"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.

Rosella is an imperious full-blood Drakken; she's also a lovely young creature who may have won Copper's heart. Her insults have caused him to fly off in search of another world and she too has disappeared. Her own kind might not be sorry to see her go, but they won't abandon her to this dangerous world. This sequel to Darkspire Reaches doesn't disappoint. Raven and Connor are now mature parents and reverred leaders. Copper, though impetuous has a good heart while Rosella needs to learn a few life-lessons to survive. C.N Lesley has again created a fantastical story anchored in the realism of her characters' emotions. Looking forward to the next instalment.
The book begins without preamble. I was thrown right into the trouble and mistrust that seem to plague Copper from birth. He had been able to ignore it, but in this instance he found it difficult coming from the one he'd least expect, Rosella, his childhood mate. It hurt even more when his friends stood by and did nothing. (But I’m jumping ahead of myself). The pace was set, and the reader is taken on a fast-paced ride, which sometimes have you reeling, and holding on to the edge of your seat. As a non-fantasy reader, I held on, and got so into it, I was sadly disappointed when it came to an end. But the truth of the matter is, even in fantasy worlds, jealousy, strive, and mistrust still exist when it comes to those that are different to what’s accepted or expected as the norm. Envision the possibility, a world ruled by serpents and Shangroves: “We coversss the whole worldsss sooon and then no more peoplesss, only ssserpentsss and Sssshangroves I highly recommend this book to fantasy readers.
The characters, as always, were engrossing, and this book was like visiting old friends, whom I had missed. To jump into the future was a clever move by the author, as she gave me a completely new and fresh look at a story, which I have randomly thought about since I read it over a year ago.
There are some fantastic twists and quite shocking developments in this new book. It is emotional, exciting, and highly addictive. When I reached the end I was thrilled to see that maybe, just maybe, there will be another book. The characters are still compelling and to be honest, I have not yet had enough of this beautifully written and highly polished story.
This story kept me reading into the small hours of the morning. Gripping story, with a good development of characters, I grew fond of Raven, the female protector who is as much a mother as she is a warrior.
I felt the Drakkens’ pain was well expressed in Connor’s mishap, Cooper’s struggles to become a man and in Rosella coming of age learning compassion in a harsh and horrible manner.
Their world is not an easy one with conflict waiting around every bend. Yet this is a story we can also reflect to today’s times and bring into our own world. Food for thought. After all, most people will find preferable to learning any lesson we encounter along the way in a more tasteful manner—prevention being the ounce we can take. Well done!
As always the writing is impeccable and the story engrossing. CN Lesley creates a vivid world that absorbs you. You feel the characters' anguish and are there beside them as they battle for their lives. I'm looking forward to the next book, which I assume with tell the story of the next generation of Drakken.
Despite the challenges that he faces, Copper is determined to do the right thing. Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what that is.
C.N Lesley continues to hold readers in thrall with the fantasy masterpiece Serpent of the Shangrove, sequel to Darkspire Reaches. It was great to see Kryling again. The little firedrake has his good and bad sides, but managed to lodge himself in my heart anyway.
