3 1/2 stars (rounded up to 4 on my shelf)
****SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ BOOKS 1 & 2 in the Artemis Fowl Series****
The Eternity Code is the third book in the Artemis Fowl series. Artemis Fowl Sr. is now a changed man. He has decided that the Fowl family will be giving up its criminal ways and that there are more important things in life than making money. Artemis Jr. has decided that he wants one last big caper before he goes legit. Using stolen fairy technology he develops a computer device that can do anything with a simple command. He wants to use the availability of this technology to extort money from American business man Jon Spiro. The deal goes bad, and for the first time in his young life Artemis is the one that has been bamboozled. Butler, Artemis' bodyguard, is mortally wounded in the altercation and Artemis knows that the only chance his body guard has to survive is if he can convince a fairy to heal him. Will he be able to count on the fairies for their help and can he recover the device before the knowledge of the fairy world is discovered by Spiro.
This was another fun read in the Artemis Fowl series. Of the first three books I have read, it was probably my least favorite. All of my favorite characters are back but the challenge of the book seemed like it was a much smaller scale operation than the first two books. What I did enjoy was the character development of the book. In the second book Artemis heart started to thaw out a little bit, and in this book he develops further. A lot of the book sets up future books in the series and I am looking forward to seeing how new developments at the end of the book affect Artemis and his new found respect for others.
