  • Paromjit
    Anyone who has ever read Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series will have a good idea what this new series is going to be like, it features Artemis's younger 11 year old fraternal twin brothers, Myles and Beckett. There is plenty of humour, adventures galore, dastardly villains, and the introduction of a new blue fairy, a pixel (pixie and elf hybrid) Lazuli Heitz, Lower Elements Police (LEP) specialist, ambitious, with no magic powers. Myles is a suit...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a spin off of the popular Artemis Fowl series, featuring the younger twin brother’s of my childhood favourite morally grey mastermind. However, don’t let the idea that this is a ‘spin off’ put you off if you’ve never read any of the Artemis Fowl books. This is completely enjoyable without having read anything before it (although you’ll miss out on squealing at a ...

    mr colfer, no pressure but please blow me away with my favorite twins—4.5 | Myles stopped counting aloud and opened his eyes. "How much do you trust me, Beck?" Beckett smiled. "How big is the universe?" he asked.

    "Fowl and fairy, friends forever." The Artemis Fowl series has always meant a lot to me and it has also always been my favorite series ever. So it's not surprising that The Fowl Twins was my highest anticipated book of the year. Ever since this book was announced I was beyond excited to get back to the magical world of Artemis Fowl. But of course there's always that tiny voice inside the back of your head thinking, what if this spin-off book is n...

    Neutral four? 3.5? Fun but not like fantastic? :)The notorious Fowl family is back, and now we get to hang out with Artemis's twin brothers, Myles and Beckett. Boy are these two kids a hoot! Kidnapped by a nefarious organization called ACRONYM and interrogated by a nun, the Fowl boys are generally having a bad day. As Eoin Colfer is known to do, there's plenty of humor and goofiness paired with realistically evil villains. There's some LEPrecon a...

    “How much do you trust me, Beck?” Beckett smiled. “How big is the universe?” he said. On my blog. Galley provided by publisherArtemis Fowl was easily one of my favourite series growing up. So when I found out there was going to be a sequel series, God knows how excited I was. And this, the first book in that series, does not disappoint.The Fowl Twins follows Artemis’s younger twin brothers, Beckett and Myles. The narrative is somewhat ...

    I received an ARC from BookishFirst in exchange for an honest review.I have never read any of the Artemis Fowl books, so I was worried I wouldn't quite understand this book. That is not the case, I was pulled right into this book's world and could understand everything. I really enjoyed the Fowl Twins and how different they both are, and I loved the world building. This was a fast paced adventure that had me flipping the pages to see what would h...
  • Jenette
    Look, I know I’m not the target audience for this book. But I’m the target audience for this book. Hear me out, this book is a spin-off, it’s relying on a basic familiarity with the Artemis Fowl world and it’s characters. I have been reading Artemis Fowl since it was first published which makes me, in a way, the exact person you want this book to appeal to because I’m the kind of person who last read all the books a year ago (at 30) and...
  • Renee (The B-Roll)
    This book was such a cute little read and really serves as a great Artemis Foul spin-off! I loved the cover art and how vibrant the colors are; it really made this book pop for me and really drew me in. I loved the writing inside and how nicely this book is written. It is not difficult to read or understand and would be perfect as a middle-grade book because it does hold your interest and it has a really intriguing premise. I hope there will be m...
  • Leah Waters
    Another brilliant and fun book by Eoin Colfer! This was such an awesome companion to the Artemis Fowl books, with the signature humor and sass of the original series.(The only problem: I have to wait a year for the sequel!)
  • Ley
    I initially was super hyped to reenter the world of Artemis Fowl through his baby brothers. But, at the same time, I almost feel like I'm too far removed from the series to truly enjoy this as much as I wanted to. The world is still just as rich, and I still adore the magic system in the book. I love learning more about the twins, and I truly love that we have a new LEP Recon officer to root for! But I felt that some of the jokes and puns were mo...
  • The Book Chief
    Wanted to give 3.5 stars, and couldn’tmake myself round it up to 4. Hence, the 3-star rating. I had a lot of expectations from this book, having LOVED the Artemis Fowl series. But while the story is amusing, it has none of the finesse and tightness of plot that the original series possessed. Too many things ‘just happen’ because of magic or superior fairy technology or timing or coincidence. In the AF books, too, there was magic and technol...
  • Miranda
    Received a copy via publisher for review.I was beyond thrilled so here this series would be getting a spin off sequel, and it’s now expanding to graphic novel form and tv! How exciting is all this Artemis fowl news?! So the extended bit for this would be I absolutely adore the writing style even as a kid I always absorbed this authors style and drank it in quickly and engagingly. I’m glad to say even as an adult I felt just as well as I did i...
  • Claire ✨
    A vibrant sequel to the ARTEMIS FOWL series, THE FOWL TWINS follows in the footsteps of its predecessor with the wacky, magical adventure of the titular twins and their fairy companions, with a quirky writing style to match.I have to put a full disclaimer and say that I never finished the Artemis Fowl series. I was a young fry when I borrowed the books from my brothers and devoured all that had been released at that time, which was up until The L...

    3 stars rounded up for the shear audacity of me actually liking it.I didn't expect to actually like reading this book. In fact, I expected to get a chapter or two in and drop it. I loved the Artemis Fowl series when I was 12. I'm no longer twelve and my last reread of the series ended up souring my like of it.If I were still 12 I would have adored The Fowl Twins. Now that I'm 28, I'm just surprised I liked it as much as I did. The book is comple...

