When reading a book in a series once the next one comes out I am always afraid that I might not like it and get tired with the books, but this is not the case with this series. Each book I read leaves me wanting more yet content to wait till the next comes out. I find myself not being able to put it down once i started and imagining myself in a world such as Artemis'.
When the books began Artemis was a cold-hearted criminal, but once introduced to this fairy world you see his heart thaw and a better person emerge. In the 6th installment of this series not only is there action packed fighting and great intelligence, there is a small attraction between Holly and Artemis which gave the story a little something new. Reading this was a great enjoyment and I thoroughly welcome a 7th book.
