Favorite Quotes:  But soon Mulch Diggums began to crave the old notoriety, and his pilferings grew larger.  Gold bars, goose-egg diamonds, or pit bull terriers, if he was really famished.

Holly cupped a hand around one pointed ear.  "Hey, Mulch, if you listen really hard you can just about make out the sound of nobody giving a hoot.  From what I saw, you were living pretty well on LEP gold."

Of course, you should never say something like that, especially when you're an arch villain.  It's just asking for trouble.

Synopsis (PBS):  Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he suddenly receives an urgent video e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from his father, who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by Captain Holly Short of the Leprecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Review:  I love this series.  I really do.  There are many of the same characters as before and I've found one I like almost as much as Mulch.  Foaly, the centaur with the genius IQ, is hilarious.  While I did like book one better than two, book 2 is still very good.  I've already started book three and can't wait to see if it's as good as these were.

Rating:  9.5 / 10
