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

This story is a melange of historical figures, classic gods and goddesses, spirits and a whole lot of humor thrown in to situations that when peeled back, are not humorous at all, as most good literature and fantasy does. In this case, Cascadia, the spirit created to protect the land, learns how to deal with a serial rapist-killer; then a father-son duo who kill bears for trade in body parts; and so on. The story is divided into episodes that have Cascadia and her “familiar”, a human woman, defending this Eden-like country from the worst part of human nature.
It’s probably one of the most unique fantasies I’ve read recently.
Wow - what a fun first read by a new to me author. I enjoyed it so much I'm going to look for more by her. Admittedly I had a tougher time than usual getting into this book but when I did - again Wow. This is a well written book with quirky characters galore, gods, mythical and historical figures, mystery, crimes to solve, broken humans to fix, humor, great dialogue and did I mention T-shirts? Lots and lots of T-shirts. This made me think - always a good thing- and made me laugh - even better, Can I hope for a sequel? Highly recommend.

I enjoyed this far more than I had expected to. I have never read anything by this author previously so I didn't know what to expect as far as writing style goes. This relatively fast read was enjoyable. I've never read a book quite like this one before. I'll definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
I received an ARC in return for an honest review.
