"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

It took them months to find her which I also find hard to believe as all of these guys are super human in skills and resources. Stiles was a huge letdown because I really liked his character, but he was painted as a sociopath in the end.
The last part with the space ship was just a bit over the top and unbelievable. Lastly, we spend the first three and a half books, including this one, reading about failed intimacy attempts and when they FINALLY come together it's quick and awful. Even he was apologizing. That was just the worse. Aside from all this I still like the overall story hence the three stars.
In each book of the series, Island and March have fought the bad guys and aside from being scraped up pretty badly, they have succeeded in thwarting many plans. This time a stolen space aircraft (the Odyssey) has been rebuilt for a special destructive mission just outside the earth's atmosphere. When the final battle comes, Island is put on that spacecraft and hurdles into space with 9 other villains intent on destroying specific targets in the US. It is a political motivation against the president and madness on the part of Anies who is the supervillain in charge. It looks like there is no happy ending in sight.
The book is a series of challenges for Island who has had a device implanted in her brain that removed her memories. She fights against everyone once she reconnects with March, although there is discord there as well. It is amazing that the author can keep coming up with dangers and subsequent escapes for these stories without repetition. Somehow she keeps each story fresh and exciting while moving forward. Interspersed with the violence is often tenderness and humor.
Read the series if you are an adventure lover, but make sure you start at book one, otherwise you won't have as many memories as Island even!
This installment was not as light-hearted/omg funny like the previous books and it had a bit of a darker feel to it. (I totally get the fact that the romance quotes didn’t grace the chapter headings, except for near the end because of that.) I normally don’t really like amnesia plots, but I think that it totally worked to introduce all of the wtf that went on within this book. I also thought it a good way to introduce, or re-introduce, the characters we previously met and give us a different perspective than we initially got. I guess it could almost be a second first impression at times. Island and March getting to know each other again, this time not under the total fast paced rate they met the first time … I just enjoyed it and thought it got their relationship to be deeper and more ensconced.
There were a lot of twists, some expected happenings, in this here story and while some were nice to see some … just made me want to cry I try hard not to give spoilers when I babble about books I read, but omg I got why they had to die but doesn’t mean I have to like it. It looked like they were finally going to forge an interesting relationship of sorts. Some deaths were deeply satisfying though, deeply satisfying. I wasn’t totally expecting that ending, well I guess I did at some point, but I got distracted regarding the stuff Island and March were wrapped up into so I didn’t even think about it. When I look back I totally get a “doh!” sort of thought as in I should’ve seen that but didn’t.
The intrigue and all of the action were great no matter the setting and once again I will praise the fact that there weren’t any settings that touched on being in the US and I really loved that. Too many books out there revolve around the US and I like to read about not being here…. Which is why I also love fantasy and sci-fi books.
I can’t wait for the next story and to see how Monk tops what she’s written so far because it seems like she has done that with each new book. I think I might’ve gone crazy if I weren’t able to binge read, over the past few days, books 1-4. Now I get to catch up on sleep and things I put off so that I could read this series.
