The isolated town of Beldon, Wisconsin, is shocked when a high school freshman’s body is found in Lake Algonquin. Just like everyone in the community, 16-year-old Daniel Byers believes that Emily Jackson’s death was accidental. But at her funeral, when he has a terrifying vision of her, his world begins to rip apart at the seams. Convinced that Emily’s appearance was more than just a mere hallucination, Daniel begins to look carefully into her death, even as he increasingly loses the ability to distinguish fantasy from reality.

Publisher's Summary

The isolated town of Beldon, Wisconsin, is shocked when a high school freshman’s body is found in Lake Algonquin. Just like everyone in the community, 16-year-old Daniel Byers believes that Emily Jackson’s death was accidental. But at her funeral, when he has a terrifying vision of her, his world begins to rip apart at the seams.

Convinced that Emily’s appearance was more than just a mere hallucination, Daniel begins to look carefully into her death, even as he increasingly loses the ability to distinguish fantasy from reality.

What’s real? What’s not? Where does reality end and madness begin?

As Daniel struggles to find the truth, his world begins to crumble around him as he slips further and further into his own private blurred reality.

Full of mind-bending twists and turns, Blur launches a new trilogy of young adult thrillers from Steven James, a master of suspense.

    "Superb mystery+great narration=fantastic audiobook"

    I'm not one for paranormal and or ghost storyline, so was a bit skeptical about this audiobook. But the unique perspective was intriguing without being dark. I really enjoyed this excellent mystery and the multiple suspects, and didn't have it figured out until the very end!

    "SUSPENCE"

    I don't usually listen to YA books but the reviews were so good and it was a Daily Bonus so I gave it a listen. I wasn't disappointed and I will probably buy FURY, the next book in the series. Worth a listen.

    "Great story"

    I couldn't stop listening to this book. It was a really cool change from my typical young adult, female lead characters. I wasn't so easy to guess who'd done it and I liked that.

    "Great book"

    Loved the story and narrator was also great. Kind of reminded me of a modern day Hardy Boys!

    "Reaaally good."

    really great story and the audio was thankfully well paced and great voice imitations, so you know who is talking.
    Crazy to think the events of this story all happened in only two short weeks. Definitely buying next book.

    Story
    "Okay, Predictable"

    It's nice to listen to. However it is not that complex and if youve read or watched your fair share of suspense or mystery, even with the supernatural twist here, then the book is a basic whodunit. If you are older than 13 the twists aren't surprising, and the reveal at the end is kind of lackluster because [SPOILER] its just some random old guy. [END] Very basic mystery novel. The reveal while not who youd expect, is not very thrilling.

    Listen to it if youre bored, it's decent but there are better. The supernatural twist is cool, but could have been explored a bit more. In addition sometimes the characters actions made little sense, even for teenagers. It seemed the writer did not know how to the move the plot along and so forced it along.

    There are still some good twists here, so listen if you want :)
