The Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer, the 5th book in the Artemis Fowl Series is as exciting as ever. Maybe his best book yet! Once again the underworld is in jeopardy of exposure to humans. This time the 8th Family of fairies is at risk of exposure.
A twelve year old genius, Artemis’ match, has discovered their existence and has calculated how to catch them. Her plan is to expose them to the scientific world and win a Nobel prize. Sher is determined and will let nothing stop her, including Artemis Fowl. Hence the whole underworld fairy realm is at risk of being discovered and exploited. The fairy realm seeks Artemis’ and Butler’s assistance.
Has Artemis met his match? Will the Fairy world be exposed? Do not assume you know the outcome. This volume will not disappoint you: it is the most thrilling the the series and is filled with all sorts of twists and surprises. A must read? It can be easily read alone, but for the most impact, read the Artemis Fowl series in order. Be careful, however. Don’t start this book if you have impending deadlines or tests! Once you start you won’t want to stop.
