The Raptor & the Wren (Miriam Black #5) Reviews

    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 rig...

    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...

    Following the death of her Mother, Miriam is squatting in her home in Florida liberating the recently deceased of their now useless medication. All this changes when a figure from her past arrives on her doorstep with some unsettling news ? Miriam?s become somewhat of an obsession ...

    "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 anxi...

    Miriam heads north from Florida to her old stomping grounds to find out why someone is killing people in the same ways she did (to save lives), leaving behind the people about whom she cares the most: Louis and Gabby, but accompanied by her FBI agent buddy. Readers get a high octane do...

    Holy. Shit. Review to come once I process what I've just read. ...

    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...

    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 strictl...

    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. ...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO! OMG. The ending of this book has left me with tears in my eyes, goosebumps on my arms, and a hammering heart. As if Miriam hasn?t gone through enough, now she loses Louis??? Damn. And the next book isn?t due for release until January 2019. Double damn. ...

    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 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 ...

    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. ...

    I have to confess difficulty at reading Chuck Wendig's work with an objective eye. Simply put, I'm a rabid fan of all his work and a devotee of his amazing blog "Terribleminds" From a purely technical standpoint, "The Raptor and the Wren" is a terrific book. The mechanics are rock s...

    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 powers...but these powers are nothing like your typical super powers. Mariam has...

    I can't state often enough how much I love Miriam Black. She is a classical anti-hero, a broken woman with a pottymouth and terrible habits, and a power that lets her find out how someone dies with a touch. So why did The Raptor & the Wren not get 5 stars from me? It's too shor...

    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 Miri...

    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...

    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 fi...

    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...

    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 cha...

    Don't pick this up if you anything critically important to tend to for the day. Expect to be thrown down the waterslide with no hope of climbing out until you crash at the bottom. And, whatever you do, do not start this book unless you have read the first four Miriam Black books or you...

    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'. Whi...

    Chuck Wendig's candid take on insomnia. "Other times it's like, hey brain, hello brain, what the fuck brain, no, no, sure, let's lie here and just think and think and think about things like hey let's go over every mistake and every moment of trauma and terror and let's wad them togeth...

    Chuck Wendig always comes through with Miriam Black. Was in a bit of a reading funk, but I read this in a couple of days over the holiday. She is one messed up cookie, but I will miss her when she is gone. Of course, I prefer my enjoyment of Miriam from afar, don't want to get too clos...

    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 strictl...

    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. ...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO! OMG. The ending of this book has left me with tears in my eyes, goosebumps on my arms, and a hammering heart. As if Miriam hasn?t gone through enough, now she loses Louis??? Damn. And the next book isn?t due for release until January 2019. Double damn. ...

    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 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 ...

    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. ...

    I have to confess difficulty at reading Chuck Wendig's work with an objective eye. Simply put, I'm a rabid fan of all his work and a devotee of his amazing blog "Terribleminds" From a purely technical standpoint, "The Raptor and the Wren" is a terrific book. The mechanics are rock s...

    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 powers...but these powers are nothing like your typical super powers. Mariam has...

    I can't state often enough how much I love Miriam Black. She is a classical anti-hero, a broken woman with a pottymouth and terrible habits, and a power that lets her find out how someone dies with a touch. So why did The Raptor & the Wren not get 5 stars from me? It's too shor...

    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 Miri...

    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 fi...

    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...

    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 cha...

    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 rig...

    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...

    Following the death of her Mother, Miriam is squatting in her home in Florida liberating the recently deceased of their now useless medication. All this changes when a figure from her past arrives on her doorstep with some unsettling news ? Miriam?s become somewhat of an obsession ...

    "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 anxi...

    Miriam heads north from Florida to her old stomping grounds to find out why someone is killing people in the same ways she did (to save lives), leaving behind the people about whom she cares the most: Louis and Gabby, but accompanied by her FBI agent buddy. Readers get a high octane do...

    Holy. Shit. Review to come once I process what I've just read. ...

    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...

    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 strictl...

    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. ...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO! OMG. The ending of this book has left me with tears in my eyes, goosebumps on my arms, and a hammering heart. As if Miriam hasn?t gone through enough, now she loses Louis??? Damn. And the next book isn?t due for release until January 2019. Double damn. ...

    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 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 ...

    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. ...

    I have to confess difficulty at reading Chuck Wendig's work with an objective eye. Simply put, I'm a rabid fan of all his work and a devotee of his amazing blog "Terribleminds" From a purely technical standpoint, "The Raptor and the Wren" is a terrific book. The mechanics are rock s...

    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 rig...

    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...

    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 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 ...

    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. ...

    I have to confess difficulty at reading Chuck Wendig's work with an objective eye. Simply put, I'm a rabid fan of all his work and a devotee of his amazing blog "Terribleminds" From a purely technical standpoint, "The Raptor and the Wren" is a terrific book. The mechanics are rock s...

    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 powers...but these powers are nothing like your typical super powers. Mariam has...

    I can't state often enough how much I love Miriam Black. She is a classical anti-hero, a broken woman with a pottymouth and terrible habits, and a power that lets her find out how someone dies with a touch. So why did The Raptor & the Wren not get 5 stars from me? It's too shor...

    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...

    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. ...
