Review: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS.COM:

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.

MY TAKE:

I didn't like this as much as the other Artemis Fowl books but this book still had its high points.

If you've read the other Artemis Fowl books, then you might remember Opal Koboi, the pixie who helped finance the goblin rebellion. She was able to escape and now she's planning her revenge.

Opal is quite clever and she comes up with a brilliant, if evil, plan. Artemis' counter plan is even more brilliant, as expected. I especially enjoyed the ending, or at least what happened to Opal, as it was completely unexpected.

Mulch Diggums also takes center stage in this book, so if you're a Mulch Diggums fan, you will like this book.

Despite its strengths, I never really got into this story as much as the other books. Maybe it was Opal or maybe it was because of the story.

Thanks to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. More Artemis goodness.
  2. The ending is very interesting.
  3. You get to know the characters and their motivations better.

THE BAD:

  1. There are some slow parts.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Opal lurched into the cockpit. She had been tricked.
READ IT IF:

  1. You like Artemis Fowl.
  2. You like Mulch Diggums.
  3. You like clever children's books.
