Eoin Colfer - Highfire
From ​the New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series comes a hilarious and high-octane adult novel about a vodka-drinking, Flashdance-loving dragon who lives an isolated life in the bayous of Louisiana—and the raucous adventures that ensue when he crosses paths with a fifteen-year-old troublemaker on the run from a crooked sheriff. In the days of yore, he flew the skies and scorched angry mobs—now he hides from swamp tour boats and rises only with the greatest reluctance from his Laz-Z-Boy recliner. Laying low in the bayou, this once-magnificent fire breather has been reduced to lighting Marlboros with nose sparks, swilling Absolut in a Flashdance T-shirt, and binging Netflix in a fishing shack. For centuries, he struck fear in hearts far and wide as Wyvern, Lord Highfire of the Highfire Eyrie—now he goes by Vern. However...he has survived, unlike the rest. He is the last of his kind, the last dragon. Still, no amount of vodka can drown the loneliness in his molten core. Vern’s glory days are long gone. Or are they? A canny Cajun swamp rat, young Everett “Squib” Moreau does what he can to survive, trying not to break the heart of his saintly single mother. He’s finally decided to work for a shady smuggler—but on his first night, he witnesses his boss murdered by a crooked constable. Regence Hooke is not just a dirty cop, he’s a despicable human being—who happens to want Squib’s momma in the worst way. When Hooke goes after his hidden witness with a grenade launcher, Squib finds himself airlifted from certain death by…a dragon? The swamp can make strange bedfellows, and rather than be fried alive so the dragon can keep his secret, Squib strikes a deal with the scaly apex predator. He can act as his go-between (aka familiar)—fetch his vodka, keep him company, etc.—in exchange for protection from Hooke. Soon the three of them are careening headlong toward a combustible confrontation. There’s about to be a fiery reckoning, in which either dragons finally go extinct—or Vern’s glory days are back. A triumphant return to the genre-bending fantasy that Eoin Colfer is so well known for, Highfire is an effortlessly clever and relentlessly funny tour-de-force of comedy and action.

Eoin Colfer - The ​Eternity Code
Artemis ​Fowl II, criminal mastermind, is now stuck at a boarding school, but that still doesn't stop him from carrying out his dirty plans, and after this, he's going straight. He's 13 years old. He has constructed a supercomputer, the C Cube, from stolen fairy technology, which makes all other human technology obsolete. Though the technology he harnessed is outdated below ground, the cube he creates is still better than any human supercomputer by about five decades. When Fowl meets Chicago businessman Jon Spiro to show him the Cube, things go horribly wrong. Spiro ambushes Fowl, steals the Cube, and almost kills Butler, his bodyguard. However, Fowl manages to revive him with the aid of cryogenics and fairy healing magic, courtesy of Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon squad. Unfortunately, the healing does not work as planned, leaving Butler alive, but fifteen years older, and unable to carry out his duties as a bodyguard. However, his sister, Juliet agrees to help Fowl recover the stolen computer. With the aid of the rest of the LEPrecon team, and kleptomaniac dwarf Mulch Diggums, they break into Spiro's company, Fission Chips, and begin their mission. Spiro is quite a challenging opponent, even for Artemis Fowl. He has almost insane security on everything: Fingerprint scanners, armed thugs, the Mafia – and that's just for starters. But he's still no match for the fairies, and soon Fowl has the Cube back, and is working on yet another scheme. The fairies have discovered by now that Fowl is too dangerous a foe, and fearing their safety, they make Artemis agree to a mind wipe in exchange for getting the cube back. His memory is wiped of everything fairy-related, but he has a plan to return. He gives Mulch Diggums a coin with a hole in it covered with gold leaf. However, it is actually a disc with information to let Artemis revive his memories and knowledge of the existence of the People and will play a vital role in the fourth book.

Not only that, but he must face his deadliest foe yet...his younger self.

Eoin Colfer - Andrew Donkin - Illegal ​(angol)
This ​is a powerful and timely story about one boy's epic journey across Africa to Europe, a graphic novel for all children with glorious colour artwork throughout. From Eoin Colfer, previously Irish Children's Laureate, and the team behind his bestselling Artemis Fowl graphic novels. Ebo: alone. His sister left months ago.

