In the heat of the Arizona desert a monster is born . . .
. . . and it's not Artemis Fowl.
This is the moment the Extendedes had waited for. After years of planning and three days worth of anticipation, now is the time for Artemis to make his decision.
- Or will he choose the far easier path and return home with Butler leaving the Extendedes to fend for themselves?
The choice is with the adolesent Artemis Fowl II, a choice which could annihilate an endangered race, or change the balence of power in both the human and fairy world.
