^Go ahead, have a look around to see if there is one already and if not make it! I think I'll make one about the language differences coz that is a subject which intrigues me.

Slightly more on topic, I loved the way that we saw more of Foalys life in this book. I originally thought that the series might end with him alone or with him and holly together, but it makes me smile knowing that he had his beautiful awesome wife and a little herd of stallions to live his happily ever after with ^_^

@Dolly: The acronyms still work? COOL! :D

@Cabby: Foaly and Cabilline (not Cabby-caballine but Caballine-caballine obviously!) are really sweet :) And I love how they met (even if it goes against what they said earlier, but that was Foaly and we know he was embarrassed sooo...) :D I need to remember to put it on my list of OTPs...

This user will debate you about how important Jean Valjean is (acceptable answer: very), and the distinction between 'antagonist' and 'villain' and how the terms apply to Javert and the Thenardiers.

I'm not really fond of Caballine, she doesn't have that much personality, she's more like a centaurian version of Holly to get Foaly shipped to me... And about the moment she's attacked in their home by robots or I don't remember exactly what it was, I read the book only once, personally I though it was... dunno... a bit lazy from Colfer. It's like, Oh my god, Caballine is attacked by evil robots who wanna kill her !! Oh, but that's okay, she indeed masters a veeery powerful martial centaurian fight technique we never heard of in the books before :awesome: ... it's just a bit too much for me ^^'

^ I understand what you mean about how she can get out of it with such a kind of cheat. But in my head she like a proper martial arts expert. My headcanon is that they met at a speed dating that was actually organised by the LEP as like a charity night or something which is why he was made to go. And that she works for a sector of the LEP or with a group that leases out body guards in co-operation with the LEP for witness protection schemes and such.

^Didn't they meet when one of Foaly's new cameras accidentally recognised her as a criminal and he ended up having to make a personal apology? :)
Because Colfer doesn't do much worldbuilding until he really needs to (and also because I'm not good at noticing these things), I do find Caballine's ~**Magic Sparkle Faerie Skills**~ plausible... Like it does fit into the world he's made okay, and it's not the first time we've randomly been introduced to new stuff (to make a plot point, which is admittedly slightly lazy writing...)
To be honest, I'm slightly annoyed that the Good Ship HT was sunk :( It was my only non-canon surviving ship in the Fowl series! XD

The ending was extremley dissapointing. Where is the 9th book? It is almost as if Eoin Colfer is trying to decide to write another one. Plenty of room for explanation. It was a little bitter sweet, though. It was exciting, and then devestating. And the you get a spark of hope...
