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.

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.
fun, adventure, suspenceful
i liked the action the journey the question will opal win or will Artemis out smart her?
he did amazing he brought all the characters to life i thoroughly enjoyed it
opals final revenge will Artemis win or will the world come to an end?
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
This was a good listen. I thought the ending was good up to a point but didn't reinforce the boy genius paradigm.
Of course Mulch Diggins. Like the Energizer Bunny her keeps on tickin' on.
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.
When Opal got her comeuppance.
Really great listen. Felt in an attempt to make Artemis more human, it made him dumber.
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!
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.
I found the book to be entertaining for both my 10 year old girl as well as myself. When started following this story about two years ago and haven't been disappointed.
The book is a child's level of "LORD OF THE RINGS". It has problem solving scenes that help the kids learn how to keep trying even when all seems lost.
I enjoyed the artificial intelligence of Follie's car. This is the car we all dream about as children.
The problem now a days is that We can't listen or read anything in one sitting. I will tell you that my daughter looked for a few mins. to turn the book on.
Clean books please
Action, Peril, Intrigue
My favorite character as always is the tough, ready for action Holly. She is no nonsense with just a pinch of softness at the center.
Nathaniel Parker is in a race for #1 narrator/performer in my book. I go back and forth with Jim Dale. I remarked again at hearing this book..."Nathaniel Parker is the best" but if Jim Dale comes out with another narration, I might swing back the other way...who knows?
This could be the end of everything as we know it.
