Wednesday Books Presents: The Dyasters + Giveaway!!!

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?


My Thoughts

P.C. and Kristin cast are back!
And this time they are making story time magic of the X-Men -request variety.
With their first book in what looks to be a very promising high action, paranormal, YA
The Dyasters is the perfect read for those who love takes of good against evil.
A race to find your genetically engineered, element controlling, and in most cases totally unaware tribe.
While discovering who you are as a powerful and unique individual.
And for some...
Even managing to fall in love in the process.

Meet Foster and Tate.  The first pair of "wonder twins".  Who meet under what can only be described as disastrous circumstances.  Which cost them both the people that mean most to them.
And brings them and the world face to face with both their power as air elementals, and those who hunt them.

Topping the list of things to get excited about.
The fact that all of the "wonder twins" are 18+.
They are indeed young adults.
Giving this book and it's series a chance to get where it's going without awkward adolescent transitions when members of the cast "grow up."
 The 18+ age factor also makes quite the difference when one takes into account the 30+ adults making up the team sent out by their mad scientist creator to find them.

Not so lovingly referred to within the story as the Fucktastic Four.  Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Eve are the first generation of elementals produced by the mad Dr. Rick.
And to say that their power is causing them a few unwanted "issues" would be the height of oversimplification.
Between Eve's gemstone tumors, and her brothers' element related mental issues.
It is no wonder that their "at any cost" hunt for the "wonder twins" is as compelling as it is.
Even if the elder statesmen of this read do come off as a bit too trusting and naive at times.

The character incorporation within this tale spider webs out from Tate and Foster like a degree of separation chart.  With each new addition bringing a very readable backstory with them. As they merge into the ever-expanding collective.

This book is very fast paced.  Easily read in one sitting.
There is just the right amount of action, suspense, emotionality, and even romance; to keep pages turning.
This is definitely a book that one can "get lost in".
With a plot that keeps one reading just as much for the who's, why's, and where's of the puzzle it presents.  As for the myriad of supporting elements of the story.

Reviewer's Note.
This book is the first book of a series. Due to the fact that it is written to be continuous, however.  It is highly suggested that it be read as part of its intended series.
