The Reluctant Assassin Review on The Guardian

The Reluctant Assassin Review on The Guardian
Eoin Colfer, much acclaimed author of the Artemis Fowl series, returns in this brilliant new novel, W.A.R.P: The Reluctant Assassin. He masterfully tells the tales of a very secret organisation, time travel, a Victorian boy sucked into the twenty-first century, a hired assassin, a girl named after a petrol station, a crooked banker who is plagiarising modern books and releasing them into the Victorian era, and an awful lot of bad luck.

It has got to the point where Colfer, the highly praised fantasy writer, writes fantasy no more. Instead, his books read as realistically as real life. All of Colfer's books are completely different, yet all are of the same high standard and all the characters just as diverse but immediately lovable. Riley is no Artemis Fowl, nor a Conor Broekhart, but a character of his own. He may not be a prodigy, or a daredevil, but he has his own traits that get him through the book. Unfortunately, he is not the only one with tricks up his sleeve…

....Eoin Colfer doesn't get better than this.
