Blackbirds By: Chuck Wendig

Plot:

She’s foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, and suicides. But when Miriam hitches a ride with Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that in thirty days Louis will be murdered while he calls her name. 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.

Review:

So this book is fairly dark. A few times I wondered what I was doing reading it since I don’t normally like anything this dark. However I stuck it out and it paid off.

The ending was good, made me immediately want to buy the next book in the series. The characters were very well developed, and the plot was complicated enough that I wasn’t able to guess what was going to happen.

Ending wise if he’d gone in a darker direction, like I was afraid he was going to do, I probably would have hated the book. Just to be clear the ending was not rainbows and unicorns, it was still morbid.

4/5
