5.0 out of 5 stars Very different from the other books in the series but equally fantastic, 12 Mar 2008
This review is from: Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony: 5 (Paperback)
Barcode: 9780141320793

This is Artemis Fowl on an epic scale. Taking longer to get into than the other novels in the series, this is in every way a completely different aspect of the series in its content. In many ways it presents a far more mature scenario, going hand in hand with Artemis's growing maturity as he reaches puberty. The introduction of the demon world adds to this as we follow No1, a young imp shunned by his peers.

Once the book kicks into the swing of things though, it contains some of the best moments of the Artemis Fowl series so far. The break-in to Minerva's house is classic high-octane action in the way Colfer does so well. Minerva herself is a charming character and a fascinating deviation from the classically evil villains of the previous books in the series. In many ways she is basically the female Artemis Fowl and of course, the chemistry between the two is awesome.

All the usual jokes and smart humour is present here, ensuring an immesnely enjoyable read and the conclusion of the novel (last 100 pages or so) is epic in its awesomeness. From the dramatic showdown on the Tapei Tower to a certain scene in the demon world that is heartbreaking in how moving it is, you come to see Artemis in a whole new light.

As a whole, the Lost Colony represents a fascinating new chapter in the series and i can't wait to see where things go from here. Highly recommended!
