Description

Thousands of years ago, fairies and humans fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear that they could not win, all of the fairies moved below ground, except for the 8th Family, the demons. Rather than surrender, they used a magical time spell to take their colony out of time and into Limbo. There they have lived for decades, preparing to exact their violent revenge on humans.

Now the time spell is unraveling, and demons are beginning to materialize without warning on Earth. If humans were to find out about them, all fairies would be exposed. To protect themselves, the fairies must predict when the next demon will materialize. But in order to do so, they will have to decipher temporal equations so complicated that even a great brain like Foaly can't understand them. But he knows someone who can: Artemis Fowl.

So when a very confused demon imp appears in a Sicilian theater, Artemis is there to meet him. But he is not alone. There is someone else who has unlocked the secrets of the fairy world and managed to solve complex mathematical problems as only a genius could. And she is just 12 years old.

This could be a stand alone novel

This is arguably the best book in the series, hands down. It is worth going through the series just to get here. But go no further.

Artemis Unbound

I had wondered just how Artemis, Butler and Holly (not to mention Folly and Mulch) could be engaged once again in planet saving mayhem. Book four seemed a fitting book end, but it seems that the glut of fan mail Eoin Colfer received changed his mind.

So Artemis is at it again, and this dimension is not big enough to hold all of the action. Imagine Demons, time travel, life and death action! This installment is a thrill ride, and more mature then previous endevours. Colfer is allowing for his readers aging along with his characters, as a parent, I appreciate that.

I loved this book, listened to it in three days, and can't wait for my son to finish it so we can discuss it in great detail.

Caution: Some of the scene depicted may be too graphic for younger sibs to hear/read.

One Great Audiobook

The Artemis Fowl books are some of the best young adult books around. The narrator does an excellent job with the voices and that's probably why I like them so much.

I find the humor to be right on. It's sort of like the upcoming book, Paraworld Zero, in that the characters use magic to transport themselves to different dimensions.

Something new in this book was the demons. Quite a lot of characterization was done with Number One, which was just wonderful. However, since this is an Artemis Fowl book, I was slightly disappointed at how much the author strayed from Artemis in order to tell us about the other characters.

more fowl fun, another great ride!

Eoin Colfer has established great characters. It was fun to return to them and their relationships , with new ones added to the mix. I so enjoy listening to these performances with my son. The stories are well crafted and Nathaniel Parker is a joy to listen to. Have listened to all the Artemis Fowl books and have gone back for 2nd readings.

Artemis Fowl is loveable criminal

Because of his dealings with the faerie people, Artemis Fowl is growing up and evolving as a compassionate human being. In this book, we’re introduced to another people of the fairie realm – the demons. I especially liked Imp #1. His characterization was fantastic, and he instantly made his own place in the Fowl world. I hope (and hear) that’s he’s coming back in book 7.


There was some loss in the book – but I won’t say what as not to spoil anything – but it definitely heralded in a new level in maturity for both Artemis and his readers.

Another Great Artemis Fowl Book

This, to me, is the strongest of the recent Artemis books, and Nathaniel Parker's reading makes it a great listen.

Another great adventure with Artemis

For work, I read journals and for fun, I read fiction, but for pure laugh-out-loud joy I read Artemis Fowl. Reading this series is like eating chocolate. It is something you do just for the fun of it.

Once again, Eoin Colfer has brought together a cast of characters that seem like old friends as well as introducing some new faces that will (hopefully) become old friends. In this most recent installment, Artemis has met his match in the form of a 12 year old girl and this time his emerging hormones and her pretty curls has his head spinning. But before he has to time to slick back his hair, he is catapulted into a heart-thumping race through time to…of course…save the world.

Nathaniel Parker returns to narrate with masterful skill, presenting accents ranging from Irish to American to Taiwanese to….uh…Gnomish?

This story will have you on the edge of your seat. It has been my favorite Artemis yet and I can’t wait for more.

Great New Twist

I’m not too good following series, but I love this one. Creative, funny, charming, wonderful characters, and the narrator is great. By this time (ha, you’ll get it if you read/listen to the book), Artemis is becoming a really good guy. This one has a great new twist to the fantasy world, a nasty nasty villain, a fun new character, and plenty of the action.

Top class entertainment

'The Lost Colony' is the fifth book in the immensely popular and successful Artemis Fowl series, and after all this time, Eoin Colfer still hasn't lost his touch. Nevertheless I recommend you should not start with this book as Colfer does not explain too much of the background, which might confuse the reader.
Like it's predecessors, this book has a generous mixture of cunning plots and hi tech gadgets, with a large helping of fairy attitude thrown in.
Holly, Artemis and Co. are on top form as usual, a long with a hitherto unseen species of fairy people (demons) and a female genius that could give even Artemis a run for his money.
Prepare for compulsive reading and an absolute inability to lay aside the book until the last page is turned.
The audio book is once again faithfully and superbly brought to life by actor Nathaniel Parker, who has read all the previous books, and whose wonderful voices and interpretations of the characters help make an already guaranteed listening experience perfect.

Schöne, unterhaltsame Geschichte

Wie auch in den anderen Artemis Fowl Büchern unterhält Eoin Coifer seine Leser von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite. Eine Geschichte, die fantasiereich, unterhaltsam und in sich stimmig ist und humorvoll und kurzweilig erzählt wird. Freunde von fantastischen Geschichten ohne viel Gemetzel werden hier sicher auf ihre Kosten kommen. Wenigstens den ersten Band der Artemis-Fowl-Reihe sollte man jedoch vorher gelesen haben, um Zusammenhänge und Verweise in die Vergangenheit zu verstehen.
