Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Good but not the best!!"

    Another good book for the series. However, the story was not taking me in... I was not left with the "I want more" factor.

    The perfect end to a great series. I wish it was longer. Perhaps a bit easy at the very end, but still awesome!

    "One of the greatest reads of our time."

    Phenomenal book!

    Gets better every time I listen to it.
    Not many authors could pull off this reading. Couldn't have been a better narrator picked for this book.

    "great book, but...."

    it really needs a few more books to make it feel compete :-) . so many unanswered questions at the end of this book. and the characters were all awesome, it's just too sad to see the series end.

    "i loved this story and the narration"
    If you could sum up The Last Guardian in three words, what would they be?

    fun, adventure, suspenceful


    What did you like best about this story?

    i liked the action the journey the question will opal win or will Artemis out smart her?


    What about Nathaniel Parker’s performance did you like?

    he did amazing he brought all the characters to life i thoroughly enjoyed it


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    opals final revenge will Artemis win or will the world come to an end?


    Any additional comments?

    i hope their is another book on the way i love Artemis fowl i cant imagine his adventures coming to an end i cant say why cause it would destroy the ending but you defiantly have potential for another few books will he choose the right path who knows

    Story
    "Don't skip ahead"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a good listen. I thought the ending was good up to a point but didn't reinforce the boy genius paradigm.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Mulch Diggins. Like the Energizer Bunny her keeps on tickin' on.


    What about Nathaniel Parker’s performance did you like?

    He was perfect, as always. He does consistently the voices in a way where the listener can distinguish between characters and tell their unique characteristics.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Opal got her comeuppance.


    Any additional comments?

    Really great listen. Felt in an attempt to make Artemis more human, it made him dumber.

    "Sadly, all good things must come to an end"

    This was an amazing adventure that truly showcased how far Artemis Fowl progressed as a person since he first the met the faeries so many books ago. I thoroughly enjoyed getting a glimpse into the back stories of a few of our favorite recurring characters – especially Foaly!

    This book had so many amazing moments that illustrated the incredible bond between Artemis, Holly and Butler. The trio of friends has been through so much together, and at a few points, I actually cried as they struggled to defeat Opal and realized they might not succeed.

    My only complaint with the book is that I would have liked to have seen some resolution to the Artemis/Holly storyline that has been teased for so long. I felt like it could have been resolved, but it wasn’t.However, the ending to the book did the series justice and brought it back full circle.

    Colfer has said he’s done with this series, but I sincerely hope we get to see our teen genius and LEPrecon commander again someday!

    "Artemis Fowl Enters the Weird"

    I have been listening to the Artemis Fowl series and have gone through everyone and thought that they were great. This one strays into downright weird territory. The book was fine until the end. Without giving it away, I would say that the ending was not in character with the rest of the series. It also seemed like it was rushed and did not make a lot of sense. Artemis and gang once again save the world but the soul inhabiting the bodies didn't work for the ending. I am glad that I listened to it but am unsure about my 8 year understanding the whole concept. Like I said the ending where Artemis gets "Rescued" is strange at best.
