The Regional Office Is Under Attack!eBook - 2016
"[R]ollicking good fun." -- New York Times Book Review
"A tour-de-force." -- Laura Miller , Slate
In a world beset by amassing forces of darkness, one organization--the Regional Office--and its coterie of super-powered female assassins protects the globe from annihilation.
At its helm, the mysterious Oyemi and her oracles seek out new recruits and root out evil plots. Then a prophecy suggests that someone from inside might bring about its downfall. And now, the Regional Office is under attack.
Recruited by a defector from within, Rose is a young assassin leading the attack, eager to stretch into her powers and prove herself on her first mission. Defending the Regional Office is Sarah--who may or may not have a mechanical arm--fiercely devoted to the organization that took her in as a young woman in the wake of her mother's sudden disappearance. On the day that the Regional Office is attacked, Rose's and Sarah's stories will overlap, their lives will collide, and the world as they know it just might end.
Weaving in a brilliantly conceived mythology, fantastical magical powers, teenage crushes, and kinetic fight scenes, The Regional Office Is Under Attack! is a seismically entertaining debut novel about revenge and allegiance and love.

I liked this book, it was full of action and quite funny. I thought the ending lacked something, I'm not sure what but I found I could not invest in it the way I did for the first 3/4. A read-a-like-ish for The Rook.

As we left the copy room, we congratulated ourselves on not just our escape but on how in sync we were with each other, and how good our instincts were, how we should've been spies or special agents ourselves, and, busy congratulating ourselves, we were surprised when one of the goons grabbed one of us--Carl from accounting--and socked him over the head with the butt of a pistol, and only because Carl was so wide and the hallway so narrow were the rest of us able to keep running despite the two other guys who brained Carl.
