Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception  - Eoin Colfer This was probably my favorite of the series so far. Starting off quickly with the death of a beloved character, the plot never lets up. Each chapter I was left wanting to read more and wondering how our heroes would make it out alive. And Artemis seems to be growing up, I am liking the changes in him and also how the author writes his growth- slow and steady.
