Review: The Hangman's Revolution
The Hangman's Revolution by Eoin Colfer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Chevie Savano has returned to her modern London after time traveling back to Victorian London. When she left she was an FBI agent, now there is no such organization and a Fascist movement known as the Boxites control everything. Enough memories are seeping into her consciousness that she knows this is not as the world was and right when Professor Smart was beginning to explain the WARP program he was killed and now the secret service police are after her. She escapes, but ends up in the past and now she is faced with the possibility of a totally different future. Can she prevent the Boxite movement from beginning? If she changes anything, will it be for the better or worse?
The Hangman’s Revolution is the second book in the W.A.R.P. series. I always recommend readers follow a series in order, but this book would be able to be read out of sequence if the reader happens across it. The action is persistent and the story flows quickly and smoothly. Readers will be swept into the adventure and soon realize they lost a large chunk of their day. Although this story in itself is wrapped up completely, Colfer sets up the next book in the series nicely and I can’t wait for W.A.R.P. #3 to be released.
