If Artemis Fowl is “Die Hard with Fairies”, then W.A.R.P. is “Oliver Twist” meets “The Matrix”…The Reluctant Assassin is the first book in the W.A.R.P. series. W.A.R.P. stands for ‘Witness Anonymous Relocation Programme’. The assassin of the title is young Riley who has been apprentice to Albert Garrick, a Victorian illusionist who has fallen on difficult times and taken to using his unique conjuring skills to gain access to victims’ dwellings.

Loved the non stop action and the surprising twists and turns . The characters were well written, and the fight scenes were very exciting.
