About the Author

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 X-Men 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 at 1407 Graymalkin Lane.

By middle school I was devouring fantasy and science fiction faster than I could check them out of the library. However, my first love remained comic books. I began writing my own comics with my best friend, and by the end of my eighth grade year, I had written over a hundred issues of the superhero series that would eventually become Children of Nostradamus. Meanwhile, I spent my Tuesday's at the grocery store, rummaging the racks, reading any comic put on the shelf.

Working as a high school teacher provided me with an uncanny amount of great dialogue. The antics of teenagers in a suburban setting became the background of my first published book, Suburban Zombie High. Having started working at a second suburban school, the sequel, Suburban Zombie High: The Reunion was published.

I became known as a geek before it was a trend. During college Jeremy would be shortened to Remy as friends discovered my goal of reading every X-Men comic. Being able to explain the many relationships of Scott Summers and his multi-dimensional children became a badge of honor.

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. I also belong the New England Horror Writer's Association where I'm known as the sarcastic zombie author. I also partake in a weekly writing group called the Metrowest Writers where people are flabbergasted by my love of comics and scifi.

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 more of this series.

Finally, a tightly woven and highly intelligent dystopian story that breaks conventions in the genre. The characters are well thought out and the plot keeps you thinking throughout all the action and backstory. I'm really looking forward to how this series of books plays out. If you are fans of series like Divergent and Hunger Games, this one will surely elevate you to the next level.

It is rare to find authors with characters as diverse as Jeremy Flagg. Truly, these characters set him apart and allow every reader to feel as if they as they could one of his love-able underdogs. His ability to write both a story with action and drama as well as moments of laughter and heart keep me coming back for more. Nighthawks serves as a worthy stepping stone to what I know will become an incredible series worth remembering.

When I read comic books regularly, I gravitated toward the darker, grimmer visions: Watchmen, Dark Knight, Sandman. This book really reminds me of a text version of that genre. I really enjoyed it and hope that the books in this series will be many, and frequent.

I only kind of enjoyed reading comics as a kid. I always wanted more 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 more 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).

Once I started this book, I was incapable of putting it down. This morning I even woke up with the book in my hands having read it until the last ounce of my strength remained. That sensation made me feel like one of the nighthawks feeling the euphoria of using my powers to the point of being consumed. The characters are all well thought out and have deeply developed backstories. You can connect easily with them and feel the emotions and struggles that they deal with. The book was action-packed and was a fast-paced read. Jeremy Flagg takes the time to set mood and emotion in his book and it pays off greatly. If you love superheros or dystopian fiction, this book is for you. The thing that makes me the happiest about this book, is that it is the first in a series, so I know there are more to come!

This book was released my second day on my new job... I was busted reading it during orientation by the HR manager. I explained how addictive the book was and explained the plot so far and got judge mental look that sent fear down my spine like only someone in HR can execute. She told me she would read this book and decide my future in the company based on how honest I was about the "good-ness" of the book. I was fairly confident of my job security because I do have excellent taste.

Today it was confirmed- I have kept my job and she also thoroughly enjoyed this book! *

*mostly true story!

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 more 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!
