Description

Miriam Black knows when you will die. Still in her early twenties, she's foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, suicides, and slow deaths by cancer. But when Miriam hitches a ride with truck driver Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that in thirty days Louis will be gruesomely murdered while he calls her name. Miriam has given up trying to save people; that only makes their deaths happen. But Louis will die because he met her, and she will be the next victim. No matter what she does she can't save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she'll have to try. File Under: Urban Fantasy [ Touch Of Death | The Future Is Written | Free Way | Surviving ]show more

Review quote

"Trailer-park tension, horrified hilarity, and sheer terror mixed with deft characterization and razor plotting. I literally could not put it down." - Lilith Saintcrow, author of Night Shift and Working for the Devil "Blackbirds is a horror story, a traveling story, a story of loss and what it takes to make things right. It's a story about fate and how sometimes, if we wrestle with it hard enough, maybe we can change it. Blackbirds is the kind of book that doesn't let go even after you've put it down and nobody else could have made it shine like Chuck Wendig." - Stephen Blackmoore, author, City of the Lost and Dead Things "Mean, moody and mysterious, Blackbirds is a noir joyride peppered with black humour, wry observation, and visceral action. Fans of Chuck Wendig will not be disappointed." - Adam Christopher, author of Empire State... Blackbirds is "one *dark* book. Think Six Feet Under co-written by Stephen King and Chuck Palaniuk... Wendig's surefooted prose means that this ride is well worth sticking your thumb out for." 4 **** SFX Magazineshow more
