Twins Jaide and Jack Shield are about to discover a secret - that they're Troubletwisters and must defend the world against a dark, evil force. And they're about to discover the powers that go with that secret. The exciting, mysterious first book in a major series from fantasy masters Garth Nix and Sean Williams.

'Come to us, Troubletwisters, join us . welcome, most welcome!'

When their home mysteriously explodes around their ears, twins Jack and Jaide are sent to stay with a grandmother they have never met, in a town they have never heard of. Portland might seem boring and quiet, but it soon becomes apparent that Grandma X is more than a little eccentric, and there are very strange happenings in the town. Talking cats, swarms of cockroaches, a miniature tornado trashing their room - the twins are about to find out what it means to be a troubletwister!
