Review: Thunderbird by Chuck Wendig

Let me tell you, I was so excited to hear there was going to be another Miriam Black book. It’s been several years since the last one, but she has remained a favorite character for me. She has a wonderfully sardonic sense of humor that normally strikes a perfect balance of irreverence, humor and darkness. Miriam also has an unusual ability. Often when someone can do a thing others can not, you would call it a gift. For Miriam, though, that is debatable. When she makes contact with another person, shaking their hand, a touch on the shoulder, any skin to skin contact, she gets a vision of their death. What a way to make for everyone to make a first impression on her because not matter how you look at it, death is not pretty. In this latest installment, Miriam is set to rid herself of her “gift”. (can you blame her?) She had heard about a psychic that could help her understand her gift/curse, and maybe even help her control or get rid of it. So, optimist that Miriam is (huh, yeah… OK, so maybe not an optimist, but she is determined), she hits the road with a friend…
