What did you love best about Nighthawks?

When I was given this book to review I was worried it would be a knock off of X-Men because the whole super-powered/mutant thing, but it turned out that I had nothing to worry about. For starters, this story takes place in a dystopia, there's not a special school for our heroes, they don't have cheesy super hero names, and nobody is wearing spandex. I also enjoyed the few jokes in reference to the X-Men that the author scattered throughout the story.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Nighthawks?

The opening scene was the most memorable to me, and it did a wonderful job setting up the rest of the book.


Which character – as performed by Robin J Sitten – was your favorite?

Robin J Sitten did a straight read of the story so none of the characters stood out from each other based on her performance. What made the characters stand apart was the author's writing. That being said, my favorite character was Alyssa.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wouldn't qualify any the reactions I had to this book as extreme, but I sure did laugh a lot.


Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of the audio book in return for an honest review.

Dystopian x men

I enjoyed the story which was well written and imagined. Its about an x man style society but post apocalypse. A young artist discovers his powers and is hunted by the government and police/police cyborgs in the outlands which is what is left of the post nuclear cities. He meets a group of other "powered" and they try to overthrow the government while figuring out clues from a powered pre-cognitive left in notes 30 years prior. My only problem was the narrators execution. Her voice is pleasant enough however her range is lacking. I couldn't tell one character from another and it did impact the enjoyment of the story significantly. Otherwise it was good, not sure I would listen to the next one on account of the narration but the story was excellent. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
