Artemis Fowl is a young adult fantasy novel written by Irish author Eoin Colfer. It is the first book in the Artemis Fowl series, the first cycle of The Fowl Adventures, followed by Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident. Described by its author as "Die Hard with fairies", the novel follows fairy LEP reconnaissance officer Holly Short after she is kidnapped by twelve-year-old criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl II for a large ransom of gold. Throughout the book, the third-person narration switches from following the human characters to following the fairy characters to present underlying themes of greed and conflict. The book received a mostly favourable critical response and several awards. A film adaptation titled Artemis Fowl was released in the United Kingdom on 12 June 2020 and the United States on 10 September 2021 by Walt Disney Pictures. Source: Wikipedia (en)
