Artemis Fowl is a brillaint twelve-year-old genius. His father dead or missing and his mother delusional, Artemis is determined to restore the Fowl family fortune.
How, you ask?
By stealing fairy gold.
Holly Short is a LEPrecon, a Lower Elements Police Reconnnaisance officer. She's on the surface for a routine run and to refill her magic - and not expecting to be kidnapped by a Mud Man (human.)
But Artemis does kidnap her, throwing himself, Holly, his bodyguard Butler, and the entire fairy world into a crazy adventure that had me laughing out loud and unable to put it down! Although the plot will certainly appeal to younger readers, the intelligent, witty writing style will keep older readers amused too.
