Artemis Fowl

Twelve-year-old criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl is on a mission to conquer the world! He’s just discovered that fairies really do exist – along with a massive stash of fairy gold! Artemis is dying to get his hands on that gold. But how? His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But Artemis gets MUCH more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). For a start, leprechaun weaponry is much more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a hard-as-nails heroine whose commanding officer will stop at nothing to get her back, and you’ve got the mother of all sieges brewing! Even evil genius Artemis Fowl wasn’t ready for this. “Stand back! These fairies are dangerous!”
