"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.

Is it bad to say that this was like a modern, better acted, more engaging version of the Power Rangers? When I got the end of the book, that was the first thought that I had about the book. There story brought a bunch of mismatched kids who had nothing in common together, there were strange new super powers, awesome dangerous gadgets, a mysterious man who may or may not be an alien, scary monster like creatures who want to destroy mankind and another dimension (world?) that can be traveled to through portals. Umm, yes please! This was nothing like I anticipated when I first started reading and I mean that in a good way. Alyssa was able to create engaging characters, an interesting plot and the best kind of pacing that kept the reader engaged right until the last word.
Rachel is the main character, who like the reader has zero idea as to what is going on, but slowly the story starts to come together as she is given pieces to the strange she now lives right along with the reader. We get to figure out the plot and craziness right along with Rachel. Can I just say how impressive I found her to be with how mellow she was with her worldly changes, she just rolled with it. Hmm, new healing powers and visions? Yep, ok. Another dimension with evil monsters? sure, no biggie. Must be Tuesday! Her no-nonsense approach to life made the decision for her to be leader perfect. For the side characters, the other teens (or pre-teen!) who made up her super-team were unique and distinct voices, making them mesh into a solid unit without taking away from the strength of character that was Rachel.
I love that this is a standalone story in a world of series. The entire story was able to be wrapped up in a single book with no cliff hangers and I appreciate that completely. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good series, but it was nice that this is a complete story unto itself. This was a fun fast adventure that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an engaging supernatural adventure regardless of age. This was my first book by Alyssa and it won't be my last.
I received this title in return for my honest review.
