Overview

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.

Reviewed by Hilary Hawkes for Readers' Favorite In JC Whyte’s The Color of Clouds, Pedro might be dead, but nothing is dull inside the Dark Matter – the realm people enter after physical life. With the help of medium Gwen, he sets out to help newly deceased teenager, Travis, make peace with his father. First Pedro manipulates things so that Gwen, her sister Jo, Paul the physicist and his wife Deanna (Travis's parents), and Ernst and his friend Sylvie are all on the same cruise ship travelling from Sydney to San Diego. A strange light (the result of an accidental antimatter explosion) passes through the ship and engulfs the spirits of Ernst and Sylvie, leaving their physical bodies behind in comas. Now inside the Dark Matter with Pedro, Ernst and Sylvie learn that this is where the dead go – an invisible energy dimension where life on Earth can be observed and people’s thoughts can be seen as different color clouds. They uncover some disturbing truths when a murder occurs on board the cruise ship. Communicating via Pedro and Gwen, they manage to persuade Paul, the ever logical scientist, that the physics theory of Dark Matter is compatible with what they are experiencing. As if being caught up in the drama of being falsely accused of murder isn't enough, Paul and his companions lives are then endangered when an earthquake and terrifying tsunami hit. The Color of Clouds is a well-written and entertaining story with humour, adventure and intrigue. Whyte’s writing style has a wonderful energy that pulls the reader right into the story line. The characters are well defined, likeable, and it is easy to identify with their lives and motives. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot and nothing is completely given away until the last part of the story. The author describes the impact and horror of the tsunami realistically. I love the convincing way physicist Paul finds that his scientific theories about Dark Matter are compatible with paranormal beliefs – making this a story of possibilities too.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite The Color of Clouds is contemporary paranormal fiction written by J.C. Whyte. Pedro is a spirit guide who communicates through a New Zealand psychic named Gwen. His function is not to perform parlor tricks or reveal secrets about the world beyond, but rather to help bring some measure of solace to the grieving survivors of loss. His newest project involves a young boy who is so obviously troubled by the manner of his passing. The real problem is, that sad boy reminds Pedro of himself during his wild younger days, and the intensity of the grief and guilt left behind by the boy's passing compels Pedro to get more involved in the world of the living than he's ever been since his departure from that sphere. Gwen and her sister Jo are passengers aboard the Viking Maiden cruise ship, which is setting out from Sydney, Australia with San Diego as its destination. The two sisters have chosen a fixed seating plan. Their table mates include Paul, a physicist and his wife, Deanna, and an elderly couple, Ernst and Sylvie. J.C. Whyte's contemporary paranormal fiction novel, The Color of Clouds, blends physics, dark matter and the paranormal in an entertaining and fast-paced suspense story. Pedro, as the narrator, is engaging and sympathetic to the suspicions and outright disbelief he encounters from Paul, and his limitations are put to the test as he is unable to be more proactive in dealing with the urgent human affairs he encounters. I especially liked the strong science fiction element of the plot, starting with the strange white light that travels across the ocean and is encountered by a diving couple as they perform an ecological survey. I loved how the author incorporated dark matter and quantum physics into the story as well. There's also a tasty murder mystery that occurs aboard the Viking Maiden which should please fans of police procedurals as much as it did me. The Color of Clouds has something for just about everyone, and the paranormal theme works marvelously. It's highly recommended.

Reviewed by Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite In The Color of Clouds by J.C. Whyte, a group of strangers was set to enjoy their cruise on the Pacific aboard the Viking Maiden. In this group was an elderly bubbly couple looking forward to a special celebration on the night of crossing the International Date Line. However, fate and science had other plans. As the celebrations were just getting under way, something strange happened. A psychic on the ship with a message from beyond had warned of looming danger and, on this special night, her fears came true - delivered by a mysterious bright light that left the elderly couple in an inexplicable coma with the nearest hospital five days away. An unconscious couple with their souls stuck between two spheres, a skeptical physicist, a psychic, and a spirit guide from beyond all on one ship; a perfect setting for a captivating mystery. However, their troubles are only just beginning as the mystery continues to unfold. The Color of Clouds by J.C. Whyte is a deeply compelling mystery about the collision of two worlds as the great beyond crosses into the world of the living, and a psychic and a physicist are left with no choice but to work together to solve the mystery of a lifetime and save lives. J.C. Whyte developed the story into a gripping read by gradually building the intrigue more and more as the mystery deepened, and this kept me completely engrossed to the very end. The story dissects deeply each character's persona and beliefs, revealing what makes them all so different and at the same time so alike. With a subtly humorous writing style, J.C. Whyte managed to turn what would have been a hard theme into a light and thrilling read. I enjoyed every single page.

An interesting story of paranormal adventure where a cruise ship encounters a strange phenomenon. The characters are both interesting and fun, and the story offers provocative ideas that even a die-hard scientist like myself can enjoy. With the discovery of dark matter, the universe may truly be more than we know!
