Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony

Publisher: Penguin

Review

In this fifth episode in the ongoing saga of Colfer's teenage criminal mastermind, renegade Irish fairies begin popping up in unexpected places, and Artemis feels the first stirrings of adolescent emotion when he meets another juvenile genius, Minerva Paradizo. As ever, bodyguard Butler and Captain Holly Short are on hand to help Artemis side-step trouble - though the formerly-disgraced Holly has now been recruited to a covert organisation designed to keep tabs on Fowl.

Once again, Colfer combines wit, humour, action, folklore and fantasy in a rip-roaring spy story, which nonetheless addresses some serious issues. Fowl's move into full-blown adolescence brings new dimensions to this enthralling series.
