Young Adult Fiction 226
Greek Mythology Retelling
Overall rating
Writing Style
Dylan wakes up after a trainwreck and thinks she's unharmed. The first thing she notices is the other passengers are nowhere to be seen. The only person she discovers is Tristan, an emotionally detached boy who seems to be around her age. But soon she discovers she's passed on and is stuck in the "in-between". Tristan is her key to moving on.

In FERRYMAN, the reader witnesses Dylan's journey with an innocent romance along the way. Tristan is cold at first, which makes sense considering his job. Dylan seems to accept her death a little quickly but it was interesting watching how she grows and learns as the story goes on.

FERRYMAN is a retelling from Greek mythology that contains a slow-paced romance, along with adventure and fantasy. The author does an amazing job at world building and her writing is alluring enough to hold your attention. There are abrupt point of view changes from one paragraph to the next that can get a little confusing, but overall it's an interesting read. The mythological elements are what enthralled me the most.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to those who love Greek Mythology, fantasy retellings, and slower paced with lots of world-building.
