{Book Review} Surrender by Rhiannon Paille

Surrender by Rhiannon Paille Paperback, 402 pages Published October 2nd 2012 by CreateSpace  Age Group: YA Source: ecopy from Netgalley Series: The Ferryman and the Flame #1 Summary:  How far would you go to save everything you ever loved? Kaliel was warned about her love for the Ferryman.

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. Right off the bat I was impressed with the land described in Surrender. Rhiannon Paille does a fantastic job with the detail and world building in Surrender. I could see the waterfall and cave at the start of the story so clearly. I knew right then that this was going to be fantasy done right. It is pretty different than most other books I have read lately…. Read more »
