As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves. Download and start listening now!

    " Honestly I struggled to finish this it just isnt my style I dont think. Didnt hold my attention or make me want to get back to it when I put it down. Story line was OK just not my thing. As much as I like to finish series once started I just cant do it with this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 10/20/2012

    " I think I like this one better than the first. Possibly because Artemis begins to exhibit some human emotions & is more attractive for it. The action is quite good, especially during the scenes set in Murmansk, & it leaves a good villain still around for future books in the person of Opal Koboi. "

    " Interesting kids novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tarek | 6/28/2012

    " I think this book is a fascinating book. It has a lot of action. The author of the book is Eoin Colfer. This is a series. It is about how Artemis Fowl went to look for his dad. He meets Captain Short of LEP. He doesn't like him that much. In the end they destroy the goblin base. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louie Ballard | 12/22/2011

    " I think the title is not to accurate because even though they are in the arctic most of the story happens under ground. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harriet | 11/14/2011

    " Artemis is more boy than villain in this installment, and the People dominated the story. Still very enjoyable, especially the characters. :) "

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) is the New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster Artemis Fowl series, among many other works.

He has worked in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Italy, and his first book, Benny and Omar, published in 1998, was based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been translated into many languages. In 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published to great success. His Artemis Fowl books have now sold over twelve million copies worldwide.
