This dystopian series by the author of Artemis Fowl and The Supernaturalist.

From the Publisher
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

School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Seventeen-year-old FBI agent Chevie Savano returns from Victorian London to find even more trouble in the present day, forcing her right back into the past to battle another villain. SLJ said of the first book, "[it] is darker, bloodier, and much more serious in tone than the author's popular 'Artemis Fowl' series (Hyperion). It may not be for the faint of heart, but the intricate plot, strong writing, and intrepid characters who must survive by their wits will make it hard to put down."
Kirkus Reviews
2014-05-04
Undoing the catastrophically altered present wrought in The Reluctant Assassin (2013) requires further immersion (not just figuratively) in Victorian London's noxious stews for teenage, time-traveling special agent Chevron Savano.Mad Col. Clayton Box has founded a nearly worldwide ecclesiastical police state in the 19th century with 20th-century troops and weaponry transported back in time. In order to nip this in the bud, Chevie plunges once again through a wormhole into the great, filthy city's thick miasmas and cobbled mean streets. Along with describing with indecent relish the fetid slums and sewers in which most of the action takes place, 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. The plot consists of a quick and, usually, violent series of escapades that culminates in an assault on Box's underground fortress. The bad guys are both clever and heavily armed, and there's much casual murder and wading through hip-deep rivers of raw sewage, along with gunfire, massive explosions and unlikely romance. 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. Chevie is of Shawnee lineage, leading her confederates to make the occasional, unfortunate "Injun" reference, alas.A grand yarn told with a wink and kitted out with high stakes and broadly drawn characters for maximum fun. (Science fiction. 11-14)