    Just in time for the Artemis Fowl film to finally arrive in theatres (soon, soon my precious), we also get a new romp of an adventure with the next set of ne’er-do-well Fowl’s. Well, technically Myles and Beckett aren’t that badly behaved on purpose, but they definitely have their brother Artemis’ same penchant for getting into ridiculous scrapes and running afoul (pun duly ignored) of the fairy-folk. Unlike Artemis though, Myles and Beck...
  • Allisa White
    CharactersMyles and Beckett Fowl are, of course, the stars of the show. Of course they had to show up Artemis by having their first fairy encounter at age 11, instead of age 12—and that really goes to show you what the twins, or at least Myles, is bent on doing during the entirety of this book.Myles is like a mini Artemis. He's worn suits all his life, lectures excessively (though apparently not nearly as long as Artemis), and comes up with gen...

    I can't believe Eoin Colfer is back in Artemis Fowl's universe. I was devastated, in a good way, while reading the ending of The last guardian and knowing he wanted to write more about the Fowl could I not diving into this book?The Fowl Twins is the first book of a new (I hope long) series and I really loved the story. I've read everything written by Colfer, so I'm used to his style and I couldn't wait to laugh and be surprised by pl...
  • Michelle
    I was first introduced to Eoin Colfer through the Artemis Fowl book series when I was stocking my first middle school classroom. I instantly fell in love with Colfer’s take on elves, dwarves, and all fairy beings. When my son declared that he will ONLY read graphic novels I was very grateful to learn that the series had been adapted to graphic novel form so I could share my love of Artemis and Butler’s adventures. Now Reader Friends, we have ...
  • Joanna Bennett
    I will start this review off by saying that I have not read any Artemis Fowl books before reading this one. I have only read one other book by Eoin Colfer and that was his new Fantasy book for adults. I don’t think it is necessary to read the Artemis Fowl books to understand this one since it was still easy to understand everything.After reading two books by this author in the last month I can say that I just don’t think this specific author ...
  • Laura Newsholme
    This was my first foray into the world of Artemis Fowl and I really enjoyed it! This tells the story of Myles and Beckett Fowl, the twin sons of Artemis Sr and younger brothers of Artemis Jr, an aristocrat searching for immortality, a toy troll called Whistle Blower, a nun-terrigator and a special agent fairy. What I enjoyed most about this tale was the tone. It is very wry and tongue in cheek and as an adult, really appealed to me. I also loved ...
  • ForeverDay
    I had a really good time reading this. Plot moved apace and it was just a fun experience all round. However, it did feel like the characters were just a bit too similar to Artemis Fowl. Particularly Miles and Lazuli who were dead ringers for Artemis and Holly (Dead. Ringers.) but Beckett too sort of took the place of Butler and Whistle Blower, Mulch’s. I do wonder why Eoin chose another female fairy so similar to Holly. He’s usually pretty go...

    The Fowl Twins by Eion ColferThe Artemis Fowl series has often been claimed to be the "next Harry Potter", but while it shares the same fantastically imaginative story line and colorful descriptions, this is darker and more humorous than any J K Rowling's books. The characters are all unique and love able.Eoin Colfer has added a new aspect to by adding Artemis's brothers.Criminal genius runs in this family...Artemis Fowl is a genius who stole fai...

This book is leased with intresting gadgets, science, robots and artificial intelligence system developed by Artemis to protect his twin brothers and keep an eye on them.

  • Michelle Kenneth -
    This book is like Spy Kids and very much like Artemis Fowl, but throw in Artemis's twin brothers.While Artemis is out gallivanting around the universe, his brothers get caught up in a strange series of events that lead them to capture, escape and a face-off with some weird Lord that is obsessed with the fountain of youth. The twins REGRETTABLES team is rounded off with a pixel and a troll, and of course their AI unit called NANNI. The story is fi...

    I won an advanced copy of The Fowl Twins through BookishFirst, so that I could share my review!The Fowl Twins is the newest installation in Eion Colfer’s beloved Artemis Fowl book, which is sure to have readers on the edge of their seats (and then lying on the floor convulsively laughing)! The story follows Artemis’s younger twin brothers, who are proof that evil genius runs in the family. Beckett is a messy boy, whose just turned eleven. His...
  • Dan
    First up, I have never read the Artemis Fowl novels and do know that this book is intended for a younger audience (middle grade, I believe). I sometimes enjoy reading books for younger readers because they are so much fun, but I could not get into this one. It started out slow. The twins are so different from one another which made it intriguing as they compliment one another. I enjoyed the trolls and fairies and the whole fantasy aspect. But I c...
  • Cathy Sites
    Clever quips and some laugh out loud moments as the Twins develop as characters. Two things keep this from 4-5 stars: Didn't really love the narrator point of view storyline, reminded me of old-timey holiday cartoons and didn't fit this present day story. And I miss Butler. Clearly there will be sequels to this book, so maybe he is coming again in the future.
  • Roben
    I'm quite taken with Myles, Beckett, Lazuli, and Whistle-Blower. I'm keenly looking forward to their further adventures. Well done, Mr. Colfer.
