Editorial Reviews


"I agree with your blurb on the cover and always admire someone who can weave in so many details about unique worlds she creates without the prose feeling narration-heavy. Nice job!"  Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards

"Surrender is hands down one of my favorite fantasy books ever. YA or not, this is just pure awesomeness and every fantasy fan should read it. It's a delectable, rich in detail, numbingly brilliant and swoon-worthy read that you can't afford to miss out on." Evie at Bookish Evie

Format: Kindle Edition
The world of Surrender is described in such realistic detail; you can almost picture yourself on the lands of Avristar. In the land of Avristar, everyone is duty bound. Once reaching a certain age, everyone goes to the Great Oak to receive their parable, to find out what their future holds. Unfortunately for the lovebirds, they each have their own destinies they have to deal with, and how it will affect all of Avristar.
We meet two elvins, Kaliel and Krishani. They develop very strong feelings for one another after meeting only once. They try to ignore their feelings at first. Elvins don't fall in love. They marry the land. They each have their own abilities, but don't quite live up to their mentors expectations and are sent to the lady and lord of the land to take over their training. With both of them in the castle at the same time their feelings are stronger than ever, even after being apart for a year.
This book was a little tough for me to get into, as I'm not typically a fantasy reader. It started off slow too. But, the depth of the characters, the unique and amazing descriptions of well, everything kept me going. I was confused, and had trouble following along at some points, but in the end I was glad I kept going. The book is very well written and worth the read.
What would have been great is more back story. I understand that Kaliel is a Flame, but that's about all I know. I didn't understand what her purpose truly was, not to mention the other flames. Why was she being hunted? Likewise I didn't fully understand Krishani's purpose either other than he is the Ferryman. He follows death around. So does that make him like a grim reaper?
I truly liked this story, even though it took almost halfway in the book to truly get into it.

Right off the bat I was impressed with the land described in Surrender. Rhiannon Paille does a fantastic job with the detail and world building in Surrender. I could see the waterfall and cave at the start of the story so clearly. I knew right then that this was going to be fantasy done right. It is pretty different than most other books I have read lately. I felt like everyone in the whole book was against the love between the two main characters. At first I was a little confused about what the big deal was. But in time, the reasons are explained.

Kaliel seems so different than most of the other girls like her. That was honestly my only complaint of the book. Why was she the only "different" one? I would have liked a little bit more diversity in the characters personalities. It seemed like everyone else in the book was totally fine with doing just what was asked of them and no more. I like a little spunk in people. She was spunky but not many other people were. Which is probably why I liked Kaliel so much. She didn't just accept things the way they were. She did what she wanted and what she thought was best.

I really liked the romance in the story as well. It was pretty instant but they only met once briefly and they each made such an impact on one another it didn't bother me at all. I liked seeing their initial reactions to each other. I thought it was really cute that Krishani felt inspired to develop one of his powers when he first met Kaliel. I think they are so good for each other. There are so many complications for them though. They each have their own destiny and they don't work well for the two of them being able to be with each other.

Surrender is a great book for fantasy fans.

I'm at a loss for words... really. How do I write a review about this book without spoilers?

Kaliel and Krishani are star-crossed lovers who were meant for different paths. They were never supposed to fall in love, they were meant to fulfill destinies with meanings greater than anything they've ever imagined. Kaliel can do many things that she is not supposed to be able to do, so why not fall in love? The elven marry the land, they don't fall in love - but how can the heart be told to go against itself?

Their characters are amazingly strong and wonderfully written. I think I kind of fell in love with Kaliel and Krishani - just a little bit. Such an unforgettable story.

The character building and world building were incredible. Avristar sounds like such an amazing island to visit, with it's breathtaking scenery. The Great Oak is something that I would not want to mess with, but it's surroundings sound gorgeous. Imagine being able to touch a tree and hear it speak, or make flowers grow at it's base or be able to speak with merfolk? These are abilities that I would love to have.

It is a very unique story filled with enchanting characters, unbelievable scenery, intense magic, ruthless villains, and you are left with the overall thought of "How far would you go to save everything you ever loved?"

Looking forward to the next installment of The Ferryman and The Flame Series - I need to know what happens next!

Hey now, it's been a long time since I read something with elves. That's certainly a nice change of pace. The world of Surrender is very much epic fantasy meets dreamy fairytale. It's beautiful and descriptive and magical.

The elven peoples are very duty bound. At a certain point in their adolescence, everyone consults with the Great Oak to find out what the plan for their future is. Of course, the oak gives the prediction in suitably cryptic rhyme so the characters have to try and figure out for themselves what all of it means. These elvens don't fall in love, instead they are "married to the land" and are expected to carry out their duty with no deviation in plan.

Enter Kaliel and Krishani. They enter deep insta-love the moment they meet, and despite that single meeting, they spend the next year pining for each other. Both of them are not quite what their teachers would like them to be, but luckily the Lord and Lady of the land each offer to take over their training. Which puts them both in the castle at the same time. The time apart hadn't dulled their feelings any. Of course, there is that pesky destiny thing, so all is not smooth sailing.

The book starts of pretty slow, and it takes a while to build up to the point where it grabbed my attention. Things get a lot more interesting around chapter 20, when the alluded to destinies get... not revealed exactly, since every character except the two leads seems to have figured it out before them. Let's just say things escalate very quickly from that point.
