Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code Background

Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code is the third book in the Artemis Fowl series, which consists of eight science fiction, fantasy, and children’s literature books. The series is written by the Irish author Eoin Colfer and was released between 2001-2012. The Eternity Code was released on 27th April 2003 by Viking Press in print media holding 352 pages, as well as an audiobook.

The third book in the Artemis Fowl series begins where the second book ends after Artemis saves his father after he was captured by the Russian Mafia. Several characters from the two preceding books are presented, such as Artemis himself, Butler, and Holly Short. Artemis makes a “C Cube” which holds more technological intelligence than anything a human has ever made before, but it is stolen. In The Eternity Code, Artemis makes a plan of how he can get it back.

The third installment in a series is often viewed as a pivot point in the series, in which Artemis becomes the protagonist instead of the antagonist. Initially, Artemis only had his fortune and plans in mind, not caring for the consequences his actions would have on the fairies. This changes and Artemis begins working with and for the fairies, instead of against them. The book follows Artemis as he attempts to outsmart his enemies to recover his stolen C Cube. He manages to enlist the help of his old friends, Butler and Holly Short, who by this time have become full-fledged members of the fairy world, and use their combined knowledge and resources to help him get back the cube. Despite their efforts, they are unable to locate the cube and are forced to make a deal with the mafia to get it back. Though they manage to get the cube back, they soon discover that the cube has been modified and is now linked to a supercomputer, known as the ‘Eternity Code’. This leads them on a mission to discover what the code is and how it works.

The Eternity Code was well received by readers, as well as critics. The book was praised for its clever plot and witty dialogue. The characters also received praise, with readers applauding the development of their personalities and relationships. The book was also praised for its unique and interesting setting, as it is set in a world full of magical creatures, technology, and danger.

The book also raises some interesting and important themes, such as power, morality, and the consequences of one’s actions. As the story progresses, readers can watch Artemis grapple with the moral implications of his actions, as well as how to use his power responsibly.

Overall, Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code is an entertaining and clever read, with plenty of action and adventure. With its unique setting and intriguing characters, readers will be sure to be captivated by the story and kept engrossed throughout.
