What follows is Artemis's desperate plea to the fairies to help heal Butler and rescue the C Cube from evil Spiro, before he becomes aware of the Fairy World and wreaks havoc on the creatures living below ground. As Captain Holly Short is once again drawn into one of Artemis's dangerous schemes, she does so, along with Commander Root, with one condition--when the C Cube is recovered, Artemis, Butler, and Butler's sister, Juliet, will all submit to mind wipes, erasing every trace of the fairies from their memories. Artemis agrees, desperate to save Butler's life, but already he has plans to avoid the erasure of a mind wipe.
THE ETERNITY CODE contains a lot more action-adventure than the two previous books, and a lot less of the world of Fairy. It is, though, still a very fast-paced, enjoyable read, and I'm left wanting to know what will happen next. Thoroughly entertaining, and highly recommended.

SF is mostly a world of science and incredible technologies.
Fantasy is a world of magic and witchcraft.
Colfer created a whole universe where magic and technologies meet and mix... It's like Steve Jobs meeting Merlin!
Besides, like with The Harry Potter books, mom and dad can order it and pretend it's for the kids!
Dans le tome n°3, on est tenu en haleine jusqu'au dernier chapitre, le suspens étant un ingrédient que je considère comme indispensable dans un livre.
Ce qui m'a le plus "accroché" dans ces livres, c'est le fait que le héros soit le méchant et qu'il se paye la tête de tout le monde. Enfin un héros qui ne pense qu'à lui! De plus, il est décrit comme ayant le physique d'un vampire et avec des yeux bleus. Moi qui adore les ténébreux surdoués avec des idées machiavéliques, je suis immédiatement tombée sous le charme du personnage.
Il ne me reste plus qu'à dire "Vive Eoin Colfer et longue vie à mon Chasseur et vampire préféré!"

Artemis Fowl is coming to grips with the return of his kidnapped father and Fowl Sr.'s newly formed conscience. His parents are insisting on turning around the illegal enterprises of the Fowl Family, but Artemis isn't so sure. Still, in an effort to please his parents, he decides that he will commit just one last crime. Just a tiny one.
But, Artemis didn't count on the operation blowing up in his face. When he meets with American master criminal Jon Spiro, he didn't realize he was being set up. All Artemis wanted to do was intimidate him a little bit with his new "C Cube", a hybrid of fairy and human technology decades ahead of its time; it will render all other technologies--like the ones Spiro creates--obsolete. So when Spiro steals the Cube and mortally wounds Butler in an attempt to murder Artemis, the young master criminal is forced to seek the aid of his long-time adversaries.
The Fairies are less than pleased when Artemis reveals his loss of the fairy technology, that, in the wrong hands, would be capable of revealing the entire Fairy civilization. Determined to steal back the C Cube, Artemis enlists the aid of Captain Holly Short and the Fairy criminal Mulch Diggums in a risky operation that takes place in Chicago.
Great fun! Colfer exercises his great prowess as a writer as he seamlessly winds the third story of Artemis Fowl. The funny, witty characters manage to be charming and tough. The only qualm I had was that Holly and Artemis had less interaction that they did in #2, which would have added even more humor to the novel. We also get to know Juliet Butler better, which is a good addition to the story.
Okay, do you really have to read this review to know you NEED TO READ this book? I didn't think so. If you haven't, read the others first. And when you have finished all three, you'll be hoping that Colfer will produce a fourth (its rumored that it will be quartet.)
So Happy Reading! You'll have lots of fun with this one...
Artemis has used his ill-gotten fairy gadgets to create an electronic device the same size as, and a gazillion times more complex than Rubik's Cube. There's just one drawback - and of course it's a BIGGIE - it provides an access route to the Lower Elements, endangering the fairy way of life.
Having accidentally handed the cube on a platter to Jon Spiro, a ruthless American businessman, Artemis is faced with the challenge of his life, but he's helpless without the good folk of Haven City - plus reinforcements.
This time, Artemis needs two strong women behind him to make him look good - the fairy of his dreams, Captain Holly Short (a Sandra Bullock/Kim Possible mix) and Juliet Butler (a Lucy Liu/Uma Thurman type). Teamed with the dwarf digging sensation, and Haven City's resident centaur genius, Artemis still has to use every last ounce of his cunning and intellect to formulate a retrieval plan, while surprises lurk around every corner.
Can Jon Spiro break the Eternity Code before Artemis can retrieve the cube?
Can Artemis survive this last encounter?
Can the LEP mind wipe make Artemis forget his friends and adventures?
Can Artemis give up his life of crime and become a part of a normal family unit?
The first three answers will be revealed to you as you read this book.
The last? Yeah right!!
There's never a dull moment in this book, and it's Colfer at his funniest.

As his father is now alive and ...moralistic, Artemis swears this is his last plot before turning back to a "normal" childhood. Artemis shows businessman Spiro his technological wonder of the C Cube, which results in the C Cube being stolen, Butler shot, and all round chaos.
Luckily, Butler is healed by no other than Holly Short, though he has aged 15 years. Thus begins a whirlwind adventure of getting back the C Cube and preventing a species war on Earth...
I would highly recommend this book for all ages, as this book is full of wit and glamour.
