    This widespread and familiar bird may hunt by day or night, catching flying insects in the air. Its bounding, erratic flight and angular wings make it unmistakable except in the southwest and in Florida, where two other types of nighthawks occur. Originally nesting on open ground, Common Nighthawks have learned to nest on flat gravel roofs; their nasal cries and "booming" display dives may be. In Hewitt’s superb, darkly charming debut, Londoner Alice Wyndham receives a mysterious gift and discovers that she is an exceedingly rare aviarist who can see each person’s invisible nightjar.

Alice Wyndham has been plagued by visions of birds her whole life, and.

    The Nightjar's Promise Book Review & Book Tour Giveaway AM Book Reviews, Book Tours, Features, Giveaways, Mystery, Readers, Young Adult Books I love mysteries and novels with supernatural themes--and I loved Barbara Casey's F.I.G. Mysteries.   The nightjars called to mind the dæmons of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, who were a manifestation of one’s inner self in animal form, though nightjars lack a dæmon’s ability to speak and reason. From this familiar beginning, Hewitt builds a fascinating, unexpected magical system and mythology, in a story that is both.
