I had the privilege of beta-reading Rhiannon Paille’s Flame of Justice (Book #2 of The Ferryman and the Flame) and let me tell you – fans of Flame of Surrender are not going to be disappointed!

Krishani, having just lost the love of his life (Kaliel), embarks on a last-ditch effort to keep the other Flames out of the hands of the Valtanyana. During his journey, it becomes impossible for him to ignore what he is becoming – a Ferryman. Unless he finds a way to embrace his destiny, he will be doomed

Justice is the second book in the series and right away I was blown away by it. I have to say as the series continues Rhiannon starts to knock it out the park with her descriptions of the world and characters in it and she also supports those characters by having them experience things and over come them. Justice is very much Krishani's story. Krishani is still reeling from the loss of Kaliel buit he is determined to make sure that the Flames are kept safe.

I've been on the sidelines with Rhi for years and I have to say that she never ceases to surprise me with her ideas, her prose, and her originality. Book 2 in The Ferryman and the Flame series doesn't fail in any of these respects.

The first book in the series is the love story between Kaliel and Krishani and an introduction to a fantastical world. The second book focuses on Krishani's grief of lost love, but this book is so much more than that. He is thrown into the Lands of Men against his will

I unfortunately I didn't like this second book of the series as much as the first. I guess I was in a sappy mood and was hoping for a miraculous love story between Kashani and Kaliel which was what drew me into the first book however the glimpses into Kashani's memories and his emotions of undying love and utter despair and anger were very powerful. You get to know him better in this story and the purpose and abilities of the flames are given a little more light which is also very interesting. T ...more

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

I immediately picked up Justice after I read Surrender . Again, the world was too fascinating, and the ending of book one left me dying to know what happened next. While this book still had the some of the same technical issues I had with book one, Justice was better.

Where Surrender lacked, for me, the emotion of Kaliel and Krishani's connection, Justice was full of heart-warming (and heart-breaking) moments between the two lovebirds. I could really fe

The story continues in the second novel of author Rhiannon Paille’s Ferryman & the Flame series. I was a huge fan of the first novel Surrender. After finishing the novel, I was left with a huge cliff-hanger that left me anticipating the sequel. For those of us who have read the first novel in the fantasy series, you know that (and if you haven’t read the first novel, you probably should since there will be spoilers up ahead) Kaliel was killed near the end of the first novel during the big ba ...more

I really want to like this series. It has the makings of a really good fantasy series, and the world building is really excellent. Every time I picked up this book, I was amazed by how complex Paille's world is because I often forgot that there are so many more lands than just the few that Krishani and his companions travel to. Although each Land isn't described completely in depth (the story would be so long if they were!), Paille gives just enou

When It Rains, It Pours

Krishani has really reached that point where I'm afraid to ask, "what more can go wrong?" Because I know that even after all the strife he's been through, the mere utterance of that question will likely bring on a deluge of other problems bigger and badder than those before.

The Good

This was really a book revolving around Krishani, and I was fascinated with who he is at his lowest. He's cracking up a bit and really lost the will to go on, but pushes forward anyway. He is to

I had to read Justice after reading Surrender, book 1 of The Ferryman and The Flame series. Like Surrender, this book was amazing, with the descriptions of the lands, the people everything. Book one left me needing to know what happened to Krishani, after the loss of his love.
I enjoyed Justice much more than Surrender. It delved into more details of their emotions, their love for one another. It showed the other side of their interactions. In Justice, we follow Krishani, through his trials of

I started this one right after the first and I must say, I thought it was much, much better than Surrender. Why? I have absolutely no idea. I think it was because this one has less romance (though it is still there in dreams and flashbacks) and is darker and more based around violence and destruction—wait, that sounded wrong…um…how do I put this? It was more about the action. Yes, we’ll go with that one.

The plot:

I wish there was a "Can't Read" bookshelf.

