Evil pixie, Opal Koboi, is back and she's more dangerous than ever. This time she doesn't just want power over the fairy People - this time she wants the humans too.

Captain Holly Short is the only fairy with a hope of stopping her, but as Holly knows, it takes one genius criminal mastermind to fight another. But the 14-year-old genius that Holly is thinking of doesn't even remember that fairies exist. How is she going to convince Artemis Fowl to help her stop Opal? Gold usually does the trick, and this time is should be no different. Or is Artemis changing?

About the Author

Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl is the first title in the mega-selling series - it was one of the most eagerly awaited children's books ever to be published. Described as “Die Hard with fairies”, this adrenaline-packed novel marks the arrival of the Irish teacher-turned-author as a major force to be reckoned with in the popular fantasy genre.

Industry Reviews

Wickedly brilliant * The Independent *

'It's a trap, Commander,' said Holly without hesitation. 'We were the ones at Koboi Labs a year ago. The goblins hold us responsible for the rebellion's failure. If we go in there, who knows what's waiting for us?'

Root nodded approvingly. 'Now you're thinking like a major. We're not expendable. So what are our options, Trouble?'

'If you don't go in, many will die. If you do, you might.'

'Not a nice set of options. Don't you have anything good to tell me?'

Trouble lowered his helmet's visor and consulted a mini-screen on the perspex. 'We managed to get the terminal's security scanners back on line and ran substance and thermal scans. We found a single heat source in the access tunnel, so Scalene is alone, if it's him. Whatever he's doing in there, he doesn't have any known form of weaponry or explosives. Just a few beetle bars and some good old H2O.'

'Any magma flares due?' asked Holly

Trouble ran his index finger along a pad on his left glove, scrolling down the screen on his visor. 'Nothing for a couple of months. That chute is intermittent. So Scalene is not planning to bake you.'

Eoin Colfer

About the Author


Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first developed an interest in writing in primary (elementary) school with gripping Viking stories inspired by history he was learning in school at the time!

After leaving school he got his degree from Dublin university and qualified as a primary school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been translated into many languages. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books (see below). Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

He says, "I will keep writing until people stop reading or I run out of ideas. Hopefully neither of these will happen anytime soon." He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.
