Well, I finished my second book of the week. "Ladyhawke", by Joan D. Vinge. Yeah, it's the novelization of that classic 80s adventure movie about a man and woman who are cursed by an evil bishop.

He's a wolf by night. She's a hawk by day, so they can never be together as man and woman. Awesome movie/5. The first book in this series is simply called “Hawke”. It appears like the author was trying to depict a character in the mould of James Bond when he was writing this novel.

Alexander Hawke is an ex-military man with good looks and he is also a pilot.Robert James Lee ‘Bob’ Hawke was born on 9 December at Bordertown in Southern Australia, to congregational minister, Arthur Hawke, and his wife, Edith, who was a schoolteacher.

He had an older brother, Neil, who died at the age of 17 due to meningitis.This is the 10th Lord Alexander Hawke book Ive read and the last. I cant even believe I finished this one. I went into this book with my eyes wide open. I knew Bells series is over-the-top, both in his characters and style, with a lite comic book tone.

Yet I often found myself laughing out loud at Hawkes cavalier attitude and dramatic dialogue/5.
