Book Review: Ferryman by Claire McFall

Ferryman
Author: Claire McFall
Publisher: PIRATES
Rating: 3.5/5

Paradoxical and riveting, Ferryman is a thrilling story of life and death- till love does ‘them’ apart. Written intelligently using allusion to the ferryman from the Greek and Roman Mythology, this story uses the legend of the ferryman of Hades who carries the souls of the newly deceased across the river Styx. In this story, the twist, however, is because of the love that blossoms between the passenger and the transporter. But they cannot defy the laws of nature, can they?

Dylan, the female protagonist, survives a train crash only to realize later that it is her soul that escapes death. When her soul attempts to reach back home, she meets Tristan, the ferryman, who disguises as men depending upon the soul being transported. Cupid strikes and both the protagonists fall for each other. The majority of the story is set in the wastelands where the couple fights the wraiths, understand each other and explore the possibilities of being together. What ensues is an entertaining but slow-paced love story that is quite different from contemporary romance.

I was really looking forward to reading this paranormal romance and to some extent, I did feel satisfied. However, the drab narrative in some chapters put me off. Since less action was anticipated, the narrative could have been made taut. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the chemistry between Dylan and Tristan. Often, their conversation was quite interesting.

Overall, this book will be liked by the romance fanatics who enjoy Christmas magic or fictional love stories.

Best wishes to the author!
