Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Troubletwisters series

"[An] enjoyable romp." — Publishers Weekly

"Full of adventure and the unexpected, the first book in Nix and Williams's new series is delightfully twisted. The pacing is perfect, the setting is eerily dark, the faceless Evil rings true, and the resolution is satisfying." —Booklist

"This gripping fantasy for the middle-grade set delivers magic and delightful dollops of ick." —Kirkus Reviews

Just a fun read for teens, adults just about everyone that enjoys fantasy books. As always, Garth Nix comes through
with his usual quirky style and interesting plots.

Though I must say, the first Troubletwisters was my favorite; this was a pretty good book. At some points, the plot got a little slow and it was hard to understand, but if you keep going its good. It's one of those books that you don't really enjoy until you have finished reading it.

Be aware. As of the date of this review there are two Kindle versions of this book listed, and they don't appear to be connected yet. This one is from Scholastic and costs $9.99. The other is from Egmont and costs $5.98. I don't know how this happened, but just fyi. I posted the following review on both sites:

I like Garth Nix's work. The "Keys to the Kingdom" series is remarkably creative and well done, with an engaging hero and a complicated but comprehensible alternate world. The "Seventh Tower" series is action packed, and based in a coherent, complex and imaginatively created world. The problem with both series is that they were awfully padded out in the middle, and could easily have been, at most, trilogies. When I read the first Troubletwisters book I thought we were in for another good start-slow middle-strong finish opus.

Well, the very good news is that this book two is, if anything, better than book one. In book one the twins were awfully dense about their developing powers and the adults were miserly with explanations, so that you were frustrated by how slowly the story was being set up. This book two takes off like a rocket, with a lot more action, character development and advancement of the story. (Although, chapter one has a lot of narrative explanation of the back story from book one. I like that because, since I read a lot of similar books, it reminds me of where we are, what happened before, and who the major characters are. Some authors try to weave that info into the story and dialogue, but I prefer a straight intro that gets that out of the way.)

The twins remain appealing characters, and the sibling rivalry angle has been mostly abandoned. The introduction of a new character, Tara, adds some nice variety.
