I liked Blackbirds a lot, and Mockingbird well enough, and there are a lot of interesting things going on in Miriam Black’s story, but by now, in book three, I want something more from Miriam.

Wendig brings it on, with his short, punchy chapters and good set-ups and loads of cliffhangers, but Miriam doesn’t seem to be learning a whole lot, still putting herself in ultra-dodgy situations and dealing with the fallout from the last two books. It’s a rip-roaring ride, although sometimes hard to follow and I feel like Chuck Wendig should be writing stellar, not just good, books.
