sends me my reward card Enjoy Mel page turner page turner lady wakes in park with no memory battered bruised bloody surrounded by dead people that she killed with her bare hands cause she has special powers the same special powers that i have often imagined myself having if dreams came true uelle coincidencethe narrative is propulsive the ideas are automatically right up my alley the whole thing is clearly built for fun i ave it to a colleague and he immediately halted the book he was reading because the jacket description alone was enough to ive him a massive boner same here but i could have been challenged or surprised a bit the narrative oes back and forth between the present day actions of the woman before us and past letters that the woman she used to be wrote to her which could have opened up many interesting possibilities not even necessarily literary possibilities but maybe something along the lines of a potboiler cum meditation on memory like Memento but nope all those letters from the past serve a very straightforward function infodumps hella infodumps entertaining and intriguing infodumps and nothing but page turner page turner young woman is named Miffanwy rhymes with Tiffany she works for a secret overnment agency that is staffed by people with super powers and whose oal is to protect the world from super powered and supernatural threats including the evil Belgian Grafters the high level administrators have titles named after chess pieces cool my favorite is one who lives in multiple bodies and whose name is Gestalt Miffanwy is in charge of domestic operations and her title is The Rookyou know what i hate well many things but in this instance the answer would be cheap snarkiness ugh i even hate the word snarky such an ugly word like it was made up by a 12 year old the only cheap snarkiness i appreciate is the kind that pops out of my mouth or from my keyboard otherwise it needs to be ood or the eye rolling will commence Good as in the films of Howard Hawks or Joss Whedon some of the time unfortunately most snark is of the CW or SyFy networks variety which to me is just lazy shallow writing unfortunately this novel is full of cheap snarky dialogue that comes out of nearly every character that is when they are not sounding like The Lord and Lady of The Masterpiece Theater Manor and so characters end up sounding just like each other and as if they just stepped out of one of the Scream films it Understanding Women grew tedious and hey Daniel O Malley listen high levelovernment administrators in both the US and the UK particularly ones who are women probably do not refer to other women as chicks on a regular basis now that was just intolerable to readbut page turner page turner ignore the bitching above this book was all kinds of fun and i read it like reading was oing to be declared illegal at the end of the night pure pleasure i can t wait for the seuel plus no tedious romance to speak of yay woot win 299 Kindle sale July 14 2019 Loved it Review posted at wwwfantasyliteraturecomAs Daniel O Malley s supernatural thriller The Rook book one of THE CHECUY FILES begins Myfanwy Thomas comes to herself with complete amnesia She s standing in a London park at night Surrounding her is a ring of motionless bodies They are all wearing latex lovesMyfanwy rhymes with Tiffany finds two letters in her jacket pocket from her former self Dear You The body you are wearing used to be mine I m writing this letter for you to read in the future Myfanwy s former self was aware that in some way her brain was Verdammt verliebt going to be magically wiped of all memories and did her best to smooth the way for future memory less Myfanwy by writing a number of letters to herself All you need to know immediately is that someone I should be able to trust has decided that I need to be removed I don t know exactly who I don t know why It may be for something I haven t even done yet The second letter presents her with a choiceo into hiding for the rest of her life using the fortune in a bank account specified in the letter or jump back into her prior life and try to find out why she was betrayedNew Myfanwy fully intends to The Way Between the Worlds (The View from the Mirror, grab the money and take off but another attempted assassination convinces her that the only feasible option is to stay and fight Having selected Option 2 she and we embark on reading a long series of letters from her former self which explain Myfanwy s past life as a high ranking member of the Checuy an organization of people with superpowers who help Great Britain and the world with various types of supernatural threats It s sort of like the X men except with a lot British bureaucracy Myfanwy needs to figure out who in the Checuy