Origin, Book 1
Synopsis: When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…
Review: I really like Jennifer L Armentrout and if I have not read the novels of the Lux series, I must say that I was curious to immerse myself in this spin off. I can not say what it is compared to the original series, but I do not think I had too much trouble to understand things without being lost and I had a great time.
Evie Dasher is a wise girl, and she did not think that by agreeing to accompany her best friend Heidi to a club where Luxen and humans freely mix that her life would be forever upset down. She meets Luc here. Luke who attracts her as much as he irritates her and who seems to be much more than what he presents. Yet he is going to reveal things to her that she did not think possible. And when girls disappear, it is possible that he is one of the only ones who can discover who the culprit is.
I really liked this novel. The author has an addictive style that is always so nice to discover and this novel is no exception. There are things we understand well before our heroine who is easily in denial, but it was very interesting to discover with her what Luc was hiding and especially to understand what he was exactly.
I am now curious to discover the first series and continue to see what the author will propose!
