The fourth installment of the thrilling middle-grade fantasy series from bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams.

Jack and Jaide Shield have defended themselves against The Evil before -- but it's never been as dangerous as this.  It isn't just the town of Portland that's threatened, it's the whole Earth . . . and certain dimensions beyond.

The Wardens have devised a plan to get rid of The Evil once and for all.  The only problem is that destroying The Evil may also mean abandoning some innocent people -- including one of the twins.

The battle against The Evil is going to places it's never been -- places Jack and Jaide would have never even imagined possible.  Their mission is clear:  survive the storm that's coming, and save the ones who are missing.

Praise For Troubletwisters Book 4: The Missing


"Full of adventure and the unexpected, the first book in Nix and Williams's new series is delightfully twisted. The pacing is perfect, the setting is eerily dark, the faceless Evil rings true, and the resolution is satisfying." -- BOOKLIST


"This gripping fantasy for the middle-grade set delivers magic and delightful dollops of ick." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
