Publisher's Summary

Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafia: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Right Up My Alley

As a big fan of Terry Pratchett, my wife introduced me to the Artemis Fowl series. It doesn't disappoint--just the right blend of humor, fantasy, even sci-fi (faerie tech). All my favorite genres for fiction. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Also, Nathaniel Parker does a bang up job with the reading--great with accents and voices. I'd bet he can give Jim Dale a run for his money.

Highly Enjoyable

As a mother of very young children, I'm always on the hunt for books that interest me, yet are kid friendly. (no cussing, vulgarity, etc) The Artemis Fowl books are wonderful. Yes, they are technically children's books, but they definitely have enough depth and plot to interest adults. The narrator does an excellent job, and is one of the few I really enjoy. Beware- the last Artemis Fowl book has a different narrator.
