Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox
Faced with the imminent death of his mother as a result of his irresponsible behaviour in an earlier adventure, Artemis Fowl travels back to confront his younger self and change the course of events to save her. Meanwhile he must also face the consequences of having lied to his friend, fairy police captain Holly Short - and seriously compromising their relationship.
Colfer skilfully explores ethical issues in this fast-paced adventure story, without prejudicing its ability to attract and engage young readers. Vivid and exciting, the sixth installment in the Artemis Fowl series is packed full of anarchic and irreverent humour.
