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!

  1. I liked this book but I can honestly say it is not my favorite in the series. I still prefer the first book over all so far. I was excited to read this one when it came out last summer, though. Seems like the wait for the final book is taking forever! Great review!

    • The first one was for sure the best, but I like that the rest of the series hasn’t fallen short of keeping me engaged 🙂
      I haven’t been waiting for the next one as long, but it does seem so far away!

  2. I started reading this but I’ve put it down and haven’t picked it up again. I think I’m still hung up on awesome Obsidian. I have a feeling that dual narration will make me love this book though. Will have to see what happens to Daemon and Katy though so I’ll read this one soon 😀

    • I hope you do give this series a chance, I’ve heard as well that a lot of people like it. I haven’t read any of her adult stuff yet, but I hope I like that too.

I love comments! Feel free to leave one, and if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, I just have to approve it.
