Publisher's Summary

"The body you are wearing used to be mine." So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her. She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Checquy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain.
She also discovers that she possesses a rare and deadly supernatural ability of her own. Filled with characters both fascinating and fantastical, The Rook is a richly inventive, suspenseful fantasy. An astonishing debut from a brilliant new voice.

A fun listen

I've seen this book described as M15 for wizards but I think it might be more X-Men for bureaucrats. That said, I really loved it and found it highly entertaining. Can't wait for the next book.

Really wonderful. Totally engaging .

This book grips you from the first sentence to the last. The story is non stop, really it is VERY hard to find a spot to turn it off to rest for a min. You just can't stop listening. Likewise the narrator is extremely good, totally believable as the voice of the lead character, and all the other ones as well. I can't recommend this book highly enough.I have often read and listened to books that seemed to start well and then fizzle out,but this one keeps its promise to the very last word, literally! Read it or you will miss a good experience.
