Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Artemis Fowl, a charming but villainous twelve-year-old, takes on the dangerous world of the Fairy People in this unforgettable story, which became a national best-seller and instant cult classic with its hardcover publication in May 2001. The book received tremendous attention and created fans of all ages, around the world.

In this extraordinary adventure, Artemis kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon unit, to help him decode the fairy's magic book, which will lead him to a vast treasure of gold. But these are not the fairies of bedtime stories — they're cunning and dangerous!

Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl opens up a riveting world of fantasy and mystery where anything, literally, is possible.

Synopsis:

One of the most talked-about novels is now available in a mass-market edition. Twelve-year-old Artemis is a millionaire, a genius--and above all, a criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit.

Synopsis:

When a twelve-year-old evil genius tries to restore his family fortune by capturing a fairy and demanding a ransom in gold, the fairies fight back with magic, technology, and a particularly nasty troll.

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "The Opal Deception," teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl is approached by the fairy council to predict when a demon from the Eighth Family colony will materialize on Earth. Because if humans find out about the demons, then all fairies will be exposed.
