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

The elves are focused on in this book, and Artemis's genius is rather downplayed. I still loved it. The chemistry between the characters was great. Read full review
