This fourth outing for Eoin Colfer’s teenage criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl, is--as ever--full of dramatic action, explosions, treachery, high speed chases, windy escapes from Trolls and a generous helping of fairy magic. There are plenty of laughs amidst the action and more new technical gizmos than you could fit into James Bond’s latest car. At the end of Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code, Artemis was left with his memory erased of all previous dealings with the fairy folk, any underground realms he may have visited, a certain LEPrecon police officer called Holly Short he may have been acquainted with--even the flatulent, burrowing, kleptomaniac dwarf, Mulch Diggums. Everything. It was part of the deal he struck when he helped save the fairies and they aided his rescue of Fowl Snr. from captivity. But, having been accused of a heinous crime, Holly now needs Fowl’s expertise once more to clear her name and save Fairykind from oblivion.

Opal Koboi, the most dangerous pixie who ever lived, has eluded capture and is out for revenge. She’s framed Holly and tried to kill Artemis and his trusty bodyguard Butler. Holly must try to bring Artemis up to speed quickly in order to foil Opal’s dastardly plan to expose the fairies down below to the humans on top.

Like J K Rowling, Colfer has complete mastery over the cast of characters he has created in this popular series of novels. Half of the pleasure of the Harry Potter novels is to be had by simply enjoying how the familiar characters interact--savouring their established foibles and characteristics and revelling in all the new things they get up to. In The Opal Deception, Colfer pairs up his heroes and villains brilliantly and has the same amount of tremendous fun with them. It’s witty and enjoyable and will be appreciated by all. (Age 9 and over) --John McLay

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7–Artemis Fowl has returned to his fiendish ways in the fourth book (Miramax, 2005) in Eoin Colfer's series about the 14-year-old criminal mastermind. Although his mind was cleared of any memories of the fairy world in the third book, it's not long before Artemis encounters many of his old cohorts. His archenemy, Opal Koboi, is no longer an imprisoned coma patient; she escaped by cloning herself and now has plans for the destruction of the Lower Elements and for world domination. Artemis needs the help of all his allies in this world and in the fairy world to stop the powerful and dangerous Opal. Nathanial Parker's superior talent for narration is wonderfully showcased in this rollicking tale of identity theft, intrigue, and adventure. He uses many different British accents and dialects to make both the human and the supernatural characters come alive, and his pacing is faultless throughout the dialogue and the narrative. Fans of the series will be delighted to join Artemis and his associates for another fantastic tale of the underworld, complete with gaseous dwarves and extraordinary technology. A great choice for fantasy lovers in school and public libraries.–Casey Rondini, Hartford Public Library, CT

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best of the series? But more still to come! 23 avril 2005
Par bensmomma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If it were not for the occasional appearance of Mulch Diggums, the dwarf with f*rts so explosive they can propel him safely from an underwater submarine all the way up to the surface of the ocean, the adult reader would find this the equal of any thriller written for adult eyes.

In the present volume, the evil child genius Artemis Fowl has forgotten all about his friends the fairies, and is occupied stealing a famous painting from a bank vault in true Mission-Impossible style. His triumph is interrupted by his archenemy pixie Opal Koboi, who has a plot (perhaps this won't surprise you) to destroy the world. Without giving away any of the rapid-fire plot developments, let's just say that Artemis, accompanied by Holly Short the intrepid LEPrechaun, Foaly the tech-wizard centaur, Artemis' bodyguard Butler, and the strangely compelling Mulch, fouls her plans (ok, sorry).

The intriguing list of gadgets and devices author Eoin Colfer employs to move the plot forward includes: cloning, creatures who shed their entire skin and use it later as a disguise in a prison break, retinal imaging, 100 million tons of molten iron, heat-seeking missiles, spacesuits with helmets that carry biometric information back to the center of the earth, handguns that bond with their owners, etc.

The ending promises a change for Holly, but a future with lots of Mulch and Artemis in it - and possibly some romance in later volumes.

The excitement, pace, and humor would be precisely like the best PG-13 thriller you will see at the movie theatre this summer, were it not for the fact that many of the characters are fairies, pixies, trolls, and dwarfs. And just like those movies, a few parents will wish there were less, well, military hardware in this series. A few of the more humorless moms will wish there were fewer f*rts. If those things don't bother you, you should not let the kids keep it to themselves; it's a great fun read for all ages.

There's a sinister plot afoot to expose the fairy world, but who could be behind it? Surely not the most dangerous pixie criminal of all time? Opal Koboi has been in a coma for almost a year, and is in a secure mental institution under constant guard, yet as the title reveals, Opal has quite an arsenal up her virtual sleeve, and a hit list for revenge.

