The Cormorant by Chuck Wendig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"It is what it is."
This book was *almost* a four star rating as compared to Blackbirds and Mockingbird but then, WHAM, BAM, thank you, Ma'am! The ending just sucker-punched me and earned itself that fifth star.
I was concerned at first. I missed my Louis. I didn't like the beginning. I was disappointed Ashley Gains was back. I thought maybe the plot line was becoming formulaic or predictable.
Shit got real. Really, real and I loved this side of Miriam. I don't want to give *any* spoilers so I'm just going to say, Miriam evolves yet again. She is constantly growing, learning and with this painful process, her gift/curse adapts and changes too.
I love the new characters we got to meet: Gabby, Jerry & Corie, (not the FBI agents, I didn't care for their personalities at all) and Sugar. I liked Sugar a lot and it proved that Wendig is good at making very distinct, unique voices for his characters--none of them blend in together or sound the same like in so many other books with a strong protagonist. Sugar was light and ethereal and refreshing--like a drink of crisp, clean water when you've been slopping around in the gutter.
I loved this third installment of the series and I'm excited for where the story is going. Thunderbirds, is going to be BAD ASS!
