"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.

The reason I haven't rated it higher as to each individual book is that despite my perception of it as "light" sci-fi, the characters don't have a lot of emotional depth and the basic storyline of captain/mom headed to get her child after the war and the ensuing problems don't move forward as urgently as I would expect of a mom.
Alisa's faith in the Alliance has taken a beating since we met her in book 1. Things aren't looking up for her in that regard with this book. She's been abandoned, lied to, and ... I don't know, other stuff. She's seeing the cracks in their armor now and what she's finding doesn't seem nearly as honorable as the cyborg who once fought against everything she stood for.
Speaking of Leonidas, we got to see a little more of the person who's lurking under his stony facade. He's slowly starting to share pieces of himself and the more we're told, the more I like him.
I felt for Yumi. I like Mica's commitment to finding the downside to every situation. I'm not loving on Dominguez, but I'm holding out that he'll grow on me. Eventually. Or he'll betray everything Alisa holds dear and she'll do something drastic. EITHER ONE.
I already have book 4 queued up for my reading pleasure. Let's see where it takes us!
-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal
Alisa is still looking for her Daughter, and as a part of this mission, has decided to go and seek out the dreaded Starseers, the alleged last people to see her, mainly due to a vid showing them abducting her. Alejandro also wishes to see the Starseers in relation to the Orb, as they may have useful information for him.
The Starseers are psychics - with mental abilities ranging from telepathy and telekinesis all the way to pyro kinesis - the ability to create and manipulate fire with the mind.
Lindsay Buroker’s Characters are easily the best thing about her work, the sheer depth of the characters, the way they bring the story to life, and capture the reader is exceptional. A story is nothing without good characters, and Buroker’s characters give her story the superior edge to make it stand-out.
The rest of the crew are also in these Firefly-esk story, with the Captains crew of the Mechanic who wants a job, the Merc Security Guard who is being hunted by the Mob, and then their passengers, the strange Yumi, selling ‘medicinal’ products and riding with her chickens (because who doesn’t travel with chickens in space), and then Leonidas, the ex-Empire Cyborg who is now traveling with Alejandro, the Monk, who used to work for the Empire, but is now carrying a holy artefact in hopes of saving the now dead Empire.
This series has humour, battles, humour, and is exactly what every fan of Firefly has ever wanted in a story. Han Solo groupies will also find something for their entertainment.
This series continues to develop as well. As with the aforementioned Firefly, the Fallen Empire Characters have developed through each book, as we learn new things about each of our crew and passengers and their pasts. Buroker treads that line of letting us know information so as to not annoy the reader with too many plots and never revealing characters secrets, to making sure there is always something interesting to read on about.
Encompassing all of this is the most incredible Universe, with amazing planets, spectacular tech and ships and beautifully described planets. Buroker has designed and developed her ‘Galaxy’ with intimate detail and it fully immerses the reader in the story.
This was an exceptional series before, but the additional mystery of the Starseers has only improved it. A must read for fans, and if you haven't picked up this series yet, do yourself a favour and start now!
