Five stars for the series as a whole.This final Artemis Fowl novel is just as intelligent, creative, and hilarious as its predecessors. All of the characters we’ve come to know and love have their moment in the spotlight, along with Artemis’ little brothers Myles and Beckett, who are comically adorable, mini-geniuses in their own right. Although the big reveal of Artemis’ ultimate scheme is somewhat predictable, it’s still emotional and gut-wrenching, and I couldn’t keep myself from crying. I have never been more sad about the end of a series, not because the ending itself is sad, but because it means that I won’t have any more new adventures with Artemis, Holly, Butler, Mulch, and Foaly. It feels like these characters have become my friends, and I don’t want their story to be over. I guess I’ll just have to be content with rereading the books from the beginning and experiencing this amazing series all over again. Thank you, Mr. Colfer, for giving this story to the world; it made my childhood and my life more magical.
Artemis Fowl, a boy who is a great inventor, is mischievious and kind. Artemis Fowl and his friends are out to stop an evil pixie named Opal Koboi. Artimis Fowl uses the plan he invented, a solar plane that has super laser in the nose, for a special mission.
In this final installment of the Artemis Fowl series, Eoin Colfer takes on a roller coaster of a ride. Opal is back with a vengeance and a plan to destroy humanity. Just like [author:J.K. Rowling|1077326] did in [book:Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows|136251], Colfer takes you to the edge of your seat wondering if humanity will survive this final Koboi plot. Fans of series will be pleased with the book's ending as it shows how much Artemis has grown and changed over the course of eight books. It might be handy to keep the kleenex nearby.
This was a fine ending to the series (especially after the no-so-good Atlantis Complex)--getting back to the crazy action scenes from the earlier books. This book definitely has the ensemble cast in it with less of Artemis' grand plans--those were lacking in this book as the good guys seemed to be playing catch-up a lot. Opal makes a great villain and the ending was even mostly satisfying although a little cheesy.
