Summary

Summary

Book Two-Now available in mass market paperback
Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he suddenly receives an urgent video e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from his father, who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafiya. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.
"A cracking good read."-Publishers Weekly
"The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away. . ."-Entertainment Weekly (review: A-)

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

Holly Short and Artemis Fowl find themselves uneasily on the same side as they deflect a palace coup in the Lower Elements, and, up above, try to rescue Artemis's father from kidnappers. The two plot strands aren't sufficiently entwined, and an excess of action sequences and high-tech fairy fighting gear give the book a frenetic quality. But fans of the first book will be undeterred.
