    One thought on “The Raptor & the Wren”

    1. Thanks to Saga Press and Netgalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review!I'm floored that a book that was mostly filler could be so much fun! I mean, fun isn't really the best word for it, because Miriam certainly isn't having fun. Losing people left and right, constantly surrounded by death and birds it's not the best life, but she deals with what she's got. This book tied up a loose end or four (and some of those we weren't even aware were ends that somehow got loose!) [...]

    2. First, I'd like to thank the author for a personalized advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.Second, I want everyone to know how difficult it was not to read this in one stretch. I restricted myself to about 30-50 pages each time I sat down to read because these books have a way of being over too quickly for me.And now, for a non-spoiler review:Miriam Black is not the same character we met in Blackbirds. Over the course of five books, she has evolved and it's been a real source of enter [...]

    3. "Fuck you, dude, you have no idea what we 'girls' can do. We wanna kill a man with a chainsaw, we kill a man with a chainsaw."I think this book may have ripped my heart out. Gahhhhhhhhh. The Miriam Black series gives you all the feelings - you laugh, you're creeped out, you're anxious, sad, excited,e etc. The Raptor & the Wren was so good, and I am thoroughly impressed with this entire series. Everything is connected, and the storytelling and characters are so fantastic. I am so damn excited [...]

    4. Five books in, and I'm so invested in Miriam's story that I never want this series to end! But alas, it will, and way too soon for my liking. Having said that, I'm also excited to check out Wendig's other books and I can't wait to see what he has in store for readers post-Miriam. If it's anything like this series I'm sure I will love itW, I've been writing super spoilery reviews recently, and I think that is probably scaring people off. It's going to be hard to really talk about this one without [...]

    5. I'd recommend re-reading the rest of the series before diving into this one if it's been a while. This is where everything starts to loop back on itself, and details (some of them pretty minor) from each of the previous four books all come back into play here. Granted, it's not strictly necessary--even though there were some bits that I didn't actually remember from previous books (very little of The Cormorant seems to have stuck with me), everything is given enough context here that I never fel [...]

    6. I think this series has gotten better with the introduction of more strange supernatual twists. It's not a happy story, major characters die often and sometimes twice. The humor keeps it from being too dire and makes the read enjoyable.

    7. This was my first experience with this book series, but not the first time I have read this author. Chuck Wendig fashions his verbiage addictively for the reader. This series has been called brutal and visceral, and Wendig’s Writing echoes this tone.The story was fascinating and I was able to delve in fairly easily, recognizing I will need to visit the other books in the series soon. Mystery is not always my go-to genre, but this was a fine example of one book that relies on suspense and grabb [...]

    8. I really liked this story and I definitely need to find the first 4 books in the Miriam Black series to read. I had a few instances where I would have made a connection quicker if I had read the previous books. Miriam is a good person who is trying to make amends and change her life's course. She is starting with Wren, a teen who is headed down a bad path because of her association with Miriam. Miriam can tell when and how a person will die by touching them. Her friends Louis and Gabby are there [...]

    9. Damn. This series keeps getting better and better. I'm not sure how I feel about that, knowing the next one is the finale, but I'll enjoy the ride while it lasts. Highly recommended, if you like intensity, action, horror and some very dark humor mixed in.

    10. Ooooohhh what a bucket full of dark goodness this book is! After a stretch of saccharine reads this book hit the spot with its twisted darkness.Mariam Black is the antithesis of a hero. She has special powersbut these powers are nothing like your typical super powers. Mariam has the ability to see how people will die just by touching them. You can imagine how such a dark power would effect a person. In previous books in this series, Mariam is a self destructive woman trying to find a way to get [...]

    11. SPOILERIFFIC REVIEW FOLLOWS. You know what? At least I didn't have to wait long for it, and by the time Vultures arrives I'll be pretty much over the disappointment, but this book is 90% filler. The 10% that's not filler is the methodical stripping away of every good thing Miriam has left. Which would be powerful if it didn't happen every book. And as the (bizarre, zombie ex machina) antagonist of this book demonstrated, nothing necessarily stays dead forever. So I'm down an Agent Grosky, a Loui [...]

    12. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet. My personal review of the book is as follows:In my personal opinion this book specifically is the beginning prequel to the heart of the(for lack of a better way of phrasing it) “nightmare” that makes up the series as a whole; This entire series feels to me personally as if it’s telling you the story of a person’s very dark, vivid, and complex nightmare.A lot of plot points felt like they were(in my personal opinion) really convenient [...]

    13. I don't think I've giving a Miriam Black book a less than 5 star review. And that's not because I'm super generous with stars. I honestly love these books.The Raptor & the Wren tore out my heart and stomped all over it, but I enjoyed every moment of it and can't wait for the final (NOOOO I'M NOT READY FOR THIS SERIES TO END) book. Miriam's life couldn't be much more of a s*show from start to finish, this installment just as much as any other. Trespasser has taken a backseat (BUT HAS IT REALL [...]

    14. Wow, this was a gut-puncher for sure. The story was as gritty and aggressive as any other in the series, though I have to say this one was had a very bleak ending. I found this to be the most engaging story, short as it was. Miriam continued to evolve and prove herself a fighter. There was also a lot more regarding the magic and the entities that follow Miriam around. There were frightening visits from old enemies and a looming threat that led to a shocking twist and a final page I didn't see co [...]

    15. I love books, especially fantasy sci-fi sorts with what should be unbelievable actions and premises that make you not only believe the journey but form an attachment to the characters. I don’t want to give away anything, for those that have not read this series or this the newest chapter I’d just like to say that you should. Read it now. Read it immediately. If you are drawn to an imperfect hero. If you enjoy seeing someone real even in a setting like this just read it. I am enthralled, and [...]

    16. Book five in Wendig's Miriam Black series dials up the shit storm that is her life, calling back a number of characters from past books in a swirling mass of death and discovery. The body count is high and the revelations are huge as Miriam exponentially expands on her 'abilities'. While I thought book four (Thunderbird) was the darkest of the series I was clearly wrong (at the time). This one is a gut punch that goes to some pretty nasty places, and the setup for book six (rumored to be the las [...]

    17. Okay this book deserves five stars cause Miriam is a badass and I love the shit out of her, but something happens in this book that broke my fucking heart so I need a minute to be mad so four stars it is. Miriam is back and so are a few other characters that have wandered through her universe. This books ties all that in really well, but I’m still mad! Chuck, you are a brilliant asshole!

    18. When I completed this book, I called Wendig a colorful assortment of nasty names. How dare he do what he did? I want to kick him, but only after he finishes the sixth book in the series. 2019? Bah. This is a seriously messed-up story and that's saying something given Miriam Black's seriously fucked-up existence.

    19. Thanks Chuck just rip out my heart and stamp all over it! Are you freaking kidding me!! This book got me out of a slump and that ending just put me back in one gah!!! I can’t deal. 😥 so if you could just write the last book quicker that would be great.

    20. *gestures rudely at Chuurk*I loved it and seriously had to hold back and not read it all in one sitting as I usually do with his books, because they suck me right in and I can't help myself.Now I'm done and don't know what to do with my life. Thanks a lot, Chuurk.

    21. DarkThis series has always been dark. Usually there's a little more humor. Still great. If dad recommend this book. There was legit ugly crying involved while reading.
