"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

While there was plenty of action, the language flowed easily yet was intelligent; it didn’t need grisly detail or expletives to make you sit up a little straighter and hold your breath, wondering what was to come next. Toward the end, I actually became worried I might run out of pages before the story ended – I did not. But I was sorry to have come to the end of such an interesting speculative fiction premise.
Thank you, Alison Morton, for the enjoyable hours I spent reading Aurelia.
Inge H. Borg, Author of the “Legends of the Winged Scarab” Series.
Aurelia shows us how different the 20th century might be if women had been full participants in running countries over the centuries. She is a Major in the praetorian Guard of Roma Nova--and heir to the head of the first of the Twelve Families. She has always avoided Caius Tellus, a member of one of the other Twelve Families because he is mean to all of the other children, including her, doing mean, nasty tricks. But he wants to marry her!! And her mother is encouraging him!
Aurelia's mother dies as a result of an extremely suspicious car wreck and Aurelia become head of the family before she is fully prepared.
Something needs to change and she is sent to Berlin as part of a silver trade party. What happens there and after, is a tight suspenseful novel, well worth reading!
Heading back to read the first one!
I loved the pace of this book, it’s so fast paced and easy flowing that you can’t help but sucked in.
The character Aurelia was well-developed. She has a military background and is very motivated and driven by her need to show just how much a woman can do without the need of a man. She’s strong and while a lot of people respect a woman in a powerful position some still believe a woman beneath them..and she’s loves to wind these people up..some hold grudges.
When we first meet Aurelia we learn of her military background but after some family misfortune she must leave the profession behind..family come first.
She’s soon recruited to be a spy of sorts, with her background and position in power she’s the perfect agent.
Silver is being smuggled and Aurelia soon stumbles upon the person responsible.. but she’s can’t prove it yet.
What happens after that is that we are treated to some very interesting twists. We have great characters such as a potential love interest who helps Aurelia..but he’s got his own secrets. There’s the jealous suitor who Aurelia despises and the biggest treat for me was the military contacts she makes throughout the book in her previous military role and her new role. Each very clearly defined, straight-laced but each intriguing in their own right.
As I’ve said the book is fast paced but the plot was great, I didn’t think anything was missing and it worked well. I particularly liked the historical edge to the tale, bringing the idea of Praetorian’s and such to a modern-day tale, It really gave it the unique feel.
I’m certainly going to pick up the previous 3 books and the series and look forward to more from the author. Her writing style is energetic and purposeful, the characters are always on the move and I loved how things played out.
This is a mystery with a historical edge, twists come out of nowhere.
I really fell for Aurelia..she has so much to deal with but she’s strong, she will persevere.
Most of all I loved how the author managed to make this mystery fun and serious at the same time, at times it’s light hearted at others very poignant. Loved it.
My thanks go to the author for the chance to read and review their work in exchange for an honest review.