First, I would like to say that I won this book in the "Giveaways" section of Goodreads; moreover, I would have you know that I would have NEVER placed a bid for it if the abstract had been in anyway similar to the current one. The abstract from the giveaway was intriguing and written in such a way as to lead potential victims - winners - to believe the book itself was also intriguing and well written - leastwise a reading level beyond middle elementary

I really loved continuing on the journey with Krishani. After the devastating turn of events at the end of Surrender, I was intrigued to see how it would all affect him, and if it would force him to follow his calling.

He seemed very lost, and once he travelled to the Lands of Men, things became a little more complicated with the revelation of the Vultures, and the tough decision he was faced with. When he chose to go in search of the Flames I had to wonder what his real purpose was. Was he look

Justice picks up right where Surrender ended. It's also a much darker novel than Surrender.

Krishani is completely heart-broken after the events in Surrender. He feels he has no reason to live. The people of Avristar are blaming Krishani for the attack on their lands. He still doesn't understand the terms of being the Ferryman. He only knows that he doesn't want the job.

I liked that we learned more about the Flames, and what they can do. There's still a lot I don't understand, but I'm hoping wi

Given the opportunity to read Justice before it was officially published I dove right into it. For me, this book didn't have as much of a magical feel to it like the first book, but I think that is because it isn't on Avristar. I also think it had a lot to do with the heart break that Krishani was going through in the entire book due to the loss of Kaliel in Surrender. I really like how Rhiannon was able to make me feel like I was there with Krishani and I could feel the pain he was going throug ...more

Have you ever had one of those days where you ask yourself what next, what more could possibly go wrong knowing full well you maybe asking a loaded question? Well that is how I believe Krishani feels. Everything that could go wrong for him has. He lost the love of his life and he needs and wants revenge so he journeys to the only place he maybe able to find it. Krishani's pain became my own and I found myself wanting to fight for him and to help him get his life and universe back on track. The ...more

This is the second book in The Ferryman & The Flame series. Kaliel is gone and Krishani is heartbroken and lost without her. His anger is bubbling to the surface and forcing his magical abilities to show themselves in uncontrolled ways. He never wanted to go to the Lands of Men. Mallorn is trying to help Krishani and talks him into going and they end up finding a stow-away. Pux is Kaliels best friend and has come to care for Krishani because he knew how much he loved Kaliel. Pux can't surviv ...more

So after the ending of Surrender I was obviously worried about reading Justice. What is Krishani going to do without Kaliel!? I was blown away by Justice. Rhiannon Paille's fabulous writing style and attention to detail continues in book 2 of the Ferryman and the Flame series. Most writers can't pull off a book that's missing one of the series main characters, but Rhiannon does it in her sleep while still keeping us hooked on the epic quest to save the flames. The emotions evoked in this book ar ...more

I received this book free from the author for an honest review.

I read the first book, Surrender, and struggled through it. Not because it was poorly written, b/c I don't think it was. I read this book, Justice, b/c I promised the author a review in exchange for a free copy of the book. Again, the author writes in a way that you can picture everything perfectly..,it was just too much fantasy for me. I like magic, paranormal, love stories etc but for some reason I just couldn't get into this book.
Tabby Shiflett
A fantasy novel that illustrates the emotional process of losing someone; it's interesting. This sequel is much darker than the first book in the series, but don't let that dissuade you from taking a chance on it. The author clearly spent a huge amount of time creating the lands and races, so enjoy the detail. I loved the illustrations. My only complaint: choose a different ebook version (my eyes are sore from the smallish font).

This book was very well done. Once you start reading you can't put it down. It draws you in and leaves you wanting more. The characters are easy to love and you just want to cheer them on as the story goes on.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an extremely well written novel that can transport you to another world and has characters that you fall in love with.

I couldn't get into this book at all. It was just too slow for my liking and took me almost a month to get even 14% in. Needless to say the first two books were moderately better for me but this one was just a bit dry. I will have to try again one day but right now it is just too slow for me.

Just finished reading my arc copy and I loved it!! It had the right amount of action sequences and the sexy was well done throughout the entire book ;) can't wait for the official copy to come out so I can buy it
