Eoin Colfer THEN
The main protagonists in this rather complicated but oh-so-readable sequel are Chevie, an 18 year old FBI juvenile consultant who has travelled from the future to try to fix the past and Riley, a Victorian orphan who intends to be a stage magician and who has managed to strand his evil master, assassin, Albert Garrick in a time tunnel. Eoin says of the story that there is no need for newcomers to worry about the nitty gritty … things are going to go disastrously wrong…don’t fret – for there are laughs too and japes…..but: it’s mostly deadly danger. So, if you are of a sensitive disposition, abandon ye this volume now and find for yourself a book about ponies or the like.
