Book Review- Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer
Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer is the second book in the Artemis fowl series. Artemis Fowl wants to find his father, who is held hostage in Russia; Holly Short wants to find who’s supplying the goblins with human technology; Foaly wants to find out who’s disabled all the LEP Technology and pointed the finger at him. Artemis has received a ransom demand for his father but is captured by the LEP who suspect him of supplying the goblins with dangerous Human technology (batteries).
He convinces them he’s innocent and agrees to help them if they help him free his father. Meanwhile, down in the underground world, chaos has arisen. An unknown traitor has stolen forbidden weapons and armed a horde of trolls, setting them loose to wreak havoc on the citizens. Clues lead Captain Holly Short straight to Artemis, and she exacts a small bit of revenge by kidnapping him, just as he once kidnapped her. But soon she learns that Artemis isn’t behind the chaos, and if she’s to have any hope of stopping it, she will need his help.
As a result, these onetime adversaries must now join forces—a mix that proves to be both charming and volatile. Artemis is not one who would want to let go of money, however, family comes first in this case, so what mastermind plan will Artemis execute in order to save both fairy and human worlds?!
Artemis Fowl is an Irish heir to the Fowl criminal empire and a child prodigy. He is one of the only “mud person” to know about and underground race of armed fairies and let’s just say that they haven’t got off to a great start.
Now Artemis’ father is being held captive by the Russian mafia who are asking for a ransom; Holly short discovered that goblins are being supplied with AAA batteries and she suspects none other than Artemis fowl to be the dealer. These two worlds are about to collide again as Artemis is abducted by the LEP and convinces them he is innocent, agreeing to help them find the real culprit in return for help rescuing his father. This is the start of an unexpected friendship between the two, the first alliance between mud people and Havens fairies, but what disaster will Artemis get himself into this time.
This adventure will keep this boy on his feet (literally) as he races against time itself to save his father and the underground race itself.
Artemis Fowl is my favourite book series and this book is one of the best. In this book, Artemis fowl agrees to help holly short track down the culprit who has been supplying goblins with AAA batteries in return for help with bringing his father back safely.
They think this is just a simple deal and after that they can continue living their lives, what they don’t know is that this is the start of a lifelong friendship
. These series are just so diverse; a female woman who isn’t driven by men or jealousy to another woman, 2 female main characters one of owns a gun and the other one is a wrestler who is interested in girlish stuff like nail polish and pink, a girl who teaches a very pale boy who to hold a gun. This book is full of adventure newfound alliances or friendships, thrills, comedy and wit.
A great read for all ages especially tween and teenagers.
“Grab some caviar from the kitchen. You wouldn’t believe the muck they feed us in Bartleby’s for ten thousand a term.”
Normally you would be surprised to receive such a request from your average twelve-year-old but Artemis fowl is not your average twelve-year-old. His witty remarks though out the book are a pleasure to read. This boy thinks he’s a clown from making 3 jokes in his entire life.
He is as pale as a vampire, tanned from his computer screen. He has never held anything bigger than his phone in his hand. You would start to wonder how this kid saved the world and universes on a daily basis. Artemis fowl is the perfect combination of James Bond and fairy tales combining both guns and pixie dust. The age rating for this book, however, is between 10 and 16.
