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.

Another great adventure

Out of the five books I read as a child this was the book that I remembered the most. Listening to it now, it is still one of my favourites. Number 1 is a brilliant addition to the storyline and seeing Artemis in a new light is very welcomed

I'm a 40 year old man... and a fan of Artemis Fowl

My wife read these as a kid and recommended them to my daughter so I listen now when I'm running so I know what they're on about. Great bits of escapism, lost interest a little in the last one but really enjoyed this one.

The ramblings of a fan.

Out of the artemis fowl books I have listened too so far this has to be my favorite after arctic incident. This book adds so much development to artemis and a lot of the characters in a whole. I am really looking forward to starting the next one

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.
