I was honored with the task to review book 7 of the Artemis Fowl series and a preview of book 8 – The Atlantis Complex and The Last Guardian for netgalley.com. Book 7 finds Artemis with a change in his personality, both good and bad. He now wants to help the fairy community and save the world, but he has contracted Atlantis Complex which leaves him highly paranoid of those around him and the number four which he equates with death. Artemis has called a meeting in Iceland with key fairy people, including Captain Holly Short and Foaly, to discuss an invention of his that will help with the global warming.
The Atantis Complex is full of intrigue, danger, and excitement. Artemis’ genius is stretched to the limit with solving the latest caper while he is suffering with paranoia, another personality that emerges, and the fear of the number four. He had sent his faithful bodyguard Butler on what he thought would be a goose chase but turned out to be part of the overall caper and danger. By the end of the book, of course all is well with Artemis but his old nemesis Opal Koboi is re-emerging to wreak havoc on both the human and fairy worlds which leads to the final book.
The Last Guardian introduces another facet of the fairy world. A very dangerous facet. Opal Koboi is set to unleash this danger upon the human and fairy world. Will Artemis save both? Will Opal succeed? Readers will have to purchase the book to answer those questions.
I reviewed this book free for review from netgalley.com.
