Title: Artemis Fowl the Time Paradox




The Climax of the story is when Artemis and the lemur are captured by Opal Koboi. Artemis needs the lemur to make a serum to save his mom from the magical sickness that she has. Opal reveals her plan to use the same lemur to make a serum that will render her magic all powerful. Opal intends to harvest Artemis' brain fluids to make moisturizer and then to incinerate him. When Opal leaves him with one of her assistants Artemis attempts his escape and tries to rescue the lemur.

Artemis manages to escape from Opal's clutches and succeeds in rescuing the lemur. He opens a hole in the time-stream and exits into the present. In his haste he forgets to hex the door and Opal follows him through. He cures his mother before he and Opal duel. He wins the duel and traps Opal. Unfortunately she later escapes. Now this other, more powerful Opal is on the loose.

The book explores a parodox. Artemis realizes by the end of the novel that his going into the past to cure his mother's sickness is exactly what contributed to his mother's sickness. Similarly as a result of his journey through the time-stream there are now two versions of Opal, one even more powerful than before.
