We have so many posts now with spoiler warnings at the top, that this needs its own thread. Seems loads of people have read it now :D



So what did yous think of it??? Favourite part of the book???



I loved it, and I just cant pick a favourite part. I loved the demon world, I loved breaking into Minerva's and I loved the total shock ending XD

I think it was kinda rushed so it wasnt as well written as some of the others. I really like Minerva, she is hilarious except she thinks Holly is a demon. Which is really stupid because clearly Holly is a elf! DUH!

Hey, Mulch, if you listen really hard you can just about make out the sound of nobody giving a hoot.

Do you think theyll get along?

I mean, they never really met properly in The Lost Colony, but maybe in the next book, theyll get to know each other better? ^_^

Do you think Minerva will come back or will she be like Opal and pop in and out and eventually go away forever!? I think Juliet would be better friends with Minerva. But Holly and Minerva could get together and bug Artemis to death!

I think she will come back. I mean, she waited around on Artemis for the years while he was away. You dont just do that if you plan on abandoning the person ^_^

I guess. Do you think Opal will come back in the 6th book? I mean she is always doing something evil in the even books. Seriously, these books need some evilness! Im begining to think Barney is more cruel!

I think it would be really funny if holly and minerva just hated eachother. besides, you can't expect holly to be able to put up with two child genii.

Oh yeah, haven't given my review...

Great. Up there with The Eternity Code. I loved that holly died, because it added some realism to the book, but i also think it was brilliant that Artemis saved her, because i obviously don't want holly permanently dead. I wanted more of foaly, though. Mulch was Mulch, and we all love that. I'm just worried about Butler...

I'm kind of worried about Butler too...but I'm also curious...I wonder what he would look like with loads of silver hair...I've certainly got my own picture in my head and it looks cool, yet weird at the same time...

Is it me, or did that last sentence not make any sense XD

To me he looks like Hagrid, except his hair's silver.

I feel that the book could have been better if they went back in time BEFORE opal deception so they can save ROOT from dying.

The last part of the book says that artemis is a big brother. He has a younger brother!!! :o

I feel that in the next book they should fill us in with what happened in the 3 years.

And Minerva and artemis will have a relationship. :wub:
Maybe Holly will be jealous... :focl:
It's this blasted puberty, Butler. Every time I see a pretty girl, I waste valuable mind space thinking about her. <br>-Lost Colony pg 6
