A huge colony of vampire bats becomes inexorably intertwined with the superstitions--and the future--of the Hopi Indians. One of the truly unclassifiable books, Nightwing transitions from grim and gruesome horror to poetical myths and legends. Unfortunately, the gravelly, broad tones of Richard Ferrone are unconvincing in the portrayal of Youngman, the Hopi who has tried so hard to recapture his heritage. The beauty of Native American spirituality as it contrasts with the horror of their lives should be reflected in a voice that ebbs and flows like the water that has been stolen from them. Ferrone doesn't give the book the vocal range it deserves. S.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 93]