betrayed her and why while trying to hide from everyone the fact that she no longer remembers anyone or anythingAs an info dumping device the letters are a bit transparent but it s all interesting enough that I never felt like complaining except for one or two times when these flashback letters interrupted a particularly suspenseful scene Firstet Myfanwy out of mortal danger THEN ive us another letterIn an interesting conceit the Checuy organization is based upon chess pieces there s a Lord and a Lady the king and ueen of the organization two Bishops two Rooks etc Only those people who have some kind of supernatural power can be in the top ranks of the Checuy All others are Pawns which leads to some understandable resentments and tensions in the ranks Also it uickly becomes apparent that former Myfanwy for certain reasons in her past was an extremely sensitive and timid person and despite her stellar organizational skills was not much respected within the Checuy New Myfanwy not burdened by those painful memories soon starts to spread her wings and exercise her clout within the organizationThere are multiple types of superpowers on display in The Rook but they re not your run of the mill superpowers We have for example Gestalt who is a single mind that inhabits four very ood looking and freuently homicidal bodies Others can exude poisonous clouds of ink sprout uills or develop an impenetrable steel coating The Rook is written in a breezy easy to read style with a lot of wry humor in the writing and dialogue There are several laugh out loud momentsIt was a dress designed to draw attention You look like Cinderella said Val in awe Yeah if she d been into bondage and had Christian Dior as a The Good and Beautiful God godmother Myfanwy is an easy protagonist to root for as despite the handicap of her memory loss sheamely takes on both her coworkers in the Checuy as well as the enemies they re battling After the initial set up there s a lot of action in the plot except when it s slowed down by the ubiuitous letters from Myfanwy s former self The mystery of Myfanwy s secret enemy kept the plot suspenseful and there were some interesting twists that I didn t foresee The Rook may not be Great Literature but it was just so much fun45 starsContent advisory scattered F bombs a fair amount of violence and ore Honest to od I m both confused that I m still reading this book and appalled at how highly rated it seems to be everywhere The praise this book has been etting ot me interested in reading it and within a few chapters I had to wonder if there was some massive conspiracyTo put it uite simply the book has an intriguing premise that s destroyed by a hackneyed writing style a juvenile approach to character and a narrative that is The Horse in Celtic Culture grossly overshadowed by the writer s apparently high opinion of his own talents The ma. 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 latexloves 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.

Erence to run and hide rather than do anything heroic But she can t because she s a powerful person without being able to remember it CrapShe is jealous sometimes while never ever slut shaming or hating another female for her appearance In fact one of the women with whom she works Please let her have slept her way to the top thought Myfanwy No one deserves to be this beautiful Finally First reat read of the year Admittedly that s because I m hoarding Days of Blood Starlight and The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There like a survivalist with canned oods or a chocoholic with a secret stash of Toblerone in the back of the freezer not that I m speaking from experience And while I tempered down my five stars to a reasonable four the fact is this was a perfect read the first time through I ll save the detailed summary this is one time when the blurb Every Boys Dream gets it right It starts rather hard core action movie woman coming to consciousness in a midst of a circle of bodies no memory of self or events dripping from the rain and blood She discovers an envelope in her pocket from the Myfanwy That Was Soon it evolves into a James Bond styleovernment agency spy thriller crunched with identity disorientation of The Bourne Identity Halfway through I realize O Malley is channeling The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy or at least Men In Black and that the flashbacks felt a lot like X Men I m finding it disturbing that I m describing a book by referencing movies Is that acceptable in a book reviewNarrative shifts between letters from Myfanwy That Was to the current scramble of Myfanwy That Is to solve the mystery of who is trying to kill her While that had the potential to become a tiresome device