Editorial Reviews


"Really enjoyable series!" Jane Firebaugh
I am so wrapped up in this series that I have to pick up the next one the minute I finish each one. The characters are wonderful and I feel like I know them personally. Don't miss these.

From the Author

Mike Lewis sees visions of the future through a kaleidoscope, but he can't see that his new romantic interest is working for the company behind the attempted abductions. He can't see who to trust either. Is this mystical ability a gift or a curse?
Kaleidoscope (The Vision Chronicles, Book 1) began with my own personal dream. I dreamed that I saw horrifying images of future events through a kaleidoscope rather than the view of pretty, colored glass. The eight book series, designed to be read in order beginning with Kaleidoscope, Book 1, evolved from that one dream. Each paranormal thriller in the series covers approximately eight weeks in this slice-of-life mystery. The books are filled with metaphysical insight. "Slice-of-life" books are more of a daytime soap opera rather than action adventure. You get a look at the intricate details of the main characters. The series is available in Kindle eBook, paperback, and large print. It is lgbt friendly.

Kaleidoscope: The Vision Chronicles, Book 1 by Chariss Walker, published by CreateSpace Direct is intriguing. It is not a stand-alone book. They are designed to be read in order. There are eight books in this series.

I gave this book five stars. There was a lot of research done to write this captivating book.
Michael James Lewis, aka Mike was a geophysicist working outside Cairo in 1998 when he was thirty. He discovered from a co-worker that he had a special gift. He had spent fifteen years denying his gift of visions.

"After a light dinner, I went to the gym for a grueling workout. It was something I did nearly every night of the week. When on a jobsite, I bought a temporary pass to the nearest gym. My body was lean and hard from the punishment I gave it, but that’s what I needed to find restful sleep."
Mike has a weekly housekeeper, Maria. He realizes there's not a lot of dirt but his living area needs attention. "As a dedicated bachelor, I’m tidy. I subscribe to the rules left over from childhood. If you open it, close it. If you break it, fix it. If you get it out, put it back, and so forth. Nevertheless, dust accumulates and any home takes on a stale odor when windows and doors remain closed for long intervals."

Here is Mike's description of his visions as he tells it to Nelson, who is the first person he ever told. "'Here it is in a nutshell: every time I close my eyes I see visions in a kaleidoscope. It is not the kaleidoscope of childhood filled with pretty-colored glass. It’s a kaleidoscope filled with black and white images of the future. It crackles and sparkles like the one I had as a kid, but rather than geometric shapes, this one shows broken images of future events.

Author Award winning author, Chariss K Walker lives in Amarillo, Texas and has studied religion and metaphysics extensively for many years through seminars, e-courses, home-study courses, self-help books, and earning educational degrees (Bachelors of Metaphysical Sciences and Masters of Divinity). In her words, her real qualifications are what matter more: life experiences, true insight, and helping others. Chariss was designated Ordained Minister. In 2000 and completed the highest degree attainable as Reiki Master/Teacher in 2001. She has helped many with self-assisted healing, meditation, prayer, balancing and opening energy channels, and self-realization and now uses her writings to teach the metaphysical and esoteric concepts she has studied for over thirty years to assist those wanting more from life. She has authored non-fiction books on spiritual growth and searching for the spiritual path. She has also written THE VISION CHRONICLES of which KALEIDOSCOPE is the first installment. According to Walker, `Kaleidoscope (The Vision Chronicles, Book 1) began with a dream. I dreamt that I was viewing an actual 'scene' through a kaleidoscope rather than the pretty colored glass. That one dream evolved into an eight book series. I drew on many experiences from my own past and stories I'd heard growing up in the Mississippi Delta, an area that stretches from Memphis to Vicksburg.'

At age 30 Michael James Lewis (aka `Dr Mike') is a geophysicist assigned to a survey team in Cairo where Mike meets an Egyptian man named Adom who informs Mike he has a gift - a frightening ability to see the future whenever he closed his eyes - the view with his eyes closed was that of a kaleidoscope. `At first, the images were blurry and unclear. Mike wasn't sure what he was seeing.

For some people who want to jump into a fast-paced suspense or action novel with little to no understanding of the main character or what drives him, Kaleidoscope may not be the read for them. For me, however, it was wonderful.

The story of 44-year old protagonist Mike Lewis's discovery of a psychic ability he neither wants nor understands is a thought-provoking and suspense-filled psychological look into the mind of a man who has denied the existence of his visions since childhood. To his few friends, he has an enviable life with a job that pays well, allows him to fly around the world for work that he enjoys on more or less his own schedule, and as a handsome, fit man, he can pretty much have any woman he wants. Even Mike believes his life is pretty good, but he has become a creature of habit and something indefinable is missing. He has arranged his life so that he does not have to look at any of it too closely, until he meets Adom, an Egyptian who works for the same company. At a single touch by Adom, Mike's suppressed "sixth sense" kicks into overdrive and he begins seeing visions of things that come true whenever he closes his eyes, but he sees them as if he's looking at them through a kaleidoscope. Because of this, he cannot make sense out of them until after the event happens. The visions frighten him and he tries For years to ignore them, but over time the denial of his gift takes a toll on him. He can't sleep and goes to a psychiatrist friend for help. With his assistance, Mike begins to learn how to control his reaction to the visions and how to figure out what they mean.