Eoin Colfer - The ​Wish List
Eoin ​Colfer has made millions of fans around the world with his much-loved character, Artemis Fowl, the star of his hugely best-selling series. Now, in a beautifully written novel that is already breaking records in his native Ireland, Colfer introduces readers to a lovable but troubled heroine, who has been given the opportunity for a special kind of redemption. Meg Finn is in trouble-unearthly trouble. Cast out of her home by her stepfather after her mother's death, Meg is a wanderer, a troublemaker. But after her latest stunt, finding a place to sleep is the least of her worries. Belch, her partner in crime, has gotten her involved in the attempted robbery of an elderly man, Lowrie McCall. And things go horribly wrong. After an accidental explosion, Meg's spirit is flung into limbo, and a race begins between the demonic and the divine to win her soul. Irreverent, hilarious, and touchingly hopeful, The Wish List takes readers on a journey of second chances, where joy is found in the most unexpected places.

Eoin Colfer - The ​Opal Deception
The ​evil pixie Opal Koboi has spent the last year in a self-induced coma, plotting her revenge on all those who foiled her attempt to destroy the LEPrecon fairy police. And Artemis Fowl is at the top of her list. After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis had his mind wiped of his memories of the world belowground. But they have not forgotten about him. Once again, he must stop the human and fairy worlds from colliding—only this time, Artemis faces an enemy who may have finally outsmarted him.

Eoin Colfer - The ​Arctic Incident
(Artemis ​Fowl #2) Eoin Colfer's bestselling antihero is back in Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident--the superb sequel to the hyper-hyped Artemis Fowl, shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year. The Arctic Incident sees the slightly older, perhaps slightly more mellow arch-criminal Artemis recovered from his last adventure, richer now that he has his half of a hoard of fairy gold, and happier since the Clarice Starlingesque superfairy Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon returned his mother's ailing mind to full health. But there is still much unfinished business: Artemis Fowl Sr. disappeared when a daring escapade designed to free his family from their criminal--not to mention deeply lucrative--past and move the family's assets into legitimate enterprises went horribly wrong. Held captive by the Mafiya (the Russian organized crime syndicate) for over two years, he has been declared officially dead, but Artemis Jr. knows in his heart (yes, he does have one) that his beloved father is still alive, and he is determined to find him. Meanwhile Captain Short is temporarily on assignment to Customs and Excise as punishment for letting Fowl separate her and her People from their gold and is finding her stakeout duties a little dull. It soon becomes obvious that the pair have need of each other's considerable skills, and before long they are on track for an adventure that will ultimately have far-reaching consequences for both of them.

Eoin Colfer - The ​Supernaturalist
In ​the future, in a place called Satelite City, fourteen-year-old Cosmo Hill enters the world, unwanted by his parents. He's sent to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys, Freight class. At Clarissa Frayne, the boys are put to work by the state, testing highly dangerous products. At the end of most days, they are covered with burns, bruises, and sores. Cosmo realizes that if he doesn't escape, he will die at this so-called orphanage. When the moment finally comes, Cosmo seizes his chance and breaks out with the help of the Supernaturalists, a motley crew of kids who all have the same special ability as Cosmo-they can see supernatural Parasites, creatures that feed on the life force of humans. The Supernaturalists patrol the city at night, hunting the Parasites in hopes of saving what's left of humanity in Satellite City. Or so they think. The Supernaturalist soon find themselves caught in a web far more complicated than they'd imagined, when they discover a horrifying secret that will force them to question everything they believe in. Eoin Colfer has created an eerie and captivating world-part Blade Runner, part futuristic Dickens-replete with non-stop action

Eoin Colfer - The ​Fowl Twins
Criminal ​genius runs in the family... Myles and Beckett are eleven-year-old twins, but the two boys are wildly different. Beckett is blonde, messy and sulks whenever he has to wear clothes. Myles is fanatically neat, he has an IQ of 170, and he wears a fresh suit every day like his older brother, Artemis Fowl. Perhaps you have heard of the Fowl family and their adventures? This Fowl adventure is filled with the most unusual of individuals: an immortal duke, a miniature troll, a nunterrogator and a Police Specialist that's 42% elf. And of course, the Fowl twins - one a certified genius with a criminal leaning, and the other possessing an unusual talent that has not been fully explored... yet! Here begins the second documented cycle of Fowl Adventures. The first in a breath-taking new series from global superstar Eoin Colfer. Set in the multi-million bestselling world of ARTEMIS FOWL.

