Review: Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer

Title:  Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony
Author:  Eoin Colfer
Rating: 4/5

I received a copy of this from the publisher, Disney-Hyperion, via netgalley.com for an honest review.  My thanks to the publisher for this opportunity.

Summary:  The fifth book in the Artemis Fowl series and another of my favorites.  This series does not seem to ever disappoint me.  Once again, Artemis will have to pair up with his old comrade, Captain Holly Short, to track down the missing demon and rescue him, before the time spell dissolves completely and the lost demon colony returns violently to Earth.  That’s all I’m sayin’ in my summary. 

Review:  Alright, so we have the fairy folk who moved underground to keep their world safe and secret from humans right?  Then we have the demons, who flat out refuse to join the fairy folk underground. Instead, these wonderful demonic creatures decide to move their whole island to another dimension.  Yup! Demons got it good, lets hop dimensions to keep our secret world safe from humans! This will work.  Failure on their part.

They are now stuck in Limbo! Such a wonderful place to be! Ain’t it? Especially when you are stuck there indefinitely…with nowhere else to go, right? No, something bad is bound to happen and it does of course, the spell weakened and now we are getting demons in present time – yup, always a good thing to have demons popping up in the present and causing demonic mischief and such!

Though, Artemis’ first attempt to capture one of the demons that come through is thwarted.  Someone got their first, leaving our hero flabbergasted, because that demon was supposed to be “his.” Oh, and did I mention it is a 12 year old GIRL that keeps Artemis on his toes.  She’s very pretty, and a French genius, her name is Minerva Paradizo. 

Will Artemis and his friends be able to save the world from destruction (again)?
