New England is a walled off radioactive prison People exhibiting extraordinary abilities are hunted for experiments The only talent twentysixyearold Conthan has in life is his art and knack for sarcasm When a cop threatens his life, Conthan discovers he has the ability to teleport Hunted by the military and a woman with her own gifts, Conthan finds exiles in the Boston wastelands with powers of their own For the first time, he sees potential to become a hero But as he unravels a conspiracy threatening the world, he must decide between his survival and his humanity I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.I loved this book! It's a bit like XMen only muchin depth After an event that caused these differences to become widespread and well known, the government locks up the people who develop changes Alternatively, they can be exiled to New England, which is a scorched out ruin Conthan discovers that he is a child of Nostradamus, somebody who has an ability deviant from the norm, after a cop threatens his life I loved Conthan I thought he was really interesting and it was so cool to see his character develop over the book.I really liked this book I found it interesting and it drew me in, until I didn't want to stop listening The author also has this incredible talent at descriptive text Instead of just telling you one of the Children of Nostradamus's abilities, he explains it and it's absolutely wonderful reading. Nighthawks (Children of Nostradamus Book 1) by Jeremy Flagg, narrated by Robin J Sitten, is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary This book I fell in love with! There was an event that caused some kids to be different, special gifts, but the government doesn't consider them gifts but a danger and They lock these kids up or send these people out to the zone to live on their own, the zone that is radiated Sometimes these gifts develop late in life, in a moment of crisis This is just such an action packed, secret filled, fun, Xmen type story that I loved it There is one called Angel because she has wings There is one that can transport There are secrets going on too, in the research facility So much great intrigue, adventure, suspense, and fantasy! LOVED it! The narration was perfect too! Great job all around. Review copyNighthawks: Children of Nostradamus Book 1 is a complex and fascinating read.Eleanor Valentine is a psychic to the first woman president, Cecelia Joyce, but when she attempts to assassinate her boss it leads to her death and to The Culling of all mentalists.The mentalists are not the only ones with powers beyond those of mortal men There are The Children of Nostradamus Where the Children of Nostradamus have hundreds of recorded abilities, there are certain things we all have in common We have a natural immunity to all illnesses We have higher endurance, we heal quickerIn addition to the Children of Nostradamus, some of the other players in the story include the Outlanders and the Paladins And for me this is where it got to be a bit much I get the feeling we'll learnabout the other groups in future books and yes there will definitely bein the series.In the meantime, book one is a superhero story with a bit of humor and better than you might expect In many ways it has feel of a graphic novel without the artwork and the way they got the name Nighthawks was inspired.Although I wasn't blown away by book one I certainly will return to the world of the Nighthawks and can recommend you check this one out, as well.From Limitless Publishing, Nighthawks is available in both paperback and ebook formats If you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited you can read it at no additional charge Also, if you are anPrime member you can read it for FREE using the Kindle Owners Lending Library.From the authors bio It started with single comic book My mother was determined to make a reader out of me Shunning traditional literature at a young age, my mother placed XMen Classic #69 in my lap and for the first time I was exposed to the phrases, Mutants, BAMF, and SNIKT From that moment on, I imagined my enrollment at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.I came to writing late in my professional career For a short period I majored in Creative Writing but eventually turned to Graphic Design for my career It wasn't until 2006 that I participated in my first NaNoWriMo writing an epic science fiction novel Later I would use the opportunity to write Suburban Zombie High and my first draft of Children of Nostradamus Now I am the NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison to the Massachusetts Metrowest Region I also belong the New England Horror Writer's Association where I'm known as the sarcastic zombie author. Wow! This is a story of how mutant humans with powers come to interrelate by the hand of another woman with the ability to foresee the future to create a rebellion and the transition of their lives to be able to live with their powers, sometimes a curse, and how they defend themselves from the persecution of the government Great story line and in depth of the characters! The author’s linguistic richness and his ingenious world created from scratch compile a novel which promises intense suspense and plot twists I loved every minute of it A series worth following.
