Synopsis from 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?
What I Thought
This one really packs a punch. If you haven’t read the previous books, ignore the rest of my review. It’s impossible not to spoil some parts of it at this point.
This book has dual points of view for both Katy and Daemon since they start out separated (not as a couple, she’s just captured). They’re easily distinguishable by their names above each section which was great. I honestly think that little addition of having him narrate was what made this book the best so far. If you really liked the little chapters from the first book that had Daemon’s thoughts on what happened, then you’ll love seeing things through his eyes this time. The two of them are still so cute and steamy in this book, especially after what they have to both go through.
Most of the beginning of the book deals with Katy being captured and being subjected to tests. Kind of like Dawson mentioned before and what messed him and Beth up. Now we get to see just how evil Daedalus is. Some of the things that go on and what they see is pretty crazy, like the Origins that this book is named after. It even gets more awesome as the book goes on, and the romance was adorable. I also really liked Archer!
The ending for this was so intense and this whole book was filled with awesome. There was romance, death, betrayal and lots of action. The ending has another cliffhanger and I really wish the next book was out now. Love this series!
