Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer.
Talk Miramax Books/Hyperion Books for Children: NY.

Magic and fairy tales (literally) go hi-tech in this most original, humorous, and elaborate series. All of the books are absorbing with many memorable moments. Artemis is a mastermind at planning and technology. Despite his intelligence, he is certainly not the ideal in character. However, exposure to the fairy world teaches him valuable lessons in friendship, loyalty, and selflessness.

Artemis Fowl ©2001: Through research and scheming Artemis finds a way to capture a fairy in order to increase his family fortune. Because of his knowledge he is sure of success, but there are still things about the fairy world that he has not learned.

Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident ©2002: Artemis's father is being held in Russia for ransom. The B'Wa Kell goblins are rebelling with the help of an insider at LEPrecon headquarters. Human artifacts are surfacing underground, so Holly Short, Root and Foaly believe Artemis must be trading with the goblins. Artemis and Butler are interrogated to learn the truth, and the 5 join forces to retrieve Artemis Fowl, Sr. and end the goblin uprising.

Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code ©2003: Possibly the best of the series, this book has many surprises. Artemis builds the ultimate computer-with fairy equipment confiscated in earlier situations. The C Cube will make all other communications technology obsolete. It is verbally controlled, wireless, and can be used as a TV, phone, video and audio player, and computer. It can hack any computer and scan any contents-electronic or organic. It can also piggyback on any satellite given the source code.

Artemis tries to make a business deal regarding the C Cube, and it ends up in the hands of a ruthless criminal industrialist. Holly and Foaly are drawn into Artemis's deals again because the Cube has scanned their information systems. Because the Cube is verbally controlled, Spiro (the thief) will require Artemis's services.

Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception ©2005: Opal Koboi has made an ingenious escape and has set out to destroy all those responsible for her incarceration. Artemis walks directly into her trap. Thanks to Butler's unique abilities they elude death. Holly has lost connection with Foaly and is on the run as a suspect for the murder of Commander Root. So, Artemis is the only one capable of stopping Opal, but he has to recover his memories of the fairy people first.
