Publisher's Summary

"Wonderful characters, unique setting, and an engaging romance set against the backdrop of ancient magic. I can't wait to see what L. Penelope will do next." (Ilona Andrews, number one New York Times best-selling author)

L. Penelope's Song of Blood & Stone is a treacherous, thrilling, epic audiobook fantasy about an outcast drawn into a war between two powerful rulers.  

Orphaned and alone, Jasminda lives in a land where cold whispers of invasion and war linger on the wind. Jasminda herself is an outcast in her homeland of Elsira, where her gift of Earthsong is feared. When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive - an injured spy who threatens to steal her heart. 

Jack's mission behind enemy lines to prove that the Mantle between Elsira and Lagrimar is about to fall nearly cost him his life, but he is saved by the healing Song of a mysterious young woman. Now he must do whatever it takes to save Elsira and its people from the True Father, and he needs Jasminda's Earthsong to do it. They escape their vicious captors and together embark on a perilous journey to save Elsira and to uncover the secrets of The Queen Who Sleeps. 

Thrust into a hostile society, Jasminda and Jack must rely on one another even as secrets jeopardize their bond. As an ancient evil gains power, Jasminda races to unlock a mystery that promises salvation. The fates of two nations hang in the balance as Jasminda and Jack must choose between love and duty to fulfill their destinies and end the war.

This is an ABRIDGED version.

This is an abridged version. Ella' storyline had been cut. It is also shorter than the typical time to read of 10 hours and 28 minutes.

Solid story, audio doesn't match the book

This is an engaging story once it got going and the voice performance is good, but the audio doesn't match the story AT ALL. Different chapters, with the audio broken into more? Then it skips whole chunks of the story. I had to go back and read the parts about Ella's. So it doesn't synch with the book and I can't switch back and forth. Not sure what went wrong in the editing/upload.

Wow

I just loved the story between Jasmina and Jack, the connection between them from the beginning and the fight that Jasmina has is everything!!!!! I hope there is a part 2.

I was skeptical but it did not disappoint!

At first I thought I wouldn’t like this book because the hero is so young, but she is mature for her age. I usually struggle to get into fantasy world beyond HP and LOTR so I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging this was! So well written and beautifully narrated.

This book captured my attention

At times i found myself having to go back to other chapters understanding what was going on. But overall the story line is magnificent. I just wish the other books were available on audible.

What era is this.

The book is all over the place with the plot and the timeline. The author makes you feel as though the characters are sometimes living the 1900s way of life then, suddenly, there are random mentions of current tech, aka a four wheeler. It flips back and forth constantly between what tech they use and where the plot is headed. It fells like two books written into one and makes it difficult to focus.

Fantasy worth reading

It started a little slow, but it may have taken me a while to get used to the voice of the reader. But once it picked up, I was hooked and by the end of it, immediately ordered the sequel. I'm a fan of Sanderson, Goodkind, and Robert Jordan. This series has the potential to join those ranks.

Decent Book

This book definitely fell into some cliches and stereotypes. But was still a decent read (listen?). Ending felt a bit rushed and I don't 100% love the boom but like I said still a good read.

“Hidden Treasure!”

For months, I’ve been looking for a good book to read that didn’t have sex in the third chapter. Thank you L. Penelope for this amazing story. I’ve already downloaded the second book to this series and can’t wait to get started. The narrator was also amazing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good concept, plodding narrative

The story idea is interesting, however the execution led to a clunky narrative with a lot of telling and not enough showing. There were some really tedious passages which did little to push the action along. Could have done with a more engaging narrator. The narration was so monotone, so slow, the narrator sounded like she was desperately trying to stay awake. I am intrigued enough by the story to hang in there for book 2, but I'll probably go for a hard copy instead of audio as the narrator will send me to sleep.

fantastic

This book is fantastic. Epic fantasy that reminds in places of Robin Hobb. Fighting against oppression and romance. Would recommend if you don't want your teen learning the mechanics of sex from clan of the cave bear
