9780141341798: The Hangman's Revolution (W.A.R.P. Book 2)

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Young FBI agent Chevie Savano arrives back in modern-day London after a time-trip to the Victorian age, to find the present very different from the one she left. Europe is being run by a Facsist movement known as the Boxites, who control their territory through intimidation and terror. Chevie's memories come back to her in fragments, and just as she is learning about the WARP program from Professor Charles Smart, inventor of the time machine, he is killed by secret service police. Now they are after Chevie, too, but she escapes--into the past. She finds Riley, who is being pursued by futuristic soldiers, and saves him. Working together again, it is up to Chevie and Riley to find the enigmatic Colonel Clayton Box, who is intent on escalating his power, and stop him before he can launch missiles at the capitals of Europe.

Review:

PRAISE FOR THE LAST GUARDIAN
*"In his eighth, greatest and (billed as) final exploit, Artemis Fowl finally puts an end to archnemesis Opal Koboi while also saving humanity from extinction, but at a steep price. A fitting end to a brilliantly conceived and developed series." "Kirkus (starred reivew)""

PRAISE FOR THE RELUCTANT ASSASSIN
"Artemis Fowl fans will cheer to see Colfer return at the top of his game." "Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books""

PRAISE FOR THE RELUCTANT ASSASSIN
." . . fascinating high-octane thriller" "ALA Booklist""

PRAISE FOR THE RELUCTANT ASSASSIN
"This science-fiction thriller provides readers with a breathless ride through modern and Victorian Londons as these two resourceful teens struggle to stay alive and one step ahead their pursuer...the intricate plot, strong writing, and intrepid characters who must survive by their wits will make it hard to put down." "School Library Journal""

PRAISE FOR THE RELUCTANT ASSASSIN
*"Readers mourning the end of the Artemis Fowl series can take heart: this first book in the time-bending W.A.R.P. series is an all-out blast." "Publishers Weekly (starred review)""

PRAISE FOR THE LAST GUARDIAN
"A definite winner." "Booklist Online""

PRAISE FOR THE HANGMAN'S REVOLUTION
"Colfer does a great job of making not just main characters Chevie and Riley come alive, but also showing things vividly from the perspective of secondary characters such as Malarkey and the Thundercats. . .Colfer's trademark wit and adventurous plotting are in abundance as well. This is a very fun read. . ." "VOYA""

PRAISE FOR THE HANGMAN'S REVOLUTION
"Undoing the catastrophically altered present . . . requires further immersion (not just figuratively) in Victorian London's noxious stews for teenage, time-traveling special agent Chevron Savano. Colfer outfits Chevie with a Dickensian supporting cast. It's led by Riley, a street child trained up as an assassin, and larger-than-life crime lord Otto Malarkey, among others. . .Time travel makes the future a fluid reality, but it looks like it may be saved at the end, though some strings remain to be tied up-or further tangled-in upcoming sequels. . .A grand yarn told with a wink and kitted out with high stakes and broadly drawn characters for maximum fun." "Kirkus""
