In it is a plea from his father, who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves. "A cracking good read."-Publishers Weekly "The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away. . ."-Entertainment Weekly (review: A-)

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - Tigerlily12 - LibraryThing

Maniacal child genius. Fairies with high tech equipment AND magical powers. Conflict, hilarity and sarcasm ensue. Who could say no? Meant for elementary to middle school readers, but I think slightly older readers could it enjoy it just as much. Read full review

One of my fifth graders issued a challenge, to which I could not say no. We were to race to the end of the series (at that time there were only five). I won, of course, but loved every minute of it. Nice, quirky series for fourth grand readers and up. Read full review
