The book is a fantasy novel, obviously because of the fairies in it. Now, if you enjoyed the first Artemis Fowl book, it is more then likely you will enjoy this book. If you did not enjoy the first book, then you won't like this book. Also, if you haven't read the first book, do so before reading this one. It is only reasonable to read the series in order. I know that there are some series where you can read each installment individually without having to read the others, but the Artemis Fowl series isn't like that. Yes, you might be able to sort of understand the plot and concept, but many details are used in the first book that contribute to the second. So, read the first book, if you liked the first book, buy the second one!
Now, it is time for the actual review of the content the book holds. The Arctic Incident is more action packed than the first. There are two main crucial plots going on in the story. One is a plot to overthrow the LEP, and the commander of the operation is unknown. The other is Artemis trying to rescue his father. The LEP and Artemis make a compromise to help each other with their missions. The book is written well, and the vocabulary in it would benefit anybody. The book is fast paced, but that doesn't mean it leaves out details. You will get a clear vision of the surroundings, and be able to keep anybody interested. Overall, I think this is a great book, and would recommend it to people I know. The score is a 10/10, and that is all!
Either way, the cover is still pretty cool, looks more like ice and is really shiny. Pretty neat.
Cut him some slack though, his mommy's back to normal, and ready to start trying to control his life, and he's just discovered that his dad is still alive, and being held for ransom by the Russian Mafiya in a nuclear submarine graveyard. Even geniuses have their limits.
Captain Holly Short isn't having a good time either. After Artemis successfully procured half of the Recon ransom fund in book one, she's been given a "time-out" doing stakeouts for smugglers for the Customs and Excise Department. It seems that someone is organizing the dim-witted goblins to do some good old fashioned gun running, and of course, our intrepid heroine lands herself in the middle of the melee.
Opal Koboi is a new character, a pixie with talents to rival the resident geek Foaly the Centaur, and has absolutely no scruples whatsoever.
Someone has been re-engineering laser guns to work with regular AA batteries, and Holly feels that Artemis is involved. Artemis would rather get along with the process of rescuing his father, but after an interrogation proves Holly incorrect, they team up as an unlikely pair of secret agents to solve both problems.
What follows is action galore, as the book accelerates to warp speed, and even Artemis is forced to be a hero, albeit a puny little one. Each of our favorite characters from book one takes center stage at one time or the other and even Mulch becomes a leading dwarf with a pivotal role.
The story ends with a crazy rescue plan that goes terribly wrong, until girl power again triumphs over rotten luck.
A wonderful follow on from the first book, and an encouraging preview to the third.
