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

How they struggled with their relationships and yet found a respect and true friendship to be formed.
Interesting also is the presence of a strong independent common young girl along with the a young royalty girl.
The story takes you through their journey becoming friend and makes you anxious to see where it all leads.
Another great rendition of these people and times given to us by Zoe Saadia.
The author, as usual, is so clear and convincing in her descriptions you often feel part of the action. Her descriptions of young innocent attractions are so real you will feel tingles from your own past. This book is good clean entertainment for teens or adults who enjoy adventure at it’s best.
(The Aztec Chronicles Book 1)
Reviewed by Author Roy Murry
Young people become of age differently. During the time of the growth of the Aztec nations, a young woman of fourteen summers depending on which layer of the caste system, he or she would be in school or working in a shop learning a trade.
In Ms. Saadia’s novel, each child is representative of the royalty, middle, and working class and a female child of the working class bring the adventure together. The boys go out to looking for hidden caves, putting themselves in grave danger returning home with different types of wounds. One is missing through the night into the next day.
During the second sojourn, Chanti, the young lady takes charge of the group looking for the lost boy, who is more man than the others. We get to know the character of each member’s strengths and weakness.
The Aztec class system is at issue within the interaction of the members confronting the common enemy of their city-state. A lesson they learn is that a civilization needs complementary abilities to survive.
One member rises from a near death occasion, bringing about an ending that leads into new horizons for all the young people involved. The adventure binds them and the future of their country.
Ms. Saadia’s storytelling brings out the time and place of the Aztec Nation without being historically boring. Contrary, the lives of these adventurers is enjoyable and endearingly well done. It is a great lead-in of a series.
