The evil pixie Opal Koboi 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 Fowl is at the top of her list.
After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis had his mind wiped of his memories of the world belowground. But they have not forgotten about him. Once again, he must stop the human and fairy worlds from colliding - only this time, Artemis faces an enemy who may have finally outsmarted him.

About the Author

Eoin Colfer is the New York Times best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, Airman, Half Moon Investigations, The Supernaturalist, Eoin Colfer's Legend of... books, The Wish List, Benny and Omar; and Benny and Babe. He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.


Gr 5-7-Artemis Fowl has returned to his fiendish ways in the fourth book (Miramax, 2005) in Eoin Colfer's series about the 14-year-old criminal mastermind. Although his mind was cleared of any memories of the fairy world in the third book, it's not long before Artemis encounters many of his old cohorts. His archenemy, Opal Koboi, is no longer an imprisoned coma patient; she escaped by cloning herself and now has plans for the destruction of the Lower Elements and for world domination. Artemis needs the help of all his allies in this world and in the fairy world to stop the powerful and dangerous Opal. Nathanial Parker's superior talent for narration is wonderfully showcased in this rollicking tale of identity theft, intrigue, and adventure. He uses many different British accents and dialects to make both the human and the supernatural characters come alive, and his pacing is faultless throughout the dialogue and the narrative. Fans of the series will be delighted to join Artemis and his associates for another fantastic tale of the underworld, complete with gaseous dwarves and extraordinary technology. A great choice for fantasy lovers in school and public libraries.-Casey Rondini, Hartford Public Library, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

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. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

The Opal Deception- #4 in the series. Deep below ground in Haven, Foalys arch enemy Opal Keboi is back; and this time without her sanity. Bigger and badder than ever, Keboi plans the ultimate revenge. She wants to expose haven to the Mud Men; and destroy the faerie sanctuary forever. Secreted above ground, Opal seems unstoppable. And the only human capable of thwarting her plans- Artemis Fowl- was mindwashed several months ago.....
