The Lost Colony (Artemis Fowl #5)
This book (as well as the third book, The Eternity Code), was my favourite book in the series! This book was very interesting, even as it was told from the perspective of NÂ°1, the demon (who was very powerful;I don't want to tell you what he is, that'd spoil the book). I've loved all of Artemis Fowl's adventures, and I've grown with him, so I found it hilarious when he talked about puberty! Also, he likes having some "intelligent jokes" with Minerva, a 12-year-old genius, who, very much like Artemis, was very greedy when he was 12 years old. She wanted a Nobel Prize. Artemis wanted to save two species from extinction. In the end, Artemis, Holly, NÂ°1, and another warlock (I forgot his name, sorry), help save the island of the demons. But they had to go in time. "You must have one hell of a brain to get us this close!" I quoted the warlock. Apparently, he would have been surprised if they got back in the same century. But 3 years had passed since Artemis, Holly, NÂ°1, and the warlock had disappeared. So, Artemis should supposedly be 17 years old (about to turn 18). When he comes back, Minerva is 15, and... he has twin brothers!!!
I personally really, really, really loved this book!!! I also felt bad for NÂ°1, because he was the last of the... well, he didn't turn into a demon. He was an imp. Imps turn into demons. But NÂ°1 never became a demon, even after fourteen years. Maybe, maybe he was a warlock! I hated it when the others teased him, and it was so awesome when Artemis met him. I really like the Artemis and Minerva pair (even though I'd prefer Artemis myself, but he's too smart for me). I can't wait for more books in this series!!!
Artemis is back...again! In this adventure there is must more going on.
For one thing there are demons.
For another there's another evil genius (Has Artemis met his match?)
And of course, there's an awesome twist at the end!
This Artemis Fowl book was as fast paced as the others. What makes these books so good is that there's never a dull moment.
In this latest installment of the Artemis Fowl series, we learn of the knowledge of Demons, who left the world several millenia ago because of an ancient war with the faries. Artemis has indeed discovered them, and has met someone just as smart as him, who seeks to expose demons, and the existence of all fairies. Can Artemis stop her? Find out in this classic tale of magic, time travel, and, as always, cool fairy technology, by Eoin Colfer!
Demons have always existed but they lived their lives in Limbo, a place that was cut off from the other worlds until one day, something went terribly wrong. All of the sudden, the time/space continium was ripped apart and a very polite demon was hurtled onto Earth. Luckily Artemis Fowl was there, he had turned to the good side, or so it appeared. With the help of Holly and the old team, they tracked down a group intent on seeking out demons. They were led by a young girl, also a child prodigy-and a very pretty one at that. This definitely changes Artemis' plans and puts them into a high-action adventure. This was a great story and there seems to be more to come since the ending was a bit mysterious.
This book is complicated. First, there's Holly, who's working with Mulch as a private detective, mourning her days in the LEPrecon.
Then there's the innoucuous Number 1, an imp in the abovementioned Lost Colony of the demons. Yes. Demons.
And then we've got an annoying but unsurprisingly familiar Minerva, a 12 year old girl with quite a lot of brain power.
Not to mention Butler, who's getting run ragged by Artemis yet again, flying around Europe all in the course of days. And who is still as stealthy and suspicious as ever.
And then, the man himself...
Artemis and his chums are back in well-crafted, layered, and enticing fifth novel in the ever funny and ever enchanting Artemis Fowl series. This time, Artemis finds that the lost colony of the demon population--who lived on a moon rock island that fell to Earth and was thrust out of time by seven wizards to avoid the human population. Yeah, it's a lot to swallow--but that's the thing: not only is it an action-filled, hilarious and brainy adventure, it's also a mystery--one that's not as predictable as you might think.
I highly recommend it, but be forewarned: make sure you have a lot of time on your hands, because those words on the page are gripping!
