|New from||Used from|
"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.

About the Author
Samantha grew up in a small town in Iowa but became an expat for her Canadian husband, whom she met in the Massive Multi-player Online Role-Playing Game StarWars: Galaxies (before the NGE, of course). She's the mother of a preschooler and twin babies--a houseful of girls will definitely keep her husband on his toes.
Samantha's short fiction has appeared in AE, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. She has three novels out about angels and demons: the first two and a companion novel in her Fallen Redemption trilogy.

The continuation of Enael’s journey was filled with the same mind-blowing world-building and vivid characters as the first, and I’ll avoid mentioning who they are because that’s major spoiler territory. But let’s just say that the ending completely whipped me upside down and had me rooting for a finale I never expected.
If you love stories being retold in ways you’ve never imagined, and can’t get enough of, then this is the series—and the author—for you.
Enael is not what I imagined an Angel to be. Her struggles seem so very human. Her strength of will so weak. Her self esteem so low. As a result, she remains surprisingly easy to manipulate - puzzlingly so at times, given the apparent key role she has to play.
This book is shorter than book 1, and whilst I felt that overall, the plot and storytelling benefited from that, the resolution felt a little rushed. However, this is a much better book, in my opinion, than the first in the series.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Enael has greater forces trying to intervene in her life and not for the greater good.
This is a must-read series! I highly recommend starting with book one and going from there. Happy reading!
This story has a dash of everything I love: adventure, romance, horror, spirituality, authentic characters, gender fluidity, diversity, and historical shenanigans that tickle me pink. To add to this excellence, the writing style is so engaging that it's dangerous. Seriously. When I read GUARDING ANGEL, the world-building sucked me in so far that it took /days/ to convince myself I didn't have my own guardian angel and reincarnation plan. With REAPING ANGEL, I had all those feelings again plus vivid Jack the Ripper nightmares. You know it's a good book when it makes you feel something: you know it's a great book when it infests your very dreams.
In sum, I highly, highly recommend both GUARDING ANGEL and REAPING ANGEL to any and all adult readers. I dare you to take Enael's hand, go on a journey with her, and not come back a little bit changed.
Saboviec also manages to deftly explore deep questions about the purpose of life and the fundamental nature of reality, all while both remaining respectful of her source (or should that be Source?) material and, more importantly, the primary purpose of an author: the crafting of an entertaining tale.

But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Those big things I mentioned that happened in the first book? Well, they've become huge things in this book. Meanwhile, all Enael wants is to be an angel again, with Kaspen at her side. But between completing her penance, first by becoming embodied and then by serving indefinitely as a Reaper; withstanding Voctic's harassment; and trying to figure out the Council of Seraphim, she's got her work cut out for her.
And you thought you had it rough.
All of the things I loved about the first book are present in this one as well. I couldn't put it down, and I wish I had a third book to pick up like, yesterday. The last time a book series stuck with me this way was probably when I read the entire Hunger Games trilogy in the course of a weekend.
If you enjoyed Guarding Angel, you'll definitely enjoy Reaping Angel. Another tightly-plotted story full of well-drawn characters you can't help feeling all the things for, this book is a must-read, and more proof that trying new things is a great idea.
