Summary

Summary

[Artemis Fowl] will grab your interest, no matter what your age. -The New York Post; Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world's greatest teenage criminal mastermind? Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common in guilt-ridden fairies. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy. Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly's past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind-and the grips of a giant squid-in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants? Artemis Fowl has lost his mind... Just when the world needs him most.

Horn Book Review

Artemis Fowl is suffering from the Atlantis Complex, a fairy mental disorder that makes him obsessive and delusional. In spite of his confusion, he needs to save the underwater city of Atlantis from an evil fairy, with help from Butler, Holly, and other returning characters. Entertaining action scenes will appeal to this series' many fans, who will enjoy the familiar but formulaic fun. (c) Copyright 2011.

Booklist Review

In the seventh Artemis Fowl title, the 15-year-old mastermind focuses his ingenuity on global warming while struggling with a devastating illness. After Artemis invites four fairy friends to Iceland for a demonstration of his latest invention, the Ice Cube, it becomes clear that he is suffering from the Atlantis Complex, which manifests as obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, and multiple personalities. If this weren't enough to worry about, a spaceship crashes and disgorges amorphobots programmed to kill. Colfer keeps the action moving with laughs and gadgetry as he bounces between several plotlines that spotlight peripheral characters. A treat for series fans.--Rutan, Lynn Copyright 2010 Booklist
