Paperback Princess Review

Surrender by Rhiannon Paille, the first book in The Ferryman & The Flame Series was absolutely amazing! The world creation was fantastic, the characters were unique and likeable and the story was really dimensional. It was not an easy read, you must be paying a great amount of attention as Paille created her own vocabulary, but I loved the world that she created. Rhiannon Paille took readers into a journey of her world, and I love that! 

Kaliel, The Flame, and Krishani, The Ferryman are both destined to marry the lands. They both have a pre-destined position to fill and they have no choice in the matter. In their world, love is not as important as their positions, they fill a greater purpose in life. So when they first met and was instantly infatuated with each other, most can draw the conclusions that this love affair would not turn out well.

I cannot even fathom how I will word this review. There are so many fantastic, memorable and magical moments through the book and I love the book for so many reasons that I just don't know where to begin! Even if I do begin, there are no amount of words that can describe the beauty of Paille's words and the magical creation of her world. Rhiannon's writing was absolutely amazing, descriptive, poetic and just beautiful. 

Rhiannon also takes her Readers in a journey, exploring the world that she created. The world creation is magical, distinctive and creative. I'm impressed with all the details and concept that she came up with. I am even more amazed at how well she put everything together, the poetical words, the magical world and the beautiful despite conflicted characters into one beautiful story. 

I did have two complaints and one being the instant-love that plagues many Young Adult novels recently and lastly, there were parts of the book, most especially towards the beginning that felt was unnecessary and slightly dragged out. Whilst I did love the in-depth description through the book, there were some parts that I felt did not need as much attention as other parts, alas, that's my thoughts and Paille may have had a reason behind it. 

Surrender by Rhiannon Paille is absolutely amazing and I love the journey that Paille took me through. The world that she thrusts her Readers into it, from the very first page is one that many will love. Each page was an exciting read and the cliffhanging ending will have you wanting more. 

Loved It ~ A Must Read!!!
