Book Review: Artims Fowl and the Lost Colony

Summary: Ten thousand years ago, humans and fairies fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear that they could not win, all of the faeries moved below ground—all except for the 8th family, the demons. Rather than surrender, they used a magical time spell to take their colony out of time and into Limbo. There they have lived for decades, planning their violent revenge on humans.
 Now the time spell is unraveling, and demons are beginning to materialize without warning on Earth. If humans were to find out about them, all faeries would be exposed. To protect themselves, the faeries must predict when the next demon will materialize. But in order to do so, they will have to decipher temporal equations so complicated, even a great brain like Foaly can't understand them. But he knows someone who can: Artemis Fowl.
 So when a confused and frightened demon imp pops appears in a Sicilian theater, Artemis is there to meet him. But he is not alone. Someone else has unlocked the secrets of the fairy world and managed to solve complex mathematical problems that only a genius could. And she is only twelve years old...

Thoughts: This one actually almost had me crying by the end. Probably one of the most emotional books in the series and (so far) second only to the Opal Deception in my opinion (and only because this one broke my heart when that one made me happy). It was a fantastic adventure and the new cast was great! Especially No1. All of the cast were impressive, I'm always so pleased with the development of the returning crew and the way new characters are melded in seamlessly. 
 The plot was one of the fastest yet with a twist and brilliant scheme around every corner.
 And the writting was brilliant, the witty banter gets better and better with each progressing book. 

Content: Violence. Demons are used here but are not related to any form of religion. And the usual crude humor. All in all, same as before and a must read to returning fans!
