Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After being held prisoner for years, Artemis Fowl's father has finally come home. He is 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 just run out...

Review:

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

Review:

"Even better than The Arctic Incident....Once again, Colfer serves up a high-intensity plot....Agile prose...rapid-fire dialogue and wise-acre humor...ensure that readers will burn the midnight oil to the finish." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[T]he action is fast and furious, the humor is abundant, characterizations are zany, and the boy genius works wonders — all of which add up to another wild ride for Artemis' fans." Booklist

Review:

"The plot is filled with crosses and double crosses, unmarked vans, and impenetrable security systems. It's exciting stuff, but the writing is often cliched at worst, and merely workmanlike at best." School Library Journal

Review:

"In this third book, [Artemis] still schemes and there is plenty of action, but his reflections have made him respectful and he seems a more genuine character." Children's Literature

Review:

"Readers who made the first two Artemis Fowl books bestsellers will also enjoy this latest installment, which again features Colfer's trademark broad humor, engaging if flat characters, and high-speed action..." VOYA

Review:

"The combination of fantasy, action and humor makes for another page-turning adventure, with lots of snappy dialog and technology along the way." KLIATT

Synopsis:

After Artemis uses stolen fairy technology to create a powerful microcomputer and it is snatched by a dangerous American businessman, Artemis, Juliet, Mulch, and the fairies join forces to try to retrieve it.

Eoin Colfer is an author who writes for children, but entertains adults alike when they read these books. This book is written with wit, charm and intelligence. This tale of a sassy spitfire teen who turns the predictable upside down is so much fun to read.
