From a strikingly original voice in fiction comes the story of Artemis Fowl, a very unusual hero. Artemis combines the astuteness of Sherlock Holmes with the sangfroid of James Bond and the attitude of Attila the Hun. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules . . .
Full of unexpected twists and turns, ARTEMIS FOWL opens up a riveting world of magic, mystery, and humor.
Artemis Fowl, teenage criminal prodigy and technological genius, has returned. Moldering away at an Irish boarding school, torturing the psychologists, Artemis is thrilled to find out that his father, who has been missing for over two years, might have been spirited away by the Russian mafia in the Arctic Circle. Tearing off to that cold continent with the ever faithful Butler at his side, Artemis is stopped by the fairy police, namely one Captain Holly Short, of the infamous LEPrecons. Forced into fighting with her, Commander Root, and foul-smelling Mulch against a smuggling ring, Artemis gets closer to finding his father than ever. The second book in the internationally best-selling ARTEMIS FOWL series.
