Dark and disturbing but utterly brilliant.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blackbirds (A Miriam Black novel Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Well that was brutal! I like dark and gritty, but in Blackbirds the dark will chill your soul and the grit grind your eyes out. I really shouldn't have liked Miriam, but I did. She's not the sort of person anyone would want to turn their back on, else she'd empty your pockets and rip you a new one with her razor tongue. In fact - in the real world - Louis is the only really decent person in the whole book.
There is no let up in the tale, no respite to catch your breath. Every page takes you to places you really wouldn't want to go, but part of you wants to visit just to see whats there.
A solid 5 stars for me, and already waiting for Mockigbird at the end of August.
