The only talent twenty-six-year-old 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.

Familiar themes and characters produce strong book

If you are a fan of the X-Men comics then a lot of the themes and characters will seem very familiar at first, evoking memories of characters and storylines like the shadow king and days of future past.

However, this book is more than it's starting point with a strong cast and a compelling storyline with good pacing that doesn't flag despite having a fairly large cast with a varied array of powers to introduce and at the same time nicely setting up the sequel too.

I am not familiar with this narrator, but thought her performance was very strong and the story was nicely enhanced by her narration.

I will definitely be looking out for the next book in the series when I get a chance.

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 more 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.
