Evil pixie, Opal Koboi, is back and she's more dangerous than ever. This time she doesn't just want power over the fairy People - this time she wants the humans too. Captain Holly Short is the only fairy with a hope of stopping her, but as Holly knows, it takes one genius criminal mastermind to fight another. But the 14-year-old genius that Holly is thinking of doesn't even remember that fairies exist. How is she going to convince Artemis Fowl to help her stop Opal? Gold usually does the trick, and this time is should be no different. Or is Artemis changing?

About the Author:

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the south-east of Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. ARTEMIS FOWL, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards.

From AudioFile:

The underground world of the fairies again confronts the evil genius of the nefarious pixie, Opal Koboi. Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police) needs the help of young mastermind Artemis Fowl to save both humans and fairies. But Artemis has been mind-wiped and has no recollection of his previous adventures with the LEP. Nathaniel Parker strides confidently into the worlds of fantasy and technology that unite humans and fairies. He unerringly re-creates the many voices from the first three installments, and his appropriately hurried pacing takes the listener from one breathless calamity to another. Parker's stereotyped Asian accent becomes a bit annoying, but this is a small complaint in an otherwise welcome revival of Colfer's panoply of characters.
