Review: The Fowl Twins by Eoin Colfer

Wow, this was my first readalong and I am super excited that I got to take part in this!

The Fowl Twins is a brand new book by Eoin Colfer set in his Artemis Fowl world. This time focusing on Artemis’ younger brothers: Myles and Beckett as they stumbled upon faries, nuns and have a wild adventure from Ireland to Amsterdam.

This readalong was held by Tandem Collective on Instagram and I’ve posted my thoughts on the read as a highlight on my account there. So you can have a peek here if you like!

This book is middle grade so it’s a little different to what I usually blog about but I do enjoy reading it every now and then. And it was the kind of fun adventure that you can only find in middle-grade! It was, unfortunately, a little slow to start with. Something about it felt different to the original series. And though in many ways that’s a good thing, it did mean that it took me some time to get into the book.

But this book focuses on a wonderful sibling relationship. Myles and Beckett are so different but they grow together and they clearly love eachother a lot. And Artemis too. It was just so nice to see and it made it harder to choose a favourite out of the twins because without the other it just wouldn’t be the same.

The way this book ended made it clear that there will be more books in this series. You don’t have to have read the Artemis Fowl books but it certainly helps as you catch a cameo near the end. And there’s an event that’s mentioned that I’m sure must have happened in the original books. But I haven’t quite reached it yet…

At any rate I really enjoyed this book and was glad to be gifted a copy!
