Artemis Fowl has again masterminded a suspenseful, comic story of a evil pixie, and fairy warriors. Artemis will need all his cleverness along with his friend’s skills to save the day. Nathaniel Parker does a fabulous job with all the different voices.

Well its over. I had enjoyed Artemis's exploits up to the third maybe fourth book. But the ending on this one is bad.Spoiler: Not a young adults book at all where the hero is made to die and then come back. I cannot recommend this book actually. To short rushed ending. Contrived and convoluted and very very angry. I'm actually glad its over. Almost as bad as the Scott books. ( )

Very clever (like all the Artemis Fowl Books). Some of the details surrounding Opal's master plot were confusing (perhaps because I listened rather than read the book) but overall worth reading. ( )

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. ( )

Good ending to a delightful series. Sad to see the story of Artemis and his fairy buddies coming to a close! ( )

For all the Fowl fans who journeyed to the Lower Elements with me. Thank you.
First words
The Berserkers lay arranged in a spiral under the rune stone, looping down, down into the earth - boots out, heads in, as the spell demanded.
"I want you to know, my dear friend, that without you, I would not be the person I am today. I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you."  -Artemis Fowl
"Tell me," Artemis said, his voice still weak. "How do I know you?" And so Holly began her story: "It all started in Ho Chi Minh City one summer. It was sweltering by anyone's standards. Needless to say, Artemis Fowl would not have been willing to put up with such discomfort if something extremely important had not been at stake. Important to the plan..."
