Origin (Lux #4) – Jennifer Armentrout


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?


I know I have said this before but I LOVE THIS SERIES!  I was going to say that I liked this one better than the previous books but that would be a lie…I can’t pick a favorite, they are all fantastic!

I did take me a little bit to get back into the swing of the story because some of it can be a little reptitive but it wasn’t too bad.   The story pretty much picks up where the 3rd book left off.  I love how you get “Katy” and “Daemon’s” POVs alterenating between each chapter.  I like feeling like I know both sides of the story.

This passion in this book is fantastic and spicy and the snarky and humorous back and forth between the two characters is very entertaining.

It is full of passion, betrayal, lust, love, humor and mystery.  You will find friends who aren’t really friends, enemies who aren’t really enemies and strangers who you have no idea whether they should trust or not.

I would recommend this for older teens and young adults and adults.  There is some language and some sex scenes (not overly graphic though).

Onyx (Lux #2) – Jennifer L. Armentrout


Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies


I will say it again…I am in love with this series.  The characters are so easy to fall in love with.  I love the sarcasm and wit in the dialogue.  There were several times that I actually laughed out loud while reading.  That is rare for me.  I am the type to laugh internally and not call attention to myself by laughing aloud.

The relationships in the 2nd book are much more developed and the passion and denial between “Kat” and “Daemon” still give the butterflies in the tummy effect.

The pace of the book is still fast making it easy to read and hard to put down.

This is going to be another series that I will have to purchase for myself even though I have already read it.  My favorite quote by Oscar Wilde is “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”

I think this series is “multiple read” worthy 🙂

I would recommend this for older teens and young adults…there is some language and there is implied sex but nothing overt or detailed.
