Demons are beginning to materialize without warning on Earth. If humans were to capture one, all fairies would be exposed. In order to protect themselves, the fairies must decipher complicated equations to determine where the next demon will appear. Not even the brilliant Foaly can make heads or tails of the formulas - but he knows someone who can: Artemis Fowl.
When a very confused demon imp appears in a Sicilian theater, Artemis is there to meet him. But he is not alone. Someone else has unlocked the secrets of the fairy world.and she is only twelve years old. Now, in a race against time, a newly-reformed Artemis Fowl will have to dip into his bag of dirty tricks if he is to save his fairy friends from his latest nemesis, not to mention a power hungry demon warlord who is poised to invade our dimension with his savage army.
Artemis and the Lost Colony is the fifth book in the Artemis Fowl book series and it provides just as much entertainment as the previous four books in the series have provided. In this installment Artemis has tracked down a demon and when it is due to appear, he barely escapes being pulled into a time vortex (what would he do without Butler?). We find out about goblins and how they have been trapped in a time vortex but now they think they've found a way out so naturally the LEP need to stop it with Holly at the helm.
Slowly over the course of the last four books we have had Holly and Artemis growing closer and closer, learning more about each other and at least gaining respect for each other and becoming friends, despite all odds, this book brings them a heck of a lot closer than they ever expected (not in a romantic way, there's another character in the book for that, one that can rival Artemis on the brains side of things), and it is all done in a well conceived way. The ending of the book came as a good, funny surprise and left me eagerly awaiting the next book.
