Eleanor Valentine was a psychic to the President of the United States, she feels something is wrong and writes some letters to be sent to different people in the future. She then attempts to assassinate the president, but fails, and this leads to the culling of all mentalists. These letters she sent, shape some peoples lives, these people she chose have some kind of special ability and are known as The Children of Nostradamus. These children are often sequestered away by the government or sent to live in the Outlands, a place that was devastated by a nuclear attach and is now radioactive. No normal person can survive there.

This book was.....good. I've been trying to gather my thoughts abut it for the last few days and all I can say really is that it's good. I think the sheer amount of different POV's and the way it jumped from person to person just made it too much. I found it hard to connect to the characters because, just as I was getting a feel for one, it would jump to another one and it all just felt to hectic and all over the place.

Now saying that, I did still enjoy the story. I think if it wasn't so all over the place, I would have loved it because it had the makings of a really good book. I loved the super powers element and loved seeing them in action, I liked the characters and wanted to get to know them a bit better. I loved the X-Men feel to it, and I enjoyed the overall plot. I just feel a little lost with the way it was all over the place, and I'm still unsure who the Paladins are!

In all, it was good and I did enjoy it, I just wish it wasn't so higgledy-piggledy. I will definitely continue with the series because the world is very intriguing and I'm needing to see what happens with the characters!!

Robin J Sitten was ok. She was clear and easy to listen to, I just thought that she didn't differentiate the characters enough and it made it more confusing. While listening, I often thought that it was on about one character when it wasn't.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

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.
