(Blog Tour) Rook (Allie's War, #1) by J.C. Andrijeski
Twenty-eight-year-old San Francisco native, Allie Taylor, at least thought she was human. Against a gritty and original backdrop of a modern-day Earth populated by a second race of beings, Allie finds out she's a member of an enslaved yet deeply powerful race, whose members believe her to be their most venerated leader, come to end the reign of humanity. With her guide, Revik, a mysterious and deadly seer who acts as her bodyguard and teacher, Allie will come to grips with who she really is, or end up a slave like the rest of her kind...or worse, betray the very people she always thought of as her own
This book is the type of book where you are brought right into the story and unable to let go from the very beggining. I know I was hooked right from the start and considering I was one of the states hit hard with the string of Tornado's this week, it was a good thing.
Rook, had enough fast paced car chases, hiding out, conspiracy's and complex story lines that it kept my thoughts well away from the destruction and the sense of helplessness that settled in.
The charachters were rich and complex, with so much depth it was almost as if I knew them in real life.
I enjoyed a very well thought out villian and the relationship between Allie and Revik was written with enough chemistry I am enjoying the show.
So, if you are a fan of the type of story where two races, The Seer's, who are enslaved, and the Humans with enough action to keep your heart pounding then this deffinetly is the book for you.
