Publisher's Summary

Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafia: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Intriguing from start to finish

Eoin Colfer does it again. His attention to detail paints the fairy world beautifully. You are able to visualize and understand everything he writes. Fairies have always seemed girlish to me. But not now. Eoin Colfer has given me a whole new outlook on the little people. This book is packed with adventure and has a heartwarming touch. Get this book, and enjoy! For children and adults!

If you have not read Artemis Fowl, I recommend starting there first. The first book provides much to the plot of this book. You are sure to enjoy them both.

Well written - well read

Once again, in "The Arctic Incident," Eoin Colfer delivers a very engaging story. This is more of a children's book, but the story is also very interesting from an adult perspective. These books are a bit more involved than the average young adult book, as they deal with more advanced topics involving a more mature Artemis. All in all, a very good listen. It will engage you from the start and you will want to listen all day.
