It's Armageddon Time for Artemis Fowl

Opal Koboi, power-crazed pixie, is plotting to exterminate mankind and become fairy queen.

If she succeeds, the spirits of long-dead fairy warriors will rise from the earth, inhabit the nearest available bodies and wreak mass destruction. But what happens if those nearest bodies include crows, or deer, or badgers - or two curious little boys by the names of Myles and Beckett Fowl?

Yes, it's true. Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl's four-year-old brothers could be involved in destroying the human race. Can Artemis and Captain Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police stop Opal and prevent the end of the world?


Reading this book was very bittersweet for me. Artemis Fowl is the last series that I have been reading since I was a kid (okay, high school) that hasn’t finished yet… and now it has. It’s been a tough few years – Harry Potter’s done, the Hunger Games are done, and now even Artemis Fowl’s all finished.

That said, however, I couldn’t’ve asked for a better ending. No spoilers, though.

I felt like I could have read this book in an hour. The writing was a fresh as ever, and all the favorite characters make at least a brief appearance… right down to Foaly’s wife and Butler’s sister.

To be honest, I don’t have a lot to say, which is much the way it goes when I’ve finished a beloved series.

To summarise? I could not ask for more. Thank you, Mr. Colfer.
