"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.

Blindsided is pure K D Grace, full of erotic energy, fierce conflicts and difficult decisions. The already tangled web of relationships among her main characters only grows more complex in this second book of her series, as Susan is forced into an intimacy with Reese that neither wants, and the Guardian spirit possessing her reaches out to touch her lover Michael as well.
The novel introduces some intriguing new characters, most notably dedicated police officer Paul Danson, who is somehow immune to vampires’ glamor spells. The story also reveals a good deal more about Magda Gardener, the legendary Medusa—both her history and her personality. In fact there appears to be a chemistry between these two characters, which I’d like to see Ms. Grace explore in the next installment.
Overall, I found the book a bit chaotic. There were too many battle scenes for my personal taste, and perhaps too few love scenes. Still, I enjoyed the ride. The dream-world interactions between Susan and the Guardian took my breath away. The sex-drenched rituals of blood sharing are arousing but still edged with terror. As usual, Ms. Grace does not shy away from the dark side of lust and power.
Almost all the stories I’ve read by K D Grace have been set in the English countryside. The urban environment in this tale felt a bit strange, unreal. Certainly, I didn’t recognize the New York City I know. That doesn’t matter much, however. The focus in this book, like all of K D Grace’s work, is on the characters—their desires, their fears, their weaknesses and their surprising strengths.
I’m eager to follow Susan, Reese, Michael, Alonso, Magda and Paul into the next book of the series.
