4. Artemis fowl: The Opal Deception

This 4th installment features Opal, who faked being in a come not only to avoid arrest, but also to have time to plot her revenge on those who got her arrested. when the time comes, she escapes and leaves a clone behind in her place.

The crazy bitch goes on to cruelly kill Commander Julius and frame Holly for the murder. She then screws up LEP weaponry and as planned, places the on Foaly the centaur, whom she's trapped locked up in his tech room. Holly, now a fugitive, goes into exile up on earth and enlists Artemis' help. As it turns out, he too is on Opals short list.

Opal ventures on earth and mesmerizes a human scientist into believing she is his "beloved daughter whom he'd do anything for". The scientist just happens to be planning the deepest excavation in human history. Her plan is to get the humans to dig deep enough to uncover the fairy world, a act which will inevitably lead to war.

Opal captures Holly and Artemis and dumps them in an area full of Trolls. She goes on to sadistically watch expecting the trolls to maul them to death. Much to her chagrin, they escape (by a hair, i might add) and plot a counterattack that eventually brings her down.

3. Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code

This one begins with Artemis meeting with an American Tycoon somewhere in Europe. He is planning to exhibit his new invention, the C cube, fashioned from remnants of fairy technology - which is at least 20 years ahead of humans'.

Surprisingly, the American double crosses him, takes the C cube and fatally shoots Butler. This wouldn't be a big deal except the C cube could potentially allow the humans to compromise the fairies underground AND put the two species at war. The fairies (obviously) have no qualms about helping Artemis recover it.

Butler is brought back to life. The cube is recovered and destroyed. and all is well..

2. Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident

Been a while since i wrote about the first AF book, figured i might as well write about the rest before the NEW ONE (book 6) COMES OUT ON TUESDAY!!!!!

Artemis' dad is apparently alive, captured somewhere in Russia by some mob/gang. Down at "fairyland", the goblins, aided by the pixie Opal Koboi, plan a take over of the LEPrecon. Artemis and Holly reach a mutual agreement to help each other. Artemis' dad is recovered (much thanks to Holly's magic), and the Goblin's plan to stage a coup at the police force is foiled by Artemis' genius mind. Opal Koboi is taken under arrested.
