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.

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.

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.

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.

Supernatural Suspense

•audiobook•

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It ranked threefold higher than Delta, although not quite a 5 Star.

I don’t usually like the undertoned/•not disclosing spoiler genre• this should have been listed as. I definitely disagree with the sci fi ... it’s only in passing and off pages.
However, had a true genre been indicated, I probably wouldn’t have requested a book to review. So it’s all good!

Jaisy was a lovely heroine. At the point that it all clicked and the puzzle pieces came together, I’m just really surprised her conscience didn’t make her ponder her actions. I could certainly understand why the guardians felt and behaved how they did. She began to come to terms, yet ... she didn’t....

The roles of David, Karen, Misha, and someone else wasn’t very fleshed out and it seemed confusing. I don’t think the back stories were very well fleshed out. A good editor could quickly help this book tighten up into a best seller; it really has a lot of potential.

Overall, recommended for YA supernatural fantasy enthusiasts.

Do not go quietly into that blue night!

- Josh here

This was quite an adventure that had me hooked right from the start. I was absolutely drawn into this world and found myself experiencing some emotions towards specific characters that I wasn't expecting. By the end, I wasn't sure how to feel other than realizing I wanted to know more. What happens to Jaisy, Wordell, Antorjou (No clue if that is spelled right), and everyone else?

Jordan truly has a way of depicting a scene that leaves little to the imagination. I found myself walking right alongside Jaisy, visualizing the inside of the castle and the rest of the world, as she sees it. As mentioned before, I quickly developed a level of anger towards certain characters only to have a twist thrown in which made me re-think those emotions.

This is a story easily worthy of more than five stars and I really hope that a sequel, even if only brief, comes out to give some closure to Jaisy's goals for the world. As another reviewer stated, this story has a quality about it that is not unexpected from Jordan. I am also glad that her publishers are now putting out audiobooks so I can enjoy the stories my wife has raved about for so long.
