“Daddy just finished this book after I got him into Artemis Fowl a few years ago. He's reading them in order so next stop The Time Paradox!
Love Graeme's Sprog”
“This was enjoyable yet it felt like a mellow read that was evenly-paced with not as much wit and humor as the other books. I was left wanting more time with Holly and Mulch as partners. What a terrific odd couple. The unexpected female rival was fun-a 12 year old genius French girl! Double the scheming. I also liked the unique storyline with demons. There was an interesting description of one of their voices sounding like crushed glass and grating steel. I loved the imp school with the riled up demons. No1 was refreshing the way he stood out among his mindless peers. I wonder if he will stick around further.
Given that time travel was forthcoming in the story, I had the thought that Artemis would go back to the time that Butler aged to reverse that sad happenstance. Oh well, wishful thinking.
Artemis becomes more compassionate as he matures with life experience. I understand the character development but I can’t help missing his more mischievous side. That being said, his struggle with the onset of puberty was hilarious. In frustration he said “it’s this blasted puberty, Butler. Every time I see a pretty girl, I waste valuable mind space thinking about her.” It got even better when it was mentioned that “instead of acne and mood swings, a pubescent warlock demon gets lightning bolts shooting out of his fingers. If he’s lucky.” To which Mulch quips “where do they shoot out of if he’s unlucky?” Yikes.
The coolest outcome in this story was Artemis gaining a newfound skill (I won’t spoil it) that could prove to be useful…or get him into trouble, either way it will be entertaining. The twist at the very end was fantastic. I could envision the look of terror on Artemis’s face.

“Possibly my favorite book in the series so far. Blended the real life issues (criminals like Billy Kong, and awesome heists) with fairy issues (demons, and the risk of demons being released into the real world). The twist ending was actually pretty shocking, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it impacts the last three books. Possibly my favorite scene was one that could've come off as cheesy; when Holly dies and Artemis goes 'back in time' and saves her. It was obvious Holly wasn't going to remain dead, but due to the coolness of the rescue, Colfer pulled it off.”Benjamin Drake wrote this review Thursday, August 15, 2013.
