Blog Tour Review + Giveaway—The Dysasters (The Dysasters #1) by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Publisher: Wednesday Books
Published: February 26, 2019
Genre: YA Fantasy
Source: Print ARC
Rating: 3 Stars

Foster Stewart knows she's different. Her life has never been "normal." Talking to plants and controlling cloud formations aren't things most seventeen year olds are into. Tate "Nighthawk" Taylor is perfect. Star quarterback and all around dreamy boy next door he never thought about his "extra" abilities. What quarterback wouldn't want night vision? That's not weird, right? It's cool!

But on the night of their first meeting a deadly tornado brings them together and awakens their true abilities - the power to control the element air. Unbeknown to Tate and Foster, they are the first in a group of teens that were genetically manipulated before birth to bond with the elements. Which truly sucks for Foster, as she has to face the fact that Dr. Rick Stewart, her beloved scientist father, betrayed her and now wants to use her and the others for his own nefarious world domination plot.

Foster and Tate must stop Dr. Stewart and his minions before he destroys their lives and the world.

Well, that was interesting. I’ve been reading P.C. And Kristin Cast since the beginning when they wrote the House of Night series. It was engaging and fun. It also helped that it was widely popular because hello...vampires!
The Dysasters was different but good. There were times that I felt a little bit confused with the writing. It didn’t flow well, in my opinion. I had to sometimes re-read paragraphs because it was just written funny. 

I liked the premise of the book but felt like it somehow fell short. The characters were okay enough. But I never felt a true connection to them. Overall, this is just a case of “it’s not you, it’s me”. I definitely think that if you’re a fan of the authors or just need something new to read in general, then you should go ahead and try this. It has kids that can control the elements and an evil scientist trying to play god!
