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

Lastly, I want to talk about the book cover again. Like I said, I purchased both the ebook and physical book. The artwork is so beautiful. The covers of both Broken Dolls and Shattered Girls could easily hang on my office walls; I love them so much. I can't wait to see what the third book will look like and bring.

**eBook is from my personal library, for an honest review.
Shattered Girls is another fabulous story about living dolls. I love the idea behind the story and enjoyed reading about Ella. As a doll she's incredibly sweet, but the decision to stay in a small plastic body has done quite a bit of damage to the people who love her. Gabby and Ella are close and I liked their connection. Gabby is smart and strong, which is something I loved about her. I couldn't wait to find out if they'd be able to find the people who were behind the large number of dolls and this kept me on the edge of my seat. They're a fantastic team and that was something I enjoyed very much about their story.
Tyrolin Puxty mixes terrific descriptions of technology with an intriguing mystery. I liked the concept of living people being turned into dolls a lot. They might have been created to do good, but now someone else is using them for gain. Unfortunately this is something that often happens in reality, which is a thought-provoking subject. I was fascinated by this straight away. Shattered Girls is an adrenaline rush with original combat scenes, creepy elements and an interesting view of technology. I love Tyrolin Puxty's world building and really enjoyed reading this amazing creative story.
This book doesn't disappoint.
Tyrolin Puxty invites us back to a world in which desperate times calls for desperate measures and old enemies rise to become almost-allies.
The mechanics of this world are clearer than the last book and it is my hope that the next will be even better. This time, it is clear that it is a dystopian era, where the government seeks to control, they stage an epidemic with the help of the media which spurs the invention of a cure - which is what occurs in book 1. In this book, the government seems to be striving toward a Utopia. Where no criminals exist, no prisons and they are aiming to cull the herd so to speak, anyone who isn't intelligent is culled. They want peace, they want world domination.
That's really what sets this novel into motion these world elements, though small and scattered through the book are what make this book.
We meet new characters and some old, but the primary focus is on Gabby and Ella, their relationship grows steadily and we are able to see how it changes Ella, her decision in the last book bothered me and I'm glad to see her character develop, grow and change her view. While I was reading some parts my stomach began to turn because I remembered how she handled everything in the last book and she wasn't pleasant, but I am so glad to see that that changes. She develops in that area and because of it a small speck of romance returns to this book, too.
The end almost leaves things resolved, but not quite in a Goosebumps fashion - "you thought we were done, didn't you?" type of ending. Well, ladies and gents, there is still one more book out there and this one tethers you to the end. Where you want to read the next book and unfortunately it isn't out until next year!
Overall, action packed, fast moving, I wish there was a little more world depth, but it was a great eerie read. Some scenes [really,] had my jaw dropping.
