Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, Book 1)
This is the first book in the Artemis Fowl series. I really had no idea what to expect when I first picked up this book, but I was immediately interested. I loved the story and the characters. The book is clean and appropriate, but it should be remembered that the main character isn’t really a “good guy” at all. In this book, Artemis, a young but incredibly intelligent boy, want to continue the “family business” of crime. However, he has a plan to steal in a way never done before. He is going to try and get his hand on fairy gold. He will have to match his wits against a more advanced civilization that also has magic on their side in order to succeed.
