Favourite childhood book.
Artemis Fowl is the 12 year old son of an Irish crime lord. A child prodigy who leads the Fowl criminal empire.
Holly Short is a fairy and first female captain of LEPrecon, a division of the Lower Elements Police, who specialise in fairies who have wandered onto the surface of the Earth. That is until Artemis kidnaps Holly and holds her for ransom to exploit the Fairy People and restore his family’s fortune.
I loved this series as a kid. Its funny, silly and surprisingly violent for a kids book.
