Artemis Fowl

By Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl is a 12-year-old genius. His family has been part of the criminal world for years and the time is now right for a major battle with powerful fairies who live underground. And they are angry! Artemis Fowl and his many adventures were hugely popular a wee while ago but I bet that with the release of the movie later this year, these fantasy novels will be back in high demand.

It goes without saying that reading the book first will enhance your viewing of the movie.

Magic, fantasy, adventure, thriller, fight for survival. Everything is included in this series of books. Check out your local library or shout yourself a copy of the book. You won’t be disappointed as it is an excellent read. Or you can read the graphic novel versions of this series too. I still have a signed copy of the original book tucked away safe on my bookshelf. Really looking forward to this movie.

W.A.R.P. Book 1
The reluctant assassin
By Eoin Colfer

“It all began with the F.B.I and W.A.R.P (Witness Anonymous Relocation Programme) Hiding witnessess in the past to protect the future – until now…”

What a cool concept. Riley is from Victorian London apprenticed to the assassin, Albert Garrick
A wormhole monitored by the FBI provides an escape route for their latest victim but also for Riley and they end up in the 21st century in present-day London.
But Garrick is not far behind.
Enter Chevie Savano, the FBI’s youngest and most impulsive special agent. The chase begins but just who is chasing who and can Riley and Chevie stop Garrick from returning to the past with the knowledge and power and therefore the ability to change the world forever.
I have this book in front of me have been distracted from writing this post as I just want to get stuck in. The title of chapter one is “The killing chamber” so you know you just want to find a good place to curl up and start reading. Do look for it in your library or local bookshop. It is out there waiting for you!
