The Ferryman + the Flame Tour! A Review of Surrender, Book 1, by Rhiannon Paille!

Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
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.

My Review:
Surrender is book one in The Ferryman + the Flame series by Rhiannon Paille. I have heard such wonderful things about this book, so I was super excited to get my hands on it for this tour! I loved the setting with all the elvins, and mer people, and magic. It felt mystical and real at the same time. It wasn't hard to imagine the story playing out within the pages of this book, because it was so meticulously detailed. This played a part in the pacing of this story as well, as it was very slow and at times, I had a hard time staying focused. I enjoyed the characters and the mysteries behind each and every one of them, even those who weren't main characters had their own quirks and secrets. I have many "Why?" questions that I hoped would have been answered within this book. Why was the love between Kaliel and Krishani such a big deal? At first I thought love was forbidden, but that wasn't the case. Also, it seemed to me that the "Foe" was going to wreak havoc whether they were in love or not. So, what did it matter? Maybe I missed something. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for answers in the upcoming books. There is a wonderful and tragic story within the pages of Surrender, and their story has just begun. I feel like we are in for quite an adventure in the upcoming installments of The Ferryman + the Flame and I'm both scared for these characters, and looking forward to it at the same time.
