Summer seems such a long time away....but the wait will be worth it. As well as some much needed sunshine, summer will also bring us the second instalment of Eoin Colfer's W.A.R.P. series. Entitled "The Hangman's Revolution" the book continues the time-travelling adventures of Chevie Savano and her Victorian-era accomplice Riley.
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.
