Twisted by Holly Hook ~ Review + Giveaway

Tour Schedule

Twisted by Holly Hook

Series: Deathwind Trilogy #1
Released: December 15, 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal

Sixteen-year-old Allie’s going on the vacation of her life: tornado chasing. What can possibly go wrong with that?

But a terrifying, magical experience leaves Allie shocked and confused, and she learns that she now bears an awful curse.

Every time there’s a storm, she turns into a tornado. Literally.

Allie has no choice but to flee her hometown–if she stays, her new powers could harm or even kill everyone she loves.

She must return to the plains and find those who made her this way. But this journey is only the beginning of her adventure.

Twisted is the first book of the Deathwind Trilogy, a new young adult and teen paranormal romance series. The second book, Torn, is also available. Book Three of the Deathwind Trilogy, Unleashed, will be released in Summer of 2015.


Twisted by Holly Hook was an extremely unique concept that has yet to enter the general Young Adult Paranormal genre, and I very much enjoyed the concept and the ideas behind the story. However, I felt that some of the parts were rushed and I didn't get enough information on why and how and what for some of these things, but having said that, there was enough twists and turns and surprises to keep you glued to its pages. 

I quite liked Allie and I felt that her attitude, her anger regarding the circumstances that she has reluctantly found herself in was extremely refreshing, she was truthful in her exploration of her feelings and I liked her pro-activeness. 

I will be picking up the consecutive books to this series to see how both the writer, story and characters evolve. Whilst there may have been some information holes through the book, there was enough of the story for the reader to understand what is going on and the revelations, actions and surprising scenes were truly enough to have you fast-flipping the pages. It was quite a short read but I do look forward to the rest of the Deathwind Trilogy. Twisted has an amazing idea and concept and I cannot wait till Holly further explores and divulge more of the story in the next books in the series.
