But there are more than two players in this deadly game. Holly Short has been enlisted by Section Eight, a covert division of the Lower Elements Police, to find out just what her old accomplice Artemis is up to. And there is also a mysterious assassin, Billy Kong, who will stop at nothing to get his revenge.
Only an ancient time-spell separates the demons from mankind, and Artemis must prevent it from unravelling. If he fails, the bloodthirsty tribe will relaunch their quest to wipe every human from the planet. Because that's what demons live to do. There can only be one winner - and this time it might not be Artemis Fowl.
This is the fifth fantastic Artemis Fowl book from best-selling author Eoin Colfer.

"The best of the Fowl books"
"Continuing the series"
This is a worthy extension of the Artemis Fowl series in an unanticipated, but after the fact reasonably predictable, direction. The characterizations of Artemis, Holly, and Number One are excellently complementary and the story pace is just right for easy listening. I had already read this book however listening to it has revealed subtleties which I do not recollect having discovered previously.
