When it became clear to the fairy families that they could never win, they decided to move their civilisation underground and keep themselves hidden from the humans. All the fairy families agreed on this, except the eighth family, the demons. The demons planned to lift their small island out of time until they had regrouped and were ready to wage war on the humans once more. However, the time spell went wrong, and the island of Hybras was catapulted into Limbo, where it has remained for ten thousand years. Now, the tainted time spell is deteriorating and demons are being sucked back into the present space and time. The fairy Council are naturally concerned about this and are monitoring any materialisations. When the spell’s deterioration accelerates, the materialisations become unpredictable. Even the fairy scientists cannot figure out where the next demon will pop up. But someone can. Artemis Fowl, the teenage criminal mastermind, has solved temporal equations that no normal human should be intelligent enough to understand. But Artemis Fowl is no normal human. So when a confused and frightened demon pops up in a Sicilian theatre, Artemis Fowl is there to meet him. Unfortunately, he is not the only one. A second, mysterious party has also solved the temporal equations, and manages to abduct the demon before Artemis can secure him. This is a disaster for the fairy People, because this demon was no ordinary fairy. He was the last demon warlock, and as such held the key to the survival of the entire demon race. It is up to Artemis and his old comrade Captain Holly Short to track down the missing demon and rescue him before the time spell dissolves completely and the lost demon colony returns violently to Earth.

Artemis, Butler, Holly, Mulch, and Foals reunite after Artemis encounters a demon from the island Hydras, and Holly and Mulch capture the pixie fish smuggler Doodah Day. Foals tells them after the Battle of Taillte, the war for land against fairy and human, the demon fairy family sent themselves out of time on the island Hydras, and that on their island their time can be anything on ours. The time spell is crumbling, and demons are appearing on earth without warning. If the humans discover the demons, they will inevitably uncover the rest of the fairies. Artemis and his now friends go after the demon N°1, who finds out that he is actually a demon warlock, and has extremely dangerous powers. N°1 is kidnapped by child prodigy Minerva Paradizo, whom they encounter multiple times when trying to stop her research. Minerva intends to present N°1 to humans to win the Nobel Prize. She eventually lets go of her project and joins them after Billy Kong, her security guard, "opens the Trojan Horse", also known as revealing the traitors he planted at the Paradise Chateau. Artemis, Holly, N°1, and Qwan, a demon warlock that N°1 frees from a gargoyle spell that turned him into stone, travel through time and space to Hydras, which Artemis had planned to get rid of with the live bomb Billy Kong had given Holly to annihilate the demons in Hydras, due to his belief that his brother was killed by a gang of demons. In Hydras, the pack leader Leon Abbot (N'Zall) and his army of demons fight Artemis and his friends. They knock Leon unconscious and create a bomb explosion powerful enough for them to use its energy - converting it into magic, using Holly, N°1, Qwan, and Leon Abbot's magic (which he gained from fusing with Qweffor, an apprentice warlock) and Artemis' stolen magic to send the island back to earth, where 3 years have passed because of the time spell. Artemis and Minerva are now noted to be very close in age. The book ends with Holly finding out that Mulch has recruited Doodah Day, and Artemis finds out that he is the brother of toddlers. تاریخ نخستین خوانش: روز هفتم ماه آگوست سال 2017میلادی عنوان: آرتمیس فاول و مهاجران گم شده؛ نویسنده: یون کالفر؛ مترجم شیدا رنجبر؛ چاپ پنجم 1393؛ در 592ص؛ شابک 9789643694418؛ ویراستار مژگان کلهر؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان ایرلندی - سده 21م آرتمیس فاول، بالاخره یک رقیب پیدا می‌کند؛ دختری نوجوان از وجود جن و پری‌ها با خبر می‌شود و تصمیم می‌گیرد یک «دیو» را به دام بیندازد؛ اما مبارزه به این دو رقیب محدود نمی‌شود؛ در این میان، تنها چیزی که تا کنون بشر را از شر دیو‌‌ها در امان نگه داشته طلسمی از دوران باستان است که آرتمیس باید هر طور شده جلوی باطل شدن آن را بگیرد، وگرنه این موجودات خون‌خوار، نسل بشر را نابود می‌کنند؛ این بار شاید آرتمیس پیروز این مبارزه نباشد!؛ تاریخ بهنگام رسانی 11/08/1399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا. شربیانی

Better written and with more intelligent contemplation of elements like magic and technology, this is a series that readers of all ages can enjoy. By book five, we’ve been introduced to a wide and fun cast of characters, and unfortunately had one of our good friends die. There is no over-arcing plot between books, though there are certainly continuing themes and characters, so a reader can pick up the series at any point. I’m a big fan of starting at the beginning, but this is a series that could actually be read from any book. While I think this book is much more complex and thought-out than many books I’ve read, I did feel that in comparison with the rest of the series, this book just wasn’t as good. I was excited when I got it, drove an hour away to the nearest bookstore to find it, started reading right away, and then I ended up putting it down later that day in favor of watching Veronica Mars . It just didn’t keep my attention like the other books had, and the spot where I drifted away for about two weeks was the same spot that my editor drifted away at too. Still, if you like the other books, you’ll want to read this one and not give it up. The second half of the book is far more interesting and the ending made me jump up and down with joy for what is being set-up for the next book. It’s kind of nice to have an Artemis Fowl book that I’m sure will have a sequel, since the last few books have ended on more questionable notes. Maybe that was part of the problem with this book, because the last book ended on a note that didn’t *need* a sequel, so this book didn’t have as much of a place to start off from.

    4.5* Crikey! How far can Eoin Colfer’s imagination go? Pretty far it seems :O) This fifth instalment is another Crazy adventure, mixing the ‘Mission Impossible’ elements I’ve come to absolutely love - the way Artemis Fowl puts together those plans of his!!! - with time travel! Yep, it is totally mental. Add our beloved characters (with Artemis starting to feel the effects of puberty!), a few new ones (Number One wins my vote) and the whole thing becomes one of the best in the series!

Maybe it's Butler's sass or Holly and Artemis working so well together. Or Maybe it's Artemis becoming more human and acting like a teenager a bit? Who knows. Just know that I'm enjoying this whole entire thing. Artemis is going through something he can't control: Puberty. It's honestly hilarious to watch him in this book because he's all about being in control. So since he's getting older and his body is changing he really wants to be in control still. Or needs to be. Yet, Butler clearly states if he can be in charge of his hormones he would be the first. I especially loved Artemis and Minerva interacting with one another because they are both geniuses. Then there's Butler who I feel more tuned with because he always sounds so confused when Artemis tries to explain things that he doesn't understand. Like, I am right there with you buddy. In the end, I'm dying to see how he's going to react to being a big brother now. _______________________________ Wow, it has been a while since my last Artemis Fowl book. I honestly thought I finished this series but I guess I haven't. The Lost Colony was pretty interesting since it's been a while since I dove into this series. In it, we are still witnessing Artemis and Holly trying to save the world. Yet, at this point they are pretty down about not being super successful. Or successful at all. It was a lot of fun diving back into this duo. I just love Artemis and Holly working together - they just make me smile. Besides them, we get to meet another lovely genius - Minerva! Now she was a delight and I definitely laughed when her and Artemis were together. Now that I know that I haven't finished this series.. I am determined to that this month/year. Bring on the next adventure guys!

    I was ecstatic when i bought the new release just last year! Here i thought that there would never be another person who could match artemis fowl and here pops up a Pretty, 12 year old French Prodigy! Who Artemis seems to be really attracted to! I must say that i am very excited for these two geniuses! A girl version of Artemis Fowl named Minerva! what a coincidence in names! The girl seems to be definately artemis' match!

Well, Minerva, at this age is just like Artemis when he was 12 years old, always thinking about power and fame. I pitied Artemis at the end of the story.. because he just missed almost 3 years of his supposed to be life... So... 12+3=15... Minerva and Artemis are supposed to be of the same age now!!! I am quite positive that they will both work together at the last book! and i am really really excited for it!

    I like Eoin Colfer - he has some cracking ideas. However, he is one of the laziest writers I've read in a while. His work would be so much better if he spend a little time on it; he has the manner of a 10 year old boy with a brilliant idea, desperate to gush it all out before it's lost. There is no excuse for a children's book to be shoddy. I'm not ashamed of reading children's books, but I do wish authors would try a little harder.

I love Number One, he is so lost yet feeling alone despite being rare he still believed he have something so much more and yes, HE DID ! I truly feel him :'))))) “Just what we need," moaned Holly. "Artemis Fowl with magical powers.” This book got me mind blow with plot twist and each shocking moments of how I am forgetting that Artemis is a real genius on game board. Oh God, he is just so whoa...I LOVE HIM EVEN MORE THROUGHOUT THE SERIES <333 Yeeeaaass and yeaaaaasss the cliffhanger at the end book really got me hyped for the next book !!!!!!

There are times they are in Europe, after that, they are in Asia then they find themselves in the outer space. Thank God. The shocking cliffhanger saves the day!

    "Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony" is a great book! If you have read the other books in the series this is a great continuation of them. I think this book is good for many reasons. First of all, it is filled with humorous and witty comments, even in the most dire situations Eoin Colfer finds room to fit them. You will find yourself laughing outloud to yourself when reading.

I also love the characters in this book, you really feel as if you know them and they are each so differents and all very likeable. So if you are looking for a humorous and adventurous story, this would be a great one to check out.

    What's weird is that this was the first of the series I'd unwittingly picked up from the library at a whim– only to devour it in one go and proceed to buy all four preceding books the very next day.

    By this book, this series has started to feel "stretched". We have a saying in Greek about this kind of thing, "to pull it by the hair", when a creator decides to keep a series/ a TV show/ etc. going, even though they don't really have the inspiration or will to do so anymore (in this case: "Eoin Colfer is pulling the Artemis Fowl series by the hair!"), so they just introduce increasingly ridiculous plot points.

For a prime example of this, see JK Rowling's "The Cursed Child", which is a JOKE. Enough said. So like I said, this series has begun to be pulled by the hair with the introduction of YET ANOTHER problem that might expose the Fae world to the humans. So many in the approximately 2 years that Artemis has known them. If fae-exposing issues arise so often, how did they deal with them before Artemis, to whom they run asking for help every time? The problem in this book wasn't even caused by him at all, unlike the previous ones. Also: Holly quit the LEP at the end of the previous book, but is recruited at a very similar service at the beginnng of this book, so basically nothing changed even though her quiting the LEP was a big deal in the previous book. Hey, all the AF books were written in a very simplitic, dare I say lazy writing style, but this one is the one where the plot got a bit lazy too. I'm kind of attached to the characters now, so I'll finish the series, I want to know how it ends. But let me just say that I've already started the next book and it seems even worse than this one. Sigh.

    Reading too many Eoin Colfer books too close together doesn't seem to help in appreciating them.

    In this installment, we see Artemis coming to the aid of demonkind, the seventh fairy race that has become lost in time due to a warlock spell gone wrong. The Artemis Fowl series continues to get more complex with each book. The time travel element is surely confusing to its younger readers. And now we have an aged Artemis with a stronger connection to Holly Short. Can't wait to see their continuing adventures together.

This book is such a wild ride, with a girl genius to rival Artemis (hormones and puberty is a killer bro), more Butler, more Holly, more Foaly, more Mulch, and on top of all the fantastical and brilliant things, they added demons into the mix. Just amazing. Oh also totally understand the spin off series now! Just had to wait 5 books for the reveal. Only 3 books left to go, and I have no clue what's going to happen from here, because some things have changed and I can't wait. -> also can we talk real quick about the movie that's coming out this year, because why is the film industry so dumb? Can't wait to throw myself into that and try and know some sense into some producers because what are they doing and why do they think it's right? The casting looks awful, they changed the plot, the made Root a female, Butler's black, and Artemis looks like he's 8 not 12. What were they doing throwing something down a hole, why do they think fairies took Artemis's father when he didn't, I just, maybe the movie will be better than the trailer looks but I have such low expectations. Plus they moved the release date back when it was supposed to come out last year, so maybe they did some reshoots and fixed some things after the feedback on the trailer. We can only hope, because otherwise: d'arvit. ---- Was this a 4 star or a 5? I don’t know yet, let me think on it some more. Maybe somewhere in between. It’s late, so RTC

    This is where the Artemis Fowl series starts to go in a downward spiral. I don’t know if it’s because I read them when I was older (considering they were published when I was older obviously in comparison to the first 4 books) or it’s because they really did get a worse than the first four. I read this one twice - didn’t really like it much the first time around, but liked it a lot more after having forgot what happened and re-reading it.

I read this one twice - didn’t really like it much the first time around, but liked it a lot more after having forgot what happened and re-reading it. The storyline is nice; it flows well, and a ton of new characters of introduced, so instead of only the same original characters recycling the same sarcastic remarks, snide comments and sometimes really bad humor, there are more characters to distribute among! ...I get the sarcasm and humor, but it’s just not believable that everyone has the same smart-aleckyness. I have mixed feelings about Minerva - whereas it was nice for there to be someone of Artemis’s age range to challenge him, Jon Spiro from book 3 made much a better “villain”. He did break down at the end, when Artemis naturally outsmarted him, but Minerva was pretty childish and bratty throughout the entire book. For the child genius she is supposed to be, the child part is emphasized so much more. I kind of get it - she hasn’t lived long, doesn’t have much experience in life, etc… but I would expect a little more maturity from someone who’s supposed to have a brain. I didn’t really develop any connection with her, so (view spoiler)[ I don’t really care that she doesn’t play any role in the subsequent Artemis Fowl books. In a literary sense, that’s a pretty bad thing, because the ending insinuated that we’d see more of her, maybe see how she grows alongside Artemis (despite becoming older than him by the end due to Artemis's time lapse in demon land). But no, that doesn’t happen. And I’m okay with it (hide spoiler)] . Billy Kong was a hilarious character - I loved how they messed with his mind. It was different and kind of slightly evil of them, but he did literally ask for it. In Taiwan, the plot twist comes along: (view spoiler)[ Butler fails to save Artemis. A Butler failed in his duty. And I think that was awesome. It’s not catching when everything works out conveniently for the heroes, and that usually happens in this series (as in most books). So Butler failing was awesome. And Artemis has to deal with things on his own (sort of.. Holly was with him… Someday he’s going have to handle strenuous physical situations all by himself) (hide spoiler)] . No 1 was a cool character too, but he became the generic wisecrack so resplendent in the series that I didn’t care all that much about him. He’s pretty much there to make things even more convenient in future books. Overall, it was decent. I think I initially gave it 3 stars, but after re-reading decided it maybe deserved to go up a notch since it was better than I remembered.

    The Artemis Fowl books have continued to be a great series to read. For some reason I always start reading these books with a bit of reluctance because they are, after all, kids books.

A few pages into the book though I am always hooked again; this continues to be the case. In this book Artemis calculates that the time warped island that demons live on is slowly unraveling. He is attempting to prove his calculation by detaining a time warped demon. With a demon as proof he is hoping that fairykind will take him seriously and take action to save the demon race. When he shows up at the next demon appearance he finds that he is not he only one who has made calculations about demon appearances. A girl Artemis's age, name Minerva, kidnaps the displaced demon in hopes of completing research on the demon and hopefully winning the Noble Prize. Of course everyone's plans end up collapsing and chaos ensues. The book is action packed and non-stop intellectual fun from the beginning to the end. The new characters introduced are wonderful. Minerva is the perfect female counterpart to Artemis and No.1, who revels in his new found English vocabulary, is a hoot. The whole gang is back and ready to deliver. Holly is in for a lot of action and Foaly has a whole new bag of tricks in his hands..er...I mean hoofs. Artemis is taking his turn as a "good guy" seriously and his new outlook on life really endears him to the reader. The addition of Minerva as a possible love interest is very interesting. Finally Artemis has someone to laugh at quark jokes with. This is another fun book that further enhances the Artemis Fowl series. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    While I very much love this series, I had found it difficult to finish this book when I read it. I got half way through and just stopped, which is weird because this is my second favourite series. But I do feel that there was just a little too much going on for me, and a lot of new characters. And, on a personal side, I didn't at all enjoy Minerva. She didn't even grow on me like characters usually do. But there are some interesting developments that are key in book too and definitely worth the While I very much love this series, I had found it difficult to finish this book when I read it.

    I’ve been trying to work my way through Artemis Fowl, because it’s been years since I read this series and it’s the one that got me into reading when I was a kid. And I’m realizing now upon finishing this book that I don’t think I got to this book when I was younger, because I remembered nothing about it. But that was nice, because it’s adding another element to this series that has always had a special place for me. It may be for a younger crowd, but it’s so incredibly entertaining.

But that was nice, because it’s adding another element to this series that has always had a special place for me. It may be for a younger crowd, but it’s so incredibly entertaining. The Lost Colony might be one of my favorite Artemis Fowl books so far, even though I really like anti-hero Artemis from the first couple. He’s still brilliant, and he’s still the somewhat evil mastermind that we’ve come to love over the course of the series, but other characters like Holly Short have become good influences on him. I really liked Minerva as a foil and equal to Artemis, especially as he’s growing up and becoming more interested in girls. But what really got me was the ending, because it was just fantastic. There was time travel, paradoxes, and magic, three things that I really love. Without giving anything away, the ending was a perfect example for the classic Doctor Who quote in the fact that it was very “wibbly wobbly, timey wimey”. I can’t wait to continue this fantastic series.

    I really like this book because it has a lot of action and adventure which are two of my favorite genres in books. My favorite part of the book was when Artemis fell through the a time tunnel and became young again. Then at the end he met up with his friend he was separated from a long time ago. The barely recognized each other. I recommend this book to people who like action and adventure.

    (B+) 88% | AGES 13+ | Thank goodness these books are short....is what I said four books ago. Now, it’s like: Holy moly this is such a wild roller coaster, when does it end? This wasn’t as good as the fourth book, but I really enjoyed it! I especially enjoyed the ending. I’m always down for a good ending and this book delivered! Welp, I’m off to read the next one now. I mean, I’ve made it this far. *thumbs up*
