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.

    A fantasy audiobook that takes me far away from the road increases my quality of life with every new title I 'read'.

    "There were almost tears"

    I was surprised at the outcome at the end. How could this 8th book finish a series that I'd been listening to since I was 11 (over and over again)? The moment the book ended (no spoilers) I was pleasantly surprised at a large tug at my heart that made me want to cry. I recognized reference to the first book immediately (which I listened to so many times 10 years ago) so I suggest anyone to read/listen to book 1 and 7 before diving into this lovely last book.

    "No more Artemis? 😣"

    I have been reading this series for years. It's clever, funny, totally entertaining. I love the characters, and the stories. I'm disappointed the series is ended, but all good things must come to an end. Maybe someone in Hollywood will finally read it and make the movies I've been waiting for. Also I love the reader Nathaniel Parker. I listened to an Artemis book not read by him and I really missed his Irish accent

    "It broke my heart.💔"

    I literally cried at the end, not making any sound.

    I really love this book more than the other ones of the series.
    When it broke my heart, was when Artemis 'died'. I was so glad that he had came back to life with the help of Foaly. I'm REALLY emotional yay see, so you can get the whole picture of what happened to me. (😭😭😭😭😭 was what basely happened)

    "addictive series"

    I've thoroughly enjoyed this series. It's completely as addictive as Harry Potter. From start to finish it pulls you on and won't let go.

    "loved it as I do all the books in this series."

    I love the whole series of Artemis fowl books, I believe this was an amazing finish to an amazing series. I truly think this is a great series for all young imaginative people and not so young ones for an occasional escape from reality

    "A Perfect Conclusion"

    Spoiler Alert... the end is a loop back to the beginning of the first book, adding deeper meaning to the whole series via a strong emotional connection.

    Story
    "Incredibly Entertaining"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Guardian to be better than the print version?

    The story is fantastic and the audio edition is brilliant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Colfer's storylines only get better and better as the series goes on. This final story is superb.


    Have you listened to any of Nathaniel Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nathaniel Parker's narration is, as I wrote above, brilliant. I believe it helped to make the stories even better.


    Any additional comments?

    My family and I loved all the stories and highly recommend them to those who enjoy fantasy.
