"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.

I just loved this book. To begin with, I wasn't sure how it could ever measure up to the Jade Calhoun series that it's a spin off from. But how could I ever expect anything but excellence from Deanna? She is truly talented. The characters are so lovable, except for that awful female cop! Jade and Kane are also in the book a lot. I can't wait to read the next one. This kept me guessing until the end. I wasn't sure who the killer was. In fact, I hate to admit it but I cheated a little by peeking at the end. lol I know, I'm bad. The audiobook is to die for. The narrator makes it come alive even more. I want to live in this world and be part of it. This is a wonderful read and an even better listen to! You won't be sorry if you purchase both.
Pyper is your ordinary, run of the mill girl. She's a former strip club manager, current artist working with body paint and models, and owns a coffee shop. She also talks to spirits, and lusts after an especially fine ghost. New Orleans normal, right?
She and her friend Jade, an empathy, artist, and witch, seem to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. Pyper finds a murdered woman, and the plot thickens quickly from there.
Well written with quick pacing, fast wit, and Deanna's signature blend of sexy paranormal mystery, this is a fun read.
So what is It? The lead character can hear, see and communicate with spirits and the passed beyond set. Calls herself a medium and that's good enough. Her friends are witches, demon hunters ghosts and spirit guides. Her ex-boyfriend (mentioned but not seen) is a ghost hunter. There are covens, witches councils (Ala Bewitched but without the comedy) as well as black magic users. This first case involves what amounts to a black magic vampire witch. The witch doesn't drink their blood but does use the unwilling sacrifices to extend the witches life.
The story unfolds with a murder, for which our heroine is arrested for, and gets more complicated quickl6. There is romance, with frustrated sexual energy overtones. Your teenager could read this book, enjoy it and sleep at night. It's a good read fast paced and exciting. I really liked it. Perhaps you will too!
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you

I am a Deanna Chase junkie. There. I said it. Loud and proud, Baby! Her Jade Calhoun series, beginning with Haunted on Bourbon Street is an automatic ‘must buy’ for me. The books combine fantasy, humour, great characters and of course the spectacular New Orleans life into a treat for the reader.
We first met Pyper Rayne in Haunted when she was being terrorized by one of the nastiest ghosts you can imagine. Now, with Spirits, Stilettos, and a Silver Bustier Pyper gets her own series – (yes, that is me, dancing around the room and giggling. Get over it. ;-) )
Pyper’s life is working out pretty well, if she does say so herself. She owns her own coffee shop right next to the stripper bar where she used to work. Her friends are all safe (for now), she has good friends, and she is getting ready for a gallery showing of her body painting. Exciting! The only thing is – when she shops for a vintage dress for her gallery show, everything starts running off the rails. The shop owner ends up dead, and Pyper is the prime suspect. Add to that the ghostly voices coming from the walls, and the hot ghost who is following her around, and life is getting a lot less happy than it was just yesterday.
Spirits is a great new addition to the original series. Pyper was always one of my favorites of the Bourbon Street series, and the first book in her series does wonders for the character. We get to meet new characters, including a sexy ghost with highly unusual talents, the mystery is very well done as all Deanna’s mysteries are, and the setup for the next book is awesome. If you like your UF with a bit of mystery, not a lot of ‘over the top’ smexy, and a good deal of humour, this is a series you should try!
I receive this book from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review. Highly recommended.
