Review: Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer

Title:  Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox
Author:  Eoin Colfer
Rating: 4/5

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Disney-Hyperion, via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.  I thank the publisher for this opportunity.

Summary:  Three years later, Artemis returns and his mother has contracted a deadly disease, whose only cure lies in the brain fluid of the African lemur, however they are extinct, and have been for five years.  Thanks Artemis! Yup, it’s his fault that they are extinct.  So, time to play with time, as Artemis has to go back in time with the aid of his fairy friends and confront his most deadly enemy, himself, to save the lemurs.

Review:  The sixth book in the Artemis Fowl series, delivers yet again.  Eoin Colfer has thrown so many twists and turns to what could have been a potentially simple, easy retrieval mission.  We see a resurgence of the time-traveling demon from The Lost Colony, and he helps Artemis go back in time where he now must come face-to-face with his devious, Machiavellian younger self in an attempt to retrieve and save the African lemur.

But, something happens, and things as usual become infinitely more complicated when Artemis learns that he can no longer trust his memories of what happened all those years ago.  Will Artemis be able to save his mother? To undo the damage his younger self caused by selling the African Lemur to the extinction cult?
