      I really liked this book because this time, Artemis will have to do something on his own with only the help of a former enemy. Why? Well, Butler was injured in attempt to save young Artemis's life. Artemis was just trying to sell his C-cube, which was a gadget based on fairy tech. His product gets stolen! The business man that Arty was going to talk to stole his gadget, and now he has to save Butler and get his thing back. Why is the gadget so important? Well you'll have to find out! Arty must use fairy magic to save Butler, so he has to get back Holly Short.......

                This is an amazing book series. I'm sad that it's ended... With each book the story gets wilder and better. In this one , Butler almost dies and Artemis and Holly bring him back , but physically he's like 20 years older.