Eoin Colfer - Sarkvidéki ​incidens
Feladó: ​Colfer, Eoin (kiejtve egyébként „Owen”) Elküldve: tegnap Címzett: A Világ (a föld alatt és felett) Tárgy: Üzenet Artemis Fowl hivatalos életrajzírójától A tények, amelyeket ez a könyv tartalmaz, valóban nem mások, mint tények. Minden egyes szó igaz. Artemis Fowl, az ír bűnöző-lángelme tényleg felfedezett egy föld alatt élő tündérfajt. Tényleg kizsarolta belőlük az aranyukat, és a tündérrendőrség tényleg a nyakában liheg, amiért ceruzaelemeket szállítmányozott a lidérceknek. De ez még mind semmi. Az orosz maffia az Északi-sarkvidéken tartja fogja Artemis apját váltságdíj ellenében, és csak testőre, Butler áll a fiatal bűnöző és egy gonosz pixi között. Amikor katasztrofális helyzet fenyegeti a teljes tündércivilizációt, Artemisnek be kell látnia, hogy néha még egy zseninek is elkél a segítség. Ami talán a legváratlanabb helyről érkezik… Fowl persze mindezt tagadni fogja, ügyvédseregével egyetemben. De hát még nem pereltek be engem, nem igaz? Ha nem tudsz más megoldást, olvass tovább. Csak öltözz melegen. Hamarosan egyre fagyosabb lesz a helyzet…

Eoin Colfer - The ​Legend Of Spud Murphy
Will ​and his brother Marty are doomed to spend their holidays in the libary.

Eoin Colfer - Ja, ​és még valami...
Egy ​angol úriember végeérhetetlen kutatása térben és időben egy csésze tisztességes teáért... Arthur Dent és az egészen figyelemreméltó könyv, a Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak véletlen találkozása nem zajlott teljesen zökkenőmentesen. Arthur bejárta az ismert és ismeretlen tér minden zegét és zugát. Előre és hátra bukdácsolt az időben. Többször felrobbantották, újra összerakták, kegyetlenül bebörtönözték, rémségesen elengedték és sokkal cirkalmasabban sértegették, mint az szigorúan véve szükséges lett volna. És persze mindeközben alapvetően nem sikerült megragadnia az élet, a világmindenség meg minden lényegét. Végül aztán Arthur csak hazakeveredett a Földre. Ez azonban még nem jelenti, hogy elkerülte a sorsát. Ugyanis Arthur esélye arra, hogy egy rendes csésze teát szerezzen, elpárolog a világ óceánjaival együtt, mivel amint megérkezik, megtudja, hogy a Földet fel fogják robbantani... már megint. A Ja, és még valami... Eoin Colfer tollából a Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak trilógia igencsak váratlan, ám örömmel fogadott hatodik epizódja. Szerepel benne egy egész panteon munkanélküli isten, mindenki kedvenc renegát galaktikus elnöke, egy szerelmes zöld idegen, egy bosszantó számítógép és minimum egy igen nagy tábla sajt. Douglas Adams Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak sorozata nagy vidámság forrása lett szerte a világon. A Ja, és még valami... szerencsétlen Arthur Dent földlakó galaktikus kóborlásainak újabb, vicces fejezete a Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak kiadásának harmincadik évfordulójára jelent meg, hogy a legviccesebb sorozatot olvasók új nemzedékével ismertesse meg. Douglas Adams tervezte egy hatodik könyv megírását a sorozatba, ám sajnálatos korai halála 2001-ben megfosztotta ettől a lehetőségtől. Most, az elismert humorista és bestsellerszerző Eoin Colfer, a széles körben ismert (és igencsak félreértett) Artemis Fowl antihős megteremtője kapott felkérést, hogy ismét engedje szabadjára Arthur Dentet és Ford Prefectet térben és időben. Az egy nagy világegyetem odakint, aki nem vigyáz, azzal szinte minden megtörténhet, és általában meg is történik. Hát te is csomagold el a törülköződet, és élvezd az utazást! A teljesen pontatlanul elnevezett trilógia kötetei: • Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak • Vendéglő a világ végén • Az élet, a világmindenség meg minden • Viszlát, és kösz a halakat! • Jobbára ártalmatlan • Ja, és még valami...

Eoin Colfer - The ​Lost Colony
(Artemis ​Fowl #5) 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 eighth 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. Now the tainted time spell is deteriorating and demons are being sucked back into the present space and time. The fairy council is concerned about this and is monitoring any materializations. But when the spells deterioration accelerates, the materializations become unpredictable. Even the fairy scientists cannot figure out where the next demon will pop up. But someone can. Artemis Fowl, teenage criminal mastermind, has solved temporal equations that no normal human should be intelligent enough to understand. So when a confused and frightened demon pops up in a Sicilian theater, Artemis Fowl is there to meet him. Unfortunately, he is not the only one. A second, mysterious party has also solved the temporal equations, and has managed to abduct the demon before Artemis can secure him. Once again, Artemis will have to pair up with his old comrade, Captain Holly Short, to track down the missing demon and rescue him, before the time spell dissolves completely and the lost demon colony returns violently to Earth.

