Publisher's Summary

Volcanic ash has ruined the world and only remote outposts remain. At the castle in the mountains, covered by snow, everyone only sees shades of blue.

Except for Jaisy.

By day, she explores farther down the mountain. By night, she’s plagued with dreams of a panther and ghosts calling her name.

When Jaisy’s job sends her into the dungeon, she discovers a hidden room filled with dangerous information. There are secrets within the damp, stone walls that those in control don’t want anyone to know.

The leaders will kill to protect those secrets - even executing one of their own.

Jaisy will not go quietly into the blue night, no matter how hard the leaders attempt to silence her.

Castle of Awesomeness!!!

Jaisy lives in a world ruined by volcanic ash. She lives in a remote outpost in a mountain covered with snow that is seen as blue. Jaisy uncovers a secret in the dungeon that others will kill for to keep secret. From the very first chapter, I was hooked. The story is entertaining, interesting and well paced with some unexpected twists and turns. Jordan’s imagination is mind-blowing and completely mesmerizing. I saw myself visualizing and feeling everything I heard given by the amazing depictions from Jordan’s words. The story fits the young adult fantasy genre perfectly. Jennifer narrated well. Her voice was pleasant and I felt it went really well with the character I was picturing in the story. Overall, the fit of the story and the narrator were brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more from both the author and narrator. Please let us know if there will be a sequel, I am so intrigued with the ending and need need need more!! Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

A story full us mystery, suspense, and action

What a cool story! The element of what is real and what is not really pulled me in. The story starts off with a dream, or is it a vision? Jaisy is a survivor from the volcano disaster that destroyed the world. The ash took her memories. Or so she is told. She tries to fall in line and do what she's told but there are parts of her life that don't make sense. And she is having visions that plague her. And why does she have fangs and have the urge to kill? As the pieces come together us readers/listeners go on this journey with her. And when the truth is exposed your mind will be blown. And get ready to meet a group of villains that will make you want to reach into this story and slap them yourselves. This is a great adventure story filled with mystery and suspense. You'll fall in love with Jaisy and her crew of allies. Get ready to have this story hit the heart. I loved it. I really hope this is made into a sequel. I don't feel like we are done with Jaisy's story yet. This narrator is the perfect voice of Jaisy. She portrays her as I would think she would be. This is a must read/listen.

what is real and what is not

this story starts off a little slow to get into , but it is a great story, glad i didnt give up on it, great story over all and it lets us come into a world of people that have taken control of a group of people because of hate, and the lies that they will kill to keep from coming out, what will happen when the secrets come out ,

Immersive

Jaisy’s world is full of ash. The most color that she, or anyone, can see is blue. There is supposedly nothing beyond that besides death. Jaisy isn’t convinced though. She’s determined to get to the bottom of the truth though what she finds might make her wish for her old peaceful existence. As with most of Miss Elizabeth’s works, the story is immersive and creative. This was a blend of genres, not quite sci-fi, though I’m not sure exactly what label would work best. Paranormal perhaps? Maybe horror. Jaisy was a strong MC though she did have a few questionable moments. I liked her though. No matter what, she kept her head up. Even when things were bleak. I wish a few of the background characters would’ve been a little more fleshed out. All in all, this is one of those stories that you can binge in one sitting and fully enjoy. Narration was smooth and easy to listen to. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Mind, blown!

This was such a good book! I've literally already recommended this book to two people! I had a friend tell me to try this author, when I was in a slump, and even bought me this audio book, so I would try her. He said his wife loves her books, and I know she has good taste. It was sort of dystopian, sort of paranormal, and ALL action and plot. So so so good!

A great story

This was my first time listening to Jordan Elizabeth and was very impressed with the author's imagination. It was cleverly written. Her work is creative and original. Both plot and character development were excellent. Jennifer Bloom has a strong but smooth voice. It was very easy to listen to her. She did a wonderful job narrating this book and brought the characters to life. Overall, I enjoyed the Castle of Blue Stones and recommend it. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good story

I liked this story but it is not a multi tasking story. I like to do things while listening and found myself having to just listen to the story. This can be seen as a good thing or bad depending on your personality. In some places it felt slow but picked back up.It was worth the listen. I was given a copy of this audiobook free for the purpose of review.

Intriguing.

This is a very intriguing story with almost a mystery vibe about it as you try to figure out exactly what is going on with all the different moving parts of the story. However that can also be distracting in that at least for me I occasionally had difficulty keeping everything that was going on straight in my head. Overall it was an enjoyable book and I do want to know if there's a sequel or anything else set in the world but this isn't a book you can listen to while doing other things very easily. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.
