Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lux #4
     "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?"

The fourth book in the Lux series. Holy cliffhanger-batman. I have to wait until August to find out what will happen. That is way too long of a wait. I need that book right now.

The dual P.O.V was really awesome. I love reading things from Daemons point of view. He is kind of a bad-ass, and every girl wants a guy like Daemon. The way he cares for people and his determination for protecting them is something rare in male characters. Often we see a guy in a story that's meant to be like this, and it goes one of two ways. Either, the guy is super macho and bossy, or he cares too much and can't really handle pressure or do the things necessary to protect those he loves. I haven't really mentioned this before, but I like how the male characters actually seem like real dudes.

The place that they take Katy and the things they do to her and make her do would break most people. Even though at times, it seems slightly unrealistic, it's great to see such a determined and powerful female character. Archer, the new character added to the story, is one of my new favorites. He is pretty complex, and I am interested in where he will fit into things in the next book. Along with the rest of the Origin. (read the book to find out what I mean by that.)

There were so many deaths in this book. It's like she was using George RR Martin as a muse or something. Granted I didn't really like or care too much about the characters that died in this book, but they were there since the beginning and I would have liked to see more character development with them before they got knocked off. With how this book ended, I seriously can't wait to read the fifth book, and I'm gonna go all sappy and junk, but I hope that they all have a happy ending. After all the crap they went through, they deserve a happy ending.
