Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Lux book 4)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't read the first three books in the series, Obsidian, Onyx and Opal, Stop! I don't want to ruin one of my favorite series for you.
Katy Swartz was captured by the Department of Defense in the mission to rescue Bethany Williams from Mount Weather. She wakes up to find herself in government custody in Nevada. Daedalus tells her that they are using Luxen and hybrids like herself in an attempt to find a cure for cancer. They are also interested in how the mutation works and whether or not Katy will be stable hybrid or destruct like Carissa. But most of all, Daedalus is determined to stop the Luxen race from taking over Earth. Not knowing who or what to believe, Katy slowly realizes that Daedalus is telling her the truth about some things. The longer Katy is held captive by the DOD and Daedalus, the more she begins to question what she believes and just who can she trust.
Daemon Black is ready to burn the world down to save Katy. He is determined to do anything just to get her back, even if it means turning his back on his family. She is the most important person in his life and nothing will stop him. He gets himself captured by the DOD at Mount Weather to get closer to Katy. Daemon doesn't care that he has played right into the government's hands and is now a prisoner himself. Being with and protecting Katy is all that matters.
Now that they are both prisoners of Daedalus, Daemon and Katy are determined to escape and uncover just what is occurring at the underground compound.
What happens when Daemon and Katy are reunited? Can they find a way to escape the clutches of Daedalus? What does Daedalus want with Daemon and Katy? And just who are the bad guys; those that Katy has been led to believe or are there really two sides to every story?
Told in dual POVs by Katy and Daemon, readers will be immediately swept back into the story and will be clutching the edge of their seat awaiting the final volume in the series, Opposition due out in 2014.
