I’m sorry that I can only give this book 4 stars. The concept and storyline are entertaining but could use a little tweaking. I know that it is a young adult novel but there are a few confusing ideas. For instance, the main characters find an abandoned ski lodge-no food no electricity, but the phone works, and a snowmobile has a full tank of gas and working battery. Lots of little things like this. I also got really confused about the main character’s age in the beginning. But if you can ignore some of this, it’s a good story.
The story starts out with a young lady tramping through the snow. She has been told it is supposed to be white but all she sees is shades of grey, black and blue. The guardians have told them they live in the castle of blue stones because a volcano erupted, destroyed their world and the ash distorts the colors. They are the only survivors. But Jaisy can’t stand to stay indoors. Everyday she goes out in the freezing temperatures and walks. She marks her trail and tries to go a little further each time. Perhaps, she will find other survivors. They can’t be the only ones left.
Life is tough and the rules strict. Her nightmares are getting more vivid and feel more like memories. But that can’t be true, can it? After all, she’s been told she has lived here since she was two even though she has no memory of it. When she meets another girl who can see colors, she starts to believe that perhaps her dreams are returning memories. The ending is a twist I didn’t see coming and left me with the feeling that maybe the wrong people won.
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.
Jaisy is living in a world where volcanic ash and the shades of blue is all anyone is supposed to see. They are lead to believe that leaving this place means death. But Jaisy is restless, she sees something more and fears that they might not know the whole truth. She plans to uncover the mysteries of this place and finally be free of the shackles she feels around herself. However, what the truth entails is anyone's guess. Is it even worth looking for and is better for her to accept her peaceful existence in this world and keep on going as she always has?
Jaisy is about to find out how deceptive her world is and how much past can haunt you. I think this book is riveting. Jaisy's story of self-discovery had me intrigued right from the beginning and I enjoyed reading every single minute of it. This book is perfection and I recommend it to all my fellow readers. Pick it up, you won't regret it. In my opinion, it is a must read.
