5 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much to St. Martins Press and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
P.C. Cast can never go wrong in my eyes. I became obsessed with her and her daughter after reading the Marked series and I have devoured everything they’ve wrote since.
This book is about Foster who lives with her foster mom Cora and is constantly moving around. Homeschooled and an introvert, Foster is not looking forward to attending a football game that Cora is dragging her to. It doesn’t help that the first person Foster meets is who she believes to be a typical football playing douchebag named Tate who she instantly dislikes. When a massive tornado hits the football field and people start getting hurt Foster and Tate realize there’s something special about the two of them, something they’ve both questioned and almost can’t believe. When they both lose their parents in the storm they realize there’s more to their powers and more people that are like them, but they’re not all good.
I love how P.C. Cast incorporated people that have affinities for the elects just like she did in her Marked series. Normally I’m not huge on fantasy and sci-fi novels but the way she writes them I enjoy them and never get tired of reading her intricate stories. I loved all the characters in this book and I loved the relationship between Foster and Tate. They both were from completely different backgrounds and their lives came together with their powers and they figured out how to use them together to help people.
Another thing I loved about this novel was the storyline. Like I said before I love anything P.C. Cast write and this was such a fun fast read. I love how her books are different from anything I’ve read before and I love that. The way she explains scenes in the story and the detail she goes into almost makes it seem like you’re watching a movie as the book goes on, it’s that vivid and detailed.
Thank you so much to P.C. Cast for writing such an amazing book and St. Martins Press for allowing me to read it. Definitely one of my favorite books of 2019 and I can’t wait for this new series of hers. The ending killed me but I know there’s more amazing work to come!
