The Blurb:
Ten millennia ago, the fairy people were defeated in a great battle with mankind, forcing them to move underground. Only the 8th family of fairies remained undefeated: the demons. But now one demon has discovered the secrets of the fairy world, and if humans get hold of this information, the fairies are in big trouble. Only one person can prevent this disaster - teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl.

The Review:
Artemis Fowl has done a bit of growing up since he first kidnapped a fairy in order to gain possession of a fortune in fairy gold, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost any of his genius touch! The only trouble is he may have met his match – a girl! In this latest instalment, we see a different side of Artemis – he’s starting to take into account the fact that his actions will have consequences and this has an impact on the way he chooses to live his life. All the usual suspects are here, from Butler to Holly Short to Mulch Diggums to Foaly, along with a whole host of new ones that make this a light and fun read. One can only hope there’s more to come because I don’t think Artemis is done just yet!
