Fowl Manor, Dublin, Ireland
Barely an hour north of Dublin’s fair city lies the Fowl estate, where the boundaries have changed little in the past five hundred years.
Holly pointed to the sheen covering Angeline’s face. “See the gel, Foaly, from the pores. And the smell of lilies too; there can’t be any doubt.”
“It’s impossible,” muttered the centaur. “We eradicated this years ago.”
Artemis was growing weary of these vague references. “What is impossible? Eradicated what?”
When Artemis Fowl’s mother contracts a life-threatening illness, his world is turned upside down. The only hope for a cure lies in the brain fluid of the silky sifaka lemur. Unfortunately, the animal is extinct due to a heartless bargain Artemis himself made as a younger boy.
Though the odds are stacked against him, Artemis is not willing to give up. With the help of his fairy friends, the young genius travels back in time to save the lemur and bring it back to the present. But to do so, Artemis will have to defeat a maniacal poacher, who has set his sights on new prey: Holly Short.
The rules of time travel are far from simple, but to save his mother, Artemis will have to break them all?and outsmart his most cunning adversary yet: Artemis Fowl, age ten.
What an intriguing story…and great excerpts. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine:
“ALL WE EVER WANTED”
I really need to re-read and then finish this series. 🙂
The opening sure invites you in and the excerpt makes me curious. Just what is Angeline?

Re-reading these books this year has been the best decision ever!
Meanwhile Artemis was getting frustrated by Holly and Foaly's vagueness. lol
How many books have you read?

It's full of adventure, magic and subtle humor! 😀
They're pretty fun reads! 🙂
I have heard such wonderful things about this series. I should definitely give it a try one of these days. 🙂
If I HAVE to pick, the first one. But I really love seeing the arc of Artemis's character growth throughout the series, so every book is wonderful.
I know the Artemis Fowl series holds a special place in your heart. I really need to try it, and soon!
The first one too. Can't help but love the book that started it all. 😀 And second is probably The Opal Deception.
Maybe before the movie comes out next year 😉
Even more so these days with the movie coming next year and the new spin-off in 2020. Feeling the AF love! 😀
