Kaleidoscopic Shades

Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity by David A. Neuman is an exciting new supernatural thriller that readers will be drawn into from the opening pages. Kaleidoscopic Shades has enough plot twists and turns to keep readers guessing and on edge. What seems to be a simple book about a small town experiencing a strange case of mass hysteria turns into something very different.

The children of Corona, California, are having nightmares. Nightmares mean none of them are sleeping, and spend the day in a haze. The weird part? They all have the same nightmare every night. The story follows Bob Triplow and his son Joshua as they attempt to stop the nightmares plaguing their friends and family. This leads them through a journey in time and space where they visit hellish dimensions, battle ancient monsters, and are brought to the very edges of sanity. In the end, Bob and Joshua will make decisions that could make or unmake the very existence of their universe and everyone in it.

The high point of Neuman’s writing is his character building. He excels at writing likable, everyday characters who are thrown into very unreal circumstances. His depiction of Joshua and his friends reminded me of Stephen King at his best. Likewise, his world-building is heavily reminiscent of King’s work, especially the Dark Tower series. This style of writing allows readers to feel like they really know the characters giving them an added investment in seeing what happens to them in the end.

Neuman’s pacing is another highlight. The book is a slow-burner but not dull. He spends plenty of time setting up the Triplow family before throwing them into hell. Sometimes mind-bending themes like alternate universes and time travel are handled excellently. If you’re a fan of supernatural thrillers you’ll be right at home. I can not recommend Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity enough. Any fan of supernatural thrillers and science fiction time travel will love it and may have found a new favorite author.
