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 wondersall 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
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
