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

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Manners fashions a tasty fantasy." ~Publishers Weekly

"4.5 out of 5 stars.  This is fantasy fiction you can sink your teeth into ... a book I want to hand to everyone I love and say, 'Here, read this. Don't ask me any questions. Just do it.' If you are a fantasy/sci-fi lover with a healthy love of adventure and romance of the best kind, you will not regret this investment." ~San Francisco Book Review

"4 out of 5 stars.  ... an epic fantasy in the style of JRR Tolkien, with a dash of George R. R. Martin's brutal realism ... an exceptional debut novel, and a great fantasy novel in general. Definitely worth a read." ~ Portland Book Review

"5 out of 5 stars. The Martyr's Blade welcomes readers into an incredibly dense and meticulously crafted world that becomes more enrapturing with every chapter. The world-crafting on display in this novel, particularly in the complexity of the plot and the thorough development of each character, makes this an epic tale from the very start, and something very special in the genre. The only real problem is the difficulty one will have trying to put the book down." ~Self-Publishing Review

"5 out of 5 stars.  Manners' writing style is impeccable. His descriptions were vivid, his characters were colorful and engaging, and his plot was captivating, suspenseful and filled with action. ... an impressive first novel worthy of five out of five stars as an epic fantasy read that the audience will find very difficult to put down. Manners has definitely won me over personally, as a fan that will wait impatiently for the next book in this series."~Reader Views

"4 out of 5 stars.  THE MARTYR'S BLADE is a cohesive and exciting debut novel in the classic sword and sorcery style that starts this promising series. ... With plenty of swordplay and magic, THE MARTYR'S BLADE is an enjoyable read that follows many of the genre's conventions, but still keeps the characters at the center of the story." ~IndieReader
