"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.

Those of us who are holding our collective breath for things to heat up further between Alisa and a certain handsome, and oh-so-strong cybernetically-enhanced man, are not disappointed here. Who among us could resist such a man – who would also encourage his lady to SHOP (even if it is for combat armor)?
This is definitely my favorite installment so far, though I believe I may have said that last time. Hats off to Ms. Buroker for spinning a tale that keeps us wanting more!
The Staff was taken by a rogue group of Starseers, the Chasadski on Cleon’s Moon, and in the process, Alisa met her biological Dad, Stanislav Schwegler.
Buroker writes exceptionally well with her characters. It’s hard to remember at times just how far these characters have progressed, how much we have learnt about them, the depth they have gained, and the attachments we have grown for them. From the growing relationship between Alisa and Leonidas, Mica and her explosives and engineering exploits, the reclusive Dr, Alejandro, with his Imperial past, now a ‘Monk’, seeking the staff, and yet a medical genius. And one of the best characters of the story, Yumi, with her surprising amount of knowledge on wide variety of things, and then there is her illicit and not so illicit drug manufacturing in her room. Add to this her wanting to be a Starseer, and her relations that are Starseers, and all of this makes Yumi a wonderfully diverse character that just adds so much depth to the story.
And this is the true power of Buroker’s story, her characters, they are so powerful, each so individual, that they add so much to the story, give it so much depth, so much emotion, and ultimately, draw you in, giving you a real attachment to each of them and what is going to befall them next, even Alejandro.
In this particular episode, the crew have returned to Arkadia, following the trail of the rogue Starseers, the Staff of Lore, and Jelena. What they arrive into is more Alliance entanglements and more trouble.
In the middle of all of this, Alisa has the brilliant idea from a comment Leonidas makes, to kidnap a former Imperial Dr to help with his Cyborg issues. And, without giving too much away, to really make things interesting, the rogue Starseers unleash the power of the staff on Arcardia, causing chaos and destruction on a city on the surface.
Alisa, still with Aberlardus, and now with her father Stanislav, as well as the rest of the crew, must meet this new threat to not only try and find what has happened to Alisa’s daughter, to retrieve the staff, but also to save Arkadia before the planet is ripped in two.
This is a really exciting story, with lots of action, lots of interesting story lines, mixed alliances and exceptional characters, the unfolding storylines around the Starseer factions is outstanding and as usual, the clever humour.
Arkadian Skies is one of the best so far in the series and a must read.
