"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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The dialogue and travels to each realm was enough to keep me hooked. I had to know where they were going next.
Unfortunately, I found the entire series lacking in the following:
1. All of the fight scenes felt rushed with more telling than showing.
2. Scenes were sometimes jagged as the motions of the characters were left out. It was quite jarring that someone would be talking to someone in the inn and in the next paragraph are somehow talking to someone else in another building altogether. That was really annoying.
3. A cohesive back story explaining why there were five different cultures of dragon would have been very nice. That being missing left a huge hole for me. A prequel series could clear that up. Just an idea...
4. How did the dragons become so numerous? I can't explain why I ask this question without spoilers, so I won't. Again, prequel series could clear that up, too.
5. His did this magical realm actually work to have the Desolation to the east, and a previously unknown continent to the west? Did that western continent also have magical properties?
I could go on, but I won't. I was really expecting something truly epic because of the reviews and the fact that its listed that she is a USA Today Bestseller.
I might try more of her novels in the future. We'll see.
All in all, I like the series. It's a bit immature in its presentation, but the author is clearly talented and I look forward to seeing how her work evolves over time!
*editing to add*
Erg! One of the things that nagged at me throughout the reading of this series was the strong and blatant love triangle between some of the main characters. I know that this story mechanism is popular, but that doesn't make it good. I had hoped that this was something specific to this particular series, but I have begun reading another series by this author and there is already a clear love triangle a couple chapters in. If you're not a fan of love triangles, you might want to skip this author.
One thing that bugged me but I shrugged off at the beginning was when Tressa and Bastian were supposedly running away from the city they first went to out of the fog. After running for what seemed like maybe a quarter of a mile, they stop and immediately have sex. What? Aren't they afraid of being caught because they are running? Then I believe in the third book, after they have SPLIT up and decided they didn't love each other or something like that, they decided to have sex again when they meet up again. Why? I understand the author's explanation - but I'm supposed to be rooting for the main character, not actively wishing for her demise. After that point, I read a little then just stopped.
Once again, great plot and awesome action, though it was a bit more telling then showing.
Tressa, Bastian, Connor, and Hazel and the many other inhabitants of the Dragonlands and its neighbors will cast a spell on you. This one will make you laugh and cry, and be glad that this was how you spent your time.
There were so many original plot twists that worked to maintain my interest, I became anxious each time some mundane thing like meals or dishes called me away.
I will be reading more from Megg Jensen.
