Thousands of years ago, fairies and humans fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear that they could not win, all of the fairies moved below ground, except for the 8th Family, the demons. Rather than surrender, they used a magical time spell to take their colony out of time and into Limbo. There they have lived for decades, preparing to exact their violent revenge on humans.

Now the time spell is unraveling, and demons are beginning to materialize without warning on Earth. If humans were to find out about them, all fairies would be exposed. To protect themselves, the fairies must predict when the next demon will materialize. But in order to do so, they will have to decipher temporal equations so complicated that even a great brain like Foaly can't understand them. But he knows someone who can: Artemis Fowl.

So when a very confused demon imp appears in a Sicilian theater, Artemis is there to meet him. But he is not alone. There is someone else who has unlocked the secrets of the fairy world and managed to solve complex mathematical problems as only a genius could. And she is just 12 years old.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maura | 2/16/2014

    " Artemis is firmly a good guy by this point in the series. wacky. still a good blend of fantasy (fairies! demons!) and scifi (all the gadgets!) with a good sense of humor and even a little wistfulness at the end (which i wasn't expecting, but worked well). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MizziQ | 2/15/2014

    " I loved this book! If you enjoyed Colfer's earlier Artemis Fowl books I suggest you continue with the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aemilius | 2/14/2014

    " Really liked No1's character, but found the plot rather slow in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/13/2014

    " Really awesome. It shows just how brilliant Eoin Colfer really is. He shows you exactly how fiddling with time is done! Loved every minute. Heart stopping. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Adelseck | 2/11/2014

    " I wrote the wrong review for the previous book. This is the one with Demons. Oh well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 mybluesunset | 2/3/2014

    " 2.5. The writing quality was distracting at first but then I got used to it. Annoyed at how Minerva didn't end up being a real villain, and the "genius" characters are only surface-level smart, but it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paola Moll | 1/28/2014

    " Good ending. I kind of hope they don't ruin it by making a movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodie | 1/3/2014

    " Another amazing Fowl adventure by Eoin Colfer. For those of you who loved the Artemis Fowl character in the first book may have problems with the character in this book. The Fowl character does a complete 180, but is still a very good story one very much worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tressa (Tressa's Wishful Endings) | 1/2/2014

    " Another great Artemis Fowl book. Probably one of my favorite openings with Artemis and the demon. The challenging counterpart in the teenage girl was fun too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Jackson | 12/29/2013

    " Did not expect this to be so different from the previous Artemis Fowl's. Interesting, but a little confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 12/26/2013

    " Best book since number one in the series. Finally brings in a few new characters and a new plot line. I do miss the morally questionable Artemis from the early books, as opposed to this purely "good guy" of the last few, but otherwise quite a good YA book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 12/3/2013

    " This is not my favorite Fowl book - it's going a little too sci fi for the average reader, I think. It was complicated to follow and I'm not sure younger YA readers could follow it well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayleighh! | 11/17/2013

    " AMAZING! slow at times but has an extremely awesome twist at the end!! =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucas Mosher | 10/21/2013

    " this book is the 5th book of the artemis fowl series, and was very good, but it wasnt as good as the other ones. I gave it 3 stars because it wasnt as logical mystery solving as it was just pure luck mystery solving. i would only reccomend it if you have already read the other books in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/24/2013

    " Least favorite of the series by far. Still love Artemis, Holly, and Butler. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MissMeganToYou | 9/26/2012

    " These books are AWESOME!!!!! They all have amazing plots and wonderful characters and are REALLY funny!!! Atermis gives me the chills...I would recommend these books to anyone. "

    " More Fowl fun. I suggest reading them in order. If you get this far you know what you're in for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracie | 5/12/2012

    " I enjoyed this one as much as any of the others and I was geniuely shocked by the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ariel | 4/26/2012

    " I enjoyed the book. Not quite as much as the other four, I think, but I liked the addition of new characters to the mix! Especially No1. Love him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dyl | 4/19/2012

    " I think this is a cool book if your into adventure books and you like a bit of a thrill and also like SCI-FI "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Viknesh | 3/7/2012

    " No. 1 is Awesome. That was some sneaky saving Artemis "

    " One of my fav books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellon | 8/20/2011

    " Fantastic! I feel like I say this every time but I feel like this was the best in the series. It seemed like the whole book was exciting. A lot less down time than the others. I am also excited to see what comes next for Artemis. So glad I picked up this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Nevriana | 8/12/2011

    " twisting story, entertaining with surprising ending. i personally love colfer's sense of humor in this book "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Honeybee | 5/23/2011

    " Someone told me that Artemis Fowl is just like Harry Potter. I beg to differ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 5/22/2011

    " It was witty and clever "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anh | 5/21/2011

    " It's not interesting in my opinion. That's it, I didn't finish so I won't comment anything. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/18/2011

    " Eoin Colfer is a very, very funny guy. This is a great series, and well worth listening to, especially in a car full of boys. The criminal aspect of it may seem alarming, but give this book and series a shot. You'll be surprised how many moral issues are raised and answered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kae | 5/17/2011

    " still only feel meh about it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brii | 5/15/2011

    " Good, cute story - kept me guessing the plan up until the last few pages. I know it's for a younger audience, but still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 5/13/2011

    " Fantastic book! Contains heaps of that dry Irish humor I love so much, with tons of fantastical fairy creatures. I'll be sure to read the rest of the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noellebastian | 5/11/2011

    " Very fun. I'd read this with my boys as pre-teens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 5/10/2011

    " Three stars should do it. Not fantastic. Not terrible. Not enough to keep me wanting to read the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 5/9/2011

    " This book introduces the young criminal master mind Artemis Fowl, his bodyguard Butler, and fairies. The set up of the world is fascinating and the book is fast paced and interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Guy | 5/8/2011

    " It's kinda cool but kinda lame.. I can't stop comparing to Harry Potter and Harry wins by a longshot.
    The main character is way to smart and annoying. The story is I guess ok but nothing much.. all in all an ok read but I wouldn't go as far as recommending it. "
