When Artemis Fowl's mother contracts a life-threatening illness, his world is turned upside down. The only hope for a cure lies in the brain fluid of the silky sifaka lemur. Unfortunately, the animal is extinct due to a heartless bargain Artemis himself made as a younger boy.
Though the odds are stacked against him, Artemis is not willing to give up. With the help of his fairy friends, the young genius travels back in time to save the lemur and bring it back to the present. But to do so, Artemis will have to defeat a maniacal poacher, who has set his sights on new prey: Holly Short.
The rules of time travel are far from simple, but to save his mother, Artemis will have to break them all and outsmart his most cunning adversary yet: Artemis Fowl, age ten.
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.
