Artemis Fowl is a prodigy, a genius. His mother is ill, his father is missing and Artemis has plans. Criminal plans and the money to fund his ventures. Now he has discovered a fairy civilization below ground and sees this as a brand new opportunity for exploitation. The thing is Artemis doesn’t know as much as he thinks he does. This isn’t going to be as easy as he thought and what he doesn’t know could hurt him. When he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police, Artemis almost triggers a cross species war. All of this and he is only 12.
Boy billionaire, evil genius, what’s not to love. Throw in a determined fairy police officer, a technically brilliant but grumpy centaur and a dirt eating dwarf with a gas issue and you have a really fun read. Wonderful characters, plots and machinations.
