"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.

However, once in space, they find that any credibility they had for their massive battle at Fort Djemila, in which the fort was lost and so where many lives, means nothing. The HDF in space have faced the Scum in space, and believe the HDF forces on Earth are pathetic jokes in comparison. The Captain of the ship is a cruel, vicious character who goes out of her way to demean Ben-Ari and her troops at every opportunity.
That is until they are required to go to a Mining Colony that is in distress. The Captain immediately deploys Ben-Ari as well as the other Earther HDF troops as the Vanguard.
Whilst book one got compared to Starship Troopers, this second book is more like ‘Aliens’, as the Marines arrive to find the Mining Colony abandoned, but with some strange signs.
It is not long before troops start to go missing, and then it is on.
The remainder of this book is full on war as the Scum, with a whole host of different creations (I won’t ruin the fun!), and the Marines go head to head in a brutal and gruesome battle in which they will be lucky to survive.
Arenson steps it up a notch in this book, as it is full on war. The battles are incredible in this book, and the different creatures are not only fantastic, but they are equal parts horrific and genius, something that would make H.R. Giger want to sleep with the lights on. The story is absolutely brilliant in its intensity and the conflict.
The only thing that probably lets the story down a little bit during these scenes is that the team all get somewhat emotional during various combat scenes, and I don’t mean in the standard, having a bit of breakdown, as you would expect, some aspects of the story almost become too bogged down in the emotional states of the characters, detracting from this incredible intensity and fight scenes that Arenson had going.
However, overall, this is still another fantastic book in the series, and it is definitely worth reading. You get the impression that Arenson is working towards something, we are getting little tastes of it, snippets of the enemy and their power, but something is building, and you just have to keep reading as it is only going to get better.
Can’t wait to read part 3.
Thought, I would say there are a bit too much surprises in the second book, making it sometimes a little less convincing. With a touch of a good editor Arenson can be a first line science fiction writer, owing to his extraordinary descriptive ability.
It's such a compelling narrative. You watch these characters train, learn, and grow. The story doesn't start with action, it starts with training. You get to experience the fights from start to finish with the characters instead of simply reading about what they do.
A good down to earth book of military persons from draftee to privates in the service. It is a stretch of the authors imagination, but I enjoyed the book and look forward to more Sci Fy!
