To be honest, (and I still haven’t read the last book so I could be wrong), I feel like it should have ended a few books back. I love the series, but it just burnt out.

....I can’t afford the book its self, how would I afford a kindle? See, I don’t have a job (because I’m under 16), and my family doesn’t have much money. I’m going to wait until I have enough money that buying it won’t make me feel guilty for the rest of forever. (I have one $20 bill left, and Christmas and my birthday are months away, and all of my family’s library cards are in debt because my family has issues with deadlines apparently -.-)
I don’t mean just cut it off a few books back, I mean write the last book a few books back. I love the recent books, but when compared to the first they’re just so different. They just feel tired.
But this is all off topic, the point is that I think Mr.Colfer knew when to end the series and I trust in his disicion.

yes, never doubt Mr.Colfer. why are we totally the opposite of each other? i didnt like the first book in comparasion to the 3rd and 4th and 5th and 6th. but 7th? yes. 8th? in between. the second was much better that the first too.

To be blatantly honest, I didn’t like TAC. I just thought that I could predict the storyline and i didn’t get some of the jokes. There was one about something with a T and I always got confused >.< Im going to reread it soon, before I read TLG. I hope that TLG is really good so that TAC is just my least favorite. If the last two are bad that would be really sad.. But Eoin is so amazing I doubt thats even possible.

It would be interesting if he wrote a brother series more from Holly’s point of view and her life before she joined the LEP and met Artemis. Yeah, that would be cool

It’s a great idea, but I’m not sure how interesting her life was before Arty. But if it can be done, then it should be.

yeah LMF has a point. and without artemis it wouldnt be as exciting. but he could write about the time her mom died. *poor holly!*. so yeah it might just work!

I agree with LMF, the books did start feeling tired, and so different than the first one. And af-fan, what’s the point of making more books if you yourself have said that you think the ideas have ran out?

A. I think there could be more stories, but I would want a plot without a central Villian, like maybe just a book with them trying to save the planet with Aremis’s PLAN .

I think the reason why they seem tired is because we Had the same villian for several books. I think like The lost colony which has a totally different theme was very refreshing.

So here is a Set of quotes from an interview with Mr. Colfer. He basically says artemis’s story is done.

“Eoin, you’re wrapping the Artemis Fowl series up in your latest book.  How did you feel saying goodbye to the characters you created over ten years ago?

Mr. Colfer- I was relieved to finally type ‘the end’ after 14 years of work, but now that I am out in the world talking about it, I am beginning to feel a little sad. I have had people actually crying with real tears. I don’t want to make kids cry, apart from my own obviously - just kidding. I don’t want to make any kids sad. But it is better that they are sad now than bored in a couple of years.

After creating such a detailed world, was it difficult making sure you tied all the loose ends up?
Mr. Colfer- It was difficult especially with my terrible memory. Luckily my brilliant editor, Sarah, kept an eye on my work to make sure everyone was accounted for. Also I left a couple of strands dangling in case I ever want to return to the fairy world. Not to Artemis though, his tale is told.

Here is the full interview
