Book Feature: FLAME OF SURRENDER by Rhiannon Paille

Flame of Surrender
by Rhiannon Paille
Release Date: November 1, 2011

The boy who follows death meets the girl who could cause the apocalypse.

Krishani thinks he’s doomed until he meets Kaliel, the one girl on the island of Avristar who isn’t afraid of him. She’s unlike the other girls, she swims with merfolk, talks to trees and blooms flowers with her touch. What he doesn’t know is that she’s a flame, one of nine individually hand crafted weapons, hidden in the body of a seemingly harmless girl.

Nobody has fallen in love with a flame until now. She becomes Krishani’s refuge from the dreams of death and the weather abilities he can’t control. Striking down thousand year old trees with lightning isn’t something he tries to do, it just happens. When the Ferryman dies, Krishani knows that he’s the next and that a lifetime of following death is his destiny.

And Kaliel can’t come with him. The Valtanyana are hunting the flames, the safest place for her is Avristar. Krishani can’t bear to leave her, and one innocent mistake grants the Valtanyana access to their mystical island. They’re coming for Kaliel, and they won’t stop until every last living creature on Avristar is dead. She has to choose, hide, face them, or awaken the flame and potentially destroy herself.


The creepy witches

            Kaliel’s breath caught in her throat as the whispers formed into words. Fear pricked at her insides as she tried to pull herself away from the door. 

            And then it swung open. 

            Kaliel stood frozen as she took in the three women inside. They all had long hair, black, brown and blonde. The blonde one was wearing a blue dress, the one with black hair had a black dress, and the one with brown hair had a white dress. There were strings and strings of beads hanging from their necks, and each one of them had wrinkles surrounding their eyes. They turned to stare at her, their sharp eyes digging into her. 

            “Look at what we have here,” the one in black said. 

            “A trespasser,” the one in blue replied.

            Kaliel took a step away from the door. “I,” she stuttered. 

            “Don’t be rude, standing in doorways. Come in,” the one in black sneered. Kaliel felt her feet move without her permission as she entered the room. The door shut behind her and she felt claustrophobic. She ran her hands along the folds of her dress, trying to calm her nerves. 

            “Are you sure you want to play this game?” the one in blue said as she stared at the girl’s youthful features. 

            “What game?” Kaliel asked. 

            She smiled. “None of your concern, child.”
