WARP is Out - Reviews are in - Colfer is back!
In the back of the copy kindly provided for review by Puffin, Colfer welcomes us to his new series “for lovers of time travel, adventure, intrigue, conspiracy, swashbuckling and magic with a few chuckles thrown in to the mix”. It’s really an excellent summary of what to expect from this new venture. I really enjoyed the mixture of moments of real horror, high-tech gadgets, and Victorian adventure, with the added bonus of some jokes that could only come from time-travelling conmen. There are lots of little details to make the reader laugh and smile, in amongst the truly creepy threat posed by Garrick through the book.

....Albert Garrick really is a masterpiece – he’s a truly scary villain and Riley’s ever-present fear of him drives the tension of the book...

I was also really pleased to find that this was a whole story, with a real beginning, middle and end, rather than just an exposition, as is the case with some bestselling YA series now. The Reluctant Assassin is now out in hardback, and I’m happy to recommend it as the further follow-up to Artemis Fowl: Colfer is back....