O Malley uses it well Starflight Zero giving context to Newbie just before she needs to use it cuing the reader at the same time Sometimes Senior relates an incident sometimes she lays out structure and organization orives a dossier on other characters For the most part it was able to maintain pace and tension through the shifts At times O Malley is tongue in cheek right as Myfanwy thinks I suppose I should do some homework on how this organization actually works the next section is from one of the letters under the title of How This Organization Actually Works I actually found it rather delightful highlighting the mental similarities in how they process information As the story develops Myfanwy starts to take on her own personality abrupt and direct than the prior who she now thinks of as Thomas their last name I thought the transition between the two was handled well and as the story developed I cared just as much about what happened to Thomas and wanted to know her story even though I knew where it would end here s where my habit of peeking at the end of books comes in handy it s kind of like the book is a spoiler for it s own self because we know Thomas is dead or at least A Succession of Bad Days gone I enjoyed Myfanwy s character breaks and it set the stage forentle humor as she responded almost but not uite in character An emergency has emerged and both you and Rook Gestalt have been summoned to an interrogation the secretary replied in an unruffled mannerOh Okay Myfanwy looked down and her desk thought for a moment and then looked up Are we The Multi-Orgasmic Man getting interrogated or are we doing the interrogating she askedThen there isIt s time for your dinner with Lady FarrierOh crap she sighed then noticed Clovis s shocked expression I mean ohood this should be delightfulThe humor isn t out front in the beginning which now strikes me as one of the delightful parts about the writing Tightly wound around an action core at the start O Malley sneaks in humor one subtle comment at a time radually becoming absurd The first hint that we aren t in London any comes about three chapters in when we meet Rook Gestalt really one of the innovative creations in sci fifantasy literature that I ve happened upon One mind four bodies I found myself trying to wrap my head around that one somewhat distracted by comparing it with Zaphod and his two heads and just ot rather smacked with the possibilities By the end the absurd veered out of control at a couple of points but for the most part O Malley was able to maintain the balance between chuckles and tension Before too long the American version of the Court comes to call and the subtlety The Great Passage gloves come off when the American Bishop Shantay and Myfanwy take on some fungus after lunch of course That is experience talking said Shantay In these situations thelass is always half empty Always Always confirmed the Bishop Right until it fills up with some sort of spectral blood that The Beast House / After Midnight grows into a demon entity Or a threat I ll kill you first promised Myfanwy in a cold voice I ll kill you twice if I feel like it Truly riveting fun exactly what I needed after an awful start to the week it was the ideal book experience of immersion and diversion Highly recommended to anyone who likes a dose of humor with their surreal action spy mystery thrillerFour out of five stars Or are theyUpdate from Dec 2015 reread I think I nailed it fairly well the first time except that part about humor It s seriously funny almost all the way through in that very British wayCross posted at from September 2019 idk almost all the way through There is a lot of back story I tried to like this book I really did I have disliked so many books lately that I am afraid of becoming a book curmudgeon But this book deserved my dislike it ASKED for my dislike This book reads like the beloved project of theeeky high school junior who has been told by too many English teachers that he has talent and should be a WRITER What little action takes place does so between enormous wads of italic description You know how you ve read books in which a character finds letters left behind that help her figure out what s Off Leash (Freelance Familiars Book 1) going on Imagine a suitcase full of letters Imagine a fictional world that is so weak and spindly it needs pages of explanation to keep itoing Imagine an amnesiac taking the helm of a major international organization and nobody being the wiser Imagine high school humor masuerading as clever Imagine an interesting premise bludgeoned to death by its own ego Imagine yourself reading a different book I did and put this one down before the halfway point Gosh this is a bit negative isn t it I mean I