When an angel delivers a cryptic message about the Apocalypse, a series of strange events draws Jeremy closer and closer to the core of things.

Fourteen-year-old Jeremy Chikalto is the heir to the kingdom of the planet Watico, established when his people were banished from Earth many years ago. Jeremy is arrogant, rude, mean, and not very well-liked. There's also something a bit strange about him: he sees hazy patches, hears voices, and experiences blackouts. When Jeremy is sent off to boarding school on a neighboring planet, he is kidnapped along with Maren and Lyrna the fizdrust (a kind of talking cat). This sets off a chain of events ...more

Early in Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls, the main character, a teenage boy whose paranormal encounters have marked him as different, is traveling far from his home to boarding school. Sound familiar? Well, that's pretty much where any similarity between T. S. DeBrosse's debut novel and Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone ends. Oh, also, both novels came from the pens of talented individuals who write under their initials. Cajjez Jeremy Chikalto, who in the opening scene the reader witnesse ...more

If I could I'd rate the book a 2.5 but I rounded up. I'm stuck somewhere in between it was okay, and I liked it, because it WAS okay and I DID like it.

You can find more of my reviews on my blog by clicking here .

I’d like to start off by saying that I believe this is T. S. Debrosse’s debut novel and I won this novel for free at Freado (yay!).

Alright let’s see here…I have mixed feelings about this novel. Because of those feelings, I’m going to categorize my review into things I liked and the thin

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. T ...more

Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls is the strangest book I have read this year. It's probably the strangest book I've read in the past 5 years. I don't even know how to describe what it's about so I'll just let the summary speak for itself. I like odd and strange, so believe me, this is not a downer when I say this. If odd is not your thing though, it might not be for you. This book was incredibly entertaining and thought provoking, although I'm sure I have no idea what half of the stuff in it w ...more

I won this book on goodreads. Fantasy and mystery combined. There were so many twists and turns in this book, I had no idea what was going to happen as I turned each page. Very well written, great descriptions, characters were interesting and believable. I cannot wait to read the other books in the series.

For fans of young adult fantasy, T.S. DeBrosse's debut novel, Jeremy Chikalto and the Hazy Souls, delivers action, intrigue, and excitement. Braided into these fantasy elements are also great qualities of realistic YA fiction. Most compelling is the character of Jeremy Chikalto, a fourteen year old narcissist, and how he develops over the course of the novel.

We first see Jeremy admiring himself before performing on stage. While many authors are concerned with making their protagonists likeable

This book was wonderfully odd and engaging!

My Rating on a Five Star Scale: 5/5
(Multiple times while reading this, I was reminded of Labyrinth, the movie, in an awesome way...)

As I've mentioned before in my reviews, I like to touch on certain elements of books that really enhance the experience for me. I'll follow the format I've used in previous reviews.

Characters:
This was one of my favorite aspects of the book. Jeremy Chickalto is not a typical lead character. He's certainly not the easiest cha

This book was unlike anything I've ever read and I enjoyed the premise. There were so many twists and turns, I didn't know where the book was going, but then everything came together at the end. T.S. did a great job creating dynamic characters and a haunting villain. I always enjoy reading things with prophecies and angels / demons, but this book's approach was so fresh. It raises a lot of questions about Good vs. Evil and religion. I seriously want to see this book and the rest of the series ma ...more

I did not like Jeremy at all and I felt like some parts of the book were rushed while way too much time was spent in other areas. Also, this book was poorly edited. There were several glaring errors that were confusing and distracting. For instance, I think a character's name must have been changed at some point, but there were a few places where the old name was used.
