Five otherworldly reads set in London

Deborah Harkness named her five favorite otherworldly reads for The Daily Beast. One title on the list:
The Rook
by Daniel O’Malley

Join up with her majesty’s supernatural secret service as they save the world from certain destruction. But our heroine, Myfanwy (“rhymes with Tiffany”) Thomas has her own problems: she woke up with no memory of who she is in a room full of corpses and has a colleague named Gestalt with a four-body problem. This is whimsical and smart storytelling, perfect for summertime or any time.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Writers Read: Daniel O'Malley.

The Page 69 Test: The Rook.
