Publisher Description

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.

Stay back, Human.

You don’t know what you’re dealing with.

"Ah, the ultimate enemy when you're an ex-criminal... yourself! It wasn't as good as some of the other ones (I think I liked the "Arctic Incident" better...) but it was enjoyable. I think it's precious how much Artemis loves his mother. Underneath that whole "villain" face, he's still a good son."

    " I couldn't finish this book. It added one too many unnecessary plot devices. I could be wrong, but I could see where the book would end up and I didn't want to slosh through all of that...predictable...material. "

    " This book was slightly confusing, but I guess that happens with time travel and everything. Interesting to see Artemis battle with his younger self and realize just how much of a brat he was when Holly first met him. Also, Holly and Artemis kiss...not sure how I feel about that lol "

    " OMG the most trippy and mind messing book i have read in a long time. regardless of it being YA fiction. As usual Eion Colfer's brilliant wit and humor is throughout while still giving the reader the best impact of all the plot twists. A great read no matter age "

    " In general, I don't like time travel plots, because most have plot holes that you can drive a tanker through...this one is no exception. I think this is the weakest in the series, thus far, though it wasn't bad enough for me to discontinue. "

    " The 2 star was totally my fault. It was the 1st Artemis Fowl I read. If I had the history with the other stories first I am sure I would have enjoyed it more. That's what I get for grabbing something off the Library shelf and not paying attention to details. "

    " I enjoy the Artemis Fowl series, but I would rather listen to this series than read it. The audio books are so well done and really make the characters come alive in a way that holds my interest more than reading the books do. "

    " 1 Question for Mr. Colfer: were you kidnapped by a fan and forced to write this book in his/her basement like that guy from misery? If so, write a message in gnomish in your next book... we'll see if we can set Foaly on it. If not... I have nothing more to say. "

    " I was really disappointed with this entry in the Artemis Fowl series. I felt various characters were not used to their fullest purpose and others had weird out of character moments. The plot of time travel seemed like "what else can we do?" Hopefully the next one will be better. "
