When teenager Dylan emerges from the wreckage of a train crash onto a bleak Scottish hillside, she meets a strange boy who seems to be waiting for her. But Tristan is no ordinary teenage boy, and their journey across the desolate, wraith-infested wasteland is no ordinary journey. A moving, epic love story that's exciting, scary, funny, thought-provoking and truly original.

Review quote

I really enjoyed Ferryman, it was a page-turner, exciting, thought-provoking, though it did end with some unanswered questions for me, so could there be a sequel in the pipeline? Either way it's still a fantastic book, a real breath of fresh air and a book I think teens will really enjoy. * Bookapoet * 'Ferryman was happy, sad, gripping, beautiful, heart wrenching and everything in between.' -- Read and Repeat blog 'good characters, great development, compelling story, KISSING and lovely prose' * Ella Bee Reads * I loved it. Could not put it down! McFall has created great characters, a romance I loved and a landscape that is fresh. Highly reccommend! * readingawaythedays.blogspot.co.uk * 'will touch your heart and make you believe that there is more to life than what we can see. A stunning original debut from an author we will need to watch out for in the future.' * Serendipity Reviews * 'Ferryman is an addictive read which will tear your heart out and rip it to shreds, but carry on reading because this story needs to be told!' * Readaptor blog * 'Ferryman is a book that will have you hooked from the very first page, hooked to every word and storming through the book, 100% addicted.' * The Book Addicted Girl * 'I will certainly be keeping an eye out for more books by Claire McFall.' * Luna's Little Library *
