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.

My Review

5/5 Stars

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.

Published by Author Kayla Krantz

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
