9780141340760: Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian

Is this Artemis fowl’s Last stand?
Artemis Fowl’s archenemy Opal Koboi has masterminded a way to simultaneously secure her release from prison and bring the human and fairy worlds to their knees. And, unless Artemis can stop her, the evil pixie’s next move will destroy all human life on earth.
            Ground zero is the Fowl Estate, where Opal has reanimated fairy warriors who were buried there thousands of years ago. Their spirits have possessed any vessels they can find—corpses, Artemis’s little brothers, assorted wildlife—and they are bound to obey Opal’s every command. Defeating the motley troops and their diabolical leader will require all of Artemis’s cleverness—as well as Butler’s bravery, Holly’s skill, and Foaly’s gadgetry. But if their best efforts aren’t enough, Armageddon will surely follow.
            New York Times best-selling author and comic genius Eoin Colfer will leave Artemis Fowl fans gasping up to the very end of this thrilling finale to the blockbuster series.

Amazon Exclusive: Artemis Fowl's Favorite Books

Artemis Fowl

Even teenage masterminds have some downtime to read. Here Artemis Fowl shares some of his favorite books and what he likes about them.

  • Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  • Tom Sawyer is generally credited with being the brains of this juvenile outfit, but he was a mere buffoon compared to Huck. Tom with his fence painting con thought small while Huckleberry could see the big picture.

  • The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
  • Nice Gothic artwork and Miller's Batman shows us that sometimes you have to be bad to be good. A nice motto to live by.

  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  • Adams puts forward some interesting hypotheses and sometimes his predictions have actually come to pass. And even when his ideas have been proven wrong they were mildly amusing to read.

  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  • A classic tome, nicely written apart from Dickens' characteristic overuse of adjective and adverb. All very realistic until the last chapter when Sydney Carton sacrifices himself for another. Highly unlikely given the man's character. To give one's life for another when both bodies contain roughly the same amount of energy? I fail to see the point.

  • Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
  • Of course this book should be entitled The Adventures of Captain Hook. What a character? The perfect villain. Sadly Barrie bowed to conventional storytelling by allowing the Pan character to vanquish James Hook, but in real life I'll wager that the Captain would prevail.

About the Author:

Eoin Colfer is the New York Times best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, as well as Plugged, Airman, The Supernaturalist, and many other popular books. He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.
