Throwback Thursday #23: The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer

Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by me and Christina @ Booksane where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.
Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl #8) by Eoin Colfer
 July 10, 2012 by Disney Hyperion

Seemingly nothing in this world daunts the young criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl. In the fairy world, however, there is a small thing that has gotten under his skin on more than one occasion: Opal Koboi. In The Last Guardian, the evil pixie is wreaking havoc yet again. This time his arch rival has somehow reanimated dead fairy warriors who were buried in the grounds of Fowl Manor. Their spirits have possessed Artemis’s little brothers, making his siblings even more annoying than usual. The warriors don’t seem to realize that the battle they were fighting when they died—a battle against Artemis—is long over. Artemis has until sunrise to get the spirits to vacate his brothers and go back into the earth where they belong. Can he count on a certain LEPrecon fairy to join him in what could well be his last stand?

This book killed me. I loved it but it killed me. It's the last Artemis Fowl book and I was just so sad when it ended. But it was really good, as always. I miss these characters so much!

“I want you to know, my dear friend, that without you, I would not be the person I am today." He leaned in close and whispered, "I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.”

Question of this week:

Who is your favorite female villain?

The first one coming to mind when I think about female villains is...
Opal Koboi from the Artemis Fowl series. She really is Artemis' ultimate enemy and also she's totally crazy.

Another one I have to think about is Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. She scares the crap out of me. 

Next Question (April 17):

Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
