Action! Action! Action! That's the name of the game in Eoin Colfer's The Arctic Incident.

Child prodigy and criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl is searching for his kidnapped father. He needs the help of the fairy police, and as it so happens, they need him. Law and lawbreakers work together in this fast-paced, humorous action-fantasy.

Eoin Colfer has created fun fairyland for the 21st century. It's a nice, soft blend of technology and fantasy, not too heavy on either count. The scope of his world

The Artemis Fowl books really are perfect for a quick, easy read. Which is good, because I'll be doing the twenty-four hour readathon tomorrow, and I really don't want to get burnt out on reading!

The Arctic Incident develops Artemis as a more sympathetic figure, having left behind his attempts to exploit the People (the fairies), and feeling some remorse over how he handled things in the first book. He's also focused on rescuing his father, missing for two years, convinced he's still alive. Mean

For me, as an adult, the Artemis Fowl series is a guilty pleasure.

I get a kick out of Artemis, smart beyond reason youth he is, and like the relationship between him and his bodyguard, Butler.

Throw in the fantastical underworld of fairies, dwarfs, and other magical creatures and there are a lot of options for a fast-paced, fun story.

In the second installment, Artemis finds himself in boarding school now that his mother has recovered and begun to assert rules on the boy.

Not to be stopped, Artemis

Recommends it for: kids all those young at ♥
There's nothing that attracts me more, than a genius without the glasses. Especially if the geek looks like this

(For those who don't know this hottie, he's Chuck/Zachary Levi) However, if the geek involved is 13 years old and is a criminal mastermind, plus fantasizing that he would grow up faster than a normal human being would, well thats just plain pedophilia. :))

Well it's not actually that bad, if you'll become an instant billionaire and with him you could rule the world together. But still

Recommends it for: Fans of antiheroes who happen to be children, high tech adventures, and faery creatures
Eoin Colfer has done it again. I loved the sequel to Artemis Fowl. How could I not, being a combinations of things that fascinate me: Russia, antiheroes, faery, and cold environments (arctic/North Pole). Yes I was very much enjoying this book.

The action is great, tempered with the laugh out loud humor. Artemis is up to his usual machinations, and exhibiting his snarky sense of humor, often at the expense of elder authority figures. I don't normally like precocious, know-it-all kids, but somethin

My second foray into the world of Artemis Fowl was another quick, fun adventure. This book is a true sequel to the first with the continuation of the story arc of Artemis' lost father. Once again this ends up involving the fairy world including Artemis and Butler's first trip down below.

Engaging from the first page this book has a great pace that kept me turning (or should I say clicking) through the pages. I like the way that Colfer doesn't talk down to his readers. This is a children's book bu

I completely fell in love with the first book in this series, however this second iteration has fallen short of the mark set by the first.
It's by no means a bad book, and I enjoyed the view point of Holly Short more in this than the first. However, my love for the first came from Artemis himself, and in this one...

So, a big issue with writing very, very smart characters, is that they have to BE very, very smart. This came across beautifully in the first book! Artemis managed to outsmart everyone

“Artemis: (shocked) Why, Doctor? This is a sensitive area. For all you know I could be suffering from depression.
Doctor Po: I suppose you could. Is that the case?
Artemis: (head in hands) It's my mother, Doctor.
Doctor Po: Yes?
Artemis: My mother, she...
Doctor Po: Your mother, yes?
Artemis: She forces me to endure this ridiculous therapy when the school's so-called counsellors are little better than misguided do-gooders with degrees.”
