The Raptor & the Wren by Chuck Wendig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh man, I can't tell you how excited I was to find out that this book exists. I thought that the fourth Miriam Black book was going to be the last. No idea where I got that idea from, but to find out that there's a book five AND a book six coming soon? Completely over the moon.
Miriam Black is hadns down one of my favorite characters in a decade. If you haven't read any of these books and you like snarky and sarcastic female protagonists, then I would say this series is for you.
The author won me over years ago with his in your face writing. The chapter titles alone are cause for laughter.
Miriam is living in Florida in her mother's old home and raiding the homes of the recently deceased with her neighbor Rita. She's busy living her best version of her life when everything gets upended.
Old foes return and new foes emerge. Everything is a life and death struggle with her as it always is. Yet even though we end up rehashing a lot of material here (think series wrap up), it still feels relatively fresh and new for the reader.
Yes, this is a little shorter than most of my reviews, but I feel like if I give too much away it'll ruin it.
Just know that our Bitch is back.
