The Rook - Daniel O'Malley

Urban Fantasy
#1 in the Rook files
“The body you are wearing used to be mine.”
a world similar to ours
but with some extras for some people
special powers
and secret organizations
a woman without any memories of the past
of the life she finds herself in
she needs to learn fast
to stop what is going on
and to survive
this Urban Fantasy is a special one
with lots of details about the world
the people and the organization
our heroine is part of
especially at the beginning a lot of new information is introduced to the story
at first this made it hard for me to get into a good reading flow
but then I realized that only reading 30-40 pages at a time
solved my issues
Daniel O'Malley has created a fascinating and complex world
one I could believe in
one that interested and entertained me
I loved getting to know the heroine
I loved learning more about the world together with her
the ending is a rather open one
and still it worked for me
in 2017 a second book in the series will be published
and I hope that it's going to be as good as this one
if you like Urban Fantasy set in a complex world
then this book could be great for you
just don't expect constant action.
