The end of TEC was perfect. Completely unexpected, completely different. Completely cool. It was the perfect place to end. Artemis went so far, changed so much. And in twenty minutes, he's evil again.
A huge twist. Not "everything ends happily ever after." No "good guy saves the day."
And then he wrote TOD. He blew the mind-wipe by making Artemis good again. In TLC, Artemis is good again.
This completely ruins the original point
of the series. The point was to write about a criminal as a main character. The main character is the bad guy. The good guys lose.
Now it's back to the good guys win, and Artemis is the good guy.
