My fav is TEC!!!
I don't know how to explain it, but it filled my expectations towards the whole series. I loved AF and TAI, but I wanted some more action aboveground. And it was simply GREAT!!! Artemis had the best personality there, so did Holly.
And the ending was the best, I couldn't stop crying! :cry: (I don't like all that stuff "and they lived happily ever after").

I agree that Artemis was awesome there XD

His little victory speech to Spiro in the very end was just perfect :D

The ending was a great cliff hanger, and i imagine it must have been pretty worring to AF fans. Will there be a 4th book? etc. XD


The thing i didnt really like was Juliet. She wasnt half of Butler :(

You know what? I think my fave was TEC aswell now you mention it :D I was a bit worried at the end cos Colfer said it was going to be a trilogy. I cried too :cry:
And i cried when Butler got shot. I love those bits, where you cry over something, then the story gets saved at the last minute and i hug my book *blush* at least im honest! Oh and when Arty says at the end " I am Artemis. Artemis the hunter, and I hunted you," that sent shivers down my spine :wub: and it still does after re-reading it about 3 times! And of course i screamed when i knew there was going to be a 4th book! :lol:

tbh tho, i cant really pick a 100% fave. I think my fave bits dotted throughout all the books are when Holly and Commander Root (ha Julius :P ) share those little sentimental moments. Ahhhhhhhh ^_^

Yea, now when I read what other people say about their favorite book I want to change my mind. But I guess ultimately I can?t pick a favorite.

Does that make sense?? :blink:

Just curious...I didn't think there was another topic like this because I looked in this forum a little and found nothing so yeah. What's your favorite book out of the entire AF series?

I'd have to say The Eternity Code is my favorite...I dunno. I just really think it was the best of all...it...jsut outdid the others. I mean, everybody was working together, everything was going awesomely! And it was just amazing. I loved it XDD

So yeah. POSTALREADY.

I pretty sure there was a thread like this b4 and I think I said that I couldnt chose 1 book and that I love em all.

Or something along the lines of that.

There was one, but meh, im not bothered :)


My fav is probably the first one, mainly due to Artemis being the ultimate enemy :D

It was so funny, so action packed and so enjoyable to read :)


I loved the others of course, but just not as much :(

Opal Deception probs had the best overall storyline :)

Oh I really couldn't decide between the four, I've just started reading them all again, because my brain is pathetic and if I don't keep wreading them over and over the storyline gets messed up, I must say I like the first, and The Eternity Code.
They really are brilliant books through out, I can never put them down once I pick them up!
