Blog Tour+Review: The Dysasters by P.C. + Kristin Cast + Enter the Giveaway!

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 9:00 AM

P.C. and Kristin Cast, the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of the House of Night phenomenon, return to the scene with The Dysasters—the first action-packed novel in a new paranormal fantasy series.

Adoptive daughter of a gifted scientist, Foster Stewart doesn’t live a “normal” life, (not that she’d want to). But controlling cloud formations and seeing airwaves aren’t things most eighteen year olds can do.

Small town star quarterback and quintessential dreamy boy next door, Tate “Nighthawk” Taylor has never thought much about his extra abilities. Sure, his night vision comes in handy during games, but who wouldn’t want that extra edge?

From the moment Foster and Tate collide, their worlds spiral and a deadly tornado forces them to work together, fully awakening their not-so-natural ability - the power to control air.

As they each deal with the tragic loss of loved ones, they’re caught by another devastating blow – they are the first in a group of teens genetically manipulated before birth to bond with the elements, and worse… they’re being hunted.

Now, Foster and Tate must fight to control their abilities as they learn of their past, how they came to be, who’s following them, and what tomorrow will bring… more DYSASTERS?

Title: The Dysasters
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy
Author: P.C. + Kristin Cast
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Publication: Febraury 26th 2019
Cover Rating: 3/5
Reading format: Provided ARC

The Dysasters by P.C. and Kristin Cast is the story of Foster and Tate, two teenagers with special powers that meet at a football game that will change their lives forever. 

Foster is adopted. She lived with a pretty amazing family but tragedy struck and she lost her foster father, Doctor Rick. She still had Cora but ever since Doctor Ricks death, it seems like she hasn't been living a normal life. Which explains why she is in Homer, Missouri(Tornado Alley) with Cora in the middle of a bad storm.

Tate is a football superstar for his high school. He has a great set of parents and a promising future. When he bumps into Foster at the game neither of them knows that they are supposed to meet. You see, both Foster and Tate have special abilities and together they could be extremely powerful.

During the football game all hell breaks loose when a tornado appears. This tornado is placed too perfectly to be a random coincidence and Foster and Tate find out things about themselves and who they are. They are in danger and have to escape even if that means leaving people behind. People who might be dead. But they are being hunted and have no other choice. I guess that's what happens when you are genetically modified teens.

I think the book was beautifully written and it had a good story to tell but I also think there could have been a lot more descriptive details. I always hear people say you have to show, not tell and with how much dialog was in this book there was definitely a lot of telling. There were pictures/drawings throughout the book that did a good bit of showing so maybe that is why there was so much dialog.

In the end, this book turned out to be a lot different than what I was expecting. I was thinking it would be something like Renegades by Marissa Meyer or even X-Men but it was none of those things. That isn't exactly a bad thing, it was unique in its own way but it definitely wasn't my favorite cup of tea. That being said, I know plenty of people who will love and enjoy this book so I definitely recommend giving it a go!

Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.
