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?
A Story Full of Tornadoes!
THE DYSASTERS opens up with Foster and her stepmom Cora on the run and have been for a full year. When they arrive at a small town, Cora tells Foster that they're looking for someone. That someone is Tate. When the "Core Four" show up, disaster happens and Cora passes away from a heart condition. Foster is forced to go on the run with Tate. It isn't hard to notice there's a connection between them, in a weird, stormy way.
THE DYSASTERS is told in alternating POV between several different characters, including members of the Core Four. They're searching for Tate and Foster because their "Father" wants them. To him, they're the perfect result of experimentation.
"Dysasters" is the perfect title with how many tornadoes they had in this book. This was a very interesting dramatic science fiction book that many will enjoy. I do wish there was more character development, but hopefully it'll come in the next one. That and a bit more depth to the sparking romance between Tate and Foster. The pictures throughout the story gives it a superhero/comic book feel as well. Overall, the concept is unique and has me intrigued for the next installment.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of science fiction, stormy weather, elements, superheroes, and unique plots.
