"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Reviewed by author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne
The action in this novel is fantastic. This is Anthony's forte. She keeps you turning the pages quickly anytime there's action because it's fast paced and exciting!
I will continue to read this series. I love that there wasn't a cliffhanger and that all the novels in the series will be stand alones. I could actually see a story written about each of the characters since they all have different powers. I hope one of the novels goes in depth with the training at the Org. That sounded really interesting!
I love a strong female, and Annie takes it to another level. Not only is her strength physical, but she’s been able to withstand a tremendous heartbreak and continue on without being bitter at the world. Her anger towards her ex is another issue altogether, but we can’t blame her for that. For someone who can crush bones, she has a kind, gracious, honest spirit which made me like her.
There is a lovely romance set within this action packed novel which I loved. I won't tell you between who because I don't do spoilers.
Other than the gorgeous cover and amazing blurb, I bought this book because of Ms. Anthony’s witty blog posts. I expected to laugh while reading this novel and she did not disappoint.
One of the issues I had was that the dialogue seemed a little immature for people of their age, magnitude, and power level. Not that I was expecting them to sound old, but these were characters who’d had to grow up quickly in life and took on a great dal of responsibility.
I recommend this book to everyone who seeks an adventure and for a short while wants to forget they don’t live in a world without awesome powers. Oh the potential of life if we were all Luminaries. I'd want to be Kinetic for sure.
The multitude of characters in Kinetic speak of a much broader world and I can't wait to read more about them. The story itself really pulls you in. With Annie's past looming over her you instantly understand her pain and are right there with her for the whole ride. Kevin is one of my favorite characters in the story and I can't wait to read more about him.
The action is gripping, the romance is breathtaking and the twist will have you flipping pages quickly. This is an amazing debut for an incredible new author. I feel we will be seeing much more of miss Anthony in the future.
I did enjoy this book, and when I set it down I always wanted to pick it up and read more. I did struggle with the character development and I found myself struggling to figure out what each luminary's power was, and I could not remember from the earlier descriptions. This was especially confusing in the end when additional powers were being developed.
I think with better-developed/more in-depth details on the characters, this will be a fantastic series to follow.
