Actually, it may be closer to a 3.49. I love the idea of the main character, Artemis, being an anti-social 12-year genius criminal mastermind and yes, his plan is quite masterful. I was surprised by the little twists and turns of the plot. It wasn't anything complex, rather the whole book is just a complex hostage negotiation, but I definitely give Artemis mad props for the conclusion, in that everyone comes out happy in the end.

I do wish there was more of Artemis in the plot. I find him an intriguing character and, scarily, rather easy to identify myself with. I like the little glimpses into his mind and the author's back and forth as to whether Artemis even had a heart at all. I simply adore his bodyguard/butler, Butler.

I was rather tired of the fairies after a while. And, for me personally, every time we had to deal with Captain Holly Short or the other fairies, I felt the book just start to draaaggggg. I'm undecided as to whether I want to read the rest of the series.
