This is a fast paced fantasy thriller and the mystery is quite satisfyingly solved.

Rook Thomas deserves all the kudos, specially pre-memory loss. I really love when I can be in the shoes of someone so efficient and well prepared. I'm intrigued about the next books but I'll miss the letters format for sure.

This is one of the books that I loved the most this year!

Loved the first half. The end fizzled a bit.

Solid fun, exciting mystery. I liked the unusual structure, with superpowers and secret government organizations, but all so British. The main character has lost all her memories, and so the story has a very unique perspective of someone trying to figure out their old life, which was crazy. A bit violent for my usual taste, but highly recommended.
