Publisher's Summary

When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert, he has no idea he's been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.
He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.
But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn't just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

what a trip

There were so many points at which this book could have gone horribly, crashingly wrong. To my amazement, it never did, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Literature for the ages, this is not. But it's ontologically whacked, it's crazy fun, it's bite-your-nails exciting! And Luke Daniels does a fine job with the narration. Definitely recommended to take the edge off the the pain of the current political primaries.

Awesome!

Where does Origin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its up there. The story was creepy and twisted all the way through. Just how I like them.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Origin?

Picturing "Bub" speaking for the first time would give me the chills.


What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Did a really good job with different characters. I was never confused about who was speaking.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Hang on to your shorts... and bring an extra pair!


Any additional comments?

This story was fast paced and kept me listening all throughout. Looking into the different characters' past was quick and insightful without taking you away from the story. Author and narrator had me freaked on what was coming next. Putting myself in the same situation as the main character I could see the same reactions. I would highly recommend. I didn't know what to expect and was delivered a gem.
