[Jeremy Flagg] á Nighthawks (Children of Nostradamus, #1) [humor PDF] Read Online à 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 quicker In 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 learn about the other groups in future books and yes there will definitely be in 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.

The advisor to the president has powers of precognition She isn t the only one, but she is the most powerful When a vision shows her a dark world to come, she writes letters for the principal parties and heroically but fruitlessly attempts to stop what s coming.
The story begins with massive time jumps and action skips between the chapters and it isn t until almost 30% through that the reader is given a cohesive overview of the plot It turns out there are people who have evolved special powers The powers are as varied as the people Telekinesis, pyrotechnics, super strength, etc.
, a la X Men The government wants to eradicate these people They start with attempted genocide and, when that doesn t do the trick, they proceed to create enhanced soldiers to round up and exterminate any known Children of Nostradamus.
They fight back.
This is the beginning of a series so we get world building and a slow introduction to the characters and their plight It s full of action and slow reveals An interesting spin on the X Men trope Review ARC graciously provided by the publisher via NetGalley The advisor to the president has powers of precognition She isn t the only one, but she is the most powerful When a vision shows her a dark world to come, she writes letters for the principal parties and heroically but fruitlessly attempts to stop what s coming.

0The book Nighthawks Children of Nostradamus 1 by Jeremy Flagg is a solid story about superheroes The story takes us in a dystopian world where due to changes in the sun appear people who have superpowers The government at all costs is trying to put all those who have new superpowers under their control But because of their behavior, a terrorist group attacked the US and activating the nuclear head Parts of America are contaminated and government all that which are out of the law sent to this apocalyptic wasteland The government does not give up on controlling all individuals who have any power and places them in a special constituency Facility The young painter Conthan is just setting up an exhibition of paintings drawing his friend who was sent by the government to the constituency Facility The same exhibition is criticized by the public because ordinary people do not like new superheroes and soon there is a mess with the protesters Conthan barely pulls out the living head after escalating the conflict with the protesters The government sent special units to the Pretorian to contain the mess, and when one of the Pretorians tried to kill Conthan, his power was activated and he killed him At that point, he becomes a target of government and he must flee He moves toward devastated cities to avoid being arrested The book is fun and if you love superheroes, robots, and cyborgs then you will love the book I d recommend to the lovers of science fiction and the post apocalypse.
Wow This 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 My original Nighthawks audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.
Eleanor Valentine is a powerful psychic able to predict the near future with astounding accuracy As an advisor to the president, she has used her powers to help steer the workings of government to positive outcomes She discovers that a horrible darkness looms for the world, the only solution is to assassinate the president, but fails in her attempt and is killed in the process.
Now forty years in the future, the world is playing out the way Eleanor predicted The children of Nostradamus, people with extraordinary abilities, are being rounded up or murdered outright as dangers to society Their only refuge is the radioactive wasteland of northern New England A small band of super humans, having received 40 year old letters from Eleanor, finds their only hope of survival is to strike at the heart of the secret government organization trying to exterminate them.
There are many similarities to X Men and the author even alludes to this humorously The characters are different in that they must discover their abilities on their own, or hopefully with help from their peers Most would just rather get along, integrating with society, but are not given that option as they are rounded up, or shot out of hand There are many interesting dynamics that make the characters human than mutant.
It is an entertaining story with an engaging plot There is plenty of supernatural action to satisfy most lovers of the genre They aren t invincible or supermen, just people with extraordinary skills they can barely control at times.
Robin J Sitten performs the story well She has a pleasant voice and a matter of fact tone that gets out of the way Audiobook listeners might be accustomed to the many actors who perform books dramatically Sitten is about reading the story transparently, letting the listener imagine the action and drama in their own minds It is a personal taste, but she is highly competent and easy to listen to.
Nighthawks is an entertaining story with imaginative characters and plenty of supernatural action It is the first in a series of unknown length, wrapping up well, but giving us the groundwork for future sequels If you enjoy this book, you will be looking forward to future novels.
Audiobook was provided for review by the author.
This jacked up version of X men is a wild ride It begins with a woman who can see the future and a plan that unravels from page to page No one knows where it s going, not the characters and not the reader, and it keeps you guessing until the very end The world is half in ruins Deviants to the normal course of humanity have emerged, as Nostradamus had once predicted, and they are targeted The government strains to keep them in check and the ever present question is should they New England is nothing than a scorched remnant left behind from nuclear explosions the radiation present would poison any normal human Outlanders are banished here, doomed to live shortened life spans And the Children, those who show abilities beyond what is considered human, those who have run from authority and containment Facilities, sequester in the ruins as well Firstly, I have to say, I was immediately drawn in by the author s descriptive telling of the super human powers his characters possess He didn t just tell us someone was a telepath, he showed us in a descriptive, suck you in kind of way While reading, I could feel the pull of thoughts and sense the power that surged through the Children of Nostradamus In this way, this book stood out for me from the superheroes I had read about and seen in neon spandex suits in the past It was refreshing and engaging and kept me invested and involved as the story unfolded The characters are diverse and are pulled together through the course of the novel I loved the evolution of the Nighthawks and can t wait to see where this author goes with them next Definitely check this out 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 X Men only much in 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.
I only kind of enjoyed reading comics as a kid I always wanted from the characters and the storyline things I got in novels that took a long and expensive time to receive through comics Jeremy Flagg has given me exactly what I want comic book superheroes who are people I can get to know and develop a relationship without needing to read decades of backstory that may or may not be current with today s version.
Nighthawks, while lacking the characteristic POW and BANG found in comics, has enough action to keep a reader s attention during and between battles This book is just as fast paced as the comics which influenced Flagg s work, with brief but effective interludes to develop the characters and immense backstory which spans 4 decades It combines the ever popular dystopian world with superheroes who aren t really all that different from us on the inside I also appreciate the nuances within the story Although Conthan is the main character, you can easily see that this is true only on the surface Conthan is the Point of View character who allows us the reader to enter Flagg s world rather than simply be an outsider looking in on all of these beings we can t connect with The main characters at least as I see this story are women one long dead, one powerful and beautiful This is what I appreciated most about Nighthawks the female characters get just as much screen time as the males, and are equal or stronger in power Flagg doesn t discriminate and tactfully includes a variety of diversity.
Upon coming to the end, you know that there s to come, even if the words Volume 1 weren t on the cover I look forward to the sequels and inevitable prequels which will come from having the story REALLY begin 40 years in the past.
I was offered an advance copy in exchange for an honest review, and was excited to read Jeremy Flagg s new novel It s a dystopian science fiction and I found the story compelling and intriguing, but also complex and intense, like many in the genre You need to keep your wits about you with this book, as it s fast paced and the characters are varied, but it s well worth a read Looking forward to of this series.
