The Rook by Daniel O'Malley

The Rook, The Rook, how to best tell you about this book. I’d say The Rook is like Men in Black, where a group of covert operatives protect the world from supernatural evil forces, but then I’d be leaving out the chess… I’d say The Rook is like that scene in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Hermione pretends to be Bellatrix Lestrange in order to gain access to Voldemort’s crew and secret base, but that would only make sense if Hermione was actually a follower of You-Know-Who and had to pretend she was the closest ally of He-Shall-Not-Be-Named so as not to be killed but a fellow follower. Are you following me? Probably not. Intrigued? I hope so. For the entire post, click here.
