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.I was pleasantly surprised with Artemis Fowl because I must confess I went into this book expecting NOT to like it. I have came so close to picking it up several times at the book store but it just never hit me hard enough to buy it so when Netgalley offered it up I decided here was my chance to step outside the comfort zone.
The first couple of pages had me captivated and quickly delved into the extraordinary world of a miniature 007 meets Richie Rich! It was incredibly easy getting sucked into Atemis's wicked schemes and I feel what really made this so enjoyable to me was the fact that it was more of an updated fantasy adventure weilding computers and high tech gadjets instead of just the usual spells, wands, and ect..
I definatley see more Artemis in my future!
