Ok, imagine if Harry Potter had a gangsta ass butler who was not afraid to smack the sh*t out of a fairy. Ok, got it, that’s Artemis Fowl (and his Butler named…Butler). Now add the fact that he’s a super genius. NOW also add that he’s semi-evil and only interested in money and power. Add in the fact that in this series of books, there ARE fairies and LEPrechauns and centaurs, and Artemis Fowl kicks it with them.
Go read it.
