The Last of Artemis Fowl

coverOn Tuesday next we have the launch of  Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian, the (very) last of the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. 

It is a series of 8 science fantasy novels for young people starring a teenage criminal mastermind called Artemis Fowl. Artemis has Irish ancestors, the highest intelligence of his generation, an elaborate history of crime, a loyal bodyguard called Butler, and millions of euro at his disposal. But his bold and daring plan to hold a leprechaun, Holly Short of the leprechaun Police, to ransom lands him into a hell of a lot of real trouble!

Eoin Colfer was born and lives here in Wexford. He attended the CBS school in the town where his father was a teacher. He became a teacher himself but later chose to concentrate on writing and has sold millions of copies of this particular series. I wish him well.
