TroubleTwisters – Sean Williams & Garth Nix DUE MAY 2011
Both Australian authors, Sean and Garth team up to write a brand new series for tweens Two twins are thrust into a new world in this exciting series. After a force of nature destroys their home, Jack and Jaide are sent to live with their mysterious Grandma X. There they are forced to confront an evil they never imagined and learn things about themselves that will change their lives forever.
I really enjoyed this book, I think it is a great start to a new tale. Garth and Sean have done a wonderful job at merging their two writing talents to create a seamless story. From the start there is action, intrigue and humour. Both Jaide and Jack are well written and you genuinely feel for them. Grandma X and her son, the twins father Hector, are mysterious and the writers give you just enough information to make you want to find out more of the history behind the events happening.
One of my favourite characters was Aristotle – Ari the cat. I liked his spunk.
I think that this book will appeal to fans of Garth's – Keys to the Kingdom series and also Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series.
Very engaging and you really can't tell where one writer starts and the other leaves. I can't wait to read the next book.
