"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.

All Malina Tarver wants is a normal life. Since long before she lost her adoptive parents, she’s always been in some kind of trouble. Not one to follow rules, Malina drifts from job to job, surviving with help from her two older brothers. Tired of being the family screw-up, Malina is determined to make her latest job work…if she can just avoid her boss’ creepy, married son and not get attacked again by those shadowy demon-things. All she wants is to be able to take care of herself…and get her Nana out of that horrid nursing home.
Orlosian warrior Asriel cannot be bothered…with anything. He’s feeling disoriented and unfocused and he needs to find out why. He has no time to be sent to Earth to babysit a HUMAN, of all things. And besides, the last time he was on Earth, there was that…thing…and it cost a lot of lives. He’s in no hurry for a replay. However, the Council has spoken and Asriel is indeed sent to Earth to watch over Malina until she makes contact with a mystery man.
As Asriel arrives to Earth, Malina is harassed by her boss’ son, attacked by demons…and finds a puppy…all in the same evening! She also senses Asriel’s presence – something she shouldn’t be able to do. Asriel is also puzzled as he is helplessly drawn to the human female – something else that has never happened before.
Calm Assurance contains several mysteries and many secrets. Who is Asriel and where is he from? Why are demons after Malina? Who pulled a teenage Malina from her burning home? Who was Malina’s father, and what is her grandmother hiding? Who is Joseph Ward and what does the Council want with him? And…who/what is Malina?
Malina and Asriel have to work together to figure out her significance to the Council, and it will not be easy. The closer Malina gets to Asriel, the more he pulls away. To be with her means he’ll become one of the Fallen, and the only way he can survive…is to drink her blood.
Tightly written, detailed story that draws you right in! Asriel is the consummate alpha male – without all the arrogance and chest beating. #TeamAsriel
Malina is a jewel! Strong and determined, she has no time for tears, whining or running. She wants to know who she is…and what she is. And she wants Asriel. A must read for all paranormal lovers, especially fans of Nephilims.
Bring on book 2!
Orlosian Warriors are children of angels and humans, who live in an in-between space of Heaven and Earth. Normally a warrior such as Asriel would as soon kill a charge as watch over them due to his strength and disgust with how humans refuse to take care of themselves and bring trouble to their own doors.
Malina is a human ( she thinks) but has always been able to tell when trouble was coming, a sixth sense if you will. As the book goes on you will find her sixth sense is a hint at bigger things to come. I don't do spoilers, but I will tell you that Minions of evil are already knocking on Malina's door before Asriel ever shows up. And it will take them both to keep her safe and Asriel from falling and breaking the commandments he has lived by for centuries.
This book has extremely hot but with well written love scenes that move with the story and are not just thrown in for heat level, and while it does not have a cliff hanger, it leaves room for Dariel Raye to write many more Stories of the Nephilim and their Human loves/soul mates if you will. There is a definite Paranormal spin to this book that I thoroughly enjoyed and think you will too. Well written and wonderfully fleshed out charachters !! Definite 5 stars.
I read the story originally in the anthology Paranormal Obsessions, and received the copy as a gift.
The writing style flows very well, the characters are very well thought out as well.
The story follows Asriel who is sent to guard Malina. She has a knack for attracting trouble.
He runs into bad things from his past. If he chooses to love her, he cannot go back to his home and she will have to agree to let him survive off of her blood. Will she let him make that choice? And can he fight his past demons and protect her from his enemies?
You will have to read the book for the answers!
Cannot wait to read book 2!
