"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.

This is the start of a three book story arc, with the next book dealing with the Muslim colony. I really enjoy this series and recommend it highly. I very seldom give 5 stars, but I had to for this book. That being said, there continue to be editing issues, especially with names and ranks not always being consistent. This series could stand a continuity check.
The book brings Earth and the alien Alliance into an uneasy alliance, and thus Sorilla and the Sentinel Kriss are working together. She has been promoted, but is still in the forefront of any action. The problem they must jointly address involves two lost colonies that have turned up in Alliance space, peopled by Muslim and white supremacy extremists respectively, from Earth. There is a mystery to be solved, and by the end of the action on one colony world it is clear that doing so will require at least one more volume, on the other.
The action is suitably fierce, the underlying political issues are plausible, and the characters of Sorilla and Kriss are engaging. This is top drawer space opera of a very special sort. I want more!
I am looking forward to the next two books in the arc and future stories in this universe. Evan has a lot of mysteries to reveal in future books.
