Tempest by Holly Hook

Book 1 of the Destroyers Series

Sixteen-year-old Janelle never thought the gray spiral birthmark on her arm meant anything special. That is, until she meets Gary, a boy her age with a birthmark exactly like hers. Gary’s attractive, brooding, and perfectly normal…except for the fact that he materialized out of a dangerous hurricane right in front of her. Janelle’s certain of only one thing. Gary’s mark—and hers, too—mean something, but he’s reluctant to tell her what.

At last she squeezes the truth from Gary about their markings. And the truth is utterly terrifying: Janelle and Gary are more connected to the destructive power of nature than she ever dreamed possible. And learning the truth about herself is only the start of her nightmare.

My Review:
I don't usually do book reviews because I don't have the time to write them with all the writing and reading I do. But, every now and then, you'll find one posted.

This is one of the first books I bought with my Kindle. It immediately swept me away. I'm not sure what the subcategory would be... paranormal, supernatural, or fantasy - but I could care less about what it's considered. It's YA and I LOVE YA. It was different than what has become the norm. The main character, Janelle, grabbed me and I immediately liked her. I found myself sometimes yelling at her when she was making the wrong decisions, knowing the whole time that if I was her, I'd be making those same decisions.

It was really a neat book and I don't want to spoil it, but if you have an eReader, go get it! It's only .99 cents!! There is a paperback as well.

It's a great, fast paced read!! Unique. Engaging. Hard to put down. I can't wait to see what else Ms. Hook has in store for us.

You can buy it here.
