When a $5 ebook makes you crave well-rounded and believable characters like Han Solo and Flash Gordon, you begin to suspect that you have been had. The characters in Spacehawks are so 2 dimensional it is flattering to call them cardboard, as cardboard has palpable depth. The plot is so cheezy that you suspect it has been written by a computer program, using the keywords "supermen" "brotherhood" "assassin" "kidnapping" "rescue" and "token strong female". They write Harlequin romances that way, don't they? If you have read the book "Hawke" by Ted Bell, then you know about larger-than-life characters with mind-blowing martial arts abilities, who cannot be hurt and for whom everything turns out in their favour. I should have taken my cue from the similarity in the names of the books and saved myself some valuable reading time.
