"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.

Denice's writing just gets better and better. She gives us a really good look into the backstories of the people in Shion's life in the first book. So many surprises that make so much sense when they are finally revealed. And, people, there are Dragons and Horses!
If you read a book that has glimpses of a past life, then one reads a book about said past life, one might thing that you already know the story. In this case, you'd be so wrong. Take everything you've learned in book one and toss it out the window because this world is far more complex than you could ever imagine.
And I devoured every bit of it.
"Never let anyone change what you believe in your heart. And never become something someone else wants you to become." (Mergus)
Sumayah was Shion and yet she was a different character completely. As you read and got to know her, you could see glimpses of the person she would become in another life. At the same time, the author did such a wonderful job making you feel for her and love her as her own unique character.
But what I really loved about this book is something I wonder about, but consider it too spoilery to mention here in detail. (Chapter two = Happy moment where I shouted 'I knew it.') Which led into more things I loved, and so on, and so on. Things happen in book one that would be impossible without the events of book two, in more ways than one. While reading Dragonhorse I had so many questions, some were answered along the way. But others -not unresolved, because they were- but they kept me wondering long after I finished the book. So reading Sumayah was like opening a treasure chest. I got answers to some of the whos and whys that plagued my curiosity during book one, and at the same time, I read a new, unique story that made me appreciate the first one all over again.
"...for if we do not love ourselves first, how can we possibly love another." (Celio)
Belief is a big theme in this book. Whether it's a religious belief, belief in balance and nature, or belief in oneself, it's a lesson Sumayah needs to learn, and the reader is swept along with her. But don't mistake this for a preaching book, because it is far from that. The author does a good job of posing questions and making you think while entertaining you with a great story. But like Mergus talks about in the quotation above, it's left up to the reader to form their own opinions.
I really enjoy books like this one, ones that make you think and sweep you away with a fascinating and fun story. Especially ones that force you to think without making you aware of it. If you liked book one, you certainly will love book two.
This is one of those books that when it ends, you sit there unbelieving, and hit the next button on your ereader just hoping for more. With how things ended for our heroes, the mysteries still unresolved, and the war unfinished, I am very curious about where the author is going to take us in book three.
