    • Abstract:
      Summary: One week after their eleventh birthday, the Fowl twins-- scientist Myles, and Beckett, the force of nature-- befriend a troll who has clawed his way through the earth's crust to the surface. Unfortunately the troll is being chased by a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun, who both need the magical creature for their own gain, as well as a fairy-in-training who has been assigned to protect him. As the trio get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened and killed (temporarily), they discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists between a pair of twins. -- adapted from jacket

Make way for a new generation of Fowl adventures and fans. In Colfer's opening volume of this spin-off to his popular Artemis Fowl series, readers are introduced to the Fowl twins, Artemis' much younger brothers, who prove their mettle in combat with wrong-doers as they navigate the intersection of a techno-dominated human world and that of Fairie—equally gadget-driven but uniquely oddball. While Artemis is on his way to Mars, the twins (Myles, besuited and intellectual; and Beckett, a wild, wide-eyed nature-child) prove themselves up to the task of defying the evil-minded on two fronts: first, the machinations of Lord Bleedham-Drye, an uber-rich 150-year-old intent on living forever; and second, Sister Jeronima, a nun who leads a secret, government-­sponsored organization devoted to infiltrating the unhuman. When a purple, toy-sized, bristly troll emerges on the island off Ireland where the twins live, non-stop adventure is set in motion. Will the Lord or the nun manage to wrest the troll from the others? And to what purpose? Twists of tongue and story line make for a fun experience. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Colfer's clever spin-off of the Artemis Fowl series focuses on Artemis Fowl's twin younger brothers—hyperintelligent Myles and near-feral Beckett, both 11. With their older sibling on Mars, the fraternal twins are dragged into a madcap adventure when they're kidnapped by Lord Teddy Bleedham-Drye, a 150-year-old duke seeking the secret to immortality, which he believes rests in the venom of a diminutive troll that the twins are protecting. Sister Jeromina, a nun and agent of the secret organization ACRONYM, also has them in her sights. Meanwhile, Lower Elements Police Specialist Lazuli Heitz, a pixel (pixie-elf hybrid), seeks to rescue the imperiled troll—and the twins by extension. A globetrotting caper transpires as the myriad factions attempt to outwit, outsmart, escape, and double-cross one another. Colfer's trademark tongue-in-cheek narrative voice is on full display, his characters existing in a preposterous balance between sincerity and absurdity, mad science, and technology. Though a working familiarity with the previous books is handy, this series opener is accessible and entertaining: the fast-paced plot, filled with unexpected betrayals, death-defying feats, and secret train cars, will appeal to Fowl readers established and new. Agent: Sophie Hicks, Sophie Hicks Agency. Ages 10–14. (Nov.)
