"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.

This is the first installment of what promises to be an exciting new series. The writing is crisp and descriptive. The Otherworld is full of magic and mystery in which peril awaits the unwary.
The author does a wonderful job setting up the characters and unveiling Lucy’s unique heritage, but I was disappointed with the abrupt ending that I suppose will be continued in the next book.
I received this book through the Amazon Kindle Unlimited program.

First of all, let me start by giving you the biggest flaw of the book: there was not enough of it. It wasn't that it was too short (though it is only about 140 pages), it was that I just simply wanted more.
We meet Lucy, a pretty girl in high school, crushing on her best friend, Ryan. Lucy's grandmother had had a big secret, and because of a curse cast long-ago, we get to follow Lucy into the Otherworld--AKA the land of the fae folk. Her reactions are perfect. She doesn't get extremely accepting, she doesn't trust Fin, the sexy faery who has kidnapped her, and she is always at the ready with a smart comment to make the reader grin. She's extremely likable.
Fin is something else altogether. You are never sure if you can trust him as you read the book, but at the same time you want to trust him. His very essence comes across through the pages, making you fall for him easily, even as you wonder just whose side he's on.
The other characters, Ryder and Pan, are two very polar opposites. It's impossible not to love Pan, but with Ryder you get the same vibe as you do at first with Fin--whose side is he on?
This is a story for those of you who love the fantastical, the beautiful and the strange. When there isn't action and adventure, there is a described beauty so singular to a place like the Otherworld. You get so many urban fantasy and legendary species mentioned or described here, and you get to see it all through Lucy's eyes. It makes you feel, for a few short hours, that it's all real.
I could go on, but I want to stop now and let you experience the Fair Folk's world for yourself. Beware, once you enter it, you will not want to leave!

*** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Lucy is the quintessential girl next door who has a mad crush on her best guy friend Ryan. When a gorgeous Faery, dubbed Fin, enters her world she has the long ago warnings of her grandmother to help keep her head on straight. However, her iron will isn’t enough to resist all of his magical seductive charms.
Fin has found a way to get along in his own way in Faery Land but keeping his head down isn’t enough for his King’s insatiable need for new human play things that only Fin can bring to him. However, a special request for Lucy changes things for him when it becomes obvious she is not like all the others. However, the Kings magical request has Fin bound to obedience and a fate worse than death awaits if he dares to go against it.
This is a very fun read. The action begins right away. Fin and Lucy encounter an array of obstacles, characters, and twists that keep the pages turning all the way the end. I hardly every say this about a book, but I do wish it had been longer, the ending seemed to wrap up too quickly for me. I do look forward to more from H.G. Lynch and this charming Faery World that she’s created.
Fin has no choice but to bring Lucy to the king as he was told to do. But along the way him and Lucy come across many obstacles..... I really enjoyed reading this book but I did feel it should have been longer, the ending does feel a little rushed.

I was drawn into the world that H.G. Lynch created in Cursed Rebel from the very beginning.Read more
