Format: Paperback
Cover:
I think this is my favourite cover of the series. Why? Because it has Butler on it, of course!

Writing:
As with the first book, Colfer yet again gives us his unique style of writing with witty dialogue, humor, and fast pace without any unnecessary descriptions. This series could never have been made what it is without the writing that gave the story life and character.

Setting:
The book is set between the arctics of Russia and back in the fairy city of Haven. Like the first book, I was fascinated with the world of the fairies and loved seeing more of it. The technology however was still a little hard to grasp, nothing that ruined the book for me though.

Plot:
I love Colfer's narration as the story goes back and forth between our heroes and the antagonists and the clash between them. I loved reading about how Holly and Root work with Artemis and Butler to rescue Artemis' father in exchange for Artemis helping them find whoever leaked the information about the LEP. I'll tell you one thing, although I really enjoyed the first book, it gets even better in The Arctic Incident.

Main Character:
In the beginning, Artemis Fowl II was very much the intelligent and cold boy he was in the first book. But as the book progresses and he has to work with Butler, Holly and Root, he starts softening up and even gains friends. The Arctic Incident really showed character development with him as he slowly starts being more of a hero than a criminal.

Villain:
As opposed to the first book, where Artemis was the villain, in this book Artemis was more of a hero and two others characters were the villains. I'm not going to say much about them as that would be spoiling, but they were pretty good antagonists.

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.
