Skeleton & Dust (The Ferryman & The Flame #3.5)
Author: Rhiannon Paille

Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: October 1, 2013


In the First Era, before Kaliel and Krishani fell in love, Tor runs. He escapes the Land of Kings and the tyrannical Valtanyana. In the depths of Tempia he forges weapons-- The Flames-- strong enough to oppose the Kings he betrayed.

Aria, The Amethyst Flame, cannot touch the living or the dead and her kin are silent ghosts. Hidden in a cairn deep in the haunted forest, Aria becomes obsessed with the Ferryman, the only boy who can feel her touch.

Before Aria knows it, The Flames, The Ferryman and Tor are swept up in the first war against the Valtanyana.

Skeleton & Dust is a novella in the addicting fantasy series The Ferryman and The Flame. In this short story, we follow Aria - the Amethyst Flame - as she hides out in the forest and becomes increasingly obsessed with the Ferryman - the only person who can feel her touch. While this is happening, Tor has run from the Land of Kings and the Valtanyana. He finds his way into Tempia, where he makes The Flames - weapons strong enough to take down the Kings that he fled. Soon Aria, the Ferryman, Tor, and the Flames will all be caught up in the first war against the Vatanyana.

This is a high fantasy series that keeps getting better with each installment. The world building is fantastic with vivid imagery and detailed descriptions that have the reader easily sliding into the world the author created. The characters continue to be well formed with their own strengths, flaws, fears, and desires. I loved getting to know Aria and the Ferryman, along with the story behind Tor and the forging of The Flames. Although this was just a novella, it brought a great deal into focus from the rest of the series and gives the reader an added depth to the story line and the characters. The book was fast paced and flowed effortlessly - I easily was swept away in its pages and finished it in one sitting. Highly recommended for fans of the series as well as for fans of fantasy fiction.
