Ferryman

LoveReading View on Ferryman

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.

Ferryman Synopsis

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.
