    Genius. The word connotes an almost unworldly power: the power to create, to grasp universal secrets, even to destroy. As renowned intellectual historian Darrin McMahon explains in Divine Fury, the concept of genius can be traced back to antiquity, when men of great insight were thought to be advised by demons. The modern idea of genius emerged in tension with a growing belief in human equality; contesting the notion that all are created equal, geniuses served to dramatize the exception of extraordinary individuals not governed by ordinary laws.

    This book chronologically follows the evolution of the genius and its influence on individuals and civilization. It's beautifully researched, expertly read, and totally seductive. For those who love the power behind myth and real magic that is inherent in our creative evolution, this is a perfect book. As someone who has loved and followed this subject for many years, this book is uncovering a true mystery.

    Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station---and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success.

    Overall

    What goes better together than a great author and great reader. Carrie Vaughn is smart as hell or she could not possibly add more to the sci-fi/horror genre. I was a big fan of Buffy and grew up on Anne Rice...so I was a little skeptical of a protagonist werewolf. Carrie kicks open the door to this subterranean genre with wit and insight that make her characters believable. Kudos to her.
