I Wish I’d Read…Highfire, by Eoin Colfer

This article is part of the ‘I Wish I’d Read’ series, celebrating the many awesome books I missed out on thanks to a particularly stressful year and an extended hiatus.

I’ve always wanted to read Eoin Colfer’s famous Artemis Fowl series with its epic magical world and the kind of extensive world building that takes a reader through an eight book series. When Highfire popped up as a review option, I jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, 2020 got the better of me and I was never able to get to it. The premise is compelling, promising dragons and magic amidst modern day rural America. It sounds like a solid mix of humor and dark characters, and I’m still bummed I wasn’t able to get to it in January. I’ll definitely be adding Colfer to my 2021 reading list. Read more about the author and book below, or purchase a copy for yourself. And of course, a big thank you to Harper Perennial for the free review copy!

NOTE: I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
