I won the book having never read any of the Artemis Fowl books. I adored the First Impression and after I won, I read it to my 10 and 12 year olds who had never read Eoin Colfer. My boys immediately connected with the book characters. My 12 year old feeling like he is rational Myles and immediately recognizing his brother’s quirkiness in Beckett. My 10 year old was afraid the new series might give away spoilers or visa versa but my 12 year old declares this spoiler free. This was enough for my 12 year old to demand the sequel. My 10 year old was just glad to know the cover art was an actual book scene. My boys are target audience but new Eion Colfer fans and they love everything about this book.
