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

Other elements to the novel are also well implemented, though aren't as inspired as the world-building. The plot is solid, with enough twists and entwined threads to entertain. The ending is highly satisfying. The characters are realistic, occasionally likable, occasionally endearingly infuriating. The novel is also quite long, which readers should enjoy, thought it can make it rather harder to read in a single sitting.
Overall, a fun dark fantasy romp which fans of Sanderson should really enjoy. Recommended to fantasy readers; strongly recommended to dark fantasy readers, those that crave original worlds, and fans of the Mistborn series.
- rich world building
- some magic, but not available to every character
- consistent use of the world's properties throughout
- good spell checking and sentence construction
There are a few minor items that had issues:
- seemed long to me
- too much back story on some of the characters
- some of the characters overly risked their lives, not sure why
I liked the book and hope to see others from this author. It was a good and lengthy read - you're not going to get through it in one or two sittings.
The characters have their own storylines and backgrounds, sometimes too much. I found myself enjoying the motivations behind the different people in the book and seeing how they interacted as the story moved forward.
