Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. 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.
Artemis thinks he has them right where he wants them…but then they stop playing by the rules.
I took me awhile to read this book because I had so many other books clamoring for my attention. I had to keep renewing this from the library…haha.
BUT, it was really good when I decided to really read it. I really enjoyed Artemis, Butler, and Holly. They were really well developed characters. You got a sense of their past and their current situations and they changed throughout the book a bit.
I love fantasy adventure books, and while I felt this book lacked romance (really, it wouldn’t have hurt to throw in a bit!) I will continue to read this series because it’s really fun.
So yeah, it was good! (:
Content Warnings: Maybe a tad bit of language from the fairy captain, I can’t really remember.
