Thanks! They sound like an interesting read.
I would like to recommend the Artemis Fowl novels. If I had just one word to describe them, it would definitely be, "Brilliant!". I loved them. It's about a 12 year old criminal mastermind who, although he's a scheming and cunning criminal, he also has feelings we can all relate to, such as, he's mourning over his father's death and he has a strong friendship with his personal bodyguard and friend. I won't tell you too much, but in the 1st book he tries to steal a fortune of gold from the fairies/pixies/dwarfs world. I know it sounds babyish, but these are fairies with attitude! The LEPrecon fairy unit (police force) are soon on his trail after he kidnaps a favoured officer, holly short, and holds her hostage. Once again, it's an absolutely brilliant book, and the author Eion Colfer is one great writer. It's a series that any harry potter lover (such as myself) would enjoy. Bye!
