Publisher's Summary

A man with a secret that he doesn't want to share.

Michael James Lewis, a 44-year-old geophysicist, lives a life most would envy. Handsome, well-paid, and well-traveled, what could be the problem?

First, he can't tell anyone about his psychic ability. He can't admit that he can see horrifying visions of disturbing future disasters through a kaleidoscope.

Second, someone has been watching him for a very long time, but now, they have aggressively attempted to abduct Mike.

A 2018 B.R.A.G. Medallion winner, Kaleidoscope is the first fast-paced, captivating novel in the Vision Chronicles series by award-winning author Chariss K. Walker!

The Vision Chronicles, a nine-book thriller series, is best listened to in order. The series is a slice-of-life metaphysical/visionary story that details Mike's changing ability and his survival from the hired thugs who doggedly pursue him.

"A cliff-hanger from the start, this book is a great beginning to a suspenseful series.” (Benedict Stuart, author of The Proximity of Stars)

If you love mind-boggling suspense with a dash of paranormal and a touch of romance, this is the thriller series for you.

loved everything about this audible!

The single best audible I've listed to this year
What happens when you have the ability to see into the future, and, someone very powerful wants that ability from you? You get a story filled with action, deceit and death. This is a must read for the year!!

The narration was excellent. Voices were perfect for the characters.

I received a free copy of this audible, I'm thrilled to be able to provide my review.

Extremely suspenseful and exciting!

The only problem I have with this book, it was over too soon. From the very beginning, you are on the edge of your seat! It is an almost nonstop action packed ride! Secrets, betrayal, suspicious activity, excitement, these are just a few things you experience in this book! For the most part, Michael is a normal man. However, there is one aspect about him that is quite abnormal. Michael has an ability that gives him an edge in life. One major issue, others want to use his ability in the most heinous manner! His life, and those around him, or on the line. When you get to the end of this book, you will desperately seek out the next book in the series. The author does an excellent job of leaving us with a major cliffhanger!

This should be made into a TV series or a movie!

I have said from the time I read the e-books that this should be made into a TV series or a movie! David Williams has the perfect voice for this story about a man with paranormal abilities-which he doesn't really want.

Great!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I believe that the best books are the ones that grip you from the first paragraph. In this case, that was true. I loved this book. As soon as I knew it was about psychics, I knew I needed to get this book and to read it. Or in this case, listen to it.

There was fantastic character development throughout this book. I wasn't sure if I liked the main character at first but as the story progressed, I really got invested in the story and the happenings. I liked the narration. It was not the best but it wasn't bad at all. I felt as though some parts could have been better but they were very few and far between

Extremely suspenseful with a hint of paranormal

For me it took me a chapter or two to get into the book as the author set the scene and developed the characters with the hint of that paranormal ability of some foreshadowing of the future. Michael doesn't have enough of the ability due to his fighting to hide it to do anything with it. As the story progresses, people begin coming after Michael and more of Michael's ability starts to emerge. The author does a great job of developing her characters and the plots and sub-plots throughout the book to keep you on your seat and listening to the book, When I got to the end I was actually looking to verify that I was at the end of the book and that there wasn't any more. The author had done such a great job leaving you with a major cliff-hanger. Looking forward to the next book in this series by this author.

Good idea...but

The narrator tried his best with this story but although the initial idea was promising it reads as if a wannabe is sitting in a closed room with ridiculous imaginings of what a female should be and how butch a man should be. Dreadful stereotypes

A gift or curse? either way a great listen

I enjoyed this book. I have listened to this authors series Becky Tibbs a Medium's Mystery Series and enjoyed all three books so thought I would give her other series ago (The Vision Chronicles). Although very different from the Medium series, this book is more grown up and more focussed on character development, I still enjoyed it. The story did seem to have a very sudden ending but I think that is because it is set to continue in the next book, which I am looking forward to. I liked the way the story developed and you had the mystery of who the main character should be trusting. The sy-fi element to the story was interesting and slowly drags you into the story so before you know it you are hooked and staying up well last your bedtime, just to find out what is going to happen. I wouldn't say it is action packed but Mike has to learn to fight as well as relearn what Kaleidoscope could mean for him.
Mike can't close his eyes unless he wants to see natural disasters play out in front of his eyes and for years he has been trying to hide from it with drink or exhaustion. But fed up with his meaningless life were he can't get close to anyone for fear of them finding out his secret he turns to a friend who is a psychologist, rather than get him committed his friend encourages him to keep a journal of the event. By doing so Mike sets in motion something that will change his life for ever. People are watching him and have been for years, waiting for just this moment, the moment he wakes up and starts to use his powers to tell the future. Will having the ability to see the future help him decide who he should trust? because his life has just got a whole dangerous.
I liked the narrator and thought his laid back style helped to drag you into the story.
