WARP: The Reluctant Assassin

November 16th, 2013 - Posted in Library News -

Cover-WARP-Book-1-The-Reluctant-Assassinby Eoin Colfer, 341 pages, Grades 7 and up

The author of the Artemis Fowl book has created another sci fi page-turner.  Agent Savano (Chevy), a disgraced teenage FBI agent has been removed from her post and sent to a remote station in England where she cannot cause any more trouble.  Her current job consists of “watching the pod;” the FBI is using boredom to punish her.  Meanwhile 100 years before, in Victorian England an assassin’s apprentice (Riley) is getting a lesson from his terrible Master (Garrick) when something very strange happens.  Their victim pulls little Riley and himself through a wormhole to the 21st century right into the pod Agent Savano has been required to watch. It would seem that Riley has finally escaped his miserable fate and his evil master, but the thing about Garrick is that “he is the devil himself” and there is no stopping him, not even 100 years of time.

If you enjoy adventure stories with smart kid characters you might also like Artemis Fowl, by Eoin Colfer as well, or The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart.  If you like science fiction you might also like Planet Thieves, by Dan Krokos, or Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
