"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.

What if you were told you could live and work at a Complex for one-hundred thousand Seldova coin enough to start a new life anywhere in the world would you be able to do it for two and a half years? How about living in a city with humans and Meta humans that are just coming down from a horrific ten-year war would it be worth it? Some may consider it their lucky day others know its just an experiment with another war waiting to happen.
Morrigan a disposed Valkyrie kicked out of Valhalla by Odin himself is about to find out. Morrigan is no longer a full Valkyrie after she disobeyed a direct order from Odin he stripped her of her wings and her powers and made her semi-human. She now has to live among mortals and act like one of them. She does still retain some spotty remnants of her powers but nothing she can count on in a pinch. When her sight of the future shows her an assassination attempt she goes to the authorities hoping they may be able to stop it. When she is subdued and taken as a prisoner she responds, as a true Valkyrie would even with her reduced powers.
Luke Cadell is a human with cybernetic parts, borderline more machine than man. During the war he was known as The Butcher of P-Extinction and never left any survivors. Now he’s the maintenance guy at the Complex where if knowledge of who he really is got out he would be dead in days.
Luke and Morrigan see each other briefly and have a flare of recognition and then its gone. When Luke is ordered to guard and possible kill the kidnapped captive he is undecided if he wants to follow that order. Once he recognizes Morrigan from their chance meeting he is torn by his sudden desire to be with her as well as the need for some answers.
They are both taken aback and intrigued by the intense physical connection they shared. They both have secrets, will finally getting answers help them out of their sudden death predicament or will the answers give them a fighting chance from a no win situation?
I liked the technical aspects of the story. The characters were both very strong and ready to take on everyone even thou they knew they would not survive. It had some cute moments, insane we are about to die moments, some steamy bits, and some over the top bad guys, however both characters had a certain reserve about them that made it a bit hard to warm to them completely it was still a good read.
