Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian

 Summary: It's Armageddon Time for Artemis Fowl
 Opal Koboi, power-crazed pixie, is plotting to exterminate mankind and become fairy queen.
 If she succeeds, the spirits of long-dead fairy warriors will rise from the earth, inhabit the nearest available bodies and wreak mass destruction. But what happens if those nearest bodies include crows, or deer, or badgers - or two curious little boys by the names of Myles and Beckett Fowl?
 Yes, it's true. Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl's four-year-old brothers could be involved in destroying the human race. Can Artemis and Captain Holly Short of the Lower Elements Police stop Opal and prevent the end of the world?

Thoughts: I don't even know where to start with this one. Everything grinds to a halt in this last, action packed book of this fantastic series. Everything that's been building up and that each story has been working towards explodes in this final book and it was...amazing. I admit to knowing a few spoilers to the end prior to reading but that didn't for an instant  mean that I was in any way prepared for that climax. And the end? I mean the very end. It was heartbreaking and perfect and I wouldn't change a bit of it.
 The characters reach full potential and development goes through the roof.
 The plot never pauses or slows down. This book is easiest read in a straight binge for an hour or two because otherwise you wont know how to think properly with everything happening between the pages. You need to know what's coming next.
 The writing was everything I've come to love from Eoin Colfer plus some. Did I mention this book was heartbreaking?

Content: Language and crude humor a little above the level of the previous books (check out Artemis Fowl for more detail). A lot of violence (and death). Otherwise clean and just so good. I'm sorry to see another great series end. Please read these books!
