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

This book is written from several points of view. The author uses this perspective to let you see inside the heads of all the characters that help drive this story. I think it was a good choice. Especially when the first character is introduced. Speaking of which, I thought his character should have been shrouded in a little more malevolence considering what he is and does.
The main character is Mason Cross. I liked him immediately. He comes over as observant, humble, smart and powerful. Everyone seems to have their own agenda among the necromancers. I felt like Mason was swimming among sharks. It will be interesting to read how this saga unfolds. I also like that the writer takes risks. You don't know who will be left standing by the end of the book. I found myself shouting aloud with outrage at one point near the end. I'm still upset....
All in all...a good read.
The story keeps you interested with varying points of view and interweaves Mason's story with that of Joan, the policeman Clayton, the disturbed necromancer Kyle, and Eli's mentee Liana, bringing everything all together for an ending that leaves you wanting more. I look forward to the third book.
This was an enjoyable read. Mason's character is a likable, introverted character who, in most ways, really just wants to be left alone. I enjoyed the progression of Mason's character. He was easygoing in the beginning, but as the book went on he revealed the darker parts of his character. Unlike a lot of essentially good-natured main characters, I felt like Mason was not one to shy away from the reality that sometimes you have to embrace all aspects of yourself, not just the good bits.
I enjoyed the dark elements to this story and the way the main antagonist was portrayed. He was appropriately creepy and added a good bit of intrigue to the story.
I would have liked to see more details about necromancy and the ins and outs of how it worked in this world. However, I didn't realize this was book two when I requested it, so it could be that book one offered all of that information! I'll probably be checking out book one to better understand the backstory.
Overall I liked the story and the characters.
