Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl is back...and so is his cunning enemy, Opal Kobol. At the start of the fourth adventure, Artemis has returned to his unlawful ways. He's in Berlin, perparing to steal a famous impressionist painting from a German bank. He has no idea that his old rival, Opal, has escaped from prison by cloning herself. She's left her double behind in jail and, now free, is exacting her revenge on all those who put her there, including Artemis.

Meanwhile in the lower elements, Opal has planted a trap for Captain Holly Short and Commander Root of the LEPrecon fairy police--Root is killed, and Holly is framed for the murder. Instead of staying around to defend herseld, Holly rushes to the surface to warn Artemis. But before Holly and Artemis can get away, Opal arrives and abducts them both. Artemis is faced with a world he does not believe in and an enemy with an infernal plan to destroy this world forever. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salma Feteha | 1/15/2014

    " One of the best books I've ever read! This book is made to be a masterpiece. In my opinion, it's the best Artemis Fowl book... Congrats Eoin Colfer, you did it again :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 1/11/2014

    " I thought that this book would be a disappointment as in series there is usually one 'dodgy' book. I was blown away by this to my suprise. The characters are so well written and fromed that I can practically hear them and the plot thickens and gets better and better. I love Artemis and think he's a sweet boy underneath all the bravado. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/11/2014

    " Out to foil the nefarious plot of fairy criminal, Opal Koboi, Artemis, despite the mind wipe, teams up again with Holly Short to save the Lower Elements. Fast paced, suspenseful and fun, these Artemis books are a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 brian tanabe | 1/10/2014

    " Huge thumbs up to the entire young adult series. The characters are very well done and the plots provide non-stop action. Book 1 offers an exciting introduction. Book 3 is also quite a standout (Butler's sister added some nice interest). "

    " The book was Excellent!It gave me a clear sense of what Artemis was going through and what he was thinking.Since I finished the fourth book in the Artemis Fowl series,I'm starting see that Artemis is never left alone.He will go through near death experiences,kidnappings,and his protector,Butler.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 2/27/2013

    " Another winner. Colfer keeps the series going by bringing us back to the beginning in a way that works. Opal Deception is a not as light as its predecessors, but that's okay. I was ready for a little bit more drama. On to the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tinae Goodell | 2/14/2013

    " great story line "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie k | 7/31/2011

    " This book isn't the best in the series, but if you want to know what's happening and feel more joy for something in the last book, you'd better read this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mckinley | 7/26/2011

    " The story was ok, but the man who read the series is fantastic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jelimo | 5/20/2011

    " it was awesome i loved every little evil twist and the beginning was so sad i cried right in the middle of class because of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 5/6/2011

    " A great read. Suspenseful and funny. I think I need to read more of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darien | 4/24/2011

    " it was pretty good. You think you figured it out but the book proves you wrong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 4/11/2011

    " This one was good. Creative. One could get turned off by the name of the new creatures. They are called Demons. Once i got past the fact that they are nothing like real Demons it was really creative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zakary | 4/8/2011

    " Eoin Cofler did it perfectly. Again.

    In this book, Artemis meets Opal and has a memory device go off in his head about his past with Holly. Which wants you to read more. In the end, evil Opal gets trapped.

    What does she do next? Guess I wil have to find out in book six. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Proud | 4/3/2011

    " i love these books. i really do ;D. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Buhle | 3/31/2011

    " One finds it hard to imagine what goes on in Eoin's head. But one thing is for sure, this man is a literary genius. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 3/30/2011

    " I'm glad Opal has to suffer. She deserves it. I'm glad Artemis remembers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devina | 3/20/2011

    " Finished this one in a few hours. Loved it. Colfer has written a fast-paced, funny, yet emotional book. It's a mystery sometimes why YA readers don't appreciate Colfer's work as much as they do Rowling or even the over-rated Stephanie Meyer. His writing is superb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 3/19/2011

    " On literary merit alone, this is an excellent series of children's books that - in my opinion - far exceeds Harry Potter (now the genre standard) in originality and plot coherence. "
