- Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls
on May 27, 2011
"Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls" is a young adult paranormal fantasy written by T. S. DeBrosse and is the first book in The Hazy Souls series. DeBrosse paints a very unique world that is both haunting and memorable. And you'll absolutely want a pet fizdruft, an adorable talking feline that accompanies Jeremy on his journey!
Jeremy Chikalto is the Cajjez, or prince, of the distant planet Watico. He is very arrogant, proud, and paranoid and is an unusual choice for a protagonist. I was very intrigued by his character; he walks a fine line between being the "good guy" and the "bad guy."
Jeremy is visited by an angel and given a cryptic message about the impending Apocalypse. Soon after, he meets Ms. Fritz and the Intergalactic Intelligence Unit and is led astray. Through Ms. Fritz's "guidance," Jeremy goes on a journey through the Haze, the place where the dead go before they're sorted into heaven or hell, and crosses dimensions, arriving on Earth.
What ensues is an adventure with so many twists and turns, it's sure to keep you guessing. Mantel's Maze was the highlight for me, with ghosts, demons, and a furry monster named Urm!
I recommend this book for anyone looking for an interesting and unique read, who's up to the challenge of taking on a new kind of mythology. What a gem! Five stars!
