“Can we please focus? We are supposed to be professionals.” Holly said
“Not me!” said Orion cheerily, “I’m just a Teenager with hormones running wild and may I say, young fairy lady, they’re running wild in your direction.”
Artemis & Orion
Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?
Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common among guilt-ridden fairies — not humans — and most likely triggered by Artemis’s dabbling with fairy magic. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.
Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind — and the grips of a giant squid — in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?
I’ve been addicted to the Artemis Fowl series for . . . Well, years now. I’ve been excited to read this latest edition for a while now. Artemis is, once again, drawn into an intense life-or-death situation. This time, however, one of his various enemies is his own mind . . .
This has to be the most hilarious of the Artemis Fowl books. Once Orion is introduced, I couldn’t stop smiling while I was reading! This book series leans toward a younger set of readers, but I find it perfectly enjoyable. This novel was no different.
This book has criminal masterminds, fairy soldiers, Mexican wrestling, evil bubbles, and killer number fours. Because of the above, and much else, you should definitely check this book out.
I give The Atlantis Complex 5/5 stars. It was great!
