Waiting on Wednesday: Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Origin (Lux, #4)

Look at him!

Hi everyone! Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release date: August 27, 2012


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? Goodreads

My thoughts: I still remember when I finished Opal. I had this moment. I read the last line, laughed hysterically hoping it was some form of a joke. Katy didn’t… Daemon?… J. Lynn seriously did not just write that. I looked at the book begging for it to change… then threw it clear across my room sobbing and curled up in the corner of my bed just staring at it. I think I blacked out at one. It was a very difficult time. I have to say that this is probably number one on my Most Anticipated Books of the year. Allegiant takes number two. Authors really had a thing for cliff-hangers this year. Also, if you haven’t started the Lux series, I would start it. It’s amazing.

What book(s) are you most excited for this year? Or maybe a book that’s out that you want to read? Let me know! Also, I’m hoping to have a review up later today.
