"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.

Where Shadows Fall has a lot more emotional moments than A Whisper in the Shadows. Specifically, readers are going to feel the pain at the deaths of several characters they may have come to love. Along with some familiar names, there are also some new, very well developed characters, such as the magician-in-training Sainsha, the wise and just Kind Thaed, the Lord of Lions Ramura, and the power-hungry Grimred. As with the first novel, there is no shortage of action to keep the reader engaged. There are some important themes presented, such as justice, karma, living in the present, and trusting in oneself. The ‘good vs. evil’ story line is presented in a way that it’s not clichéd or presented as a fairy tale. The characters and the storyline are original and refreshing.
Again, the ending contains a dramatic showdown, and something else that will disturb you (and make you look forward to the rest of the series). Normally, I don’t go for cliffhanger endings, but Mr. Fallwell knows how to pull it off in a way that doesn’t leave you unsatisfied or cheated.
Compared to the first book, there are noticeably more editorial errors (mostly in punctuation). However, these are not a major distraction and do not detract from the enjoyment of the book. I am looking forward to the third in the series. Well done, Mr. Fallwell.
Where Shadows Fall continues after the devastation in Book I. However, the great protectors of Hir (Rangers of Laerean) didn’t anticipate the repercussions wrought from past decisions or the corruption and betrayal that roiled beneath the surface of fallacious comradery and brotherhood. Once revered as men and women of integrity, the Rangers must defend themselves against the denizens they swore and oath to protect.
With some nice action sequences, a few surprising deaths, and new allies, Where Shadows Fall was a quick and engaging read. There weren’t many plot twists, but the storyline doesn’t need them. There was plenty of magic, new species, and dragons to keep any fantasy lover satisfied. I would have liked to have seen a few things: more problems solved by the characters rather than by the magic, a strategic and intelligent antagonist remaining that way, and a little more consistency with one main character. Those are not gripes, just observations from one reader.
If you love fantasy filled with magic, new species, battles, and dragons, you’ll enjoy this series. I’ve already purchased book III! (Grom Nar! You’ll understand once you read it).
