Review

""Blackbirds" is a horror story, a traveling story, a story of loss and what it takes to make things right. It's a story about fate and how sometimes, if we wrestle with it hard enough, maybe we can change it. Blackbirds is the kind of book that doesn't let go even after you've put it down and nobody else could have made it shine like Chuck Wendig." -- Stephen Blackmoore, author, "City of the Lost" and "Dead Things
"

"Trailer-park tension, horrified hilarity, and sheer terror mixed with deft characterization and razor plotting. I literally could not put it down."
- Lilith Saintcrow, author of "Night Shift" and "Working for the Devil"

- Stephen Blackmoore, author, "City of the Lost" and "Dead Things"

"Mean, moody and mysterious, "Blackbirds" is a noir joyride peppered with black humour, wry observation, and visceral action. Fans of Chuck Wendig will not be disappointed."
- Adam Christopher, author of "Empire State"

"A gleefully dark, twisted road trip for everyone who thought Fight Club was too warm and fuzzy. If you enjoy this book, you're probably deeply wrong in the head. I loved it, and will be seeking professional help as soon as Chuck lets me out of his basement."
- James Moran, "Severance," "Doctor Who" and "Torchwood" screenwriter
"Enchanting and drowned in blood, Blackbirds is a meaty piece of fiction, a non-stop mind-job where the first hit hurts and you keep going back for more. It's the kind of gritty, unapologetic story that grips you long after the book's done; dark, intense, utterly without mercy. Chuck Wendig spins one hell of a tale."
- Karina Cooper, author of the "Dark Mission" series

- Adam Christopher, author of "Empire State
""In addition to a cast of well developed yet mentally unstable characters that enhance a fantastically horrifying plot, "Blackbirds" possesses a natural progression that doesn't rely on convenience or contrived circumstances to move the story forward. Author Wendig's distinctive, straightforward style is accessible and insistent; and the generous helpings of violence are strangel

"Visceral and often brutal, this tale vibrates with emotional rawness that helps to paint a bleak, unrelenting picture of life on the edge." - Publishers Weekly

Wendig's surefooted prose means that this ride is well worth sticking your thumb out for." 4 **** SFX Magazine
