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

About the Author
Bitten by the writing bug at the age of ten, Pen is an avid reader in addition to being a prolific writer. A native Georgian she lived in Hollywood, California for a year and a half (pursuing Film Studies – an interesting distraction) and six weeks in Asheville, NC (attempting to get herself together).
Influenced by the world around her, Pen writes whatever comes into her fuzzy little red head (currently Vidal Sassoon Merlot Vibrant Red). She writes in no specific genre as she has a variety of interests and passions about which to write.
In addition to reading and writing, Pen loves movies and music, particularly the music of the 80s and prior. Again, her passions for movies and music are as eclectic as her writing and reading. Not a huge fan of television she is, nonetheless, currently an avid follower of ABC’s Once Upon A Time television series. So much so, that this series inspired her to write the Sword of Tilk Trilogy and influenced the writing of Nero’s Fiddle, though it is hardly recognizable in any of those tomes.
Pen enjoys reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Agatha Christie, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, James Rollins’ Sigma Force series, Lindsay Buroker, Kathryn Harvey and Judy Mercer (may she rest in peace). A host of other authors grace her bookshelves, too numerous to mention. She has been known to reread books numerous times.
Pen currently resides in the Atlanta, Georgia area where she is staff to two felines.

The book summary does a good job of giving you an overview of the book so I'd like to say here the things that I really liked about it and what made it a good book to me.
I was expecting a fantasy book. I got that but more. I could relate to the characters and I cared about them. I liked that Pen used fantastical creatures but not the typical ones you see in books all the time. They were imaginative and I loved getting to know the Grifflestump. The author struck the perfect balance of being descriptive enough to set the scene but leaving enough so that my own imagination could fill in. It was also great to witness Barbara's growth from a struggling single mother with little self confidence to a strong woman.
I'm looking forward to the next book!
