Okay. If your looking for a book to read or recommended to your siblings or to your children or to any youth out there.
Thy Artemis Fowl is a good one. 🙂
Apparently my brother is following my footsteps towards being a cert bookworm and I certainly cannot just give my serious stuff books.
(Que horror! Im not ashamed of my interest in different genres but drawing lines when it comes to them is on top of my to do list.Ugh. Nu Uh. ).
So if your a struggling sister like me, or a father,mother or what ever you are and you found yourself cornered. Having no idea what to kind of book to give for curious teenagers , these series is a must. ( I sound like a some marketing agent lol. “Hello Sir ,Ma’am Our product for ……” )
Do not worry .Ive read the series myself. Its a rated G.
(I really do sound like one.)
Anyhows. The books focuses the eponymous character of Artemis Fowl II, a teenage criminal mastermind. it is a series of eight fantasy fiction novel by Eoin Colfer in this order:
Artemis Fowl, the main character and anti-hero, and his bodyguard, Butler, kidnap Lower Elements Police (LEP) Captain Holly Short, a fairy elf, and demand an enormous ransom in fairy gold from the People.The story revolves on how Artemis manages to manipulate and avoid the fairies’ desperate attempts to rescue Holly, resulting in the usage of a deadly bio-bomb that wipes out all life forms in near vicinity.
It follows the rescue of Artemis’ father Artemis Fowl I from the Russian Mafia, alongside the battle against the B’wa Kell goblin gang who have allied themselves with brilliant but maniacal, evil genius Opal Koboi.
Covers Jon Spiro‘s theft of the fictional C Cube and its recovery.
Pixie Opal Koboi’s second attempt at world domination, after her first unfruitful attempt. Koboi convinces Giovanni Zito, a fictional environmentalist, to send a probe into the ground,which could lead to the uncovering the fairy world,thrusting the city haven for faries into human clutches.The book follows how Artemis and his now-close friends rush to prevent uncovering of this secret and an encounter which could lead to fairy armageddon.
Artemis brings a demon island Hybras back from “Limbo,” with the help of N°1, a powerful demon warlock.
Artemis’ mother, Angeline Fowl, becomes ill with Spelltropy, and the only cure lies in the brain fluids of the silky sifaka lemur, the last of which Artemis killed when he was ten, in order to procure money to fund the expedition to search his dad. N°1 sends Artemis and Holly to the past, where Artemis must battle his former self to recover the last silky sifaka lemur before the younger Artemis kills it in a business transaction with Damon Kronski, the leader of the Extinctionists.Things get more complicated when Opal Koboi is revealed to be controlling the Extinctionists,feeding on the fluids of many extremely rare animals,in order to grant her special abilities and extra-ordinary prowess in certain fields.The chase finally leads to the two Artemises reaching an agreement,whereupon they are teleported to the future.
Artemis contracts Atlantis Complex, the fairy equivalent of a combination of obsessive compulsive disorder, extreme paranoia, and multiple personality disorder.
Opal Koboi opens the Berserker’s Gate, a portal located on the Fowl estate, behind which dwell the spirits of Fairy soldiers, the last victims of the Battle of Tallite, the final blow in the war that sent the People underground.
(There is also a graphic novel, I found out that children apparently prefers them than reading it.)
