Book Review: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer

The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication date: April 2005
Pages: 352
Source: Library
For: Fun
Series: Artemis Fowl, Book 4
Summary from goodreads:
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.
Things I Liked:
I really like the world Colfer has created.  The hilarious tongue-in-cheek and yet taking-themselves-seriously characters and just the whole idea of an underground world of fairies is so fantastic! And Mulch Diggums!  This is fabulous, witty, fun fantasy at its best.  I love the wicked plotter Opal and I love how Artemis is still an evil mastermind, but might be growing a conscience.

Things I Didn't Like:
Hm, not sure.  I just enjoyed the ride.

It's a bit of a young, silly Harry Potter read to me

s-factor: none

mrg-factor: none

v-factor: none

Overall rating: ****

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I only got through the first one in this series. I liked it ok but I'm not sure I'll ever get to the rest.

    1. I tend to go back to them after a nice long break. It's not hard to pick back up again. But, yeah, sometimes one is enough :)


Love it when you comment!
