    Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. 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.

    Ethan M. says: "Harry Dresden meets English bureaucracy"
    "3 cheers for our Myfanwy Thomas!"

    What did you love best about The Rook?

    For me this book was X-Men meets Memento. The story was unfolding before me while the past was also being filled in behind me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Since our Myfawny Thomas has no memory her character is revealed to us and to her simultaneously. With just enough laugh out loud moments to balance the incredible "who done it" suspense. I just love her tenacious spirit and honest wit!


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan brought Myfawny to life right next to me. I would actually speak to her and felt as though the author was writing her response that very moment. I've listened to and read the book as well. It was Susan's voice I heard in my head while reading. I missed Myfawny the moment I closed the back cover and ejected the final CD.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was so worried for and excited by Myfawny running into her sister. I was also quite upset when Myfawny was in "the fleshy cube" and was slipping away from us.


    Any additional comments?

    Please write for us again soon Daniel O'Malley.....there is a renegade Bishop on the loose that can't be trusted!
