Book review: Artemis Fowl and the Arctic incident

Name of the book: Artemis Fowl and the Artic incident
Author: EOIN COLFER
Pages: 288
Summary of the book:
This is the second book in the Artemis Fowl adventure series. The Kid criminal genius is only 13 and he has discovered a group of underground people who are like the olden days myths of humans as fairies and elves, dwarfs etc. The discovery of the fairies is covered in the first book. This time Artemis has got information about his lost father who reportedly died in a voyage to Russia at the hands of the Russian mafia. Artemis knows that his father is alive and the mafia is planning on asking a ransom. But before he could go for his objective he is met by Holly Short a LEP (Lower Element Police, that is, police of the underground people), who was kidnapped by Artemis in the last book. Holly brings him to the underground for questioning him on some trading of firearms by goblins and humans. Chaos breaks out as another officer in the LEP goes rogue and is planning on taking on the LEP for his personal gains, conquering Artemis with his bodyguard and butler. The ‘butler’ goes to the underworld’s rescue. Totally like the last book (Artemis Fowl) but with whole lot of adventure and action.

Book Highlight



Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
