Artemis Fowl is no stranger to trouble. In fact he's a magnet for it.
Man-eating trolls, armed and dangerous (not to mention high-tech) fairies, flame-throwing goblins - he's seen the lot. He had decided to forego criminal activity of the more magical kind. However . . .
Now his mother is gravely ill. He must travel back through time to steal the cure from the clutches of the devious mastermind . . . Artemis Fowl.
That's right. With fairy ally Captain Holly Short by his side, Artemis is going back in time to do battle with his deadliest enemy yet.
