Good ending to a delightful series. Sad to see the story of Artemis and his fairy buddies coming to a close! ( )
  PerpetualRevision | Oct 25, 2015 |
The final installment in the Artemis Fowl series or so it would seem. Opal Koboi has her biggest take over the world plot, Mulch Diggums has his biggest flatulence, and Artemis has his ultimate moment of genius. And sacrifice. Colfer's humor stands out as Koboi raises an army with her minions occupying the bodies of the dead with comic results. It's a nice distraction from the grim reality of a story that puts the entire world in peril. This is a strong finale the series. ( )

I would give this 4.5 stars. Possibly my favorite Artemis Fowl book and an awesome end to the series. I hardly ever read the second book in a series, let alone the entire thing. It was the humor that really kept me going. The characters are super fun too. And the narrator? Awesome. In fact, I highly suggest listening to this series, even if you're normally not a fan of audiobooks. He's that good. ( )

The final book in the Artemis Fowl series. This conclusion to the series is about Artemis's arch enemy using one last plan to bring the human and fairy world to their knees. This book will keep you excited throughout it and you'll have to read it to see what happens. I love the Artemis Fowl books. So i also enjoyed this one too, it has everything i wanted except a little more planning maybe. I would love to read others of Eoin's books like The Supernaturalist. I would reccomend this book to any fantasy lover, well, any book lover really. This series is a great one and its going to be hard to find a series better then this one. ( )

An ending that is worth waiting for. Artemis' full transformation is amazing. Again, a kid's book but a short fun read. Artemis is one of my favorite boy geniuses. ( )

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..."
