Troubletwisters by Garth Nix and Sean Williams

Twins Jack and Jaide Shield have a normal, comfortable life with their parents...that is until their house blows up. But the mysterious explosion was preceded by the appearance of several white-eyed creatures and a menacing voice. With the loss of their home and so many unanswered questions, their mother takes Jack and Jaide to their father's mother, known only as Grandma X. Once they arrive at Grandma X's old home, the twins notice strange magical forces at work in Grandma X's life. But when the twins start hearing the menacing voice again, they must decide whether Grandma X is either supporting good or evil.

Troubletwisters is a completely original start to a middle-grade fantasy series. Jack and Jaide are not happy about this abrupt change in their lives, especially when it takes them away from their father. But when they arrive in the strange town of Portland, a new education starts for them in learning about their own raw magic and the dangers associated with The Evil. The book may be middle-grade based, but the concepts and somewhat graphic descriptions of creatures moves this series towards young adult age readers.
