This book is surely my favorite of the series! Artemis has met his match at last with the 12-year-old-college-grad-child-genius Minerva!! No1, an imp who refuses to warp or mature, has escaped to the human dimension, where he is captured by Minerva. Artemis must find out where more demons will pop up. He must fight them before all is lost.
