Hayashi's Hero

Dawn Endeavor 2

Morgan and Kisho's story is action-packed, dynamic story that somehow still manages to be both tender and romantic at the same time. Harte does an amazing job of weaving Kisho's insecurities about love, his homosexuality, and his feelings of belonging with the team into the greater story. I found it refreshing that Kisho and Morgan are both very much male, with their homosexuality being a matter-of-fact thing without reverting to cliched stereotypes and tropes to make the story move along. It didn't seem strange or out of place that Kisho's sexuality would be different from that of his teammates and I thought that was very well-rendered, especially with Kisho's perception of his teammates' responses and how he was surprised by them.

Asides from the romance, the overall story arc progresses in an interesting direction in this installment and there are certain things revealed that are intriguing and I hope to see more of. Morgan's family and perhaps some more light being shed on his particular abilities would be great. The Circ storyline is moving at a good clip and I can't wait for the next story.

Genetic manipulation has created the first super soldier, the Circ. Able to transform into hulking, inhuman beasts at will, the second generation of Circs, under Project Dawn Endeavor, is much more dangerous than the first. Psychically gifted, the secret four-man team who once worked for the U.S. Navy now belongs to the mysterious Mrs. Sharpe. Bent on cleaning up science gone wrong around the globe, Mrs. Sharpe sends the men of Dawn Endeavor out on behalf of the United States government. But there’s more to her agenda than patriotism. If only the team knew what she really had planned.
 
Kisho Hayashi lives in two worlds. Reality as he knows it is a team of men closer than brothers, Circs he would die for, Circs he would kill for. But in dreams and waking wisps of potential tomorrows, Hayashi is haunted by a single male face that confuses and worries him. He’s a trained weapon, comfortable in the beast that lives within his soul. But for a man who sees snatches of the future, he should know better than to think he can outrun his own destiny.
