Kaleidoscope (The Vision Chronicles Book 1), by Chariss K. Walker
At 44 years of age, Mike Lewis has seen a lot. He's traveled the world and experienced much that life has to offer but he has a problem and wants a solution. In fact, he is determined to find one. After fifteen years of denying his paranormal ability, Mike Lewis has had enough. Keeping the secret has taken a toll on his personal life. He knows he needs help and reaches out to Dr. Nelson Fitch, an old college friend. During the therapy appointment, Mike shares his closely guarded secret revealing that he sees horrifying distant events of the future through a kaleidoscope every time he closes his eyes. Nelson is shocked by the admission because he’s known Mike for over 25 years, but he teaches Mike to become the passive observer of the frightening visions. When Mike stops fighting this ability, it changes and evolves with his acceptance. As soon as the secret has been told, however, Mike meets Casey, a beautiful socialite. In less than a week, he realizes that someone is after him and they’re determined to learn all they can about his ability. He discovers that his home is bugged and his computers are tracked. Then, the real chaos begins as those ‘watching’ take a more aggressive approach and try to abduct him. In the meantime, the kaleidoscope images warn Mike of his own impending dangerous situations and when he heeds the warnings, he is spared another abduction attempt. Mike wants to know who’s behind the near abductions and spying, but the further he digs to uncover the culprits, the eerier it gets. He finally realizes that the best he can do is to learn how to protect himself, fight as long as he can, and then run.
Kaleidoscope is the first book in The Vision Chronicles, a series which details Mike’s changing ability, and is followed by Spyglass, Window’s Pane and others. This fast-paced series is filled with honest self-reflection, intimacy and tender moments that can bring a tear or a nod of understanding, along with heart-pounding moments of abduction, imprisonment, and near-death experiences as Mike uses his mystic ability selflessly to help his family and friends.
