Another fine Artemis Fowl novel, this one poses a burning question: Has Artemis met his match? This was a fast and enjoyable read, a 'must' for all fans of the boy genius/criminal mastermind!

A lot goes on in this book that makes it hard to put down. Some new characters have been added, which I'm hoping to see more of, and Artemis continues to grow as a person, which makes the series totally worth reading.

Enjoyable book!! The author could have finished the series here and I'd have been content. Books 6 and 7 were disappointments.

Artemis Fowl is back (finally)! I was terrified that my favorite Irish billionaire genius teenager was gone for good because author Eoin Colfer has been publishing a variety of books in the last couple of years that had nothing to do with good old Artemis. But, fortunately, the boy genius hasn't been forgotten. He's back and more brilliant than ever in this fifth installment of the high-tech fantasy series.

As THE LOST COLONY opens, Artemis is fourteen years old and experiencing the uncomfortable pangs of puberty. While that alone is enough to keep most teens busy for a few years, Artemis has to contend with his surging hormones while trying to save an entire fairy race as it teeters on the brink of extinction. But it's that kind of multitasking that has made Artemis Fowl an international sensation.

THE LOST COLONY has all the elements that Fowl fans have come to expect, including a dizzying array of fairy-issue gadgets, danger whizzing past our heroes from a variety of sources, ingenious plans, and a bodyguard who is as loyal as he is lethal. This book also includes a few new characters who were, for the most part, likeable and fun. The one notable exception is a twelve-year-old French girl who could give Artemis a run for his money in the genius category. She is pretty, rich, and highly annoying. I often found myself wishing that one of the other characters would "accidentally" dunk her in a sewer, or shave her head, or something equally unpleasant. Is it wrong for me to have feelings of aggression toward a fictional character? No, I don't think so. And you'll understand what I mean once you read the book.

Fans of the ARTEMIS FOWL series will not be disappointed in this newest adventure. There were a few problems with the story, including some hard-to-follow descriptions of how Artemis and company escape their latest predicament, and an irritating French girl (see above). Overall, though, I found this an enjoyable book with an ending that knocked me for a loop. And, as always, I was left wondering what mischief Artemis will dream up next.

Actually, this book was for my son who is ten, but I did read it myself. He thought it rated a five and I thought a three so we gave it a high compromise of three and a half. The whole Artemis Fowl series is definitely worth a read; it is funny and smart.

This book is a whole new world of fantasy! Eoin Colfer had created a world in the past with mythical creatures in it. This book is very good for ages 9 and higher. Remember this is just a guess. If you are not sure about it read a few pages and see what you think about the book. This book would fit in the sci-ti and fantasy genres. I hope this was a help to you.
