The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl & the Atlantic Complex by Eoin Colfer

Artemis’s mother is gravely ill. Unfortunately the cure, an endangered lemur, was made extinct eight years ago . . . by Artemis Fowl. Talk about awkward.

What if he could travel back in time, outwit his former self and bring the lemur home? With the right demon warlock, it might be possible.

But we all remember the young Artemis. He was, to put it mildly, a pretty terrible human being, so this won’t be easy.

The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer

The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer

Goblin gangs (exactly as bad as it sounds) are planning an uprising, and it looks like they’ve had human help. Holly Short is convinced it’s her old nemesis, Artemis Fowl.

But, for once, Artemis is innocent. He’s too busy getting his father back from the Arctic Circle, where the Russian Mafia (also very bad) is holding him prisoner.

All Artemis has to do is clear his name, face the biggest criminal organisations in the world and avoid freezing to death. At least it’ll get him out of the house . . .
