As I said in my review for Troubletwisters, the potential is definitely there for something great and I felt that this did deliver a bitthan the last The cover was amazing who can resist devil cats with glowing eyes on the front and a saber tooth tiger on the back WHAT CHILD CAN RESIST There was a lot higher ratio of action to morally questioning yourself and all things evil which anyone will admit got boring very quickly in 1 , Tara was fab and Garth and Sean successfully led me d As I said in my review for Troubletwisters, the potential is definitely there for something great and I felt that this did deliver a bitthan the last The cover was amazing who can resist devil cats with glowing eyes on the front and a saber tooth tiger on the back WHAT CHILD CAN RESIST There was a lo
For a children s book it was good, and the lack of teenage angst was very appreciated.Names could be a lotcreative because really The Evil doesn t inspire fear.More like hysterical laughter.Some nice character developement and the supportive characters were starting to be fleshed out.The powers continued to be nice and original.The main issue I had with it was the fact most of the book was spent w
This was very slow to progress to its climax It was a good sequel to 1 despite this Figuring out what was ahead was also challenging as ultimately the outcome was unexpected For example, I d have thought that Rennie was out of the picture and mention of her just a reference t
A good solid read, great pace and lots of exciting tension, which was sustained well throughout I did wonder how the second book in this series would compare to the first, and I think this is actually an improvement I look forward to re
The second book in the Troubletwisters series finds the small seaside town of Portland threatened by a fragment of The Evil that menaced it in Book 1 At least, so the Shield twins suspect Jack and Jaide are still a bit jumpy after their narrow victory in their first adventure The wards are all intact, protecting Portland, and the world, from the all consuming hunger that lurks outside our universe But Jack can never forget how it felt to have The Evil invading his mind, tempting him to join The second book in the Troubletwisters series finds the small seaside town of Portland threatened by a fragment of The Evil that menaced it in Book 1 At least, so the Shield twins suspect Jack and Jaide are still a bit jumpy after their narrow victory in their first adventure The wards are all intact, protecting Portland, and the world, from the all consuming hunger that lurks outside our universe But Jack can never forget how it felt to have The Evil invading his mind, tempting him to join it And neither Jack nor Jaide finds it easy to take Grandma X at her word, since she hardly ever gives their questions a straight answer Mind your own business simply doesn t cut it with these curious kids, even though they know they have a lot to learn about controlling their gifts as future Wardens and that it is these still unruly gifts that giv

The protagonists, especially Jaide were kinda annoying in that they came off as rather stupid to me I ve been told before about other people who have annoyed me that they re just kids as if that s an excuse I still find it annoying.Anyway, the most annoying part of the book was how full of confirmation bias it was Jaide basically develops a theory pretty early on, and then just REFUSES to give up on it despite evidence to the contrary She doesn t even really try to come up with other pos The protagonists, especially Jaide were kinda annoying in that they came off as rather stupid to me I
I really liked this book I wasn t sure how it would go, seeing as it had been April when I read the first book, but Garth and Sean explained just enough to bring back the rest of the book, without people who had just read the first book to get bored At the beginning, it was sort of reminiscent of the hundreds of other books I ve read in this genre, however, that delusion didn t last long Every time you thought you had it all figured out, something else came along and bam you were back to sq I really liked this book I wasn t sure how it would go, seeing as it had been April when I read the first book, but Garth and Sean explained just enough to bring back the rest of the
