Thousands of years ago, fairies and humans fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear that they could not win, all of the fairies moved belowground- except for the 8th Family, the demons. Rather than surrender, they used a magical time spell to take their colony out of time and into Limbo. There they have lived for decades, preparing to exact their violent revenge on humans.
Now the time spell is unraveling, and demons are beginning to materialize without warning on Earth. If humans were to find out about them, all fairies would be exposed. To protect themselves, the fairies must predict when the next demon will materialize. But in order to do so, they will have to decipher temporal equations so complicated; even a great brain like Foaly can't understand them. But he knows someone who can: Artemis Fowl.
So when a very confused demon imp appears in a Sicilian theater, Artemis is there to meet him. But he is not alone. There is someone else who has unlocked the secrets of the fairy world and managed to solve complex mathematical problems as only a genius could. And she is just twelve years old. . .

Gr 5-8 â€“Artemis Fowl devotees will relish the fifth book (Miramax, 2006) in the series, the sequel to The Opal Deception (Miramax, 2005). The fairy people are in trouble because a magical time spell is unraveling for a colony of demons who have been living in Limbo. In this episode, Colfer introduces this new "family" of fairy people, the demons, and creates an elite branch of the L.E.P. (Lower Elements Police) that deals exclusively with monitoring demon activity. Holly Short is restored to her rank as Captain and Foaly, the technical wizard, is given a seemingly endless budget to invent even more ingenious gadgets to guide our heroes on their latest mission to the crumbling island home of the eighth family to save their raceâ€”and themselvesâ€”from oblivion. Artemia is called on to predict when the next demon will appear and help protect the fairies. Nathanial Parker narrates with skill and humor. His mastery of the nuances of the Irish and English accents adds depth to the novel. For fans of the series.â€“Saleena Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ[Page 72].
