The Lost Colony (Artemis Fowl #5)
When the fairy folk decided to live underground to keep their world a secret from humans, the Demons refused to join them. Instead, the Demons chose to move their island home to another dimension where they could hide until they were strong enough to defeat the humans. The island ended up in Limbo and the Demons were trapped indefinitely. However, as the time spell weakened, demons began popping up in the present.

Even so, it was very interesting, with the introduction of Nº1, a demon who feels out-of-place in his bloodthirsty world.
One thing Eoin Colfer knows how to do is end a book. The last pages of his works inspire you to wish you had the sequel in your hands. This one is not only no exception.
Of all the series, this one is probably the most pretentious. But that's only minorly off...more
There is no excuse for a children's book to be shoddy. I'm not ashamed of reading children's books, but I do wish authors would try a little harder. Colfer has a good mind and a great deal of potential to write we...more
But I do feel that there was just a little too much going on for me, and a lot of new characters.
And, on a personal side, I didn't at all enjoy Minerva. She didn't even grow on me like characters usually do.
But there are some interesting developments that are key in book too and definitely worth the...more
My favourite character development by far in this series is Artemis Fowl’s. I really love who he is becoming with the influence of his friends and family. I mean, yes he still has his desire to be challenged but he’s not the cold-hearted boy...more
Ten thousand years ago, humans and fairies fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear to the fairy families that they could never win, they decided to move their civilization underground and keep themselves hidden from the humans. All the fairy families agreed on this, except the 8th family, the demons.
The demons planned to lift their small island out of time until they had regrouped and were ready to wage war on the humans once more. However the time spell w
Wow. What a way to end the series (I don't know if Eoin Colfer plans to write any more Artemis Fowl but if he doesn't end up adding any more to the series than The Lost Colony was an excellent way to finish up the story).
Personally I have always been interested in time travel and the whole idea of messing with the time/space continuum which is what this book does when it introduces an 8th family to the people, demons. Granted, involving demons usually sends a book in...more
firstly,oh my god, this was so forced! it feels like he just keeps on adding and adding stuff to the books just for the sake of sounding interesting. he adds this time travel thing without even mentioning them in the past books. and in the first book it had been said that Artemis is always ahead. now, how is he ahead when he keeps getting his guard down. in the first book he calculated all the possibilities that could go wrong...more
If anything, Colfer's extensive cliched language has onl...more

Of course, the tech stuff that is the signature of the series was just as awesome as always. Oh boy, do...more
Where Harry Potter created an entirely new life and customs and language, this fairy world just likened to everything human. At one point a fairy referr...more
The Lost Colony is the fifth book in the renowned Artemis Fowl Series.
In this book, Artemis figures out where the demons are likely to pop out and finds out that the Demon Realm is in huge trouble and needs help. He plots a plan to save the world of demons, but when his arch-nemesis Minerva manages to capture the demon first, things began to get interesting.
It introduces a new character Minerva Paradizo, a pretty 12-year-old French girl who happens to be as smart as Artemis an...more
Is it just me or is Opal Deception the highlight of this series, with these next two books on a downward trajectory? Because the criminal mastermind with a heart plot really doesn't work past the first book, leaving the crimi...more
Cerita ttg kaum Demon yang memindahkan seluruh dunia mereka ke Limbo dengan menggunakan lorong waktu,pada waktu yg sama ketika kaum peri memindahkan seluruh dunia mereka ke bawah tanah.
Ceritanya jadi kurang menarik karena tidak terlalu banyak tantangan yg dihadapi oleh Artemis dan teman-teman perinya, mulai dari pencarian demon,pertemuan dengan anak perempuan jenius (minerva) yang dianggap seba...more
