them. I thought it was just the house owner who turned them in. Then everyone is running away and driving away until they get stuck in a traffic jam, which is the most normal thing that has happened in this entire book. And then Daedalus comes in and starts shooting people, and everyone is freaking out, even the humans, and then Paris dies! I didn’t even know him that well, but he was funny and sarcastic, and most of all he was Luc’s friend, and I like Luc. Then Andrew dies, and two of the Thompson’s are dead, and then after a while Ash dies as well and now they’re all gone. I didn’t like them that much anyway, but I was still sad when they died. But the last thing that happened in the book absolutely shook me. The other Luxen showed up and surrounded them. And it wasn’t just a dozen other Luxen. It was a whole army. Hundreds of thousands. And Daemon and Dee went out and just disappeared in their light and then…. THE END! You can’t end the book like that!! What happened with Archer and Dee? and what about Luc? and Micah? and the other origins? and Daemon? and their marriage? UGH SO MANY QUESTIONS?? And now i have to wait for such a long time until those questions are answered. I’m assuming it’s going to be released at the end of 2014…
I’m sorry I didn’t upload the first three book reviews first, but I most recently read this one, so I had to write a book review right away or I would forget everything. Just to say, this book most definitely has a spot on the ultimate bookshelf. In fact, it has at least 50 spots. But I hope you enjoyed my book review on Origin, by Jennifer L. Armentrout, ’till next time,
