In honour of Eugene Lambert’s ‘Sign of One’, we’re sharing our favourite twins in YA! But do any of them have twisted blood?

In Eugene Lambert’s terrifying dystopian world of ‘Sign of One’, a dump-world for human outcasts, identical twins are feared. Only one will grow up human, while the other becomes a condemned monster with ‘twisted’ blood.

Inspired by this terrifying prospect, we’re going to share our favourite twins in YA. But do any of them have twisted blood?

Fred & George (‘Harry Potter’ by JK Rowling)

fred and george fireworks

Fred and George have everybody’s hearts. These funny, teasing, entrepreneurial, ginger boys had everyone smiling as soon as they stepped on screen or appeared on the page. And we’re still not over it, before you ask.

Does one have twisted blood? There’s not a hint of badness in these Weasleys’.

Tippi & Grace (‘One’ by Sarah Crossan)

it isn't fair

This book, man. THIS BOOK. Tippi and Grace are conjoined twins and everything is about to change for them. When finances in the family become strained, the girls are no longer able to be home-schooled and they’re sent to high school. While in search of friends, love and acceptance, Tippi and Grace have to make a heart-breaking decision. Have tissues ready!

Does one have twisted blood? NEVER.

Dante & Ember (‘Talon’ by Julie Kagawa)


Dragons! Ember Hill is a dragon disguising her true form by passing as a human and, alongside her twin brother, she is determined to fight the powerful Order dedicated to killing dragons. That is, until she meets a member of the Order who doesn’t seem as bad as she first expected.

Does one have twisted blood? Yup! But you’ll just have to read and find out.

Cass & Zach (‘The Fire Sermon’ by Francesca Haig)

i'm perfect

In this world, only twins are born, but of those twins, one is always flawed in some way – an Alpha and an Omega. As soon as the Omega is discovered they are branded and cast out, but Cass and Zach both seem perfect. When the Omega is discovered, their fragile relationship will be torn in two, but will it be Cass or Zach who becomes the Omega?

Does one have twisted blood? Oh, yes. But we’re not telling you who!
