Praise for Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code"

Readers will burn the midnight oil to the finish." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

...the 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"

Colfer's young antihero might be getting more likeable all the time, but that hasn't taken the edge off the Tom-Clancy-meets-Harry-Potter action." - Amazon.com

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Gr 6-8 Artemis Fowl has one last deal to pull off before he quits his life of crime. The plan falls through, and the valuable C Cube, a computer powered by fairy technology, ends up in the hands of a ruthless enemy. The book's complex plot points and action have been effectively condensed into a tense, tautly wound story, and the opening synopsis will orient readers new to the series. The full-color art is stylish and unique, with delicate lines and stylized features that give it an ornate, gothic feel. The brooding tones, edgy illustrations, and depiction of gun violence will appeal to Artemis Fowl's many fans. Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY—SLJ
Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
Artemis Fowl is on another adventure. Now that his father is finally awakening from a coma, Artemis decides to do one last scheme to boost the family’s income. Unfortunately, his bodyguard Butler has been mortally injured—or so it seems. Fowl has a connection with a certain LEP fairy who has the ability to heal Butler. The only problem is that they’re not the best of friends lately, and Butler will never be the same powerhouse he was previously. Artemis enlists Captain Holly Short, Butler’s sister Juliet (who just so happens to be following in her brother’s footsteps) and Mulch Diggums, a ground-guzzling tunnel dwarf to outsmart the greedy, power hungry and despicable Jon Spiro. They battle over the C Cube a powerful, verbally controlled computer that can do everything—including making all other technology obsolete. The C Cube is also a phone and a 3D TV. Artemis is physically overpowered by Jon Spiro and his powerful body guard Arno Blunt, but no one can out-clever Artemis Fowl. Do not be fooled by the fact that he is only a kid. He can pretty much do anything that he sets his powerful mind to, plus he has that touch of fairy magic on his side. Extremely detailed artwork brings the world of Artemis Fowl to life. Different colored squares keep the characters’ inner dialogue separate, and Colfer’s blunt-talking characters practically jump off the page. In alternating chapters, readers are taken into the crazy lives of both Artemis and Captain Holly Short, who are extremely interesting characters that one would follow no matter what the storyline. This is what is called a real “page turner.” This briefer, graphic version of a previously-published novel has lost nothing in the interpretation. Well done. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan; Ages 11 to 15.
