*say hello to my very first blog tour post* Do I know how to do this? no?? *crosses fingers that this is what I’m supposed to be doing*
Okay, after that nerve-wracking start, I’m excited to shared The Dysasters with you today! this is actually the VERY first paperback ARC I’ve ever been sent, and I’m super thrilled to talk about this new book! *insert lots of pictures of my very first arc*
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?
Dysasters has a lot of action, some fun graphics, and quite a few characters. It reads like a younger YA book, and is an alright start to a series.
This book reminds me A LOT of City of Bones. The main character has just turned 18, has red hair, and runs into a guy who turns into a romantic interest. Eerily similar. Oh, and she’s discovering how to use her powers. Hmm.
There’s also a ton of dialogue that makes the story feel a bit choppy. Because of all the dialogue and action, the story could be a bit hard to follow. Since this is an ARC, maybe it’ll be different in the final copy, but I had a bit of trouble reading the Dysasters.
Probably the coolest part of this book are the graphic novel pictures. Apparently, the Dysasters is also being released as a graphic novel, and some of those images are in the regular book. I personally thought they added a nice touch and were kind of fun.
