Teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl has discovered that demons are real and they’re randomly appearing around the globe. He’s determined to catch one in Sicily. He is thwarted in his plans by a girl who’s about his age and her henchmen, who manage to capture the demon first. Along with Holly Short, who is worried that the demon may betray the existence of the rest of the fairy folk, and their company, Artemis attempts to rescue the demon from the mysterious girl.
What was most interesting about this book is the setup for future stories. I don’t want to give away spoilers, so I won’t say much about that, but I will say that I like Minerva and hope that she becomes a recurring character. The other twists could lead to some very interesting developments.
I missed most of the oddball crew. This book focused so much on Artemis and Holly and the even the demon that I really missed Butler, Mulch, Foaly, etc. They were included–don’t get me wrong–but not as much as I would have liked.
I don’t have much more to say. This certainly wasn’t as funny or entertaining as other Artemis Fowl books, but I have high hopes for the books that follow.
