Publisher Comments:

Artemis Fowl is going straight — as soon as he pulls off the most brilliant criminal feat of his career...

After being held prisoner for five years, Artemis Fowl's father has finally come home. He's a new man — an honest man, much to Artemis's horror. He makes his son promise to give up his life of crime, and Artemis has to go along with it. But not until he has completed one last scheme.

Artemis has constructed a super-computer from stolen fairy technology. Called the "C Cube," it will render all existing human technology obsolete. He arranges a meeting with a powerful Chicago businessman, Jon Spiro, to broker a deal for the C Cube. But Spiro springs a trap — he steals the C Cube and mortally injures Butler. Artemis knows his only hope of saving his loyal bodyguard is to employ fairy magic; so once again he must contact his old rival, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police.

It is going to take a miracle to save Butler, and Artemis's luck may have just run out...

Review:

"Even better than The Arctic Incident, this third fantasy thriller starring Artemis Fowl pits the 13-year-old criminal mastermind against his most cunning adversary yet — American billionaire Jon Spiro, owner of the high-tech firm Fission Chips. Artemis Fowl's father, while recuperating from the brush with death he suffered in the last installment, makes a stunning announcement: he wants the family to turn over a new leaf and hew to the straight and narrow. Fortunately for readers, Artemis has other plans. 'One last adventure, then the Fowls could be a proper family,' he decides. After all, what could go wrong? Everything, as it turns out. Artemis's scheme to extract one metric ton of gold from Spiro, in exchange for keeping the C Cube — a beyond-state-of-the-art computer he's built using pirated fairy technology — off the market, backfires spectacularly. In order to save Butler, his bodyguard, and set things back to rights in the fairy world, Artemis joins forces with Butler's sister Juliet and drafts the help of the usual suspects (elf captain Holly Short, computer-geek centaur Foaly, flatulent dwarf Mulch Diggums). Once again, Colfer serves up a high-intensity plot involving cryogenics and a mobster mentality as the action hurtles toward the climactic break-in at Chicago's Spiro Needle. Agile prose (Jon Spiro is 'thin as a javelin' ), rapid-fire dialogue and wise-acre humor ('Goblins. Evolution's little joke. Pick the dumbest creatures on the planet and give them the ability to conjure fire') ensure that readers will burn the midnight oil to the finish. (The ending leaves the door wide open for yet another sequel.) Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

"The kid's still got it....Harry had better watch his back! (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

Ever the resourceful young criminal mastermind, Artemis has found a way to construct a supercomputer from stolen fairy technology. Called the "C Cube," it will render all existing human technology obsolete. Artemis then arranges a meeting with a Chicago businessman, Jon Spiro, to offer to suppress the Cube for one year in return for gold, his favorite substance. But the meeting is a trap, and Spiro steals the Cube and mortally injures Butler. Artemis knows his only hope to save Butler lies in fairy magic, so once again he is forced to contact his old rival, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrepcon fairy police. Miraculously, Butler is healed, but there is a catch: he has aged fifteen years. Thus, Butler's infamously ditzy sister, Juliet, is called in as Artemis's bodyguard. Together, they travel to Chicago to steal back the Cube and ensure that Jon Spiro is put out of business — permanently.

If fairy technology could be used in the manufacture of a computer... it would be much smaller and faster and more versatile than our own--and it would be designed by Artemis Fowl. A Artemis attempts to profit from his invention, but of course, even a twelve-year-old does not have complete control over the circumstances. The double-cross costs Butler his life, and now Artemis must rescue his invention (that never should have existed) or risk putting the entire Lower Elements in jeopardy.
Colfer's ability to create loveable and realistic characters like Mulch Diggums and Foaly out of thin air is skill indeed. It is a marvelous series, and each book better than the last.
