Story is still short but good. This time, Lionel's father gets captured by Robin Hood. He sees Lionel, and vows to kill him. Soon, Sherwood is filled (not literally, of course) with bounty-hunters, intent on bringing Lionel's head back to his father. Rowan is bait, after she got caught in a trap set by some bounty-hunters. Guy of Gisborn makes a re-appearance.
In this story, Artemis suffers from Atlantis Complex, a fairy disorder brought on by guilt. He's less intelligent in this book, genius having been blunted and gone at some points. Personally, I think that unless this is setting the stage for the last book to make it more interesting, this book should not have existed. Worst book in series, the fairies and their part just keeping it from disaster.
I was at first surprised by the illustrations. Some things did not look like what I expected, but I quickly learned to enjoy the original story. There's even some interesting extras!
Fairy Realm series by Emily Rodda. I was surprised she could write such a kind, friendly story when she wrote the Deltora series, which is less gentle, with more dangers
Artemis invents the C Cube, made from stolen fairy technology. It is stolen from him when he attempts to sell it to Jon Spiro, a greedy, evil head of a phone company. The C Cube has the potential to reveal the fairy underworld to someone who will not hesitate to do the fairies harm. I think that the plan was genius (well, Artemis is a genius). I think that people who wants books that have genius characters and magic will love this book.
