One Minute Opal Deception
Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception is a teen fantasy novel published as the fourth book in the Artemis Fowl series by the Irish author Eoin Colfer. It is centered on the brilliant pixie Opal Koboi's second try at rebellion and Artemis Fowl II and his fairy comrades' efforts to stop her. Critical reception was mixed, with some reviews praising the book but others pointing out confusion and poor writing. Artemis Fowl is not seen in the book as much as Opal Koboi.
