Artemis Fowl is a charming book about Artemis Fowl II, 12 year old leader of a familial criminal empire that he inherited when his father disappeared. He believes that he has found evidence that fairies exist, finds a fairy, and procures the fairy holy book from her. Artemis decodes the book and comes up with a plot to capture a fairy for a ransom of gold. Meanwhile, Captain Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police Recon force (LEPRecon, get it?) has been tracking a troll below ground in the fairy city, Lower Elements. When the troll has been subdued, she goes above ground to perform a ritual to replenish her magic. Before she can complete the ritual, she is taken by Artemis and his butler/bodyguard, Butler (literally, his name is Butler).
Will the LEP pay the ransom? Does everyone survive this rather tense interaction?
I really like this series. The characters are all quirky and funny. Eoin Colfer is a fantastic author that I really enjoy.
9/10, simply because it’s been a long time since I read it. If I read it again, I’ll update my review.
