The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Once again Eoin Colfer has created an adventure that engages from start to finish! The story resumes with Opal Koboi safely imprisoned in a coma and Artemis and Butler's memories of The People wiped. As always, though, things are not what they seem. Opal escapes, Holly is in the worst trouble of her career and she needs the help that only Artemis and Butler can provide.
Colfer has created a wonderful villan in Opal. Both brilliant and irrational she is hilarious when she commands her henchmen not to look directly at her since it is "bad for the skin." With no Juliet in this book, it is good to have the humor that Opal's increasing insanity provides.
This is a great book for upper elementary boys and especially good in audio.