loved this book Myfanwy Thomas wakes up with a note that says This body used to be mine YEAH I LOVE AMNESIA PLOTS Except this is a bit than that Secret societies are kind of my fave and this book builds a GREAT one The secret Cheuey I love all the chess terms battle supernatural forces in the world and this new amnesiac is now fully immersed in it I definitely felt like this could be a TV show the richness of the world is so I Walk in Dread good The tone is a bit hard torasp but it s classic British serious but also cheeky so once you The Life You Save get on the tricycle you reolden It s just FUN like Dr WhoThe pacing of this book was the only part I can uibble with a bit erratic at times but the world building was rich and the characters super fun I loved it and would like to see in the world Sale Alert Oct 13 2019 Kindle Deal for 399You ve woken up and are surrounded by a handful of dead people wearing Tempting Meredith (Lovers and Friends, gloves and have no idea who you are or how youot there But luckily there is a note and with this note and a few others you learn about a world you had no idea even existed Dear You The odds of your reading this are slim to none Who would choose uncertainty and vaguely worded warnings over a new life of wealth and luxury I can only assume that you were put under a massive amount of stress touched someone s skin and they were paralyzed Or blinded Or lost the ability to speak Or befouled themselves Or one of several other effects that I won t outline right now Well the Inside MacPaint good news is that at least you woke up awesome with some kind of superpower The bad news is that you now have to impersonate someone you have never met figure out what happened to you and who is probably trying to kill yousince whoever they are they don t seem to have any idea that you are no longer herConfusing Nah not really What it is IS a wonderful set up to a completely interesting idea Myfanwy the W is silent Thomas isoing to pretend to be a member of a super secret Othello (Shakespeare for Everyone Else, government agency that deals with supernatural and paranormal situations and disturbances She isoing to try and figure out who tried to have her killed and why just as soon as she figures out how to be Myfanwy ThomasI enjoyed a very large section of the story because I found it fascinating on uite a few levels But since I read this in a Fit For The Chase; Cars And The Movies group there were varied opinions on the layout of the story and I will say that while it didn t bother me it did bother a few of them See there is a lot of infodumping But I moing to ive it a pass because of the way it was presented Thomas wrote letters to herself after a psychic told her she would lose all her memories and in those is where we et a lot of history to the Checuy Her Majesty s Supernatural Secret Service and Thomas s position in it Not every letter ends up being pertinent to the story because how was Thomas supposed to know and sometimes I think it reads a lot like a journal of someone s day So while I liked this aspect of the story because of the extra details and such I think others Luthor Huss got bored with it since some of it had nothing to do with the story I was completely entertained and so I will allow it For me this is areat blend of humor and Urban Fantasy Myfanwy is easy to like and I enjoyed even the times she is fumbling through her life Seeing this world around her as she discovers everything that you never knew existed was a fantastic tale and I really wanted to Variante, Vol. 2 (Variante, get to the bottom of who on the inside is trying to bring it all down This should be a pleasant little interview All I have to do is put on my scary faceYou have a scary face Ingrid sounded skepticalYes said Myfanwy indignantly I have a very scary faceIngrid surveyed her for a moment You may wish to take off the cardigan then Rook Thomas she advised tactfully The flowers on the pocket detract somewhat from your menace SO IN CONCLUSION If you are looking for something with a solid premise the has some new takes on lore mythology and such and doesn t really have any romance looming in the wings than this might be for you I enjoyed all the extras weet from Thomas as she tried to lead her new self after the amnesia creates a new person in her body and I m pretty interested in seeing what becomes of Myfanwy in the future. Aristocratic woman who can enter her dreams a secret training facility where children are transformed into deadly fighters and a conspiracy vast than she ever could have imaginedFilled with characters both fascinating and fantastical THE ROOK is a richly inventive suspenseful and often wry thriller that marks an ambitious debut from a promising young write.
