Book Number #5. As always I absolutely loved this book. I’ve been binge reading for my 2017 Book Review Challenge a running theme I’ve noticed in this series is Action.
This book is like if James Bond had a fairy god family or if Timmy Turner was a spy… A refreshing twist for the series is that we were dropped immediately into a situation. Artemis and Butler are tracking down a demon when they notice they aren’t the only ones on the trail.
Holly fresh from quitting the LEP is a P.I./Bounty Hunter with Mulch Diggums. Ironically enough bounty hunters are ridiculed in this world too.
A new layer of the story is added with the introduction of Section 8. A secret sector of the LEP which handles assignments “confidential” and otherwise too “challenging” for standard LEP officers. Holly is immediately recruited.
This particular book does something many tv shows fail miserably at attempting. It provided a leap in time that moved the story along as well as refreshed the series. Jumping a few years into the future made Minerva an appropriate age. (She was 12 and he was 14 which seems inappropriate if a budding romance were to take place) While also giving everyone a brand new start.
I’ve been recommending this series for weeks and I’ll do it again. I’ve been dragged across Europe, To the Arctic and Back and out of space and time continuously. I personally feel a little exhausted but it’s just another day for Artemis Fowl.
