ARTEMIS FOWL

ARTEMIS FOWL is a child prodigy from Ireland who has dedicated his brilliant mind to

criminal activities. When Artemis discovers that there is a fairy civilization below
ground, he sees it as a golden opportunity. Now there is a whole new species to exploit
with his ingenious schemes. But Artemis doesn’t know as much as he thinks about the
fairy People. And what he doesn’t know could hurt him…

PROLOGUE

EXCERPT FROM ARTEMIS FOWL’S DIARY. DISK 2. ENCRYPTED.

FOR the past two years my business enterprises have thrived without parental

interference. In this time, I have sold the Pyramids to a Western businessman, forged
and auctioned off the lost diaries of Leonardo da Vinci and separated the fairy People
from a large portion of their precious gold. But my freedom to plot is almost at an end.
As I write, my father lies in a hospital bed in Helsinki, where he recovers after a twoyear imprisonment by the Russian Mafiya. He is still unconscious following his ordeal,
but he will awaken soon and retake control of the Fowl finances.
With two parents resident in Fowl Manor, it will be impossible for me to conduct my
various illegal ventures undetected. Previously this would not have been a problem as
my father was a bigger crook than me, but Mother is determined that the Fowls are
going straight.
However, there is time for one last job. Something that my mother would not approve
of. I don’t think the fairy folk would like it much either. So I shall not tell them.

ATTACK
