ROOK by MONICA MACDONALD

 

Could you be the monster to save who you love?

Two women, separated by generations, must leave what they know to start a new life. Seventeen-year-old Kate’s senior year is ruined when she’s moved from the only home she’s ever known. After an isolating month alone in her apartment, school starts, but neither her classmates nor her teacher are who they seem. Kali, a single mother living in the nineteenth century wilds of Montana, is stalked by a malicious past. She fights to keep her daughter safe while her freedom is threatened by her less than benevolent benefactor. Both find love, and with it hope, but that is quickly ripped away as one woman must learn the lessons of the other — before it’s too late to save either.

My thoughts:

My first impression is that the book has a beautiful cover.  I believe that is always a plus and I really do enjoy a good cover.  It is sometimes difficult to discuss thoughts on a book without giving too much away.  I also think that it is exceedingly difficult to write a paranormal YA romance without going too far.  It is a bit refreshing to find a unique read that doesn’t have you rolling your eyes at the extremes or disbelieving content.  I also find that too often in this genre it is too easy to read the same thing, just under a different cover.  ROOK will be a good series, it is a bit different and will hold its own storyline.
