Opal Koboi, the most dangerous pixie who ever lived, has eluded capture and is out for revenge. Shes 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 Opals 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. Its witty and enjoyable and will be appreciated by all. (Age 9 and over) --John McLay --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
This book is brilliant it has action, near misses, dwarfs, pixies, near deaths, deaths and a LEP retrieval squad.
All in all great book by a great author
Not as good as the first three books (I wonder if there was intent to end as a trilogy). It was still enjoyable, and sets up the series to move in a new direction. Read morePublished 11 months ago by BobP
