SPYGLASS takes up where KALEIDOSCOPE left off. A bit of a recap: Mike Lewis, a geophysicist who while assigned to a survey team in Cairo met an Egyptian man named Adom who informed Mike he had 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 - but what he had seen through the kaleidoscope had actually happened. Now Mike sees clear visions of the future through a spyglass. The once broken and distorted ability has mended. But now Mike is a new identity: `If anyone had told him that he'd lose his home, identity and that so much chaos and death would happen after revealing the kaleidoscope secret to someone, he wouldn't have believed them. How could he possibly believe something that bizarre?' As Mike accepts his new ability the spyglass provides visions of potential occurrences in a future that seems to suggest a life complete with a family. It is the overture to dreams and he must overcome dangerous hardships to realize them. With his new identity he struggles to realize the dreams set before him through his spyglass. Having discovered the secrets behind his introduction to his new identity he must now realize that the best he can do is learn how to protect himself, stand and fight as long as he can, and struggle to realize his dream and the woman and life for which he longs. The story ends in a rather treacherous situation - a perfect setup for Book 3! `"You cheated , Mike Lewis, and you know you did. You cheated me, you cheated the company and you cheated death. But, you won't be able to cheat your way out of this one, Mike. It's finally caught up with you and you're locked away from the life you wanted. You'll die in this horrible place wishing the company had you rather than the Mexicans. It was always your greatest fear and now it's come to you!" Take a breath and wait to see what happens next!
Walker adroitly takes this fantastical image and turns it into a harrowing suspense novel. This is a fine blend of the esoteric/supernatural with the character elements of friendship, camaraderie, and love that makes the story rich indeed. Grady Harp, June 14
This is a very compelling and interesting thriller, with a fairly unique premise, as far as Mike’s ability to see the future. I really like the idea of the ability first materializing as broken and disjointed images, like if you were looking through a kaleidoscope, but after accepting his ability, he gets a kind of clarity, and the visions become much clearer. I really enjoyed reading Mike’s progression working through and past these issues, and ultimately coming to grips with the situation, and accepting his lot in life. There was very good character development for the main character, and considering this is a fairly long series, some kind of character growth is a good thing.
Overall, I very much enjoyed this book, and will definitely be checking out the other Vision Chronicles books in the future.
But Mike ALREADY KNEW that I was going to do that, didn’t he!?
This book was awesome. I was glued to my seat the entire time. I can’t wait to read the next book. I even want to go back and read the first one. I loved the way Walker explained Mike’s ability. How Mike broke his ability.
