LISA'S REVIEW: Rook: Allie's War Episodes 1-4 (JC Andrijeski)

Urban Fantasy
Date Published: November 13, 2013

The world is dying. Everyone feels it, and yet, no one knows.
They said that when the end was near, a Bridge would come, and lead them out of the darkness of that dying world.
Allie Taylor's life was relatively normal...
Until Revik showed up.
And told her she was that Bridge.
 ROOK: Allie's War Episodes 1-4
"You are the Bridge..."

Like most humans, Allie spent her life distancing herself from Seers, a race of human-like beings discovered on Earth in the early 1900s. Then she catches her boyfriend in the arms of a hot band groupie, and Allie goes from San Francisco artist slacker to the girl wearing the GPS anklet.

That's the least of her problems, though, compared to the shock of discovering who--and what--she really is.

Yanked out of her life by the mysterious Revik, Allie finds out that her blood may not be as "human" as she always thought. Through Revik she learns the truth: that Seers are nothing like she thought, that the world is nothing like it appears to be...and she has far more in common with Seers than she ever wanted to believe.

I really liked this but at times it seemed to drag on. I wanted to hate Revik at times but at others I loved him. Allie was no better. I still loved this book though. So different from many of the other books with this type. Having 4 sections all together helped me. But I still felt at times it drug on. I also liked and disliked the many POV changes. Although most of it was from Alli's POV and I liked Revik's POV, but the change was confusing at times. I think they were necessary but, it could have used a bit of a smoother transition.  Overall a really good read! I am dying to know how it all turns out so I am really looking forward to getting my hands on part 5!
