It is very creative, enjoyable, and Debrosse has a lot of potential as a writer.
DG
While DeBrosse's inventiveness makes this a truly outstanding read, at the heart of it all is an exciting story.
Amazon Customer
He has just enough potential to be someone amazing and groundbreaking that he gets under the reader's skin.

Format: Paperback
Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls is the thinking reader's Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Debut author DeBrosse creates a unique and complex mythology (think: biblically-inspired science fiction where Jackson uses Greek mythology) to frame her story, and it's a refreshing alternative to many YA authors who build off of another already-established fantasy world. The world that you'll encounter in DeBrosse's novel is totally original - you won't get a setting or story like this anywhere else. That, in itself, is a reason to pick up the book.

And it's not the only reason I loved this novel. While DeBrosse's inventiveness makes this a truly outstanding read, at the heart of it all is an exciting story. It's got just the right amount of intergalactic travel and battle to please your inner sci-fi nerd, and just enough romance to keep you turning the pages. You read because you want to know who Jeremy is (as a person and as the hero), what he's capable of, the story behind his world, and how it (and he) will affect the cataclysmic events occurring in ours. Some of the scenes are downright haunting - I dare you not to have creepy dreams about the Haze after a night of reading - and I guarantee that you'll want to buy a pet fizdruft by the end of the first chapter.

It's possible that some young readers will be frustrated by Jeremy, the protagonist. DeBrosse doesn't give you the handsome, kind, generous-yet-filthy-rich prince of Disney lore or the perfect male hero of the typical YA paranormal romance - she's too good of a writer to do that. Yes, Jeremy can be vain and self-centered. But you know what? He's royalty. And he's handsome. And talented. And he knows it. If you've ever met a guy like that, you'll find Jeremy to be a believable character.
