Best-selling Artemis Fowl is back with a new adventure. This time the teenage criminal mastermind must save the fairies from being discovered by the human world. As ever, he fights a fast and furious campaign with all the power – magical and mechanical – that his hugely original fairy world can muster. Hectically paced, this is a thrilling read.

Synopsis

Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony: Book 5 by Eoin Colfer

Ten millennia ago, the fairy People were defeated in a great battle with mankind, forcing them to move underground. Only the eighth family of fairies remained undefeated: the demons. But now one demon has discovered the secrets of the fairy world, and if humans get hold of this information the fairies are in BIG trouble. Only one person can prevent this disaster – teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl.

About the Author

Eoin Colfer

Both Eoin Colfer’s parents were teachers and young Eoin was taught by his dad Billy at Wexford’s Christian Brothers primary. Eoin remembers his dad’s presence in school as “witty…[he] made school fun.” Colfer junior’s first attempt at serious writing came in the sixth grade. “I wrote a play for the class about Norse Gods. Everyone died in the end except me.”

Eoin followed in his parents’ footsteps and trained to be a teacher but his writing didn't stop and his first book, Benny and Omar, appeared in 1999 and instantly achieved bestselling status in Ireland. Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

Apart from the hugely successful Artemis Fowl series his books include The Legend of the Worst Boy in the World, And another thing.... and his most recent adventure novel W.A.R.P.: The Reluctant Assassin.

Eoin Colfer was nominated for the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Award.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT EOIN COLFER... Praise for Artemis Fowl

“Wildly original… and you thought fairy stories were just for kids.” - T2 (The Telegraph)

“It’s a highly original adventure story with an action-packed plot which twists and turns right to the end – a kind of William Gibson meets the Hobbit/Irish Legends. It has all the right ingredients.” Marc Lambert, Children’s Programme Director at the Edinburgh Festival

“Make sure you buy it!” Denise Van Outen, Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast
