Get your alien on! A review of Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I think this is my favorite book in the Lux series so far. In this book, human Katy has been abducted by a sinister organization and alien Deamon has to save her.

Origin ups the ante in so many unspeakable ways.

This is not the cute, fun story that Obsidian was. There is some serious sh*t going on here.

There is a HUGE cliffhanger in this book, but unlike the cliffhanger I mentioned  in Talon by Julie Kagwa, this one, being in the fourth book in the series, is fine with me. There is no way I would not read the next book anyway, and despite the huge OMG at the end, this book did feel finished.

I’m definitely looking forward to where this is going.

That ending – WOW– totally unexpected.

A review of Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I am a huge Jennifer L. Armentrout fan. Her writing is smooth, easy to read, and she is uber-skilled at making a reader turn pages.

17455815But Stone Cold Touch, book two in the Dark Elements series, unfortunately fell flat for me. I think the reason is the love triangle.

The three characters involved are awesome on their own. I really like both of the male leads… but because of this, I found myself angry with the female lead because she was constantly warbling between them.

Also, the triangle became the focus of the book. For me, romance needs to be a sideline plot. The world of Dark Elements is fantastic, with rich characters and a life of its own, but this incredible world is shoved aside and takes a backseat to the romance. It disappointed me a little, and despite ending mid chapter — with doom staring all the characters in the face, I did not immediately reach for the next book.

Will I read eventually read the third book? Well, yes. I loved the first book so much I got the entire series. I just think maybe I need a break for a bit.

JLA’s writing is still phenomenal. Such an easy read.