In character is not even remotely likeable When she s not being a high school prom ueen regularly calling technical people nerds repeatedly criticizing the dress sense of the former occupant of her body she s delivering oh snap wisecracks She s just strong enough to take command of a situation when a story needs it but also nicely feminine enough to need to be rescued She confronts the leader of the enemy forces and her primary concern is the Managers of Their Homes grossoop Competitive Solutions getting on her clothes She appears commanding and independent and in the next scene is naked in front of a stranger for laughs and then subjected to intrusive and demeaning physical exams for comedy She s strong willed enough to be attractive but not so much that she s truly an independent character Her sexuality is regularly and offensively used as a tool to humiliate her for laughs and that makes her non threatening In short she s not a character so much as she s a collection of tropes designed to make her the perfect female character for the male audienceTo make matters worse none of the secondary characters are anything than one to two word tropes Ingrid motherly secretary Shantay sassy friend Alrich mysterious vampire etc None of these characters develop from these descriptions into anything memorableSetting aside the issue with characters is the issue with plot Myfanwyoes from knowing absolutely nothing to be a confident and controlled leader of a powerful The Payoff Principle government organization How much time has passed between her waking up and her turning into this bombshell in a suit We re told it s been several weeks and it s here that we arrive at the crux of the problem with the narrative we re told too much We re told everything We re not left to learn anything Practically overnight she turns from this terrified mouse whose every third thought is DO THEY KNOW MY SECRET to this confident administrator When her sister appears we re told suddenly that she is lonely and wants friends and family There s no buildup There s no sense of thisiven to the reader through dialogue and emotional description I had no idea this was coming We re told that she suddenly wants to be with friends and family just as we re told that she becomes confident in her new role These are just two examples of manyThis Darkest Night (Birthright, goes further than just the author hamfistedly handing us important facts about the characters as though we re moving our way down a checklist The book redefines what it means to infodump Nearly every chapter is interrupted by what is essentially an encyclopedia entryiving us the history of the character Myfanwy just met or the term she just encountered When it s not an infodump about a character it s a letter written by the pre amnesia Myfanwy telling the current Myfanwy some story that is rarely connected with the plot at hand and it s usually written in such exacting narrative detail that violates the nature of the epistolary format that these sections are written in Finally there are just so many parts of the plot that make ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE you re hunted by the same person who made you lose your memory and just killed a bunch of your friends and you decide to o out clubbing and then the author spends four pages talking about how ruined her clothes were and her struggles to et her car back from a hotel 7 Hari Mencintaiku garage In what world would this be even slightly logical An uneuivocally awful book Avoid unless you re looking for something for kindling This is ridiculous she thought I m possessed of terrifying powers Why am I relying on a ridiculous littleun that I picked because I thought it was cute I don t need this thing She threw it contemptuously over her shoulderThere s something foul wandering the underground tunnels beneath my office something that s invisible to my vaunted powersCrapWhere s my Rich Kids gun This book is X Men meets X Files meets The Bourne Identity meets Johnny English And that may sound like a clusterfuck to end all clusterfucks but somehow it works or maybe my mind is just trying to make it better than it is because I m coming off a massive chain of horrible books Whatever I loved itIf this book were made into a movie I can totally see Tina Fey in the lead roleTheood Witty dry humorous writing A female assassinsecret agent not afraid to kill A fun and interesting secret agency think paranormal MI5 A well executed amnesia premise A racially diverse and fun suporting cast of characters NO ROMANCE CAN I GET A FUCK YEAHThe not so The Perfect Collection good uestionable character development The length it s aood book but it could stand to be cut by a Bob Stevenson good 100 pages The infodump It s a fun infodump but it s still an infodumpThe Summary Dear YouThe body you are wearing used to be mine A woman stood shivering in the rain surrounded by a circle of dead bodies She has no idea who she is A letter

Shakespeare Festival Actors Telling the Story get out I ve only ever heard of three people who tried to leave the Checuy and I know the history inside and outThe first was a powered individual called Brennan the Intransigent who made a break for it in 1679 He was crucified on the cliffs of DoverThe second was a soldier in 1802 He was carefully brought back to the Checuy stronghold and then buried

The Setting This book is an infodump I usually hate infodumping but it was done exceedingly well in this book Through a series of letters the old Myfanwy explained the inner workings the history and the stories surrounding the infernal Checuy Agency It s a pretty typical paranormal agency but it is so well presented from the internal politics to the ranking to the little known details only an insider would know It s an old agency it is resistant to change Paranormal or not some things remain the same Occasionally someone will point out these flaws and attempt to institute a change but that person is slapped down The reasons for this down slappage areIf you re in the Court you have an impressive title and you don t want to change it for something enericTraditionIt s supposed to remind us
