"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.

Each of the books ends at a logical point, with the current challenges resolved--and strings left dangling for a sequel (less so the last book. The last book completes the series, but I'm sure the author could go back to this world and do more Nyssa Glass adventures).
These are steam-punky adventures, with Nyssa a formerly criminal child gone straight, but whose past can't let go of her. She wins through pluck, courage, and creativity (and of course, her mechanical skills).
HL Burke creates sympathetic characters, and moves the plots along handily.
"She tried to find comfort in prayer, but failed. It would've been easier had she been jailed for something she'd actually done. It wasn't as if there weren't enough crimes in her past to merit incarceration, pardoned or not, but to finally be free of that life and then dragged back in, based on the foolishness of others.....that was ridiculously unfair. Especially now that she had Ellis."
Favorite characters were Mr. Calloway and Mrs. H. They truly were an enhancement to the story, even though Calloway is only in the plot briefly, his loving memory lives on throughout.
Can't recommend this YA series enough, one of the best YA I've ever read and completely enjoyed :)
I won't talk about the plot too much because to speak of the later books will spoil the first, but they are electrifying stories. Each one adds to the world and the characters.
These novellas are full of heart, exciting action, inventive solutions, and an intriguing fantasy world based on steampunk technology. Burke delves into the themes of identity as her characters fight for their happiness in her unique world.
Each novella is a fast read, the exciting pace keeping the pages turning while she breathes her characters to life. Nyssa and Ellis are great protagonist. Each one of the five novellas are amazing. If you're a fan of fantasy and steampunk, you have to check out this series. It is well worth embroiling yourself in Burke's world.
