Wexford on the southeast coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four
brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher,
historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first

translated into many languages; a sequel followed in 1999. In 2001, the
first Artemis Fowl book was published worldwide to much success -
shortly thereafter he left teaching to concentrate fully on his writing.
To this day, Eoin has written 6 Artemis Fowl books which have sold over
12 million copies worldwide.

I ordered these books for my wife(and one day my daughter), I specifically looked for a matched set since I knew there were a few versions of covers and wanted them to look nice on the shelf.

Pros: It's still Artemis Fowl, a great series for the Hobbit/Harry Potter type crowd and couldn't recommend them enough for the lovers of all fantasy.

Cons: Every-Single-Book was in poor, WELL USED condition, no pages were coming out but it was a random mix of paperback and hardcover books with way too many torn pages, stains, and one of the hardcovers was missing the outside cover completely. This was NOT clearly stated at all in the description.

While this may have possibly been an ok price if all you care about is the story(which is great), If you want a boxed set then this is DEFINITELY not the seller you want to use.

I bought this product for my grandson, thinking that I would be getting a boxed set of books, something that I myself have enjoyed in the past. I am not rating the stories, as I have not read them. This is PURELY A RATING OF THE PRODUCT, NOT ITS CONTENT. The books are poorly bound, with pucker-buckles on the pages. The covers had something sticky on them in places which had caused some slight damage to the other books they were in contact with. Lastly, there WAS NO BOX!
when I buy something advertised as a "box set" I expect a box.

Artemis Fowl
By: Torrey M

Artemis Fowl, a 13 year old genius, thought that there was a magical civilization of fairies or sprites underground, so he goes in search of a fairy or sprite to retrieve their book of magic. When he finally finds a sprite who is drunkenly willing to give up her book for more alcohol, the fairy technical genius, Foaly the centaur, finds out that Artemis got the sprites' book of magic. He tells the fairy police chief, Commander Julius Root and soon after almost every fairy in the underground of Europe will find out that Artemis Fowl has exposed their civilization to the human race. Mayhem breaks out and Artemis's life drastically changes.
Accompanying Artemis through the book is Butler, and Butler's sister Juliet who are trained bodyguards who work for the Fowls. This book is told by Artemis's point of view and by a fairy police captain called Holly Short. This is a grabbing story, full of humor, secrets, crime, guilt, and suspense. Once you pick it up you will want to read the whole 5 books of the Artemis Fowl series. I recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone that would like to read an amazing series of books!

Format: Paperback
These books are wonderfully entertaining because of the characters and the plot. They are based on several adventures focusing on Artmeis Fowl and Holly Short.

Artemis is an Irish genius, whose focus is maintaining the family's status as an overwhelmingly rich and powerful force. He does this by plotting schemes that are very rarely legal and often not very nice. However, this actions are understandable as they are explained. As the books procede and Artemis gets older, he develops a streak that causes him inner conflict about this.

Holly Short is the first female captain in the fairy people's police force which puts her under lots of strain to be perfect, but who has a maverick streak that can get her into trouble. She inadvertantly gets caught in Artemis's scheme in the first book and continues to be drawn into subsequent ones until she begins to choose to work with him.

Other characters that are relevant through all of the books are Butler, Juliet, Mulch Diggums, Foaly, Julius Root and Artemis's family.

Butler is Artemis's body guard and definently the coolest character in any book I have read. He is about 7 feet tall, knows multiple martial arts, can kill a man with his pinky finger, can cook gourmet meals and has a soft spot that makes him thorougly likeable. Juliet is his younger sister who has many of the same characterisitics with the attitude of a teenage girl.

Mulch Diggums (kleptomaniac dwarf) gave up his magic to enter a life of crime, but this does not alwyas work well for him. He brings humor to the story with his slightly off point of view, but his dwarven abilities are a vital part for the team.
