The Fowl family is back. The Fowl Twins is a spin-off of the Artemis Fowl series, but you don’t need to know Artemis to enjoy the new book.

This time, we’re getting to know the youngest members of the family, 11-year-old twin brothers Myles and Beckett. We join them as they befriend a troll who’s on the run from a wicked duke and a shady nun. Soon the Fowl twins are dragged into a chase across Europe.

The last Artemis Fowl book came out in 2012. Author Eoin Colfer told TFK that after stepping away from the series for a few years, he was ready to jump back in and focus on the twins. “I really enjoyed writing about Myles and Beckett and their contrary opinions on almost everything.”
