The last Artemis Fowl has come out (July 10th), and one of my favorite series has ended with a bang. I liked it better than the seventh one and the last fifty pages or so are great, but hands-down the first six are the best. One drawback about this 8th and final book: the villian in this one does deal with black magic, and though it's clear that it's evil, if you're not okay with this just stop at book seven, where black magic is just introduced at the end. This series as a whole is fun, fast-paced, humorous, and has great characters and character development. Artemis is a boy genius, and his plans are always clever and make for exciting reads. Add in gun-toting faries and high-tech gadgets, and you get books that are interesting and fun. Read more about it in Adventure/Fantasy or Sci-fi Ages 11+.
July 10th also ushered in the fourth and last book in the Dragons of Starlight series, Liberator. This is a Bryan Davis fantasy series for teens, and as always, it has great characters, Christian morals, and action. I've really enjoyed this series as well as the rest of Bryan Davis' books. If you want to check out the series, it's in both Christian and Adventure/Fantasy. Scroll down to Young Adult.
