This penultimate Artemis Fowl adventure delivers action, a conniving criminal, squishy robots, a giant squid, fairy psychosis, gassy dwarfs, and pro Mexican wrestling. You know, the usual, at least for Artemis and friends. Readers of the Artemis Fowl series are never bored, because Irish author Eoin Colfer always keeps his characters on the move and plotting. It's hard for Artemis to be as in control of the plotting in The Atlantis Complex as he usually is because of the fairy psychosis brewing in his brain. His mental state is yet another adversary for Artemis to face and makes him rely on friends more than usual here.

The main villain, Turnball, proves just as deliciously devious as Opal Kobai from earlier books, and with a surprising softer side, too. As his plans slowly unfold from his Atlantis prison cell, the old Artemis crew assembles to face him. Mulch Diggums always has a role to play, and a gassy one, along with Butler and Juliet, who have their own separate misadventures at the start of the story -- that's where the Mexican wrestling comes in. The Atlantis Complex closes with no hint of how the finale will play out, but with so much exciting fodder thus far, there's no need for spoilers.
