Opal Deception (Artemis Fowl)

The Opal Deception  - Eoin Colfer Artemis has decided to steal a painting, he can't remember any of his past dealings with faerie, but strangely enough, this paining has faeries. Meanwhile Holly is dealing with promotion, the only way she knows how and almsot pining for the days when Artemis made her life interesting. And then Opal Koboi breaks free with a cunning plan to destroy faerie lands and to gain a lot of power, Artemis will have to be reminded, and faerie is never going to be the same. I found it interesting but it did lag a bit in places, Artemis is becomming more of a rounded person in this story and there's a bit of introspection going on which is all good. I'm looking forward to the next installment.
