The end of the world comes not with fire or ice, but a flash of light...

Laney and her friends only survive the supernova because they're on a field trip to an underground science facility. When she and the other nine survivors emerge, Laney finds a world of corpses, red smog, and tight supplies.

And worst of all, the distant exploding star has destroyed the ozone layer.  After losing family to skin cancer, Laney's no stranger to what the sun can do.  It's already destroyed her world and now it's coming for everyone else.

Staying alive and finding her father means that Laney must face her deepest fear—her fear of hope.  

But can any be found in this new reality?

 The Destroyers Series, Books 1-5

Priced at $8.99, you'll spend nearly $6.00 less on this omnibus than by buying books 1-5 of the series one at a time.
That's a 40% discount!

This Omnibus includes all five books of the Young Adult Destroyers
Series: Tempest, Inferno, Outbreak, Frostbite, and Ancient. Included is
a table of contents to easily choose which book you'd like to read.

Tempest: Sixteen-year-old Janelle knows something's not right with
her father when they move to their new home in Florida. He refuses to
evacuate them from the coast when a hurricane bears down on them,
despite the fact that all their neighbors have gone. Even worse, it
seems like there's something he wants to tell her, something terrifying,
but he's not quite opening up.

Then Janelle's life flips upside down when a teenage boy, Gary,
materializes out of the storm right in front of her. He bears a strange
marking on his arm, a gray spiral that matches the one she was born
with. Perhaps her strange birthmark means something after all. But when
she points out Gary's mark to her father, he refuses to speak more about

It's up to Janelle to find the truth about the connection she and
Gary share. When she tracks Gary down again and discovers it, it's far
more terrifying than she could ever imagine: she and Gary share a
powerful, deadly curse. Worse, learning the truth is only the start of
Janelle's horrifying adventure into a world she had never imagined.

Inferno: Ever since becoming leader of the human hurricanes called
Tempests, 16-year-old Janelle is overdue for a vacation. But the trip to
Hawaii quickly presents its own problems when she meets Kenna, a local
sophomore who makes the volcano start rumbling when she's nearby. So
when Kenna gets kidnapped, Janelle has to find her. If she doesn't,
Kenna's secret could mean the end of civilization and the death of
everyone she loves.

Outbreak: Paul doesn’t want to kill anyone. All he’s wanted through
his teenage years is to have his first Outbreak, where he’ll leave his
body to take the form of a tornado. In Mobley, Oklahoma, it’s a normal
part of growing up. But just as his wish is granted, he learns that his
ability can be used for an evil purpose–and that those in charge are
watching him.

Frostbite: Sophia’s teenage years are plagued with another presence
that lives inside her–one that freezes everything around her whenever
she gets upset or angry. When a terrifying storm goddess arrives in
town, it’s determined to get out of Sophia and join her…even it it means
Sophia’s destruction and the end of the world.

Ancient: With the insane goddess Andrina on the loose, Janelle and
her friends have no choice but to seek out Huracan, the ancient Mayan
god of storms, to combat her. But their solution could lead to more
problems than they ever anticipated...

Told from the point of view of five different characters, this is the conclusion to the Destroyers Series.

Sixteen-year-old Janelle knows something's not right when she moves to her new Florida home. During a deadly hurricane, a teenage boy materializes out of the storm in front of her--Gary. He bears a gray spiral marking on his arm that matches the one she was born with. Janelle can almost wave it off as coincidence until he gives her the most horrible news of her life. Janelle's dreams of becoming a doctor and saving people shatter, for she and Gary are Tempests, literally able to become a force of nature--and soon it will be her time to kill. Can she escape her terrifying destiny? 

"The plot was fast paced and constantly moving along. I was so intrigued by the Tempests that I had a hard time putting the book down. I am looking forward to the next book in the Destroyers series."--Reading Vacation

"From the initial scene with the hurricane bearing down on Janelle and her dad, this story pulls you right along through to the surprising conclusion. Creative and entertaining, this book is good fun from start to finish."--GraceKrispy, MotherLode Blog

"In all, Tempest is a wonderfully brisk read full of angst and self-discovery. Most of the characters ring true and are decently realized. The innovations are fresh and invigorating. I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone, or to anyone's teenagers."--Journal of Always Reviews

 All three books of the Deathwind Trilogy are included in this complete set for one low price! Set after the events of Holly Hook's bestselling Destroyers Series, the Deathwind Trilogy follows the adventures of 16 year old Allie, who is cursed to turn into a tornado every time it storms. This trilogy may be read either alone or as a continuation of of the Destroyers Series.
In Twisted, Allie's storm chasing trip goes horribly wrong, leaving her cursed--she turns into a tornado each time she's in a storm. Unable to control her transformations, she must find a cure for her new affliction before she kills someone she loves--and that could be her family or her best friend, Tommy. With Tommy, Allie journeys back to the plains to find those who made her this way. She meets others with her curse, and it turns out she has some unique abilities of her own--abilities that others plan to use for their own sinister purposes. 

Allie's adventures are continued in Torn (#2 Deathwind Trilogy) and concluded in Unleashed (#3 Deathwind Trilogy.)

Praise for Twisted, Book One of the Deathwind Trilogy:

"I really enjoyed Twisted. It’s so different than other YA paranormal books out there and I definitely think it’s worth a read on that alone. I absolutely want to read the other books in The Deathwind series and I would definitely read other books by the same author."--Tiffany Michele "Book and Coffee Addict"

"You will fall in love with not just the characters but the story itself. It is one amazing books that will stick with you long after you have turned that last page. This is one trilogy that I am looking forward to the next book."--Nancy Allen, The Avid Reader Blog

"Whew! That was quite a whirlwind story! I found myself rapidly perusing this book, afraid that I might get whisked away if I don't hold on to the pages."Claire, "Coffeeholic Bookworm"
Ever since her mother left her, Sophia’s teenage years have been plagued
with another presence that lives inside her–an angry old hag that
freezes everything around her whenever she gets upset or angry. She
cannot tell her grandmother or anyone else of the other, even though it
can rise up and kill everyone she loves in an instant.

But everything reaches a tipping point when she learns that her
boyfriend, Shane, has been spying on her best friend, Callie. It seems
that Callie has some secrets of her own--she can control the wind and
the waves. Worse still, storm clouds fill her eyes sometimes, and Shane
has taken his video of her to the Internet. When Sophia learns of
Shane's betrayal, the hag inside her rises up, nearly killing him and
exposing her own secret.

Things worsen when she runs to Callie, only to discover that her
best friend is a Tempest--a human hurricane--and that an insane goddess
is after Callie's family. Sophia is quickly discovered by Andrina…and
the hag inside Sophia sees its opportunity for freedom. The other
inside her wants to join Andrina and help end the world. If it gets
out, Sophia will face her own destruction.
