Blackbirds - Chuck Wendig
April 24th, 2012 - Angry Robot
Miriam Black knows when you will die. She’s foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, and suicides.Blackbirds is hands down the coolest, creepiest cover I've seen this year. Luckily, the insides sound pretty dang cool and creepy as well.
But when Miriam hitches a ride with Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that in thirty days Louis will be murdered while he calls her name. Louis will die because he met her, and she will be the next victim.
No matter what she does she can't save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she'll have to try.
