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.
Artemis thinks he has them right where he wants them...but then they stop playing by the rules.
"Stay back, Human. You don’t know what you’re dealing with."
Listen to the entire Artemis Fowl series.

Enjoyed the narrator, the characters stay true and the basic story is interesting. It gets a little too "loopy" at the end when they try and straighten the final story out. Time travel books have a tendency to complicate a good story line. It was worth the listen.
the book was doing pretty well. it was secular from the over used characters and usual plots but then near the end it came all back around. honestly reusing the same secondary character this much is just nauseating. I feel like the series is a pokemon episode, each time team rocket shows up tries to do some stuff blasts off again and then returns next week.
This was a heartfelt book with an awkward yet cut romance. The characters really developed and grew their friendship. The narrator was fantastic and the story was flawless!!!!!!
There is little difference since I listen to the unabridged versions. The benefit is the voices provided by Nathaniel. I don't have to provide them,
It's a time travel book. It was a little confusing going back and forth.
Nathaniel brings the voices of the characters. His voices help me keep track of who's speaking so I don't have to think about it. It. like listening to a movie. A good narrator is very important. Nathaniel does a good job.
The Present vs. the Past for the Future
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and frequently do (as I work in a library). The action and adventure don't stop! Our favorite characters develop even more in this story, and we discover another side to Holly. Eoin Colfer's wry sense of humor prevents the ecological message from becoming preachy, and the villain is wonderfully off-kilter.
Nathanial Parker's wonderful grasp of the personality and accent of each character, even a minor one, exponentially enhanced my enjoyment of this book.
Finding out a bit more about Captain Holly Short, and her relationship with her mother, really helped explain some of the reasons she became the tough little elf she did!
All of the Artemis Fowl series have been performed amazingly, I just thin the author is running out of material.

Artemis is back, maturing but still Artemis. What splendid stories these are. The detail of James Bond, the charm and tight plotting of Harry Potter, the relentless action of the best spy thrillers. Characters I've grown to love, moving through exquisitely detailed worlds. Thank goodness the end is not in sight.
