School Library Journal Review

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 (c) Copyright 2013.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In the second and third books in the series about the 13-year-old criminal mastermind, he proves he has a heart after all (in the former), and, in the latter, craves one more adventure before he turns to the straight and narrow. "Rapid-fire dialogue and wise-acre humor ensure that readers will burn the midnight oil," said PW in a starred review of Eternity Code. Ages 10-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Horn Book Review

Artemis and Captain Holly Short are at it again, this time attempting to thwart the evil Spiro's theft of an ingenious device Artemis has designed that (inadvertently) puts the fairy world in danger. There's plenty of snappy dialogue, badass posturing, and blow-by-blow fight scenes, but by the end the characters and story are right back where they started, which means that the next book in the series is completely free to do the same thing all over again.

Booklist Review

Gr. 6-9. Could this be Artemis Fowl's last caper? His father, who was rescued from the Russian Mafia in Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident0 (2002), seems to have turned over a new leaf. But Artemis resolves to do one last job, a job that involves a supercomputer cube he created with stolen fairy technology. Things go totally awry, however, when his proposed pigeon--a billionaire American businessman--turns the tables and Artemis' longtime bodyguard, Butler, is fatally shot. Artemis puts Butler on ice, literally, and calls on Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police for help. The existence of the cube is a threat to the fairy world, and Artemis concocts a convoluted scheme to recover it. As in the previous two books in the series, 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. --Sally Estes Copyright 2003 Booklist
