Read a Sample

 

A girl wakes up on the train tracks, a subway car barreling down on her. With only minutes to react, she hunches down and the train speeds over her. She doesn’t remember her name, where she is, or how she got there. She has a tattoo on the inside of her right wrist of a blackbird inside a box, letters and numbers printed just below: FNV02198. There is only one thing she knows for sure: people are trying to kill her. 


On the run for her life, she tries to untangle who she is and what happened to the girl she used to be. Nothing and no one are what they appear to be. But the truth is more disturbing than she ever imagined. 


The Maze Runner series meets Code Name Verity, Blackbird is relentless and action-packed, filled with surprising twists.

 

My Thoughts

Action, suspense, mystery and thrills, BLACKBIRD has it all!

I enjoyed the fast pace, the plot twists and turns and how we learned everything at the same time the MC did. The second person POV took some getting used to, but the story was well-written, intriguing and kept me guessing right up to the very end.

Great start to the series!

 

 

The Places That Inspired BLACKBIRD

Many of the settings in Blackbird were inspired by real places in Los Angeles, where I currently live. Here a few spots you’ll find yourself.


Vermont/Sunset Subway Station

Where the opening scene of the book takes place. You wake up on the subway tracks, a backpack between your feet. You can’t move. As the train barrels over you, you can’t even remember your name.
 


Winchell’s Donut House

You’re sitting in a booth in the corner when you notice a man watching you. He knows you—but from where? You stand, go to the door, and he follows you, chasing you out into the street.

 


Griffith Park
b2ap3_thumbnail_Griffith-Park.jpg
Where you meet one of the men who is tracking you. He says he doesn’t know who you are, but you’re not certain you can believe him. Why has he been following you? What does he know about the woman who was trying to kill you?

 


Travelodge

Where you stay after you are framed for robbery. You’re hiding out from the police, scared they’ll show up at your door at any moment. How long do you have until you’re brought in for a crime you didn’t commit?

 


Union Station

You need to leave town, to get as far away from Los Angeles as possible. You don’t have a real ID. There’s no way to get a plane ticket. You head downtown to the train station, hoping to head out that night.

This book sounds SO unique and interesting! I don't know that I have ever read a second person POV before, and the whole synopsis just sounds great!
