Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident [Unabridged].

by Eoin Colfer

Condition: See description


New York, NY Random House: Listening Library, 2002. Audio Cassette Four Audio Cassette Tapes in Excellent [Like New] condition, housed in a black plastic tray, which shows a couple of creases, all in a Heavy Card Stock Box, which shows very minor wear and a couple of faint creases near one corner. Overall, Near Fine. Read by Nathaniel Parker. Audio Book: Cassette Tapes. Artemis, now thirteen, shows a softer, more vulnerable side than in the first book of the series. He's an evil genius with heart, and you can't help but love him. Now that Angeline Fowl is out of her depression, thanks to some fairy magic from Captain Holly Short, she's sent Artemis back to Saint Bartelby's School for Young Gentlemen in Ireland. Artemis gets an urgent message --it seems that Artemis Fowl the First is alive in Russia, being held for ransom by the Russian Mafiya. Young Artemis, of course, immediately sets out to devise a scheme to rescue his father. It's been almost two years since Artemis Senior was last heard from, and his son is most eager to bring him home. Before he can work out a devious scheme, though, he's visited by none other than Captain Short and her superior, Commander Root, and brought down to Haven City and into Police Plaza. It seems the goblin triad, the B'Wa Kell, have a human counterpart aiding in their smuggling, and Artemis the Second is, quite justly I believe, suspected of being that human. The fairies soon realize, however, that this time Artemis Fowl isn't the bad guy in this problem. What follows is an action-packed story of good versus evil below ground, with deceptions, backstabbing, and revenge taking center stage. As Holly, Root, Butler, and Artemis race to save Haven City from being destroyed, some of the same characters from the first book make appearances--Foaly, Mulch Diggums, Cudgeon, and Captain Trouble. There's also a new foe in THE ARCTIC INCIDENT, Opal Koboi, to be dealt with. I highly recommend the ARTEMIS FOWL series to anyone who enjoys fast-paced fantasy fiction; it's thoroughly entertaining and will not be soon forgotten.

Twelve-year-old villain, Artemis Fowl, is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!

  "Enjoyable even as an adult. This is a modern fantasy book about a genius pre-teen boy and his exploits to break the written language of the Fairies. Although his intentions are somewhat evil by admission, his actions clearly indicate that he has a good side yearning to come out. "
