Artemis Fowl Summary

(Beacham's Guide to Literature for Young Adults)

After his father's disappearance, Artemis Fowl kidnaps an elf, Captain Holly Short, in an effort to ransom gold to replenish his family's wealth. The twelve-yearold exhibits extraordinary skills and utilizes fantastical technology to manipulate situations to his benefit. This action triggers a rescue attempt by the underground's elite LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police reconnaissance). A variety of supernatural characters, collectively known as the People, gather at the Fowl manor in an attempt to save Holly. Allied with the faithful Butler, Fowl is determined to be the victor.
