“I was stuck. Stuck in an endless dream, watching a terrible future I was powerless to change.

Or was I? What if I could change the future? Could I ignore that kind of power?

And if I did--what would I become?"

Caleb Swift knows he's a complicated guy. He sees the unseeable: winged beings that haunt both his dreams and his waking visions. He knows the unknowable: horrifying

Caleb Swift is special, he has the ability to see the future, but he is not sure why. Also, he is able to see winged beings, one of whom befriended him as a child. When he meets Darla at University, things begin to get even more out of this world and Caleb must decide whether to ignore his abilities or use them to protect the world and those he loves.

At first I was thrown for a loop with this book and I was not quite sure why, but then I realized it was because it is written in first

The book really draws you in when it goes into the fantasy elements a bit more. In the book there are two races of angel-like beings, some essentially good in nature others essentially bad, that Caleb thinks only he can see and when these enter the story it really picks up momentum and comes alive. The only minor criticism I would have is when it switches back to the more everyday/friendship parts of the story it loses a bit of that momentum. So maybe a more seamless blend of both in future ins ...more

I fell in love with Caleb Swift from the first pages of The Channeler. His character is so relatable and the beautiful imagery used by the author really brings him and the story to life. The whole concept was unique and intriguing, keeping you interested in what other wrinkles will come to light with each chapter. It’s a great novel for a teen, but I’d gladly recommend it to anyone. Get ready to be surprised and pre-order book 2 and 3!

Twenty-one year-old Caleb Swift knows he’s different. He’s been visited by what appears to be a winged angel named Gabriel since he was a little boy. He’s also suffered from painful, horrifying, visions and there’s no one to help him understand why, until he meets Darla and everything begins to change.

This YA fantasy is a unique, compelling story that doesn’t rely on mindless action scenes to fill the pages but rather a careful unfolding of the angst and emotional isolation of someone who believ

The Channeler is a book that starts surprisingly slow and takes its time in grabbing the reader. Unlike other books in its genre, there's no full adventure with a beginning, middle and end in this first installment in the series; the action is kept almost entirely to the final chapters, while most of the book focuses on a very relatable and likable protagonist, real human drama and fascinating but subtle world-building.

The basic premise should be familiar to everyone from young adult protagonis

A nice start to a new series.

This book was slow to action but had some wonderful character and world building that made up for it. I found the whole premise different yet I love the whole connection that I could relate to. I really liked Caleb. It is a story that draws you in. I enjoyed reading it but I wanted more, so will definitely be on the lookout for the next book in this series.

I volunteered to read an ARC and this is my honest opinion.
Here is the link to the book:

Really 2.5 stars. It's not that's it's poorly written it's just a lot of other things. Full review to come soon.

I was intrigued by the blurb and the issue Caleb was facing: what would you do if you could look into the future? Would you act and try to change the future and prevent horrible things from happening? Or don't you want to interfere with the universe out of fear for repercussions? Or what if you are wrong?
Caleb has been seeing future events for as long as he can remember. And he also has a friend, with wings. So, he is not exactly ordinary. But he desperately wants to be normal. But when he sudde
