Publisher's Summary

Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafia: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

Listen to the entire Artemis Fowl series.

    "Allies and Enemies"

    The story continues with higher stakes and more interesting twists. Compared to later additions to the series, this may be a weak volume. But events taking place here have long lasting ramifications.

    "Even Better Than the First One"

    Utterly charming. Even better than the first one, which I loved. While this could stand alone, I enjoyed knowing the background referred to. The narrator has found his groove too, and was even better than in the first book. There are a number of characters, and he did such a good job differentiating the voice, I always knew who was talking, and the accents he chose were great. Adored them. This is one of those books I think is better to listen to than read. Artemis' character has matured a bit, and I found it more redeemable. The plot moves right along with plenty of action, wry humor, and development for the series' longer story arc continued. I'll definitely be listening to the next one.

    "Artemis Fowl and Mulch Diggums strike again."

    Book two, and they just get better from here. I can't wait to start book three. This is my umpteenth time reading these books.

    "*SPOILERS* The Traitor"

    the problem is that the traitor isn't much of a spoiler because it is revealed extremely soon. I was very disappointed in how that the opportunity to see a Artemis led investigation was thrown away for apparent sake of time.

    other than that excellent story.
