Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception (Artemis Fowl #4)
A recruitment letter from the centaur Foaly, technical consultant, to the lower elements police.
If you have decoded this gnommish message, then you are a deputy officer in the lower elements police. You will not be aware of this fact because it is the custom of the LEP to mindwipe oour human allies. We do this so they cannot remember being recruited. If you cannot remember the fairy people or our underground city, then you can...more

The boy genius is back at it again. With two years of fairy memories erased from his mind, Artemis Fowl is back to his criminal mastermind self. This time he has his eyes set on a painting that sits in a very secure German bank vault. But this theft is only the first of many adventures that Artemis takes in the Opal Deception. With trolls, gunfire, and a plot to expose the fa...more
Actually, there isn't all that much of Artemis in this story, but that's okay, too, as the nemesis from The Arctic Incident, Opal Koboi, is after everyone who helped thwart her last series of dastardly deeds. Not only does Artemis need saving (and remindi...more
Here we are, all mind-wiped and uncertain, everything under and above ground going crazy all at once, but still the heroic group pulls together to fight yet another battle. And quite the group at that: 14-year-old Artemis, his behemoth bodyguard Butler, the dwarf-thief Mulch Diggums, and the ever-fiesty fairy, Holly Short.
I enjoyed Opal's escape scene and felt that it was suitably explained. Although it might seem like a slow beginning, I like the updated progress on Opal's condition. The fact she's been in a "coma" for about a year is amusing because in the second book she had seemed somewhat like an unstable character. In this, she see...more

Pixie Opal Koboi is a nasty bad guy in this fourth volume on the Artemis Fowl series. She's out for revenge and will stop at nothing to get it. Everyone seems destined for trouble, as Holly Short (Fairy cop) is about to lose her career, Artemis has no memory of The People, and one of the main characters is not going to make it through this book alive.
Although this book also included action and surprises (some good, some bad), I thought it went way overboard wi...more

The story talks about a pixie who trys to take over the world but couldn’t her name is opal koboi and the hero who is called Artemis fowl. It takes place in the lep building.

I love this book! I was really looking forward to read this book after The Eternity Code. I couldn’t help but wonder what will happen to Artemis as he had his mind wiped up of any memories of the fairies. I wonder how Artemis will remember the fairies. And I’m glad that I continued to read the saga. The Opal Deception is full of surprise! Eoin Colfer did a good job portraying the emotions of character. I really like how Eoin Colfer made Holly dealt with a...more
When his memory is wiped at the end of book three, I knew that couldn't be the end, and I was right. There is more to his adventure, and he has planned far ahead of the faeries to ensure that his memory loss won't be permanent. I must admit that it was fun seeing memory-wiped Artemis being dragged into faerie adventures, not knowing what's going on and having to go with the flow. Of course,...more
