Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer

Well since the library is in the same building as where the kids have swimming lessons, I thought I would take the time to check this one out from the library. It was convenient since I am only allowed to browse in the kid/teen section when I have one of the kids in tow :)

I have long enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series and this book was more of the same with a little bit of time paradox brain twisters thrown into the mix. As always the writing and story was engaging and never felt slow.

I do find the storyline becoming a bit less compelling with Artemis becoming a goody goody, but still an entertaining series.

A solid 7/10 stars.
