Seemingly nothing in this world daunts the young criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl. In the fairy world, however, there is a small thing that has gotten under his skin on more than one occasion: Opal Koboi. In The Last Guardian, the evil pixie is wreaking havoc yet again. This time his arch rival has reanimated dead fairy warriors who were buried in the grounds of Fowl Manor. Their spirits have possessed Artemis's little brothers, making his siblings even more annoying than usual. The warriors don't seem to realize that the battle they were fighting when they died is long over. Artemis has until sunrise to get the spirits to vacate his brothers and go back into the earth where they belong. Can he count on a certain LEPrecon fairy to join him in what could well be his last stand?

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. Review

Amazon Exclusive: Artemis Fowl's Favorite Books

Artemis Fowl
Artemis Fowl
Even teenage masterminds have some downtime to read. Here Artemis Fowl shares some of his favorite books and what he likes about them.
  • Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  • Tom Sawyer is generally credited with being the brains of this juvenile outfit, but he was a mere buffoon compared to Huck. Tom with his fence painting con thought small while Huckleberry could see the big picture.

  • The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller
  • Nice Gothic artwork and Miller's Batman shows us that sometimes you have to be bad to be good. A nice motto to live by.

  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  • Adams puts forward some interesting hypotheses and sometimes his predictions have actually come to pass. And even when his ideas have been proven wrong they were mildly amusing to read.

  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  • A classic tome, nicely written apart from Dickens' characteristic overuse of adjective and adverb. All very realistic until the last chapter when Sydney Carton sacrifices himself for another. Highly unlikely given the man's character. To give one's life for another when both bodies contain roughly the same amount of energy? I fail to see the point.

  • Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
  • Of course this book should be entitled The Adventures of Captain Hook. What a character? The perfect villain. Sadly Barrie bowed to conventional storytelling by allowing the Pan character to vanquish James Hook, but in real life I'll wager that the Captain would prevail.
