Blackbird (Blackbird #1)

Title: Blackbird
Author: Anna Carey
Series/Trilogy/Duology: Yes
Pages: 256


This twisty, breathless cat-and-mouse thrill ride, told in the second person, follows a girl with amnesia in present-day Los Angeles who is being pursued by mysterious and terrifying assailants.

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.

Personal Opinion

m writing this and I just think about one thing, I need to read the second book, REALLY!!

After reading Civil War, I wanted to read about something different to superheroes and all of that and this book caught my attention since I read the synopsis.

When I read the synopsis I didn´t have doubt that I was going to read this book this year, because, in general, this kind of books in which the main characters can´t remember anything and throughout the book they are finding out things really caught my attention, it is so interesting.

This book from the beginning, well, from the synopsis leave you with many questions that you want to know the answer. To be honest, it was being an interesting book but I felt it a little slow in the first half, I wanted answers xD what was happening? who was the girl? who were chasing her? and those questions were on my mind all the time, I felt like I wasn´t doing any progress but from the second half of the book everything gets better, because we begin to know what is happening.

Something interesting about this book is that it is written in second person, it is like you are the main character and the things were happening to you; but there were also some confusing parts, because there are chapters from the POV of another character or the main character has flashbacks, those parts were a little confusing and I had to read it again in order to understand.

About the characters, I think that we couldn´t know much about them, and I understand because given the circumstances on the book, but I like the characters, the main character is very strong and she doesn´t give up for anything; I had just one problem with her and with the book, that is the romance, I felt it a little nonsensical under the circumstances of the main character and  too fast.

The best of the book were the last pages, especially the last 5 chapters, there´s a plot twist, and although I had thought about it, I didn´t see it coming. The ending has a big cliffhanger and I just hope to read soon the second book and find out what is going to happen on this story and how this is gonna end.

I haven´t read Anna Carey before, but I think this book was a good start  to read this author :D
