Artemis Fowl #2: The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer

The Arctic Incident (Artemis Fowl, #2)This book is the second one in the series, and I gave it a rating of five out of five. Artemis discovers his father is still alive, but he's been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Meanwhile, the LEPrecon squad, the underground fairy police, suspect the goblins are working with a human to smuggle in batteries. The batteries are being used to power weapons that were supposed to have been destroyed. This means there must be an LEP officer who has gone bad. The LEP suspects Artemis is the human selling batteries, so they bring him in for questioning. They figure out that he is not involved, but they decide to help Artemis with father if Artemis will help them find the smuggler. However, the fairies do not fully understand just how serious they're problem will become. Their whole world may come falling down.

This plot has quite a bit of action, and there are many twists. It turns out the LEP officer who went bad wants to rule over the fairies, and he has a secret helper. I enjoy characters who undergo positive changes, and Artemis seems to be a master criminal with some kindness inside. It's interesting to see how he's changed from the first book to this one. It a curious alliance between Artemis and the fairy police.