Systematically and coldly carrying out her calculated plan, Opal leads her arch enemies at the LEPrecon police into a trap, and only instincts and pure dumb luck can save Captain Holly Short this time.

Artemis has had his brain wiped after his last fairy encounter, and has returned to a life of crime, but with niggling undercurrents of niceness that even he can't explain. Suddenly, just as he succeeds in stealing a valuable painting, his world gets ripped from under him, as the fairy world collides unceremoniously with his own.

Lots of action in this one, weapons, trolls, gadgets, magic and Mulch, and Artemis needs all his cunning and the retrieval of his memories if he wants to survive. It's his most physically demanding role yet, but he has to be at his strongest to match minds with Opal.

You should really read books one to three before attempting this one, but you won't regret it for a second.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 D'Arvit! Awesome! 31 mars 2005
Par Anne-Marie G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I just finished reading this fabulous book, completely unexpectedly, as I had no idea a new one was on the way. Very pleasant surprise to say the least. As usual the characters in this are fantastic!! We don't get as much from some of my favorites, like Foaly and Butler as we have in previous books, but they are still very strong presences. Colfer does a great job of telling one moment in time from various view points so the reader is always in the know (as much as anyone can be in regards to a criminal mastermind like Artemis Fowl, that is)

(Spoiler warning)

It does sadly have a character death, though it was handled very well. Artemis' thoughts and insights are great, and he and Holly share their special chemistry even with him not having his memories for most of the book. The last little blip in the book, an 'article' seems to promise alot more from my favorite 'reformed' child-mastermind, and the next book will be taking the characters in very different directions, it seems, than they have been traveling in the previous books. Not just the reformed Artemis, but Holly as well--and in some degree together.

Awesome read!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead! 11 avril 2005
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is so good, I do not know how to begin. First of all I would like to mention that a major character dies, and I am still in shock, but I will not tell you which major character it is. So if you do not like sad books, just don't read this.

True to its name this book is about Opal Koboi's revenge on everyone who destroyed the B'wa Kell Uprising for her in the second book. This pretty much includes Artemis, Holly, Butler, Foaly, Commander Root, and Mulch.

This begins when Holly and Commander Root are investigating a case about some irritating goblin that fooled Foaly's sensors. When they do this, a major character gets killed by Opal Koboi, and Holly is framed. It is shocking and sad, but Eoin Colfer handles it very well. By now you've probably guessed who the major character is, and that is my main big spoiler.

Meanwhile Artemis Fowl is attemping to steal a famous painting, Opal springs a trap, and Holly runs up to the surface to save him. However Artemis has no memory of the People.

Then Mulch gets involved, and things become really chaotic, although the chaos really didn't have much to do with Mulch.

If you would like to find out how this great book ends, then I advise you to read it. And the ending is very suprising.

If you have read the other Artemis fowl books, then I do not need to tell you how good this book is. You already know what the other Artemis Fowl books are like. If you haven't read the Artemis Fowl books, the I think you should start by reading the first one. It will make much more sense.

Par Rebeca Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com

This fourth book of the Artemis Fowl Series was outstanding. Artemis, having recently being mind-wiped, returns to his life of crime. But his most feared enemy, Opal Koboi, is after revenge on the people that foiled her early plan. This includes Holly Short, Julius Root, Artemis Fowl, Butler, and of course Foaly. Artemis does not think he is in any danger because he doesn't remember Opal after the mind-wipe. When Holly and Root are up against Opal, they finally meet their match. After an unfortunate event, Holly seeks out Artemis and Butler to try and save them from the bio-bomb but to do thatshe must introduce herself to them all over again. Now they are all on a quast to find Koboi so they can stop her. But will her evil plan actually work this time. She spent a year in a coma(as we would call it) plotting her revenge on Artemis and Holly. Holly, Artemis, Butler, and Mulch(the dwarf) have to foil Koboi's plan without any help. Holly is suspected of murder and cannot seek Foaly's help. Will Koboi's evil plan to expose human's to fairies work, or will Artemis come up with yet another brilliant idea. Find out in this excellent book.

Pixies made wonderful employees. They were methodical, patient and determined. When a pixie was instructed to do something, you could rest assured that thing would be done. Plus they were cute, with their baby faces and disproportionately large heads. &quote;

This outfit is preposterous, he said, zipping his tracksuit top. What is the point of a hood that is not waterproof? And all these logos? I feel like a walking advertisement. And these jeans do not fit properly. They are sagging down to my knees. &quote;
