"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 loved that this book kept you guessing for a long time as to what was going on (and who would turn out to be 'the Heir' of the title). It was pretty fast paced with plenty of action once the plot starts to unfold. This is part one of a trilogy so if you want to know how it all ends you'll want to read on as I suspect the story is about to get really interesting.
I don't really want to say too much about the plot (no spoilers). Enough to say that main character, Sara, is someone many readers will relate to. The outside girl at school. The one who never quite fits in. She's already been through some hard times, and things are not all that great right now.
Then a tragedy shakes her world to the core.
And then her world is turned upside down and nothing will ever be the same again.
1. Exciting, fast paced sci-fi story.
2. No bad language.
3. Gentle romantic thread running through the story.
Sorry, can't think of any. This was, quite sincerely, a very enjoyable read. (Don't be put off by the cover. It really doesn't do the book justice.)
Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys young adult sci-fi/fantasy. If you are looking for a great, clean read for your teenagers, this is it.
The terrible tragedy which struck one night when Sarah wasn’t home was the beginning of a change so strange, so unbelievable that Sarah felt lost and out of her depth most of the time. Dan’s protection and comfort felt safe to Sarah; but she soon realised that there was an element of mystery and danger surrounding her as well. She wasn’t sure what was happening; even who Dan really was…
The Heir is the first in the Verindon Trilogy and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Normal high school days with teenage angst; different classes; attentions of an unwanted kind; unrequited love – all flowed through to set the stage for what was to follow! The second part of the book was pretty intense as the action and pace ramped up, leading to a conclusion which left me wanting more. Book 2 won’t be far away! Highly recommended.
