Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world's youngest, brightest, and most dangerous criminal mastermind is back.

In his second adventure, Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland, when he suddenly receives an urgent video e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian mafia — a man Artemis had never thought he would see again: his beloved father. As Artemis rushes to the freezing Arctic Circle to rescue his father, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he'll have to join forces with them to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Review:

"The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away in recent memory. (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Filled with puns, word plays, and inventive new concepts about the fairy realm, this mix of fantasy and science fiction will delight fans and make converts of new readers. An exhilarating Celtic caper that stands very nicely indeed on its own merits." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Eoin Colfer's sequel to the popular Artemis Fowl is as action-packed and irreverent as the first. A witty blend of fantasy, spy tale, and action movie, readers are sure to enjoy the fast-paced adventures....As soon as they turn the last page of this book, they'll be hungering for the next one." Heidi Hauser Green, Children's Literature

Review:

"[An] entertaining sequel....The action is brisk, with fiendish plots, ingenious escapes, and lively battle scenes....Many characters from the first book return, though none develop much beyond their basic personality traits." School Library Journal

Synopsis:
