artemis fowl- first book-

This book is great. It has all the elements of a book that a 14-year old boy would read. it is funny,witty and a 14year old genius outsmarting adults. This book is all about how Artemis finds out about a whole new species living in the centre of the world. He then finds out  how they have magic powers to convince humans to do watever they like or heal themselves or others. When the magic runs out they have to plant an oak tree seed into the ground near a river to replenish their powers. Artemis finds this out and kidnaps one in the middle of it’s ritual and holds her ransom. i’m not going to break the story so if you want to find out more READ IT!

Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver

This is the first book of a great series.The introduction gets you in- it isn’t a very long book. It’s very interesting to read since starting from the first page of the book you’ve already been sucked into the world that the author has created.
