"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.

I've been on the Melissa band wagon from the beginning. I've read everything she has written, and when I saw the blurb for this book, I knew I had to try it out. I was so pleasantly surprised by HOW MUCH I ended up loving it.
Plot wise, Melissa has always been a genius. This is no exception. While we don't get a HUGE idea of what the overarching plot will be, Fury Frayed sets the tone and the pace for the books that will follow. There are so many new creatures that I haven't seen in many novels as of late: Succubi and Griffins, then there are also the paranormal creatures that we all are very familiar with and love: Werewolves and mermaids and sirens. There is this beautiful blend of these mythical creatures that live all together trying to figure out how to live with the rest of humanity, and it's bloody hilarious.
If we are talking characters, then Melissa has outdone herself. Those that loved Bethi and Isabelle from Jo6 will find Megan quite the sarcastic and temperamental treat. She is a no BS, boss of a teenager, and you instantly fall in love with her. There is no maiden to be saved here people, Megan will save her damn self- and all of her friends while she is at it. She does not play the victim, because she's the hero. And along for the ride you have a shameless flirt of a werewolf, a overprotective griffin who brings loyalty to a whole new level, and a slightly insecure hugmaster of a succubus. The mash of these characters is so humorous, but also works really well together.
Overall, you wont be disappointed, I promise. If you were debating reading this novel, do it. If you weren't sure you can fall in love with characters again after the Judgement of Six series, you can. If you need a good laugh and fantastic writing to boot, look no further. This is going to be such an amazing series, I can't wait for all of you to fall in love with these characters like I have <3
(SIDE NOTE: If you dont buy this book for any other reason, there is a Clabby scene at the end that you DO NOT want to miss! It's to die for!)
If you like snarky teenage heroines, then this book will feed your craving. You might even be ready to smack someone upside the head after a few chapters. But Megan has a good reason for all her irritation. It just takes too long for her to figure it out.
Also, for someone who didn't believe in magic, she seemed to acclimate to the world of supernatural creatures pretty easily. (I really want to slap her mother for not being more forthcoming.)
My favorite part is the mystery. It isn't too complex, but it adds spice since the romantic element is stuck in the "attraction" phase for this book. I like that since we have the entire series to develop the relationship, and I hope Haag will give us more than physical attraction and instinct. I'd like for teen readers to see that a lasting relationship isn't just about the hormones, and I think Haag has the skill and depth to do that.
I'm looking forward to joining Megan in her journey of self-discovery. If you like all sorts of mythological creatures and would love to see them interacting in a realistic way with our modern world, you'll want to read this book. And you may want to pet a griffin after reading, too.
Oh… Holy… Wow…. This book left me speechless. The plot of this book is so fresh and new that I was completely shocked by it. I don’t want to reveal too much so I will just say this. Our main heroine arrives to a new town and learns that everything might not be quite like it seems. Did that intrigue you enough? I sure hope so because if not you are missing out.
Megan is such a wonderful female character. She is strong and independent, but she also has some soft areas as well. I think she is exactly what we need in our female characters, especially for some of our younger readers. She stands up for what she believes is right and tries to learn from her mistakes. I like this about her. The other characters in the story are written well too. They all have a unique personality and purpose in the book. I really like how the author is able to create these characters this way.
There is a bit of flirty attraction in this book. Megan has two males who enter her life as she begins this journey in the new town. Each male has his own attributes that make him appealing for our Megan. Each have scenes in the book which makes the readers question what is going on between them. With that being said, by the end, there is a clear solution to this. There is a slow burn throughout the story between Megan and one of the boys that will leave the reader feeling satisfied.
I have always loved this author’s writing style, but she never ceases to amaze me. This book is a whole different world than anything else she has ever written. This book has new characters that are so beautifully written. The plot is unique that I can honestly say I have not read anything like it. I cannot wait to learn more about this world. The pace of this book is written steady and I think that the revelation of new information is perfect for the story.
Overall, I am in love with this new world. How long do I have to wait for the next one? Too long I believe! I need it now! I think it is safe to say that I would recommend this book to others. If you love paranormal books with a lot of action and mystery and a bit of romance, then this book is for you. There is nothing too racy in this book. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.
