Summary

Ten thousand years ago, humans and fairies fought a great battle. When the fairies realized they'd never win, they moved their civilization underground and hid. All the families agreed, except the demons.The demons planned to lift themselves out of time until they were ready to wage war on the humans once more. But the spell went wrong, and they were catapulted into Limbo. Now the spell's deterioration is accelerating and the demon materializations are erupting. Even the fairy scientists cannot predict the next one.But someone can. Artemis Fowl, teenage criminal mastermind, has solved temporal equations that no human can. So when a confused and frightened demon pops up in a Sicilian theatre, Artemis is there to meet him. Unfortunately, a second mysterious party has also solved the equations and has managed to abduct the demon.Once again, Artemis will pair up with his old comrade Captain Holly Short, to track down the missing demon, before the spell dissolves completely and the lost demon colony returns violently to Earth.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-Artemis Fowl devotees will relish the fifth book (Miramax, 2006) in the series, the sequel to The Opal Deception (Miramax, 2005). The fairy people are in trouble because a magical time spell is unraveling for a colony of demons who have been living in Limbo. In this episode, Colfer introduces this new "family" of fairy people, the demons, and creates an elite branch of the L.E.P. (Lower Elements Police) that deals exclusively with monitoring demon activity. Holly Short is restored to her rank as Captain and Foaly, the technical wizard, is given a seemingly endless budget to invent even more ingenious gadgets to guide our heroes on their latest mission to the crumbling island home of the eighth family to save their race-and themselves-from oblivion. Artemia is called on to predict when the next demon will appear and help protect the fairies. Nathanial Parker narrates with skill and humor. His mastery of the nuances of the Irish and English accents adds depth to the novel. For fans of the series.-Saleena Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Booklist Review

In this sequel to The Opal Deception (2005), 14-year-old Artemis discovers an unraveling time tunnel connecting demons with the earth. These imps have sworn revenge on humans, and their unpredictable appearances threaten to expose the entire fairy world. As always, Colfer delivers not only continuous action but also witty wordplay and dialogue, understated humor, and plenty of magical technology and gadgetry. A must for kids who have enjoyed Artemis' previous escapades. --Kay Weisman Copyright 2006 Booklist
