Genre: Younger Reader, Fantasy, Adventure


Twin siblings Jack and Jaide discover they are pivotal to a secret supernatural organisation that protects the earth from marauding Evill. Portland might seem like a quiet coastal town, and their grandmother is perhaps no dottier than anyone else's, but it soon becomes apparent that the strange things going on around them are anything But ordinary. It's all very well discovering that you suddenly have magical powers, but when you don't know exactly what they are, or how to use them, then facing impending peril doesn't seem like a very good idea at all...

Thank you to Egmont for giving me this chance to read read the arc copy of this novel.

Troubletwister is a fun read about twins Jack and Jaide as they embarked on adventure that changes their lives. They are forced to go live with their Grandma after their house is detroyed and thats were the story really gets going. They two characters are just fantastic, they are very likeable. They are very quick on the mark that there is something about Grandma X and they are determind to find out what. Jaide is the more outgoing type always trying to get Jack to explore when they know they shouldn't. Jack, seems to be comes across as more of a think things through kind of boy and I think I prefered him to Jaide.

Grandma X I liked from the minute she appeared. I would like a Grandma like her. She has so much mystery around and its very intriguing and like Jaide and Jack you just need to find out more.

The story itself was a little slow at first and it wasn't until the twins when to live with Grandma X that I was hooked. The authors have created a story that even though its aimed at age 10+, I feel that young and old will enjoy this. Its funny, dark and The Evil, well thats is creepy. So many twists and turns I didn't see coming.

This is sure to be a huge hit amoung fans of fantasy adventures who like their story action packed from start to finish. I am really looking forward to the next installement and I will continuei to follow the adventures of Jack, Jaide and Grandma X.
