Reviews Thunderbird (Miriam Black, #4)

  • Mogsy (MMOGC)
    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Wendig is one of my favorite authors, and to date I must have read more than a dozen of his books. But whenever someone asks what I think is his best work, my mind always comes back to Miriam Black.Oh Miriam, Miriam, Miriam, “my fair fuckin’ lady” Miriam. From the very start she had me with her snarky spitfire devil-may-care ways, though in truth it is her sec...

    Dangit, Wendig! That ending! And you're going to make us wait for an explanation? Seriously? Book five had better come out this year or very early next! Bah!

    Miriam Black is back, bitches!In Thunderbird, the fourth installment of the series, Miriam is seeking a mysterious psychic she hopes can finally rid her of her curse - the ability to foresee the death of those she touches. During her search, she becomes mixed up with a group of domestic terrorists with grand ambitions. Following inadvertent skin-to-skin contact with a member of their troupe, Miriam has a vision of their horrifying plan. Will Miri...

    Another EXCELLENT Miriam Black book! I wonder if there will ever be another character/series that I love as much as Miriam. If so, I've yet to encounter one in any other book. It's a travesty that this isn't a TV series on HBO/Showtime/FX, etc. Miriam is her usual foul mouthed, dark self (aka, perfect!) as she investigates the bad deeds a terrorist-like organization is up to and a mysterious young boy that might have powers of his own. Great stor...

    3.5 stars. Don't offhand recall specifically what I thought of the prior three (although I know I liked enough to keep reading them), but suspect frankly that this was the best of the bunch. Wendig seems to be growing as a writer and doing a nice job developing his style (both prose and storytelling) for the Miriam Black books. Hopefully in the next two of this second trilogy he'll start answering some of the big questions.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the plot about the Coming Storm, but, damn, I love Miriam in all her jagged brokenness.

    Miriam Black is back! On the path to rid herself of a curse, Miriam discovers that her power has more to offer than she thought.Miriam Black is attempting to be healthy. Running, cutting out cigarettes and participating in a relationship. That all goes to hell when. while out on a run, she encounters a woman with a young boy fleeing an unseen threat. Upon touching the woman, she has a vision of both of their deaths. Using her new (and badass) pow...

    The nitty-gritty: Miriam Black is back and kicking ass in the desert! And even if you haven't read the first three books of the series, take note: I haven't read them, and I had a hell of a great time with this book. Arizona license. Steven McArdle. Got forty bucks in there and a MasterCard, both of which she pilfers. “Don’t mind if I do, you murdering dickwhistle.” A sudden nostalgic glow washes over her, like remembering Christmas from y...

    Miriam is back and fierce as ever. This was definitely an unexpected turn for her story, but a nonetheless fantastic one fill with complex villains whose motives and personalities are far from black and white, creepy magic, unexpected visitors, pulse-pounding action, and gritty, razor sharp writing. I couldn't believe how much I missed this series until I started reading this fourth book. Yes, it was ruthless in almost every way imaginable (hones...
  • Tobin Elliott
    Wendig's a great writer, both of fiction and non-fiction (and if you don't read his blog at, then shame on you).This book though... I can't put my finger on exactly why it didn't resonate with me, but it just sort of...didn't. The writing's there. The characters are there. The plot was decent. I don't know. Maybe it was the too-long wait between The Cormorant and this one. Maybe it's that I've gotten used to Miriam's particular ...
  • Scott
    Great readI really dig the whole Miriam Black series. This was just as good as Mockingbird which was one of my favorite reads last year.
  • Francesca
    4.5/5Addio, Miriam Black. Non ti dimenticherò mai.
  • Philip
    Another fantastic Miriam Black novel. Fans of the series won't be disappointed.
  • LilyElement
    3.5/5. Review to come.
  • AJ
    This year, I challenged myself not to read any novels by white dudes, but this was my one exception... I mean c'mon, it's Miriam Black. I've been waiting years for this series to pick back up.Unfortunately, this wasn't quite the 5 star read I had hoped for. It was still good, and I still love Miriam far more than I should, but I don't know if I like the direction that Wendig is taking this series in.The Doomsday cult that Miriam runs across feels...

    The end of this book knocked me clean on my ass. WOW. I love this series and Miriam, but I need her to get just a smidge smarter. She's still awesome tho.
  • Mary Saha
    Really?They better not push back the next one like they did this one. Cliffhangers are not nice. Loved the book though. I missed Miriam. Hopefully we see more of Isaiah.
  • Michelle
    Dammit. Too short.
  • Elizabeth
    I love this series. I've missed Miriam's foul mouth and her stubborn refusal to give up. She isn't good, but she does good and that's part of why her story is so compelling. This book grabs you from the first few pages and doesn't let go. I love it more than I can really say and I can't wait for book #5.
  • Kailander
    Where is book 5? Damn I hate cliffhangers...
  • Nick Nafpliotis
    Instead of resting on the framework he created in the first three books (which still could have made for a good novel), Wendig launches Miriam into an even bigger story, both with regards to the world around her and the heart beating inside her chest.Read my full review at Adventures In Poor Taste:
  • Alma Alcazar
    Miriam Black is really a badass girl. Since the beginning of this series, Miriam dared and survived all the obstacles that comes her way. She is fierce and strong. She have comes a long, long way to understand her so-called curse. I just been shocked by the ending of this fourth book. I guess there will be a follow-up book for this and I'll bet it will be the most thrilling of all.
  • Danielle Caseñas
    My fucked up bestie is back!I'm still along for the crazy foulmouthed ride with Miriam Black. But damnit, Chuck, that ending?? I need book five. (Veruca Salt voice) I want it now!
  • Easyjenn
    Wendig has done it again!Miriam Black is a marvelously flawed character. She navigates through the world surrounded by a small group of friends that are flawed in a variety of ways that mostly can be attributed directly to Miriam. I'm awaiting the next installment.
  • Tiffany T
    I enjoyed this book so much. The punchy attitude filled story is acidic like black coffee and just as dark and tasty.
  • Christopher Hickey
    Black Is BackIt's been too damn long. Miriam Black is like a relapse of an addiction--you don't WANT to love her, but you can't help yourself. Wendig is your classic pusherman, leaving you wanting more.
  • Nicole Evelina
    The first book in this series will always have my heart, but this was pretty darn good. Had a few WTF moments but the ending! I actually said "oh shit" out loud. Come on book 5!
