Artemis Fowl

Twelve-year-old genius Artemis Fowl is a brilliant criminal mastermind. If the rumours are true, he’s behind pretty much every major crime of the 20th century. But he makes a big mistake when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Police Unit, while trying to steal a stash of fairy gold. These aren’t the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and dangerous. And they don’t play by the rules…
