    Story
    (177)

    Cadfael's return to his Welsh homeland for a visit proves a rather discomfiting homecoming when an honorable nobleman turns up in a patch of forest with an arrow embedded in his chest. There are questions about the arrow, the man's daughter needs Cadfael's help, and a very odd burial takes place.

    Zenjen says: "Very pleasant if not much of a mystery."
    "Love Brother Cadfael Mysteries..."
    Overall

    This is a wonderful mystery in a historical setting beautifully read. The characters and setting are well developed with a level of detail that lets you really get to know them and "see" them, too. Patrick Tull's voice telling the story is perfect-you will quickly be immersed in Brother Cadfael's world.

    A terrific book that is also a wonderful audio book. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    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"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Rook to be better than the print version?

    I can't compare the two.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Marvelously funny AND engaging as a fantasy/mystery...


    Have you listened to any of Susan Duerden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will definitely be looking for more-I can't imagine anyone doing this better!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not immediately...but once the foundation of the story was laid down, I didn't want to "put it down!"


    Any additional comments?

    Ok...I'll admit that this was a story in a genre that appeals to me...but I didn't go looking for it...the story came looking for me (it was offered by Audible at a promotional price and caught my attention)....I'm not even finished listening and the story has been SO much fun that I wanted to write a review-my first-so others could also discover this gem!The writer's story is very engaging....I surely would also have enjoyed READING the book...but, as in my title, read by Susan Duerden it is BRILLIANT to listen to (in the particularly English use of that word.) FUN FUN FUN!My only "complaint?" This is Daniel O'Malley's first book in what I hope will be an ongoing series...and I have to wait to see what happens! I'm now following both the author and Myfanwy Thomas on Twitter to "stay in touch!"
