The Mystery of the Golden Card

The Mystery of the Golden Card (Troubletwisters, #3)The Mystery of the Golden Card by Garth Nix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a really consistent, well-written series. The twins are engaging (although, as an adult I sometimes find them so infuriatingly stubborn!) and the adventures are spine-tingling and suspenseful. I also find myself getting very irritated with Grandma X when she doesn’t tell the twins things they need to know, and then she disapproves when they get it wrong. Not fair!
The thing I like most about the series, though, is the amount of horror in the story. There is just enough squeamish scariness in here to scare a younger reader, but not enough to freak them out completely. Good stuff!
