“Artemis Fowl: The Lost Colony” by Eoin Colfer

Back of the Book:

One hundred centuries ago, humans and fairies battled in a fierce turf war. When the fairies realized that their struggle was futile, they tucked ethereal tail and retreated underground. Only the demons lingered above, plotting to regroup and resume the attack against humans. But their plot went asunder and these would-be revolters wound up in Limbo, where they stewed for 10,000 years. The spell that holds them, though, is degrading; threatening the perilous peace. Only Artemis Fowl, teenage criminal mastermind, and his old comrade, Captain Holly Short, stand between his people and a violent demonic invasion.

From Booklist:

In this sequel to The Opal Deception (2005), 14-year-old Artemis discovers an unraveling time tunnel connecting demons with the earth. These imps have sworn revenge on humans, and their unpredictable appearances threaten to expose the entire fairy world. As always, Colfer delivers not only continuous action but also witty wordplay and dialogue, understated humor, and plenty of magical technology and gadgetry. A must for kids who have enjoyed Artemis’ previous escapades. Kay Weisman

The very worst thing about this book is that all the warlocks have a “Q” name. Seriously, one of them was named Qwerty. O_o Weird and lame.

The very best thing about this book is the demons! I love that Colfer has introduced demons into his world. :-D It’s easily one of the coolest things about this series.
