Author: J.C. Whyte

Genre: Paranormal Thriller / Mystery

Rating: B+

Pedro’s on a mission. But not your everyday, run-of-the-mill type mission. Because Pedro is dead.

That’s right. Dead.

Spirit guide Pedro normally busies himself with conveying messages from departed loved ones through a psychic named Gwen. But when he encounters a recently deceased teenager, the boy’s anguish just about breaks Pedro’s heart. So the spirit guide decides to try and help this boy. Yet meddling in the affairs of the living is a troublesome business, as Pedro soon discovers.

Nevertheless, he convinces Gwen to take an ocean voyage, and that’s when the trouble begins. Within days of leaving port, two passengers on the cruise ship fall into a mysterious coma. Gwen seeks Pedro’s help to restore these passengers, but natural as well as unnatural obstacles keep getting in the way. And by the time the ship docks in Honolulu, the still-living are flat out scrambling for their lives!

A playful blend of science fiction and the paranormal, The Color of Clouds offers a glimpse into the unseen world while taking the reader on an extraordinary ride. The adventure includes danger, mystery, humor, sweet romance and even a dash of thriller.

But the clouds are not what you think.

Whatever you say about Color of Clouds, you can’t say the book isn’t unique. Pedro is a spirit guide who gives out messages through a psychic medium named Gwen. But when he finds a recently deceased boy, he wants to help him, and convinces Gwen to take a cruise on the ocean. But the moment Gwen steps aboard the ship, things start going haywire, and not even Pedro’s powers might be enough to help her.

This is an original, interesting read with engaging characters. I loved the ending, and the start. The middle part was a little over the place now and then, but it didn’t diminish  my overall reading experience. I’d recommend this to fans of paranormal/thrillers, who want something new and fresh.
