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.

I remember the first time I read the House of Night series and the love I had for the series growing up. I remember the late nights and the anxiousness in waiting for the release of the upcoming books. Now here I am with their new upcoming series and am ready to be once again taken on an adventure with this paranormal fantasy. 

Following Foster Stewart and Tate Taylor, two teenagers on the verge of turning eighteen are unexpectedly thrown together at a football game where they soon realize that they are much more special than what they thought themselves to be. Now on the run from a group of people with similar powers, Foster and Tate must find six other teenagers with similar affinities to the elements if they have any hopes of stopping Dr. Stewart and potentially save the world. 

Both authors really brought the character dynamics to fruition. With Foster and Tate's rocky beginnings to friendship to much more to the dynamic between Dr. Stewart and his minions. Even with secondary characters these authors left nothing on the table. 

The authors were able to blend together different elements that make a story successful. With the adventure, the action, the thrill, the romance and the friendship I was on my toes the entire time. Although there were parts where the build up was a little slow, there was not much a chance to take a breath before we were thrown once again into the heart of the story. 

P.C. and Kristin wrote a stunning and remarkable story that hooked me from page one until the very end. I am excited to continue this series and see where the adventure continues and see what is in store for the four currently and the four that we have yet to meet. 

If you are looking for your next YA Paranormal Fantasy than look no further. The Dysasters is a novel worth reading. Truly magical! 

Happy Reading!
