9780141339139: Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception

Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception is the fourth phenomenal book in the legendary Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer.

Arch-Criminal Artemis Fowl's mind has been wiped. Now someone wants him dead.

Artemis Fowl is the only boy ever to have discovered an armed and dangerous fairy race living below ground. He just can't remember any of it.

But Artemis needs his memory back - and fast - because a power-crazed pixie is out for revenge, secretly scheming to overthrow the Lower Elements Police. If only Artemis's one fairy ally, Captain Holly Short, wasn't on the run. Everyone is depending on him.

And with Holly gone, Artemis is depending on a flatulent dwarf. Things are about to explode . . .

'Hugely satisfying - not to be missed' - Irish Independent

'Engagingly vivid, exciting and witty' - The Telegraph

'Fast, funny and very exciting' - Daily Mail

***Artemis Fowl was winner of the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award and Children's Book of the Year at the Children's Book Awards. Shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year Award.***

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the south-east of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. ARTEMIS FOWL, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards.

Review:

This fourth outing for Eoin Colferís teenage criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl, is--as ever--full of dramatic action, explosions, treachery, high speed chases, windy escapes from Trolls and a generous helping of fairy magic. There are plenty of laughs amidst the action and more new technical gizmos than you could fit into James Bondís latest car. At the end of Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code, Artemis was left with his memory erased of all previous dealings with the fairy folk, any underground realms he may have visited, a certain LEPrecon police officer called Holly Short he may have been acquainted with--even the flatulent, burrowing, kleptomaniac dwarf, Mulch Diggums. Everything. It was part of the deal he struck when he helped save the fairies and they aided his rescue of Fowl Snr. from captivity. But, having been accused of a heinous crime, Holly now needs Fowlís expertise once more to clear her name and save Fairykind from oblivion.

Opal Koboi, the most dangerous pixie who ever lived, has eluded capture and is out for revenge. Sheís framed Holly and tried to kill Artemis and his trusty bodyguard Butler. Holly must try to bring Artemis up to speed quickly in order to foil Opalís dastardly plan to expose the fairies down below to the humans on top.

Like J K Rowling, Colfer has complete mastery over the cast of characters he has created in this popular series of novels. Half of the pleasure of the Harry Potter novels is to be had by simply enjoying how the familiar characters interact--savouring their established foibles and characteristics and revelling in all the new things they get up to. In The Opal Deception, Colfer pairs up his heroes and villains brilliantly and has the same amount of tremendous fun with them. Itís witty and enjoyable and will be appreciated by all. (Age 9 and over) --John McLay
