Product Description

Dressed up with a slick new look, young evil genius Artemis Fowl is back! One teenage criminal mastermind. A legion of deadly fairies with mega firepower. Seven cracking thrillers to take you by storm! Twelve-year-old Artemis is a brilliant criminal prodigy. But when he double-crosses a legion of rowdy, violent fairies, he’s bitten off more than he can chew. For a start, leprechaun weaponry is much more advanced than our own. And to make matters worse, he’s kidnapped a hard-as-nails heroine from the Leprechaun Police Department, whose commanding officer will stop at nothing to get her back. Even a ruthless genius like Artemis Fowl is going to have a riot on his hands. Stand back! These fairies are dangerous!

“Artemis is a brilliant creation.” Anthony Horowitz

“Fast, funny and very exciting.” Daily Mail

“Folklore, fantasy and high-tech wizardry… Hugely entertaining.” Observer

Eoin Colfer

18060 eoin colfer 206752

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 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. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books. Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

Children are guaranteed a treasure-trove of riches from Ireland’s top storyteller. From the hi-tech fantasy of Artemis Fowl to his brilliant action thrillers like The Supernaturalist, Eoin’s books are brimming with action, invention and laughs! Less confident readers can chuckle over the easy-read adventures of naughty brothers Will and Marty, while those who love fairies and fighting are in for a treat with six unstoppable bestsellers from the hit Artemis Fowl series.

    These books are by far the best! They are AMAZING!I have read all the books in the collection several times and love Captain Holly Short. I know deep down she has a kind caring heart by the first impression was defiantly sassy!

    I have a mixture of emotion whenever I read these book I can never put them down and they leave me on my toes. I feel; love, hate, tense, suspense, happiness, sadness, pain, great desperation and relief! They are filled deeply with humour, adventure, thrill, mystery, fantasy, magic, crime. I just don’t know how Eoin Colfer does it. Every time i read them it just blows my mind. I recommend, no, insist you read these books! A must have for the top of everyones list!!!
