Start with two innocent children who are living relatively normal lives, add in a sudden unexplained explosion that levels the family home, a kooky grandmother, and a villain that takes creepy-crawly to a whole new level, and you have Garth Nix and Sean Williams' Troubletwisters. Because itís geared towards elementary schoolers, this book will not be very satisfying for adults. But itís still a good choice for kids.

From official release/information:

Product Description: A spectacular new middle-grade fantasy series from NYT bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams, in which two twins find that they must act as wards against a threatening evil.

The Evil has been trying to break into our dimension and dominate the earth for centuries. Unbeknownst to most of us, there are Wardens all over the globe, who protect humanity from the Evil that asserts itself at the Portals, which are the only places through which the Evil may pass into our world.

Jaide and Jack Shield don't know that the world is under attack. They don't know that their dad and their Grandma X, who they move in with, are Wardens, or that they themselves are troubletwisters, young Wardens just coming into their powers.
