    The Rook

    Wow. This is really good. Well written with great twists and turns. When you think you have figured it out something happens and it changes again. Hard to put down. Loved it

    Original and funny!

    If you like Charles Stross's Laundry series then you should love this. This is a spy thriller mystery with a heroine with a dry sense of humor.

    Refreshing Speculative/Supernatural Read

    A list of things I absolutey loved about this novel: - The protagonist - I've crowned this particular protagonist, Myfanwy, a gem protagonist as she just seems so real and relatable. She's not entirely gorgeous, but she has her glamorous moments. My mind is still pretty blown with regards to the fact that the author is male, but wrote a female character so accurately and realistically, which I notice a lot of female authors goofing up on. I think it is mainly because Myfanwy was not meant to be idealistic or to fulfill any reader/author fantasies. She existed in this story to help the reader really connect to the story and setting. - rich and imaginative world-building; though it takes place in London, we are introduced to an entirely different world - the world of the supernatural and the Checquy. - The secondary cast of characters - I really liked Alrich, Ingrid and Shantay. There were some other characters as well, but I don't recall their names right now. - Humor-filled narration; it was quite mild, but really helped lighten the atmosphere up a bit, especially considering how gruesome and peculiar it was. Here's an example: "As soon as I had clapped my eyes on the thing in the box, I'd flung it away with what I later heard Ingrid describe to one of her friends as "the squeal of a terrified piglet." There's definitely a lot more that I loved. I do think it could have gone a little tiny bit easy on the page count/details, but it didn't bother me much in this book. I do wish there had been some romance, but again, didn't bother me too much. I don't think I'll be reading the sequel anytime soon. An excerpt was included in my copy of the eBook and it wasn't terribly intriguing. So if I come accross the sequel someday, I'll be sure to read it. Until then, I'm keeping a lookout for any new books by Daniel O'Malley .

    Fantastic

    One of my favourite books of the last few years. The story is imaginative and engrossing. I have already read this more than once, and I know I will continue to reread it. It combines fantastic elements with human concerns in a story that keeps you guessing. Highly recommended.
