Book 8 Artemis Fowl series
Power hungry, evil pixie Opal Koboi is back, she is far from done, and is now plotting to get rid of all mankind in her quest to become the fairy queen. It is an ambitious and heartless plan, she cares nothing for those she uses and less for those who will die. The icing on the cake will be to take down Artemis, Holly and Foaly. This is very personal for her.
Artemis and his friends aren’t about to let this happen without a fight, especially when it appears Opal has found a way to drag Artemis’ two four year old brothers into her plotting. This is not how it was supposed to end. Will Artemis be able to come up with a plan to foil Opal and prevent the end of the world?
A fitting end to the anti-hero that is Artemis Fowl. Artemis is a great character, clever and so much fun. Holly is a wonderful partner; brave, brazen and as determined as the young human. Foaly brings a great element of fun and Butler grounds it all in humanity. Together these core characters have taken us through some great adventures and this is no exception. Colfer has delivered an entertaining final chapter set in a place that stands apart in its blend of magic, technology and the world as we know it. The way he has been able to have to two worlds function separately yet be part of the same thing has been a joy to read, and lets face it who wouldn’t love to read about a boy billionaire/evil genius. The camaraderie and bonds between the characters have been well established over previous books and he doesn’t let these foundations slip as he takes us to its conclusion.
I have been a fan of these books for years and still think they are great fun, I’m sad to see the series end but it was a good place and way to do so. I am looking forward to Colfer’s next book.
