Annotation: From a strikingly original voice in fiction comes the story of Artemis Fowl, a very unusual hero. Artemis combines the astuteness of Sherlock Holmes with the sangfroid of James Bond and the attitude of Attila the Hun. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules . . .
Full of unexpected twists and turns, ARTEMIS FOWL opens up a riveting world of magic, mystery, and humor.

Reviewed by Horn Book Magazine Reviews (Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2004 #4)
Parker adopts a briskly sardonic voice for narrator Artemis Fowl, the twelve-year-old mastermind whose plotting against the fairy kingdom is as meticulous as it is nefarious. The cast of trolls, gnomes, and fairies invites free-wheeling interpretation: Captain Holly Short is brash and a bit breathless; Butler, Fowl's faithful servant, sounds a fair bit like Jeeves; and who's to say that a paranoid centaur doesn't speak with a cockney accent? Breakneck pacing keeps the convoluted plot moving with reckless indifference to anything but the drama of the moment--which is just as well since detailed explanations, extraordinary inventions, and incongruous tangents abound. Parker's performance is a perfect match for the fantasy's high-tech magic and low-brow humor. Copyright 2004 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.
