"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.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"I find the history of stone circles particularly fascinating, and Ms. Gray did a fantastic job of weaving intelligent research with vivid fantasy in a way that kept me reading (and guessing!) long into the night." - S.M.Freedman, Author, The Faithful 

"To me, the best part of the story is the joy and excitement which Gray writes it. You can tell it's a subject she is particularly interested in, and that love of the topic really makes the story shine." - J.D. Faulkener, Author, Mirrored Time 


"Although Slater is aimed at teens, the pace, content and maturity of the main character make it also a perfect choice for adults too." - Paula Yourell, Author, Against the Light

From the Author

Being an Outil, Slater was supposed to be the craftsman of the three boys, but just like me, the very last thing he wants to do is conform. Yeah, he is very practical and his ability to solve problems under dire pressure gets him out of some very dark holes, but he is basically all about the connection to earth energies (ley lines). More than any of them, Slater is put into life-threatening pickles, topped off with being catapulted back thousands of years where people didn't have the same language skills, making communication difficult. 

Stone circles have always drawn me to them, but none more than Avebury - Stonehenge's bigger, but less well-known, sister. Long after this book was completed, I continue to celebrate many a summer (and winter) solstice at this incredibly spiritual site. Every year sees at least half a dozen excuses to revisit - usually introducing people who've never been there to the magical experience that is the serpent temple at Avebury.
This story attempts to explain how and why the two henges were built and offers an insight into the people of the period.

Here's part of my fave scene:
Slater froze, with all senses alert as the shaman shouted, 'Aurala, Slater, down!'
Parting some of the branches to peer down, Slater could see a couple of the men preparing to climb the tree.
'No. Tauroch harm Slater.' Aurala's tone was pure defiance.
The rage on the shaman's face suggested that the longer they took, the more he would suffer. Slater didn't doubt the man's intention, nor his ability to carry out his threats.
Aurala's face was calm, as though the threat was of no consequence.
As Slater wondered who would break first, the Shaman howled his frustration, and then hissed the consequences of any further disobedience.
'Not come down, Tauroch slay Slater.' When there was no answer, he issued a curt command to climb.
Without warning, Aurala let out a piercing scream and threw herself off the branch.
