In the book Artemis Fowl, the reader follows Artemis, a young Irish genius and heir to a failed criminal empire, in a tense standoff against fairies. These fairies don't go around putting quarters under pillows though. When Artemis captures one of their own, Holly Short of the LEPrecon squad (the equivalent of the human SWAT team), things get out of control. Trolls, bio-bombs, Butlers, and a little magic put a modern spin on fairytale creatures. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys fantasy, but is tired of the "A long time ago in a land far away..." stuff.
