Bloom the weed of temptation and expire the great garden of life. Bloom the flower of sacrifice and sustain the great garden in strife.

The boy who follows death meets the girl who could cause the apocalypse.

Krishani thinks he’s doomed until he meets Kaliel, the one girl on the island of Avristar who isn’t afraid of him. She’s unlike the other girls, she swims with merfolk, talks to trees and blooms flowers with her touch. What he doesn’t know is that she’s a flame, one of nine individually hand crafted weapons, hidden in the body of a seemingly harmless girl.

Nobody has fallen in love with a flame until now. She becomes Krishani’s refuge from the dreams of death and the weather abilities he can’t control. Striking down thousand-year-old trees with lightning isn’t something he tries to do, it just happens. When the Ferryman dies, Krishani knows he’s the next and a lifetime of following death is his destiny.

And Kaliel can’t come with him. The Valtanyana are hunting the flames, the safest place for her is Avristar. Krishani can’t bear to leave her, and one innocent mistake grants the Valtanyana access to their mystical island. They’re coming for Kaliel, and they won’t stop until every last living creature on Avristar is dead. She has to choose--hide, face them, or awaken the flame and potentially destroy herself.

My Thoughts
Rhiannon Paille’s writing was very imaginative and you could tell she put a lot of work into it. The flow of the words helped to draw me into the story.
Krishani was my favorite character and I thought it was interesting that his power was enhanced when he was with Kaliel.  He was a very sweet character and I really felt bad that he had really horrible luck throughout the whole book. Reading about his journey with Kaliel and their relationship with each other was really heartwarming. I loved how dedicated they were to each other.
Check out this imaginative new tale from the author Rhiannon Paille “Flame of Surrender (The Ferryman and the Flame #1)”.


  1. Hello! That quote has such cryptic lines - I think I have to read it one more time to understand it. Flame of Surrender sounds like a poetic book.
