Book Review: Rook by JC Andrijeski

***This book was reviewed via XPresso Blog Tours

Allie lives In a world where two races dwell in uneasy cohabitation. She thinks she’s human. She’s marked as human. The Seers, a race of psychically endowed people, believe she is something far more. They think she is the Bridge,  a being that appears rarely, and is capable of reshaping humanity.

Or extinguishing it completely.

Revik, one of the Seers, kidnaps Allie, but also protects her from the Rooks, who want her too. One day she’s just going along as usual, and the next she’s considered a terrorist, and is running for her life. Now she has a choice- help the people who understand her, who can help her understand herself- or go back to the humans, the culture she was raised in. To whom should loyalty be given?

I enjoyed the premise of the story. Books about psychic gifts are not usually my forte. I’m not sure why, since movies and shows with them interest me. The Seers are fascinating. I’m not entirely sure about the Bridge thing though. Perhaps more will be unveiled in the sequel. Things were fast-paced, and full of action. This would make a great action flick! I did feel there was something lacking in character interaction. Things between Revik and Allie felt off, wooden and stilted at times. The pacing made up for most of it. I look forward to the next in the series.
