"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.

Thank the Lords of the Dark, Captain Conrad Redeker finally matures. Amazing what a little strife and responsibility will do for a person. Maybe Jira will mature in book 3. While speaking of maturity, what’s with Sanctuary’s High Council, they react like the old adage of an ostrich putting it’s head in the dirt. I was also glad to see Fleet Captain Tarillion play a significant role in this chapter of the storyline. Hope to see more of him in future issues.
Well edited - Kudos to all that assisted in that endeavor.
I’m expecting GREATNESS for the remainder of the DARKSPACE SAGA series, whether it’s 3 books or 8. I can even see the ground work for a possible spinoff series down the road.
OK, Now I’m ready for book 3.
Wonder ... if Ms. Kellogg likes pressure?
I cannot recommend this book.
Centuries in the future, Earth, now named "Sanctuary," is in a defensive posture, closing off "portals" (read wormholes) to far flung space, as the few colonized systems, and the Sol System, are wary of the dangers that lay without. Various alien races, remnants of destroyed civilizations, have found some respite within the controlled spheres of Sanctuary space. A Protectorate Fleet captain, Conrad, is again dispatched on a covert intelligence gathering mission, with his cohorts, and a larger vessel and crew, into "Darkspace," hoping to gain "Federation" allies against the "Empire."
Miss Kellogg writes well, creating likable characters, who operate under the most fortuitous of stars. If a reader doesn't look too closely at the plot "leaps," and luck that the characters are endowed with, it is a fun read. At times, especially in the book's opening, the chaotic narrative can be distracting. The book's conclusion, is also rushed. As much of the narrative, storyline, and plots are dependent upon Book 1, readers of Book 2 will find themselves untethered, adrift in open space. As such, "Sanctuary Gambit," cannot be truly described as a stand alone novel. Additionally, as with most series, the ending, while not technically a cliffhanger, it does leave open questions. This reader looks forward to answers in a Book 3.
"Sanctuary Gambit," is recommended and was fully read via Kindle Unlimited.
I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.
I will gladly gobble up the next one. Well done, B.C. I could see this being a series of movies one day.
