Read from January 25 to February 07, 2012, read count: 1

She used to be Myvanwy Thomas, Rook of the Checquy, the super-secret agency that harnesses and manages those who have special abilities. Now her memory has been permanently erased, and she can only go by the letter in her pocket that begins: Dear You, The body you are wearing used to be mine... As she resumes the identity of Myvanwy, she rebuilds herself and forges alliances, never forgetting that whoever did this to her is still out there.

Tremendous fun, and a great first novel by Daniel O'Malley. Men in Black meets the X-Men, with a dollop of The Bourne Identity and a twist of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I look forward to the sequel.
