"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.

One: This is a true epic fantasy. You open the novel to find a fully illustrated map and a quote from one of the book's factions: "Order of the Wise." The world inside the pages is huge and highly researched, making this a true epic fantasy.
Two: The central characters are twins! I absolutely love a book that has twins, more so when those twins are fully-fleshed characters. Angela didn't disappoint.
Three: This book tackles a real-world issue: Race. The world-lore is centered around the idea that groups have separated into their races. The very title brings to attention the "biracial" characters and gives the reader plenty food for thought. Brilliantly executed.
The only fault I found was the world and imagination got a little swept away at times, leaving us lost in the details and flurry of creativity. No matter how fantastic, I prefer fantasy to be grounded. But in the beginning of the book, Angela warns the reader about this very thing, so I can't hold it against her. Having such a vivid imagination is a wonderful skill!
It is very different from the first in the series (The Five Warriors). The only similarity is Angela's descriptive writing style that rolls a vivid live action movie in your minds eye as you read.
Book one was more action and heroic deeds. Book two is full of adventures cloaked in mystery and intrigue. The plot is full of twists and surprises.
Angela does a great job of bringing the main characters to life. Each are distinctly different, yet very relatable. At times you'll be cheering for all them. Other times you'll wonder are they really working together for the same goal. That goal is of course to save their world.
Many unanswered questions are resolved at the end but the ones that aren't set the stage for the next book in the series.
"You and I both know you don't below here. I've seen the shadows behind your eyes and the questions you've bitten back. You desire to leave and find your own place to belong, but you're afraid to ask. It makes sense; you were born here, and none of us were born here. We come from air and mist, at least until the curse."
Just " ... the shadows behind your eyes ... " and I'm already curious what that's all about!
