Book review- Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception (Book 4) Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer

Captain Holly Short is believed to be a murderer, Artemis and Butler (still mind-wiped) are in danger of being killed and Mulch Diggums is the only one capable of helping them all survive. Can that be right? Kind of, but Mulch would appreciate my synopsis. 

Another great book in the Artemis Fowl series. The book is a little bit darker and serious than the previous. There is a death and a lot more violence in this one but the drama is balanced with a lot of the usual humor and fun of the three books before it. 

I have noticed that the last three books are classified as Young Adult while the first's reading level is shown for Ages 9-12. The change is most evident in this one and in The Eternity Code. The story has gotten better with each book. As Artemis matures so do the stories.
