The Rook - Daniel O'Malley This book was kind of amazing.

My only issue was that the story was leading up to a confrontation (which we got) but the resolution happened off-page. There was conflict at the end of the chapter. And the next scene was the aftermath of a event we didn't see. It just felt like something was missing. I even flipped back to see if I skipped a page by mistake.

But that aside, the story was fab.
