THE DYSASTERS by P.C. and Kristin Cast
The Dysasters Series, Book 1
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A fast-paced beginning to a world which opens the reader to the possibility of a new type of hero.
THE DYSASTERS is part fantasy and part science fiction with a hint of superhero origin stories on the side. This writing duo effortlessly combines the emotions of the characters with the action surrounding their developing powers.
As soon as I started reading, I instantly became invested in the characters’ lives. I loved how we are in at the start of the discovery of who they are and what their powers are. Yet, the part which stands out the most is how well the authors incorporate the loss both Foster and Tate has just dealt with. The emotions are heightened and this has a direct link to how their abilities are manifested. It is all really good and quite the ride.
Though I will say, in the end, we are left hanging, so don’t expect to have everything tied up neatly with a bow for you. Honestly, I cannot wait to see what happens next. It is my hope that this is only the beginning of an epic series spanning multiple books.

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?
