ARTEMIS FOWL: THE OPAL DECEPTION (Fantasy) – VG
Eoin – 4th in series
Miramax Books, 2005, Hardcover
Artemis had his mind wiped of his memory of the fairie world and has returned to his criminal ways. He and his man Butler are in Berlin to steal a famous oft-stolen painting so that Artemis can be the youngest person to ever have stolen it. Meanwhile, Opal Koboi, that evil pixie who has been in a self-induced coma, has foiled authorities and is out for revenge on enemies, particularly Artemis.
What a delightful book! Whenever I need a break from mystery, I go to fantasy and this is a series I love. The gang is back; Holly Short, Foaly the centaur, and Mulch Duggums. The writing is clever as is the story, and I loved the ending. It doesn't matter whether you're 7 or 70, if you enjoy fantasy, you'll enjoy Artemis; but do start with the first book. Fun reading!
