Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is truly a millionaire, a genius — and, above all, a criminal mastermind.                         Artemis thinks he has them right where he wants them… but then they quit playing by the recommendations. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit.   These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories; these fairies are armed and dangerous.

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl could possibly be the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. But when the time comes to put his plan into action, he doesn't count on the look 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 absolutely nothing to get her back. Of course, he isn't foolish sufficient to believe in all that"gold at the end in the rainbow"nonsense. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Rather, he knows that the only strategy to separate the little men and women from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive.

Fantastic stuff from beginning to end, Artemis Fowl may be a rip-roaring, 21st-century romp of the highest order. --Susan Harrison 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 nicely do for fairies what Harry Potter has completed for wizardry. Instead, what we have right here is well-written, sophisticated, rough 'n' tumble storytelling with enough high-octane attitude to make it a seriously cool study for anyone over the age of 10. But be warned: this is no gentle frolic, so don't be fooled by the fairy subject matter.
