Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Book Two-Now available in mass market paperback Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he suddenly receives an urgent video e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from his father, who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves. "A cracking good read."-Publishers Weekly "The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away. . ."-Entertainment Weekly (review: A-)

Review:

"Colfer has produced new gadgets and new baddies and taken the emotional side of the story much further than before. The characters are more real, they show more feelings, but still retain that fantastical quality that makes these stories classics of our time. What an outstanding sequel..." Mrs. Mad, Mrs. Mad's Book-a-Rama (www.mrsmad.com)

Review:

"Once again, the roller coaster of a plot introduces a host of high jinks and high-tech weaponry as Colfer blends derring-do with snappy prose...and repartee....[T]he high-concept premise may be a tad slick for [some], but Colfer's finger is firmly on the pulse of his target market, and...he delivers a cracking good read." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Artemis is at boarding school when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. It's from a man Artemis never thought he'd see again: his father, who has been kidnapped by the Russian mafia and pleads for help.
