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.

    "Highly Entertaining !!"

    After finishing the Harry Potter audiobook series (with the fantastic narration by Jim Dale), I was hoping to find anything as similarly engaging. While this series is not as deep or complex, its certainly fun, exciting and highly entertaining. The narration by Nathaniel Parker is outstanding. I was hooked into Mr. Colfer’s world and felt a pang when the 5th audiobook ended. However, unlike the HP series, there is more still more Artemis Fowl to come, and I greatly look forward to the forthcoming 6th installment!

    "Weak"

    Compared to the series so far, this is a weak addition. Second weakest book in the series. The weakest is yet to come.

    "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

    "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.
