- Author Bio
With all the hallmarks that made the Artemis Fowl series so popular, this hilarious spinoff adventure stars Artemis’ younger brothers, along with a nefarious nobleman, a shadowy nun, and a fairy intern, and a maverick troll.
One week after their eleventh birthday, the Fowl twins—scientist Myles, and Beckett, the force of nature—are left in the care of house security (NANNI) for a single night. In that time they befriend a troll who has clawed his way through the earth’s crust to the surface. Unfortunately for the troll, he is being chased by a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun, who both need the magical creature for their own gain, as well as a fairy-in-training who has been assigned to protect him. The boys and their new troll best friend escape and go on the run. Along the way they get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened, killed (temporarily), and discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists between a pair of twins.
SPIN-OFF TO BLOCKBUSTER SERIES: The Artemis Fowl series has topped all the bestseller lists—The New York Times,USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and BookSense. The series sold more than nine million copies in the US alone before the Walt Disney movie was released in August 2019.
A NEW TAKE: This marks Eoin Colfer’s long-awaited return to his best-selling series, featuring characters who were introduced in THE TIME PARADOX and came into their own in THE LAST GUARDIAN.
NOT YOUR USUAL FAIRIES: Eoin Colfer brilliantly turns fantasy and folklore upside down in this series, as he did in Artemis Fowl.
