A spectacular new middle-grade fantasy series from New York Time bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams

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. But soon they will find out...and the responsibility of saving the world will be on their shoulders.

Raves & reviews:

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
