Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis Fowl had his mind wiped of his memories of the world belowground. Any goodness he had grudgingly learned is now gone, and the young genius has reverted to his criminal lifestyle.

Artemis is in Munich preparing to steal a famously well-guarded painting from a German bank. Little does he know that his every move is being watched by his old rival, Opal Koboi. The evil pixie has spent the last year in a self-induced coma, plotting her revenge on all those who foiled her attempt to destroy the LEPrecon fairy police. And Artemis is at the top of her list.

Once again, it's up to Artemis Fowl to stop the human and fairy worlds from colliding — only this time, Artemis faces an enemy who may have finally outsmarted him...

Review:

"Popular series continue to take readers far and wide with some favorite escorts. In the fourth adventure about the teen criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer, fans can cheer that the antihero did not retire, as he had threatened in The Eternity Code. However, his career is now in peril because all memory of the fairy people (even the wicked Opal Koboi) has been erased from memory; and Opal has framed Capt. Holly Short for the murder of Commander Root of the LEPrechon fairy police." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"This book is magical." The Washington Post

Review:

"As in all the books, this one has plenty of action as well as great humor and clever plot manipulations. Characters are once again fully realized, and fans will eagerly enter into the spirit of the action." Booklist

Review:

"The plot is excellent and moves the reader rapidly through deadly traps....The characters are well developed and believable. The author is very adept at weaving humor throughout the story and readers will be hard pressed to put the book down once they have started to read it." Children's Literature

Review:

"The prose is clunky and the characters speak in clichés, but those who enjoyed the earlier books won't care. The humor (heavily dosed with flatulence jokes) and creativity carry the narrative through the tight spots and impossible situations." School Library Journal

Review:

"The characters — especially sarcastic Artemis, now 14 — are still a blast, but Colfer seems too dazzled by all the gadgetry and explosives jammed into this tale. (Grade: C+)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"[A] must-have for public and school libraries where the series is popular as well as where action adventure and fantasy books are all the rage. A most enjoyable, almost perfect novel..." VOYA

Synopsis:

Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl is back — and so is his brilliant and dangerous enemy, Opal Koboi — in the highly anticipated new addition to the #1 bestselling Artemis Fowl series.
