By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 25 2009
Format: Paperback
This is when the Artemis storyline really picks up and as I enjoyed the novel I also enjoyed the graphic adaptation. Artemis is learning about caring and friendship, but of course that doesn't stop him being a criminal mastermind. The fairy People need Artemis' help with a goblin uprising and in return he wants their help in rescuing his father, what follows is an action-packed adventure full of close calls, magic and double crossing. The dossiers with extra information used in the first book are present again but much less frequently which was a shame as I really enjoyed those. The illustrations are great and colour schemes used throughout are wonderful at capturing moods and atmospheres. A fun book that really captures the spirit of the novel. Fans are sure to enjoy revisiting the original book with all the visual glamour of a graphic novel. This is as far as I ever got with this series and it has made me want to get back to reading the books and I intend to continue reading the graphics as they come out.

I didn't discover the delight that is the ARTEMIS FOWL series until a week ago, when I read ARTEMIS FOWL in one day. So, of course, I had to pick up a copy of THE ARCTIC INCIDENT right away, to see if it was as good as the first. It definitely is, and in my own humble opinion, I think I liked it even better than the first book. There are points throughout the book where Artemis, now thirteen, shows a softer, more vulnerable side that I truly enjoyed. Don't get me wrong, he's still an evil genius, but he's an evil genius with heart, and you can't help but love him.

Now that Angeline Fowl is out of her depression, thanks to some fairy magic from Captain Holly Short, she's sent Artemis back to Saint Bartelby's School for Young Gentlemen in Ireland. Artemis is having quite a large amount of fun flummoxing the school's counselor, Dr. Po, when he gets an urgent message from Butler, his bodyguard/butler/majordomo--it seems that Artemis Fowl the First is alive, being held for ransom by the Russian Mafiya.

Young Artemis, of course, immediately sets out to devise a scheme to rescue his father. It's been almost two years since Artemis Senior was last heard from, and his son is most eager to bring him home. Before he can work out a devious scheme, though, he's visited by none other than Captain Short and her superior, Commander Root, and brought down to Haven City and into Police Plaza. It seems the goblin triad, the B'Wa Kell, have a human counterpart aiding in their smuggling, and Artemis the Second is, quite justly I believe, suspected of being that human.

The fairies soon realize, however, that this time Artemis Fowl isn't the bad guy in this problem.

This is the second book in the "Artemis Fowl" series, and it starts a little after all the things that happened in the first book in the series, that is a kidnapping and general mayhem. "The Artic Incident" just gives us the opportunity of getting to know better quite a few of the characters we already like, and lets us participate in another adventure that curiously enough involves another hostage (of another species this time, though), high-tech gadgets and more mayhem :)

Artemis has changed, but only a little: he still is a willful 12-year-old criminal, intelligent, very rich and intent on having his way no matter what. Despite his opposition, his mother sent him to a boarding school, and he is there when he receives a message telling him that his supposedly dead father is very much alive, and held for ransom by the Russian Mafia. Ironically enough, this time Artemis will need the help of the fairyfolk to rescue his father. The problem is that most of them detest him, especially his former hostage Captain Holly Short. How will Artemis solve this "little" inconvenient?.

As if that problem weren't big enough, there is also another little matter that must be taken into account: the goblin attempt to dominate the fairyworld, with human help. Throw in a lot of deceit, some violence and a certain amount of espionage, stir, and you will have an explosive situation that Artemis must worry about because... how can the fairies help him, even if they wanted to, if they face an overthrow of their government by violent means?.

All in all, I think your kids are highly likely to love this book (that's essential), and you won't die of boredom if you read it to them (hey, that's very important too). Recommended!!!
