This was a disappointing sequel. It just lacks the compelling conflict of the first book. Back then you didn't know who to root for! It was thrilling to see Artemis as both villain and champion of humanity, a cold-blooded swindler and yet also a young boy outsmarting mythical creatures to save his family. But in this book, humans and fairies suddenly team up in a very contrived manner against B movie villains. Boring. (And of all things, dwarf digestion makes a reappearance as a major plot device! WHYYYYY.) I probably won't be reading further in this series, though I'd still recommend it as standing WAY above the crowded fantasy-adventure market for the intended age group.
