Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop


Alright, so I've been trying to decide what to giveaway and it dawned on me that I have the perfect books to giveaway! Since this is St. Patrick's Day, the best Leprechauns I can think of are the elite force of fairies in the Artemis Fowl books by Eoin Colfer.

So, I will be giving away a boxed set of the first three in paperback, wherever The Book Depository ships.

Here's a little bit about Leprechauns in the book:

Captain Holly Short is an elf as well as a cop, a Leprechaun. More accurately, Holly is a member of the LEPrecon, the Lower Elements Police -- a formidable military force with a long, distinguished history. Their magic has been heightened by highly advanced technology, and Holly carries enough firepower to level a mountain.

And here's a description of the first novel, Artemis Fowl:

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.

Fantastic stuff from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl is a rip-roaring, 21st-century romp of the highest order. The author has let his imagination run riot by combining folklore, fantasy, and a fistful of high-tech funk in an outrageously devilish book that could well do for fairies what Harry Potter has done for wizardry. But be warned: this is no gentle frolic, so don't be fooled by the fairy subject matter. Instead, what we have here is well-written, sophisticated, rough 'n' tumble storytelling with enough high-octane attitude to make it a seriously cool read for anyone over the age of 10.

Prize will include a boxed set of the first three books in paperback:

1. Artemis Fowl
2. The Arctic Incident
3. The Eternity Code

These books are some of my absolute favorites and are considered Middle Grade Fantasy.

Fill in the form below to enter. Open to wherever The Book Depository ships. Ends March 20th.
