Reviews

Praise for Daniel O'Malley and the Rook Files series:

"Laugh-out-loud funny, occasionally bawdy, and paced like a spy thriller replete with chases, betrayals, and tragedies. There is slime, there is heartbreak, and there are wardrobe malfunctions... Fear not, dear reader: Daniel O'Malley's in charge, and the Checquy Files are in masterful hands."--Joyce Sáenz Harris, Dallas Morning News
"Satisfying and spellbinding."--Charlaine Harris
"Utterly convincing and engrossing--totally thought-through and frequently hilarious. The writing is confident and fully fledged. Even this aging, jaded, attention-deficit-disordered critic was blown away."--Lev Grossman, Time
"Devilishly funny... O'Malley raises the action, monsters and witticisms to new levels... This ambitious romp reads like X-Men meets Supernatural as narrated by Jasper Fforde, only funnier."--Jaclyn Fulwood, Shelf Awareness
"The pace never lets up in this entertaining high-action read... O'Malley has fashioned a near-perfect supernatural thriller... Something unexpected happens on almost every page. Don't start this book unless you've got lots of time, because you won't want to put it down. It's that good."--David Keymer, Library Journal
Praise for Blitz:

"With a relaxed style and array of fun characters, including an agent who makes people who look at him see their mother and a baby goat that turns into a little boy, O'Malley's latest will appeal to his many followers."--Kirkus Reviews
