"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.

Once I started reading the book, I found that I didn't want to put it down. I became immersed in an incredibly detailed world of complicated characters and settings. I couldn't imagine how long H.B. took to create two different realms and dozens of characters--all of them totally believable.
I felt sympathy for characters that were forced to deal with morally grey areas, conflicts between different kinds of relationships, the loss of loved ones, and new lifestyles.
In the end, this was a story about acceptance, believing in oneself, embracing change, and triumphing over the odds. The characters, and the setting, were secondary for me.
My only concern was that there was no Table of Contents page.
Kudos to a young, gifted author! I know that her talents will take her far!
In this world, each character leads a seemingly normal human life until a change occurs. This change gives them the ability to shift form into beast-like creatures as well as other special attributes such as magic and second sight. These gifts are bestowed on a select group of individuals, who organize themselves into packs, so that they can protect humans from the evil that lurks in the other realms (and often finds its way into the human world).
The central group of characters, the Lightning Lords, must overcome much adversity, including juggling their secret identities with their human responsibilities, the loss of key members of their pack and a potentially devastating threat to the humans they are charged with protecting.
I found the story to be a bit confusing at first, having not read the first book in the series, Seeds of Autumn, but Lyne’s ability to guide the reader through her world kept me turning the pages.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
Like you ate one of the characters. H.B. Lyne can write a story that surprises at every turn, and her descriptions of people, and placers, !make it all the note real. A few editorial mistakes. Senytace construction or two, a wrong word or saying here and there. Not the authors fault. Its the editors. All in all? Great book, s must for your t.b.r. pile.
