This spin-off series is both exceedingly clever and action-packed, and will satisfy readers who miss the fairy world and Artemis Fowl's genius antics. Myles can easily be compared to Artemis, and always wants to one-up his older brother's accomplishments. And while Butler was always the one keeping Artemis in check, here we have Myles' twin, Beckett. He runs on pure instinct, performs expert-level martial arts moves (guard your knee caps), and has a secret connection to all living things that we won't give away here. Author Eoin Colfer also presents us with some fabulous villains, as he always does: the eternal-youth-obsessed evil genius Lord Teddy Bleedham-Drye and the militant interrogation expert Sister Jeronima Gonzalez-Ramos de Zarate of Bilbao. The names alone are priceless. As is the name of Sister Jeronima's secret organization, with an acronym of ACRONYM.

The Fowl Twins takes these unforgettable characters and puts them in plenty of nail-biting chase scenes and double-cross situations. There are boat chases, plane ejector seats, cliff dives, and prison breaks. And there's not one, but two, private islands full of high-tech gadgets. Strap into your self-regenerating fairy suit. This series is off to an exciting start.
