Spell-binding and fast-paced whirl of a reading adventure
Artemis Fowl, self-proclaimed teenage criminal mastermind, certainly has an enormous challenge on his hands in this book: Opal Koboi may only be a pint-sized pixie, but she's on a mission to exterminate all humans to fulfil her aim to become fairy queen. This evil plan would be bad enough, but Opal has also recruited Artemis's four year-old twin brothers to her cause! Fortunately, Artemis has the support of Holly Short who is an officer with the Lower Elements Police Force. In a race against time, they battle to foil Opal's plan and to save the twins from her clutches - taking the reader of this novel on a spell-binding and fast-paced whirl of a reading adventure! If you enjoyed the previous 'Artemis Fowl' books, you will also love this novel. And if you've never read an 'Artemis Fowl' book, this novel will provide a brilliant introduction! A definite 5/5 from me.
