On the day of their 13th birthdays, twins Jack and Maddie Austin receive a special gift from their Uncle Benny: two necklaces, along with a note shrouded in secrecy. The celebration is interrupted by three intruders, led by the evil being Tardon, who kidnaps the twin's parents. Uncle Benny manages to escape with the twins and later, reveals the truth behind both their gifts and identities: that Jack and Maddie are powerful wizards from the magical realm. Now, faced with the decision of a lifetime, they must return to that realm, rescue their parents and save all the realms from imminent doom.

Jack and Matty (short for Matilda?) are twins. A very uncommon thing in our world. It is even more rare from the realm where they have come from! Tomorrow is their 13th birthday and their lives are about to change forever. Their innocence will be shattered and they will need to come together if they hope to survive.
I really enjoyed this novel. There was the right amount fantasy but still feels as if it is real. The author has done an excellent job of slowly releasing details,
foreshadowing, without giving away too much.
The narrator reading the story helped to add a sense of character. For the most part I enjoyed her performance though occasionally I felt the emphasis was a little off how I felt the situation should have been. I really liked the sound of her voice and how she slightly changed her voice depending on who was the speaker.
I cannot wait to listen to the next book. We are left knowing there is more coming as the story most definitely cannot be left as it is at the end of this book. You are left happy enough ..... But eager to know what happens next in the twins adventure.
I received a copy of this audible recording in exchange for my honest opinion which I have provided based on my personal use, having listened no less than three times!
