Book Tour Stop!

Today is my tour stop for The Dysasters by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast!  I’d like to thank Pan Macmillan for having me on tour!  Below you’ll find my review for the book and details of where you can go to win a copy for yourself!



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.




Many thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia for providing me with a copy of The Dysasters in exchange for an honest review.

Foster and Tate have been thrown together in the worst way possible, in the middle of a giant tornado.  When they somehow seem to be able to force that tornado to obey their commands, it sets them on a path where they’ll be running for their lives.  With four people after them who have special powers of their own, they’ll need to figure out what their plans are and how to stop them before it’s too late.

The Dysasters was a fun, superhero themed book that was fast paced and included quite a few sketches of scenes, drawn in a comic book / superhero type style.  I love that these were included, it really added to the vibe of the story.   There were some nice pop culture and music references (I will have the song Rockin’ Robin stuck in my head forever) that also gave the story a truly modern feel.  The plot and writing were dramatic and sometimes over the top, but I kind of feel like that’s how a superhero book should be, just pure entertainment.

My absolute favourite character was Tate’s G-Pa and his dog, Bugs-a-million.  Who doesn’t love a feisty, sharp as a tack 80 year old!

I’m really looking forward to the next book and finding out what happens in the rest of the story!
