Series: The Ferryman and The Flame #1
By: Rhiannon Paille
How far would you go to save everything you ever loved?
Kaliel was warned about her love for the Ferryman. One day he will marry the land and leave Avristar forever. She doesn't listen, and because of what she is-- a Flame-- one of nine apocalyptic weapons, she sparks a war. In a desperate attempt to save her home and her love, Kaliel tries to awaken Avred, not knowing she may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Surrender provided a pretty epic fantasy read which I had the please listening to by audiobook. While at times, this book left me confused, it did leave me with an appreciation for the beauty of a well-crafted story.
Rhiannon Paille world is a spectacular fantasy world. It's clever, original and crafted to perfection. Sometimes, I found the details a little overwhelming - there was a lot of it - yet I appreciated the visual world she created.
This applies to her well-constructed characters too. Kaliel and Krishani were a pleasure to discover and follow. Their world was exciting as much as it was heartbreaking. The author successfully managed to make me care about her characters, so much so I was eager to discover where their stories would take them.
I listened to the audio version of this. It was an 8 hour pleasure, and I think it many ways better than reading the book to myself. One because it would have taken a darn site longer than 8 hours, but it also prevented me from getting twitchy fingers and scanning ahead - admittedly I do this when there's so much attention to detail.
An entertaining story.
