Having saved the world, and more than once, Artemis has found his return to the "simple" life to be rather dull. So when he gets wind of demon materializations, and realizes, quite by accident, that the calculations are wrong and that the world may be about to end yet again...of course he can't stay away.

After an accidental and short journey through time with a demon, Artemis becomes determined to try to solve the issue of the island of Hybras, suspended in time by a decaying spell. His plans become complicated when he realizes another child genius also knows about the demons--and that their goals are not at all the same.

The two become embroiled in a strategic war, Minerva wanting a Nobel Prize, ARtemis wanting to come up with a plan to save the demon species, with minimal impact to Earth. Neither gets precisely what they wanted, as all plans go awry--and with rather dire consequences--not the least of which is Artemis and Holly's unexpected trip to Hybras just in time to see it begin to disintegrate.

Will they be able save the island and make it back home?


Artemis Fowl is another series I came late too, and then plowed straight through. The antics of a teenage genius mastermind are just plain old entertaining. If I need a little lift, this is the kind of book I grab off the shelf, leaving the heavier stuff for later.
