Now a Starz® Original Series
"Utterly convincing and engrossing---totally thought-through and frequently hilarious....Even this aging, jaded, attention-deficit-disordered critic was blown away." --Lev Grossman, Time
Myfanwy Thomas awakens in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, she must trust the instructions left by her former in order to survive. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization, and this person wants her dead.
Battling to save herself, Myfanwy will encounter a person with four bodies, a woman who can enter her dreams, children transformed into deadly fighters, and terrifyingly vast conspiracy.
Suspenseful and hilarious, THE ROOK is an outrageously imaginative thriller for readers who like their espionage with a dollop of purple slime.
Customer ReviewsSee All
This audio book is now on my favorites list. It is light-hearted, fun, and interesting with plenty of action. The conversation is delightful. I would put it in the sci-fi/farce category. I listened when walking and often had to stop and throw my head back for a great laugh! That is the truth. Did a man really write this book? It seems to be written so well from a women's mind. I looked forward to listening to it each day. Please hurry and write more.
Wonderfully written story with great characters!!
Enjoyed this very original story with a great characters that drive the story to a new level!
Great Hidden Gem
I bought the audiobook when looking for something to listen too until other titles I'm following are publised and I'm glad I did. The premise is interesting and it starts fast. The characters are distinct and sympathetic. The plot is great and does not get to bogged down. The narrator has a nice voice and does the caharacters well. A great Listen! Since this is the first, the bar has been set quite high for future stories. I'm certainly looking forward to them.
