Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony, the fifth sensational book in the gripping Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. Read by the actor Gerry O'Brien.

Has criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl met his match? Until recently Artemis Fowl was the only human to have discovered that fairies do exist. But now a second juvenile genius wants to capture one for scientific study - and not just any old fairy. The newcomer intends to trap a demon, the most human-hating species unknown to man.

Only an ancient time spell separates the demons from mankind - and Artemis must prevent it from unravelling. If he fails, the bloodthirsty tribe will re-launch their quest to wipe humans from the planet... There can only be one winner in this battle of the demons. And it may not be Artemis Fowl...

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford, in the southeast of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international best seller and won several prestigious awards.

Winner of the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award and Children's Book of the Year at the Children's Book Awards.

Shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award.

Great Continuation

I love this series I haven't read it since I was a kid and it's been wonderful to listen to it again. The story is great the world of Artemis Fowl is such a great thing to be a part of. The voices are done pretty well.

Series still going strong

I have been really enjoying this series of audiobooks. I have watched these characters develop and change and I have grown to love them.
The performance was great as always and the pace is good.
I'd like to reiterate this series is for all ages. It doesn't speak down to the reader and is not juvinile, which some books aimed at younger readers can be.
