A Piece of Passion from the Editor, Helen Boyle.
We're extremely excited to be publishing Claire McFall's debut novel Ferryman on the Templar Fiction list. For me it's a book that has it all: a brooding love story beautifully written, a perilous journey that will keep you awake at night and, in Tristan, a hero who's as wild as Heathcliff, as aloof as Mr Darcy and as desirable as Edward. I was drawn into Dylan's story from the very first chapter. Claire's writing is fresh and modern, she's a brilliant storyteller and her characters read like real teenagers. Ferryman is exciting, scary, funny, thought-provoking and original, and Claire McFall is a debut author with a very bright future ahead of her.
I hope you love Ferryman as much as I do.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Ferryman a small number of teenagers were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'probably one of the best Young Adult romance books I have ever read.'.... Scroll down to read more reviews...
Ferryman by Claire McFall
Ferryman by Scottish newcomer and teacher Claire McFall is an epic love story and adventure like no other. It combines the compulsive horror of The Hunger Games with a love story against the odds to rival Twilight. When teenage girl Dylan leaves her Scottish home to visit an estranged father she hardly knows, she is involved in a train crash. Emerging onto a remote hillside, she is met by a strange but handsome teenage boy called Tristan. He is her ‘ferryman,’ sent to accompany her across the wasteland, the divide between life and the after-life. So begins a journey where Dylan will learn about herself and what she is capable of; an epic love story against the odds and a personal odyssey, in a dark world haunted by ‘wraiths’ – the howling demons sent to suck souls down to the depths and final, eternal death.
