Goodreads Synopsis:

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?

My Review:

So a lot has happened since the previous book.
            1. Opal ended with a jaw dropping cliffhanger.
            2. I was just speechless...I can't even...ahlksjflkfjg!
            3. Lets try to write a somewhat coherent review...shall we!
            Origin immediately picks up where Opal left off. Katy has been captured after their failed attempt at infiltrating Daedalus. She has been placed in a locked room with cameras  that monitor her 24/7. Even in captivity, with no obvious way to escape, Katy is resilient and determined to fight her way out. Her strength and her attitude of not giving up makes her very admirable in my eyes. Though her efforts have failed so far and have caused her more trouble than success, she isn't giving up.

            After spending a few days locked up, she is moved to a secluded warehouse in Roswell off the map. There, she is put through numerous tests, experiments, and conditions to determine whether her mutation was successful. She finds out Roswell is a secret government facility where scientists are trying to manufacture a drug called LH-11 to cure diseases. Basically, Daedalus wants to know if Katy is unstable and try to manipulation the same genetic change in their mutant experiments.      

            Katy is put through horrendous and unbelievable situations. She has no choice, but to follow their orders or they will hurt her mother and friends. Katy is sick to her stomach and doesn't want to do anything they tell her to do. I really admired her courage and determination for her family and friends. When we first met her she was a strong and determined girl. However, now she is a fighter and survivor. Even with everything Katy is going through, she still worries about her book blog. I found that to be so cute!

            While Katy is going through this, Daemon is going crazy out of him mind thinking of a plan to save her. He will do anything for her, even if it means coming into Daedalus and turning himself in. I found his character change to be very refreshing. Yes, he is still his cocky self, but he has matured so much. I think I like this Daemon better than the one we first met.

            Overall, this book is the most action filled. There were fights, arguments, drama, and terrible things that happened, but everyone seemed to pull through. Friendships were tested, humanity was on the line, lives were risked and lost, but most of all love for family and friends topped everything. I loved how everyone was willing to do whatever necessary for their family and friends. I related to this the most because I would do anything for my family and friends. Just an awesome book! I can't wait to read Opposition which comes out sometime this year!!!
