There is no excuse for a children's book to be shoddy. I'm not ashamed of reading children's books, but I do wish authors would try a little harder. Colfer has a good mind and a great deal of potential to write we ...more
But I do feel that there was just a little too much going on for me, and a lot of new characters.

But there are some interesting developments that are key in book too and definitely worth the ...more
When the fairy folk decided to live underground to keep their world a secret from humans, the Demons refused to join them. Instead, the Demons chose to move their island home to another dimension where they could hide until they were strong enough to defeat the humans.

HOLY CRAP!! I'm almost done with this book (on CD)...!!! It's SO GOOD!! SO INTENSE!!!
In most of the books there was one problem that Artemis, Holly, Butler, Mulch, and Foaly were trying to stop. In this book there were multiple problems, and multiple people with different motivations all going after the same thing while the group tried to defend it.

This book impressed me by the good details and the knowledge in the book. When Eoin Colfer said that the Artemis Fowl had 200+ IQ, I didn't necessarily believed him since in the books I have read in the series, it didn't say much about Artemis Fowl's great IQ.

When it became clear to the fairy families that they could never win, they decided to move their civilization underground and keep themselves hidden from the humans. All the fairy families agreed on this, except the 8th family, the demons.
The demons planned to lift their small island out of time until they had regrouped and were ready to wage war on the humans once more. However the time spell w
