I found this book interesting and un-put-down-able. The situations Colfer makes are realistic and the characters' actions are understandable which helped me to really connect with the story...

Synopsis

Ten thousand years ago, humans and fairies fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear to the fairy families that they could never win, they decided to move their civilization underground and keep themselves hidden from the humans. All the fairy families agreed on this, except the 8th 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.

THE LOST COLONY is an engaging and fun read. Colfer has presented a terrific adventure story with great anchor characters while being able to introduce new ones to help aid or hinder as needed.