Eoin Colfer - Meglőve
Daniel ​McEvoy egy züllött New Jersey-i kaszinó kidobóembere, akinek napi szinten kell megbirkóznia kellemetlen vendégeikkel, eszelős szomszédjával és egyre súlyosbodó kopaszodásával. De ez mind semmi, egyszer csak tényleg beüt a krach. Egy nap ugyanis rejtélyesen felszívódik orvos barátja, a megbízhatatlan Zeb Kronski, ráadásul egykori barátnőjét, a kaszinós hoszteszként dolgozó Connie-t golyóval a fejében találják. A lágy szívű, de azért keménykötésű Dannek olyan bűntényt próbálnak a nyakába varrni, amit nem is követett el. Miközben megpróbál kibújni az egyre szoruló hurokból, az egyetlen szövetségese egy zsarugyilkos rendőrnő lesz, az ellensége pedig egy kíméletlen drogdíler, és Dan rádöbben, hogy sokkal égetőbb problémái vannak, mint a kopaszodás elleni harca. Az Artemis Fowl-regényeiről ismert Eoin Colfer szellemes és ellenállhatatlan bemutatkozása a krimi műfajában.

Eoin Colfer - Plugged
In ​the tradition of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, Plugged tells the story of Daniel McEvoy, an Irish bouncer at a seedy New Jersey club. Daniel has a problem. Well, he has several, but the worst is that the girl he loves was just murdered. Then more people around him start dying--and not of natural causes. Suddenly Daniel's got the mob, cops, and an unstable lovesick neighbor after him, and the only clue points towards the crooked doctor who gave him hair implants before vanishing into thin air. Luckily--or perhaps unluckily--he has the help of a volatile detective, a permanently hungover army psychologist, and a mischievous ghost. In Plugged, Colfer, beloved by millions for his Artemis Fowl series, has written a hilarious tour de force thriller of head-spinning plot twists, compulsive in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen's best work--a "pitch-perfect comic noir" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Complete with the best banter this side of Elmore Leonard's Detroit, Plugged will leave you shocked, awed, and wanting more.

Eoin Colfer - Artemis ​Fowl (angol)
(Artemis ​Fowl #1) Eoin Colfer describes his new book, Artemis Fowl, as "Die Hard with fairies." He's not far wrong. Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough to believe in all that "gold at the end of the rainbow" nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. But when the time comes to put his plan into action, he doesn't count on the appearance of the extrasmall, pointy-eared Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaisance) Unit--and her senior officer, Commander Root, a man (sorry, elf) who will stop at nothing to get her back.

Eoin Colfer - Artemis ​Fowl és az örökkód
Artemis ​Fowl csodagyerek, Írország szülöttje. Briliáns elméjét bűncselekmények kiagyalásának szenteli. Mikor Artemis felfedezi a föld alatt rejtőző tündértársadalmat, rögtön meglátja benne az aranyfényben pompázó lehetőséget. Egy teljesen új létforma képviselőit vezetheti immár orruknál fogva és zsákmányolhatja ki zseniális trükkjeivel. Hanem Artemis nem tud annyit a tündérek Népéről, mint képzeli. És ez a nemtudás még bajt hozhat rá… Eoin (ejtsd, mint az Owen nevet – egyszerűbb, mint ahogy kinéz, mi?) Colfer Wexfordban, Délkelet-Írországban született és nevelkedett. Az kissé titokzatos, hogyan vált Artemis Fowl hivatalos életírójává. Colfer esküszik rá, hogy a Fowl család ügyvédei keresték föl a megbízással. Artemis Fowl viszont arra esküszik, hogy még csak az Eoin Colfer nevet sem hallotta egészen addig, míg engedélye és beleegyezése nélkül meg nem jelent ez az illegális mű. Rebesgetik, hogy ők ketten találkoztak úgy két évvel ezelőtt, valahol a dublini vár alatt található katakombákban. Azt senki nem tudja, pontosan mi is történt ott, de egy Colfer-közeli forrásunk úgy értesült, hogy a szerző ősz hajjal és tökéletesen pénztelenül került elő a föld alól. Colfer ifjúsági regényei mindazonáltal szédítő sikert aratnak, akár tetszik ez Artemisnek, akár nem. Világszerte toplistákon szerepelnek és halomra nyerik a díjakat. Colfer ma is valahol Írországban él, de a pontos címet nem szeretné nyilvánossá tenni, mivel nem óhajt még egyszer találkozni Artemisszel, illetve testőrével, Butlerral.

Eoin Colfer - And ​Another Thing...
An ​Englishman's continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea . . . Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident. Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate. Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world's oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up . . . again. And Another Thing . . . is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.

Artemis azt hiszi, simán zsebre vághatja őket - de aztán alaposan meglepődik...
