Agreed. It's like it was predetermined ages ago... maybe Colfer had a brain fart... XD

It should be a QUEST, to get to the gate... it's kinda weird to just spring an entire new plot onto us... I dunno. I smell another book.

For me, its just kinda gonna be weird, cuz the way he describes it, it sounds like old magic, like from fairy tales, or even farther back, etc. But the magic and stuff in the other books is modern stuff, so its just kinda gonna be kinda strange. I dunno.

But anyways, maybe its not actually near the manor, just on a piece of land that Arty owns. :wink: But I do agree that if it were actually on the grounds of Fowl Manor, that would just be too easy.

Oh...man..

As soon as I read the part about souls and possessing, I thought : "That guy has overplayed his hand". It seems to...fantasy-like for the Artemis Fowl series. I seriosly hope that the Gate thingy isn't the main thing about the series, or at least, it's just in context.
ok.

yeah, the plot does sound a bit fantasy like, which in my opinion isn't good for a AF plot

Being the last book in the series, I have a gut feeling ONE character will die, to say the least.

Haha! "Artemis and his g- his... his friend, Captain Holly Short'... XD I can't wait to read the book.... And find Artemis and Holly together. <3

Does anyone else thinks Eoin kinda looks like Robert Downey Jr. with his facial hair...?

Thank you Fowlie!

Well, when all the normal people find out how cool it is to be different, they'll want to be different too. So if everyone is different, then different people will be normal, and the normal people will be different.

Facial hair WTH Colfer? XD

But yes this seems more fantastical then the previous books, it could be terible or epic, only time will tell.

'sigh' I am so excited (and sad) about this book.

Oh, and there is a description on Amazon about it. Nothing much different then the video, still... here is the link http://www.amazon.com/Artemis-Fowl-Guar ... 1423161610

I'm very worried about that...Butler is on the top of my worry list, though Colfer could surprise us.

My Mom had a interesting theory today...

In addition to the plot for the 8th book, Artemis helps Holly find a way to make the fairy world permeation hidden from humans. Make them two separate worlds. Of course this will mean Artemis giving up the fairies....

Eoin Colfer said in a interview that "Artemis has to grow up like Peter Pan" which made NO sense because Peter Pan didn't grow up, unless Eoin Colfer meant that it's like the books, not like Peter Pan himself. More like Wendy ,really. :lol:

^Omg... :shock: I would never think of the first part that you said. If they both are turned into seperate worlds, that would so kill me.

But then Eoin could leave us at another cliff handger, then make a 9th book as well. Like while the faires are going through another time tunner and they would get stuck right at the end of it. That would be a mega cliff hanger....

Maybe we should have a cliff hanger, then we could write even more or RP more about it. Now that would be awesome. :awesome: Besides just having the whole series end and that it, leaving us just to really hang out here.


To Eoin:

No killy my Butty!!! You no kill him!!! Kill Arty or Holly, just not him!!! (Butler.)

Alright, so sitting on the edge of my chair itching for the next book; The Last Guardian, little infomation has been let up, but this will (very sadly) be the end of our crimianl masterminds adventures.

Thoughts?

Hmmmm... the title, I have no idea who the last guardian will be. All I can think of is to make a connection to the other titles. Remember how literal they are. TOD was literally Opal deceiving people, TAI was literally an incident in the arctic, TLC was the demons being a lost colony, ect..

As for ships, Artemis will either end up with Holly or no one. Minerva was mentioned in ONE BOOK, and Trouble and Holly have barely had one conversation. I know you guys are all about the age difference, but when Holly and Artemis are hanging out, Artemis' superiority sort of balances it out. And hey, it wouldn't be the first cross species relationship. Read book 7.
