Plot, Setting, and Summary

The J. Argon Clinic, Haven City, The Lower Elements; Three Months Earlier

The J. Argon Clinic was currently occupied with the Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance's (Commonly known as the LEPRecon or the LEP.) Public Enemy Number One, the one and only Opal Koboi, living as a high-security prisoner behind laser bars for leading the Bwa' Kell goblin gang in a revolt against the LEP, that is, if she wakes up from her catatonic state. Dr. Jerbal Argon, a certified medical doctor, psychologist of the Psych Brotherhood, and owner of the J. Argon Clinic, personally took care of Opal, with hi-tech medical and security gadgets, like a personal code, and a gel harness that reacts to body movements, thanks to Foaly. But Opal was not exactly asleep or awake, just somewhere in between. She had induced a cleansing coma, where a fairy could spend the sleep time thinking, or in Opal's case, plotting. Recently, twin pixie janitors, Mervall and Descant Brill, known as Merv and Scant, whom are (Surprise, surprise!) still loyal to their boss, Opal herself, were hired at the clinic. At their janitor's trolley, there was a false bottom containing a perfect copy of Opal, a clone (Soon to be known as Nopal.) who resembled Opal in a coma, a perfect replica which would fool the DNA scanners, and a screen which hacked the security cameras of the J. Argon Clinic.

The J. Argon Clinic, Haven City, The Lower Elements; Present Day

Opal escaped without a trace at night, and had a specifically modified pituitary gland implanted in her upper neck, and had her ears rounded (All fairies [I think,] have pointed ears.) , therefore transforming herself from a pixie to a human. Meanwhile, Commander Julius Root and Captain Holly Short, are tracking down a escaped goblin prisoner Bwa' Kell General Scaalene. They find him in chute E37, with a communicator strapped on to his chest, Scalene talks for a bit, revealing him to be Opal Koboi with a disguised voice, then she remotely shuts the chute doors and strapped the communicator on to Commander Root's chest then revealing it to be a bomb. Holly desperately asks how to stop the bomb, Opal lied that she has to hit a certain part of the bomb using her gun, and activates the bomb. Holly flees to Germany, to save Artemis and Butler.

Munich, Germany; Present Day

Artemis finally has achieved the goal of his dreams, stealing the priceless masterpiece, The Fairy Thief, which depicts a fairy making the act of stealing a child. He examines the painting at the Kronski Hotel, to see whether it is real or not. Butler, Artemis' bodyguard, spots the biological bomb, a bomb which destroys only living things, or bio-bomb, as it is called by the LEP, shot by Koboi in her shuttle in the form of a missile. Butler saves Artemis by grabbing the hotel bed, (It was king sized.) and jumps of the balcony. Holly arrives gets chased by the bio-bomb, gets Artemis, and goes to a nearby chameleon pod, or cham pod, for short.

In A So-called Patch Of Air Over Temple Bar, Dublin, Ireland; Present Day

Artemis woke up in the cham pod to see a girl on an inflatable bench crying. He said, "Why are you crying, girl?". The girl, Holly, (For of course it was her) lifted her head and dried her tears. Artemis asked if her pointed ears were prosthetic or real, and Holly said they were real. Artemis asked if she was a fairy, and she said she was an elf, and told him everything about the Fairy People and the adventures they had, leaving nothing out. Artemis decided to inform Butler about what was happening, so called Fowl Manor, and left a message, and the arrival of Opal at the pod was recorded, and Opal spilled the beans about the Eleven Wonders and something to do with trolls. Butler survived and had gone home and heard the recording via his phone and heard everything while driving home on the Fowl Bentley to the manor. He finds Mulch Diggums there, raiding the fridge (As usual for a tunnel dwarf), and the house (As usual for a kleptomaniac tunnel dwarf).

Fowl Manor, Dublin, Ireland

Mulch had given Butler a video diary of Artemis, so Butler found a video that said view me first. Butler saw Artemis sitting on the table. so, he jogged Butler's recall by saying his First name, only two people knew them. So Artemis said one word: Domovoi. So saying his first name triggered recall, so Butler and Mulch mad a plan to rescue Artemis. They went to the Tara Shuttleport, known as E1, and convinced Chix Verbil to give him the starter chip for his shuttle, and he picked up Butler at their agreed rendezvous point and were chased around by LEP uni-pods for a while, then they were on their way to rescue Artemis and Holly from  the Eleven Wonders Theme Park, or should I say, Troll Park?
