"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.

The truth is hard to find as everything she loves and knows isn't what it seems.
A new life, family and friends are discovered in San Francisco - as well as her heart.
For all of us that hate mayo, love a good plot and cheer for the good guys, Hart has truly created a story you can relate to. Even if it has French angel aliens...
But Jenny isn’t mean to have an ordinary life. She senses she doesn’t really belong here and if her nightmares are any indication, then the destiny awaiting for her isn’t as peaceful as she hopes it is. Her life is about to be turned by an ancient evil that seeks to destroy her. She’ll need allies if she wants to defeat her enemies, and one of those allies is Nick Grace, a researcher who wants to help her find answers. But can she trust him?
The Aeon Star reminded me of why I enjoy urban fantasy so much. The book is lengthy, at 500 pages, and it might’ve also worked as 2 books, but despite the length, it never really felt that long. I was so enthralled in the world the author described that I barely noticed how long the book was. It started off with action and a fast pace, and never slowed down. The romance was a good addition too, and it didn’t overwhelm the story but just added to it.
An intriguing, engaging read recommended to fans of urban fantasy and new adult books. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I typically only enter giveaways for books that sound like something I would like to read. But how lucky to not only win the giveaway but to also fall in love with the book. At first I thought it was going to be hard to keep track of so many characters but the author introduced them at a pace and made them memorable enough that it was fairly easy to keep track of everyone. Even the cats were memorable, can Peaches and Roger get their own book? Ha ha. I also loved the unpredictability, I hate when you are halfway through a book and you have already predicted the ending but still feel the need to continue reading. I was unable to predict exactly where the author was going with the story line which was great. I think this single book could have easily been divided into two or even three books but I am glad I won't be waiting for the next installment to find out what happens. It was a great read and not the same old thing that it seems like every author is trying to write about these days. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author.
