A new Artemis...

Having read the previous Artemis Fowl books, this is a nice conclusion. Only Opal could pull it off. A warning:There is a death of a major character at the beginning. It is a bit shocking. This book is very fast paced. You will hardly have time to catch your breath. Well worth reading.

the 3rd book was certainly not the last book in the series, as we can tell. artemis gets himself and holly into a real problem. there is really only one way to describe this book: TROLL NASTY. i love it!
