I like the books where the character comes into their power. You know where something Epic happens. No such thing happens to Brynn in Black Rook. Yeah, her seer powers increase but not to an awesome level. I am like a kid that way. There were Magi, Vampires, Loup garou(wolf shifters) in the book but you don't see them in their element. What is the point of having shifters if they shift only 4 times in the book? Vampire had only a three bite role in the whole book and Magi (the supposed bad guys) had no particular role. Black Rook is one of those books where you wait for the MC to come into their power, you know for something unexpected to happen, but sadly it never happens in this case.
