Stiletto (The Checquy Files, #2)
By: Daniel O’Malley
My Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars
Best for: Adults
If you hate having fun while you read, let me just stop you now. You aren’t going to like this book.
For everyone else–that is, those who love the books that make you laugh, smile, and wish would never end–you’re exactly where you need to be.
First thing first: check out the original One Man Book Club review for Book 1, The Rook, right here to get caught up. You’re going to want to start there.
But then you’re going to want to get to Book 2, Siletto, as fast as you can.
The X-Men meets X-Files fun that was introduced in book 1 continues spectacularly in book 2. The Checquy is a secret arm of the British government. They’re the answer to the very many supernatural threats the world faces every day.
Wait…you don’t know about all the supernatural threats we face every day?
Of course you don’t.
You can thank the Checquy for that.
They deal with all the deadly and life-threatening slimy, oozing, and otherwise disgusting, gross, sometimes smelly, often ridiculous, and always crazy threats so we don’t have to. They’re a department of 007’s with X-Men skills…and they are very, very good at what they do.
Watch out for a variety of four-letter words throughout and plenty of slimy (and occasionally greasy) violence.
If you’re okay with that, there’s a TON of fun to be had. Personally, I can’t wait until book 3.
Adults only because of the language.
Boring people–don’t even bother.
Everyone else, jump now!
