GREAT READ

Firstly, a round of applause for Armentrout and her stunning conclusion. All ends were neatly packaged, topped with a shiny yellow ribbon, and handed to us, adoring fans, with a deep bow and a kiss. Closing the last page I breathed a heavy sigh of relief knowing that I finished the series with no questions left unanswered.  So a big thank you and congrats to her!

Secondly, “YES!” When I say that every book is better than the one before I mean it in an all-encompassing way. From the characters, to the plot, to the writing—“whew”, SO good.  

Opposition, will make you breathless (for more reasons than one), ecstatic, heart-broken, and exhilarated. There is so much jammed between the pages you will have a hard time keeping up. Alliances are formed that you would never fathom, friendships will waver, and lives will end.

Previous supporting characters will shine. You will come to find that Archer has one SERIOUS sense of humor and he will consistently have you laughing to the end.  Luc’s mystery is unveiled and you will be left with this overwhelming desire to coddle him. And Katy and Daemon—well, between every few pages you will be enraptured by their love and strength for one another.

I can’t say it enough, Opposition is a great conclusion to the Lux Series. Fans you will not be disappointed.

Review | Lux Series #4, Origin, by Jennifer L Armentrout

source: Goodreads

Origin (Lux Series #4)
Jennifer L Armentrout
Entangled Teen

Synopsis via Goodreads

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?

GOOD READ

Jennifer L. Armentrout’s fourth installment in the Lux series, Origin, is so my favorite thus far.  The third book, Opal, left us hanging at the edge of a cliff with a white-knuckled grip, but Origin made us jump head-first in the pit.

The first half of Origin was rather slow-paced for me. Katy is trapped. Daemon is furious and out of his mind. Katy struggles with the truth. Daemon is still furious and out of his mind. Katy is tested. Daemon acts on impulse. Katy kills. Daemon is captured. They are both reunited in Daedalus headquarters. (Wayyyy sooner than I expected, by the way.)

Then, in Armentrout’s words, “poo hits the proverbial fan.”  Origins, hybrid-Luxen offspring, appear out of nowhere. Allies are made and an escape ensues. As soon as Katy & Daemon leave Area 51, I am pretty sure I yelled, “what?!…Oh my God…No WAY!”, every few pages. Holy plot twists, Batman!  

Hold on to your glasses, because this is one heck of a ride and at the end you will wonder if somewhere along the way you switched cars.

This is definitely a book you won’t predict and will have you scrambling for the 5th book in the series, Opposition.
