Find it on Goodreads
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 somehow 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—a battle against Artemis—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? (from Goodreads)
Ahhhhhhhh the last Artemis Fowl! I am such a huge fan of this series, I can't believe it's ending. What will I do without my favourite criminal mastermind? I have a feeling Artemis is going to put the conscience that's been building up to use in this one and work for the good of the fairies. So excited, can't wait to see what happens to Opal! And also to see what happens between Holly and Artemis...I know Eoin said they wouldn't end up together (and to be fair, this really isn't a series concentrated around romance, just action and humour and awesomeness), but am I the only one who thinks (read: hopes) that it's some clever ruse to throw us off? I have to admit, I ship Holly and Artemis. I don't care that she's almost half his height and a different species...:P.
