Description:

Artemis Fowl tries hard to prove the existence of fairies and finally believes that he has been able to do so when he conducts a great deal of research on them in Artemis Fowl 1 (Reissue). He is twelve years old and is a criminal genius. He has a bodyguard named Butler who accompanies him everywhere. Following this discovery about the fairies and their existence, he journeys to Ho Chi Minh City with Butler, to catch a fairy, who is under the influence of alcohol. He intends to obtain the sacred book of the fairies, The Book of the People, from that fairy. This book has been written in the language of the fairies, which is known as Gnommish.

The readers are then told of the adventures of Captain Holly Short, as she tries her best to capture a renegade troll, who has made his way up from the deep parts of the earth, to its surface. With the help of Foaly and Julius Root, she is able to capture this troll but exhausts her magical powers in the process. Holly tries to perform the magic restoration ritual but is tranquilized by Artemis and Butler, while doing so.

Artemis Fowl is able to unearth the previously unknown secrets regarding the ritual that could help Holly regain her magical powers. He does this by translating the text of the book, which he has obtained. What follows is a secret intrusion that takes place in Artemis� home. Butler is able to capture the intruders, namely Julius Root and a few others. Various twists and turns take place, which include a ransom demand by Artemis.
The action continues as the fairies recruit a criminal dwarf by the name of Mulch Diggums, in an attempt to gain access to Artemis� home. Foaly also helps in these attempts. While all of this is taking place, Holly has managed to break free from captivity and has regained her magical powers as well, after performing the required ritual.

The climax of Artemis Fowl 1 (Reissue) is when the situation of Artemis� mother is revealed and only Holly can help her come out of this mess. The author is extremely successful in keeping the audience captivated as he ensures that the book is packed with loads of action and suspense. This is reflected in his writing style as well. The popularity of this novel series has brought a great deal of recognition and respect for the author.
