From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–This deeply layered and complex tale incorporates such elements as reincarnation and extraterrestrials to construct an intricate yet exciting story. Carter Hall, an archaeologist, is Hawkman, and after finding a mysterious alien metal (that also grants him his superhero abilities), he is reincarnated from one life to the next, fighting crime all the while. Hall is not alone in his journey–his true love, Kendra Saunders (aka Hawkgirl)–is also reincarnated from life to life, though in these installments, she has no recollection of her past memories or of Carter. Throughout this volume, Hall and Saunders fight one of the scariest villains ever: the Headhunter, a sinister creature who severs his victims' heads to steal their memories. This is a dark tale, exploring the meaning of life and death and of good and evil. The superhero tale is fused with a love story, and should appeal to both male and female comics fans. The images are in lush full color and smartly juxtaposed with the text, creating a seamless production. While the plot gives way to violence, it is traditional comic-book violence and not overly explicit. This third volume in the series will delight loyal fans, but it also serves well as an independent work. An excellent addition to any public library.–Jennifer Feigelman, Plattekill Public Library, Modena, NY

From Publishers Weekly:

A costumed hero's identity crisis fuels the latest adventures of one of DC's less appreciated Golden Age characters. Hawkman has sometimes been presented as a reincarnated Egyptian prince, now living as crime fighting archeologist Carter Hall. At other times, he has been identified as Katar Hol, an alien policeman patrolling Earth while posing as a native. Johns's script makes the most of this uncertainty. In one episode, the alien policewoman called Hawkwoman comes looking for her lover; in another, the confused young woman who is the latest incarnation of Hawkgirl tests the limits of her relationship with him. "Carter Hall," meanwhile, wonders who he really is and whether he can stop obsessing about his past incarnations by collecting gravestone rubbings from cemeteries around the world. The psychological probing is a lot less important than the accompanying physical combat, as Hawkman and his partners soar above the city while battling super-powered villains. A platoon of DC artists does a superb job with the action scenes, and even when the plot is spinning its wheels, it's hard not to enjoy a book this visually exciting. (June)
