The usual peril is boosted by bursts of emotionality. View all 26 comments. Jan 11, Daria rated it it was amazing. I'm a biased reader. I'm a hypocrite. I'm probably just a terrible person overall.
I'm sitting here, looking back at the first time I picked up Artemis Fowl , remembering how much I didn't love it at first. The Atlantis Complex fell out with the rest of the series, and, here we are with The L I'm a biased reader. The Atlantis Complex fell out with the rest of the series, and, here we are with The Last Guardian , at the ending - or, perhaps, the beginning - of all things.
I look back at this book and all the books that came before it, and I can't help loving them, rather like one can't help loving that one crazy and neurotic person in one's life. The series jumped around, hitting high points and low points, starting plot threads, forgetting characters, promising some directions and then reneging on those promises.
Yes, we never find out what happened to Minerva. Yah, I shipped Arty-Holly in vain. But through and through, The Last Guardian was another marvelous adventure, as nerdy and as outrageous as Artemis Fowl ever gets. Once a series goes past four books, forget about stability. The only books ever to work around this were the Harry Potter ones, but they had all been planned ahead.
So I'm prepared to forgive the lack of coordination. Artemis Fowl has a tendency to ignore simple physical constraints, like time and dimension; can we expect meek adventures from him? No, we cannot. And I think what has stayed constant throughout the books were the heroes themselves. Artemis, Holly, Butler, Mulch, Foaly - wherever they're off to next, we know they'll surely have each other's backs. In this final installment, those who made up the heart of the series were not forgotten.
They each made grandiose entrances and spectacular rescues, all without losing that snarky, geeky touch. These books were written to be fun. Heck, Eoin Colfer had more fun writing them than we probably did reading. And that's saying a lot. They're action-driven, spattered with sharp asides, and are stuffed with fictitious quantum physics theories.
And younger literature has become so gloomy these days, what with drippy teenage romances and things. It's always great to spend a couple of hours thwarting megalomaniac pixies. We can't read heavy college class lit books all day, everyday: and it is in this - in the easy, whimsical escape from reality - that Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian succeeds, completely and surely.
Okay, semi-professional review aside, I need to get feelings off my chest. No way. He actually did it. He wrote it! Those words. Oh man, those words. I can't believe it. Not Percy Jackson. Not Katniss Everdeen. Not even Harry Effing Potter! I almost believed them, too, as the last chapter rolled on and the camera zoomed out into a panoramic focus.
I'll admit I was stunned. Darn , I thought, darn it, Colfer, you're a tough one. But then, of course, it all looped back onto itself. I appreciated the last couple of sentences very much; it was a straightforward, honest invitation to pull a ten-year-old copy of the very first Artemis Fowl off my shelf, open the pages, and begin again.
Colfer's dedication here reads: "For all the Fowl fans who journeyed to the Lower Elements with me. Thank you. I'll revisit again, and again, and again, as I hope many children and teens and adults and, heck, old grannies in their rocking chairs do. There's been no finer team to save the world on a regular basis with. Re: "The Last Guardian" title and implication - I was right! Kind of. Well, tell me what you think. Even though The Atlantis Complex had been slightly out of tune with the rest of the series, The Last Guardian may yet prove to be a splendid, splendid tale.
One chapter in and we've already got a hostage crisis, and the world is at risk from nuclear fission and quantum physics. Now, to sit tight, and wait for July It sounds terribly What, with all these "last" titles - The Last Olympian , for example - we become even more depressed at the thought of the series ending. The Last Guardian Of Haven? Of the fairy world?

There was just the plasma of blackmagic holding their consciousness intact, and even thatwas dissipating, tainting the land, causing strange strainsof plants to appear and infecting the animals withuncommon aggression.

We are not all disappeared yet, thought Oro of theDanu, captain of the Berserkers. We are ready to seizeour glorious moment when it comes and to sow chaosamong the humans.
Artemis Fowl is no stranger to trouble. In fact he's a magnet for it. Man-eating trolls, armed and dangerous not to mention high-tech fairies, flame-throwing goblins - he's seen the lot. Publication date Books to Borrow. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive Books.

The novel received generally positive reviews, winning the award for the Senior Irish Children's Book of the Year. Just as Artemis leaves his final session of therapy for Atlantis Complex, he and Butler are summoned by Holly to the office of Commander Trouble Kelp, where they witness the next plan of Opal Koboi ; she has two of her underlings kill her past self, who had survived the Kraken blast in The Time Paradox. Her past self's death creates a paradox , causing Opal's creations from the past five years to violently explode. To prevent the destruction of Atlantis, Opal's prison, the Fairies place Opal in the containment chamber of a nuclear reactor. The blast destroys most Fairy technology, which Koboi labs had controlled or created, and human technology, since black market Koboi chips had been used in their development and construction. As explosions throughout the world blow out most vehicles, buildings, satellites, and cell phones, killing many people in the process, human communication systems shut down, and the human world falls into chaos.
Maybe twenty-six feet, every move she made was watched by dozens. I was going to call you, he argued. Ye were so well when I left for the afternoon. But should she trust anyone while a killer is on the loose. He wrote me a letter on his deathbed, nearly tripping over the coffee table!
