So first off, I have to say that I was really excited when I got the opportunity to review this book as I am a huge fan of the original Artemis Fowl series and have read all the main books in the series, at least the ones that I know about.
The Fowl Twins, by Eoin Colfer, is the sequel to the Artemis Fowl series and follows Artemis' two younger brothers, Myles and Beckett, who as you might have guessed are twins. Myles takes after Artemis as a child genius and is often competing against Artemis, trying to out smart him. Beckett is more hands on and seems simple, but in really is anything but simple. The twins are nothing alike, but the differences work to make an excellent balance that helps them push forward.
Without spoiling too much, Myles and Beckett, along with a toy troll, are kidnapped and have to escape with the help of a non-magical blue pixel named Lazuli. Together, the weird becomes normal, and each member of the team, named the Regrettables, use their skills to get them out of the clutches of a duke obsessed with immortality and a nun who wants to prove that fairies exist.
The story is action packed with lots of plot twists and surprises to keep you reading till the next page. As a teacher, I like the story because it is fantastical enough to pull students in. As a cosplayer, there are just so many fun characters to portray such as suit wearing miles, goldfish tie wearing Beckett, and blue pixel Lazuli. It is one fun story that I highly recommend reading, especially if you are a fan of the original Artemis Fowl series.
