"A part of Artemis was horrified by this newfound superstition about numbers"
Artemis Fowl is not himself and it seems overexposure to the fairy world is to blame. Cut adrift from his ever faithful Butler ( who has his own adventures to deal with) things could get rather dicey for our usually evil tween mastermind.
Trapped deep in the recesses of his own mind courtesy of the titular Atlantis Complex, our anti-hero might now be in real danger. That being said, I kind of switched off on this outing. Artemis not being himself, makes his complex self a lot less interesting. This one feels like a speed bump as we await the final chapter. Hopefully that will be more enjoyable, although this is perfectly readable as always.
