The Rook immediately grabs your attention as it throws you in the middle of the action. The story of Myfanwy Thomas – or the girl who lost her memories start to unfold before you. This girl wakes up in the midst of pouring rain and is surrounded by dead bodies. She doesn’t know how she got there nor does she know who she is. Does she have amnesia? Yes, but not in the usual way you think a person would get it. Her amnesia was caused by an act of supernatural power.
It turns out, Myfanwy is a Rook, a high ranking official, in the Checquy. The Checquy is a secret organization that protects Britain from supernatural disasters and she has some powers of her own.
The girl before her memories are wiped, apparently left herself notes. She knew she was going to lose her mind before it was going to happen. It was also someone from her own secret organization trying to get her!
As Myfanwy struggles to find out who the traitor was and why he/she is trying to destroy her, she has a newfound understanding of her abilities and she isn’t afraid to use them. Simultaneously, another secret centuries old organization that is the enemy of the Checquy has been slowly rebuilding their army..
