Review: The Arctic Incident (Artemis Fowl #2) by Eoin Colfer


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS.COM:
Artemis Fowl receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. Now, instead of battling the fairies, Artemis must join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.
MY TAKE:
This book is part 2 in the galley I received from NetGalley.

Picking up a year after the first book, The Arctic Incident finds Artemis Fowl trying to save his father from the Russian Mafiya. But before he does, he has to work together with the fairies to stop a rebellion that could make saving his father pointless.

I was looking forward to reading this and this book did not disappoint. Artemis remains as witty as ever and even better, he shows his vulnerability as well. Captain Holly Short, whom I didn't like in the first book, started to grow on me.

As usual, the plot is awesome. Not exactly unexpected, but interesting enough for me to continue reading. Mr. Colfer's writing style propelled the book forward, so to speak.

Thanks to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. Interesting characters.
  2. Fast-paced story.
  3. Original concepts.
THE BAD:
  1. The book is kind of short and packs maybe a little too much in one book.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
When would people learn that a mind such as his could not be dissected?
READ IT IF:
  1. You liked the first book.
  2. You like war movies and books.
  3. You like books with intelligent characters.
