Artemis Fowl is the first book in the series. It is about a twelve-year-old genius boy who is a millionaire. His mother is very sick and his father is away, so there are no boundries on what he can and cannot do. With this freedom, Artemis captures a fairy, Holly Short. He believes he can control the fairies and learn all their secrets. This book is great for anybody who loves reading adventurous, mysterious, and/or sci-fi books.
