Duels (QuickSilver Codex Book 4) Kindle Edition
"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.

Since I don't know how to continue reviewing this one without giving away some spoilers so I'll just go ahead and preface this with a warning. <Spoilers Ahead>
Things with Vivien and Aedan have been on a slow burn for the previous 3 books, but we start to pick up the pace in Duels. The two have grown close while Bradan has been off training with Ciara, and when an unexpected event brings Bradan back into the picture things among the trio are no longer clear cut. Of course, I'm of the opinion, why choose? They both love her, she loves them, they're twins and twins often share, and she's going to be Queen, so why not? The more support she has the better.
The second duel with Rhuinn, which we've been building up to, goes quick. The twist after the fight was surprising and I did not see that coming. I wonder if it'll have an impact in the future? Also, Ciara's revelation at the end and Aedan's reaction to it is another twist I didn't see coming, although I should have because, in retrospect, it's pretty obvious. Aedan should not keep this hidden, because when Vivien finds out later (and she will, don't they always?) she'll view it as a huge betrayal.
So, to sum up, a great addition to the series. The only problem is I want book 5 out now! The third and final duel with Rhuinn is still ahead and the plot is really starting to thicken. Just who are all the players? Hope we find out soon, and hope that Vivien, Aedan, and Bradan get their acts together and realize they're better off together than apart.
I have been pulled into this story, and into this world of Foh’Ran, along with the characters, and I feel like I am personality invested in the outcome. I have so many remaining questions as I prepare to read the conclusion of this tale, but there is no doubt, I must read it!
