Publisher's Summary

After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis Fowl had his mind wiped of his memories of the world below ground. Any goodness he had grudgingly learned is now gone, and the young genius has reverted to his criminal lifestyle.

Artemis is in Berlin preparing to steal a famously well-guarded painting from a German bank. Little does he know that his every move is being watched by his cunning old rival, Opal Koboi. The evil pixie 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 is at the top of her list. In a brilliant move, Opal escapes by cloning herself and masquerading as a human in order to carry out her schemes. Her first act is to lure Captain Holly Short and Commander Root into a deadly trap. Her next step is to destroy Artemis by turning his own genius against him.

Once again, it's up to Artemis Fowl to stop the human and fairy worlds from colliding. Only this time, Artemis faces an enemy who may have finally outsmarted him.

Listen to the entire Artemis Fowl series.

    Story
    "a very underwhelming third act."

    I find that this series has struggles with endings. this book in particular had a particularly underwhelming one. and the usual good performance was pulled down by the choice to give two particular characters a sort of raspy lisp tone. overall a strong story to start but loses momentum at the end

    Story
    "Artemis Fowl continues to entertain"

    When a friend of mine told me to give the artemis fowl series a try, I was skeptical to say the least. I had finished the Harry Potter series, and really that's a tough act to follow.

    This book does a great job though. Great audiobook narration by the person reading, very unusual but fun characters, and rather unpredictable study twists to the plot make these books so hard to stop listening to.

    I am a fictional reader. I like strong female characters that's don't require a romance story line.

    "Great book! Well read!"

    I love the Artemis fowl books and Audible lets me enjoy the series while also doing chores! It makes boring jobs interesting. The Opal Deception is a great, beautiful book, possibly the best so far in the series. Nathaniel Parker is extremely talented and his voices for each of the characters are superb. This book is a must-listen!

    "once again another home run"

    Another teen book that gripped me from start to finish. I have aged along with the characters well I'm a bit older but I stay with the story and emotion. Nathanal makes you feel as so your are there you are a friend or enemy in the story. worth every cent and word
