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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Action unfolds in the streets and putrescent sewers of Victorian London as time-traveling FBI agent Chevie Savano enters the scene with a mission to prevent a future governed by Colonel Box a rogue military commander with a plan for world domination. Unfortunately, Box's two Thundercat goons follow Chevie through the wormhole, hot on her heels with instructions to kill. Meanwhile, Riley (native Victorian and magician) has become entangled with the roughest gang in London, the Battering Rams, just as an undercover rebel from the future reveals himself with a bloody flourish. Together, Chevie and Riley attempt to stave off the Boxite rebellion. Though the novel is heavy on action and excitement, Colfer keeps things light with comic use of antiquated slang and banter, lead primarily by the Ram King, who proves an entertaining combination of Fagin and Jack Sparrow. Shifts in time and perspective are firmly anchored by the plot so readers won't lose track of its thread, making for a fun, adrenaline-fueled adventure with a third WARP novel set to follow.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2014 Booklist"
