Title: Surrender

Series: The Ferryman + The Flame #1

By: Rhiannon Paille

Published: October 2nd, 2012 by Createspace

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.

Kaliel and Krishani are elvins, part of Avristar. They are trained to marry the land and help in the World of Men. But a chance meeting has Kaliel and Krishani pining for each other, something that they can’t do. If that was not hard enough, both have a hard time with the simple tasks that they are supposed to perform and at a select age they have to go visit the Great Oak and learn their parable for life.

Kaliel is torn with the horrible parable and her longing for Krishani. At the same time Krishani is plagued with nightmares of death and has a lot of power that he cannot control. Both are sent to the lord and lady of the land for further instruction. While there, they meet up and start spending more time together. But when war strikes and hits to close to home, both have to decide what they will do to protect the other.

I really liked this story. I started with Skeleton and Dust so I had some background on the story. I do admit that it started out slow so it was a little difficult to get into the story right away. I have to say that under normal circumstances insta-love is one thing that really bothers me. But when you find out the whole story you understand why.

Over all I think this is a great story that fantasy lovers don’t want to miss. But I want to warn you, read Skeleton and Dust before you read Surrender. You won’t be so lost.

Title: Lantern & Poison

Series: The Ferryman + The Flame #1.5

By: Rhiannon Paille

Published: December 11th, 2012

Blurb-

This is SURRENDER from the villain’s POV.

Hadwen is no more. The Daed have no choice but to travel to Avrigost to awaken Crestaos. They’re thrown into a whirlwind quest for the Flames, not knowing how ruthless and sadistic Crestaos can be.

As the excerpt says, this is Surrender from Crestaos’ point of view. This is a lot darker, more morbid version of Surrender. I liked this story a little better than Surrender just because there was no drama with Kaliel and Krishani’s relationship. It was good but this cuts right to the good parts.

I really liked this story and thing it added a lot of dimension to the series. I have to say that I’m hooked and can’t wait to read the next book, Justice.

Title: Skeleton & Dust

Series: The Ferryman + The Flame #0.5

By: Rhiannon Paille

Expected Publication: October 1st, 2013

Blurb-

In the First Era, before Kaliel and Krishani fell in love, Tor runs. He escapes the Land of Kings and the tyrannical Valtanyana. In the depths of Tempia he forges weapons– The Flames– strong enough to oppose the Kings he betrayed.

Aria, The Amethyst Flame, cannot touch the living or the dead and her kin are silent ghosts. Hidden in a cairn deep in the haunted forest, Aria becomes obsessed with the Ferryman, the only boy who can feel her touch.

Before Aria knows it, The Flames, The Ferryman and Tor are swept up in the first war against the Valtanyana.

Tor has found his soul mate on Tempia. But he knows that the Valtanyana won’t stop hunting him which means the peaceful Tempians won’t survive. Tor starts creating Flames to help fight the Valtanyana. But with an accident, he creates Aria, the Amethyst Flame. Not knowing what to do with her, he keeps her secluded.

Aria follows Tor’s instructions, but she know she is different and needs to stay hidden. When Tor tells her to call the Ferryman, she finds that she is drawn to him. But the Valtanyana are starting their attack and she has been dealt a bad card but must make use of that and her connection to the Ferryman.

I have been meaning to read the Ferryman and the Flame series for a while now. This was a great way to get into the series and help promote the book. I loved Skeleton and Dust. It was interesting to find out how Aria was created and her connection to the Ferryman. I felt for Tor and would like to know how the rest of his story plays out. Over all, I am officially hooked and can’t wait to get reading the rest of the books in the series. You have to get this book, either to start the series or to catch up on prior events.

The Magic Warble

Well, I know this is a couple days late, but I wasn’t worried about that. This was a sad giveaway. I had no one sign up so I have NO winner’s. I just feel bad for Victoria. I hated to tell her that no one signed up for the giveaway.

Sadly I have been thinking about closing down my blog. I know I don’t have a lot of followers but I do have a ton of books to review. I’m debating just shutting down the blog. It’s not like anyone really subscribes or that I have time to do a lot of posting on it any way.

I do want to keep providing reviews for authors though. I understand how important it is for honest reviews on their books will help get their names out into the world and does help influence people on what books to buy and gives an idea of if the books are good or not.

I guess we will see what happens.

The Magic Warble

I am happy to be part of a giveaway for Victoria Simcox’s book The Magic Warble. This is a wonderful story for mid-grade reading levels or kids between the ages of 9-13. Mind you, that didn’t stop me. I loved the book and can’t wait to read the second book The Black Shard.

(Excerpt from Goodreads on The Magic Warble) Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals and the evil Queen Sentiz. In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she’s honored as “the chosen one,” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s control. But it’s not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous “Magic Warble,” in its final resting place. She must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen’s “zelbocks” before she reaches her destination. Guided by her new fairy friends, Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, and an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.

Kristina doesn’t fit in with the kids at her school, usually finding herself tormented. She spends much of her time alone or with her rat, Raymond. Today is the last day of school before Christmas vacation. On the way out the door, Kristina’s teacher, Miss Hensley, gives her a Christmas present, an old hat box. On the way home, a cruel game of keep away ensues. Then Kristina learns that another unpleasant girl will be babysitting her.

After all the drama of the day, Kristina goes to be just to be woken by a humming sound. She is then transported to Bernovem. The silver ball in the hatbox is the Magic Warble, which is destined to restore the rightful king and queen to the throne. Since Kristina is the one that was selected, she is the one that has to put the warble back in its place. But this is not going to be an easy trip. Everyone that has touched the hat box will be transported to Bernovem and will have a role in the quest to put the Warble back in its place.

This is not going to be easy since the current queen is horrid and plans on staying in control one way or another. Her zelbocks are hunting Kristina down and she has no problem tricking the other kids into helping her to keep in control of Bernovem. But Kristina has help from prince Werrien and those that believe that the Magic Warble will be returned.

I really liked this story. There was action and adventure and you didn’t know what was going to happen next. I felt for Kristina not being popular and I cheered for her every step of the adventure. I didn’t like Graham, Hester, and Davina but I am curious to see if Graham will have some connection in the next book.

This is a great book that mid-grade readers and everyone else will enjoy reading. I strongly recommend getting this book.
