Dylan has escaped a horrific train crash unscathed.
Except she hasn't.
The bleak landscape around her isn't Scotland. It's a wasteland haunted by wraiths searching for human souls.
And the stranger waiting for her isn't an ordinary boy. Tristan is a Ferryman, tasked with transporting her soul safely to the afterlife, a journey he's made a thousand times before.
Except this time, something's different.
Torn between love and destiny, Dylan realizes she can't let Tristan go, nor can she stay with him. Eventually, inevitably, the wraiths would capture her soul and she would be lost forever.

Can true love overcome the boundaries of death?

Ferryman is a thought-provoking and truly original story of a love that refuses to be limited by death. This stunning, award-winning debut novel was reissued to coincide with the publication of the eagerly anticipated sequel, Trespassers.

“Claire McFall has brought to life a thought-provoking story about life and death with a fresh perspective on the afterlife that is brilliant and unexpected. Ferryman is a unique take on Greek mythology with vivid descriptions, a sweet love story, and a stunning journey. The romance between Dylan and Tristan is sincere and complicated as they travel through dangerous terrain and fight deadly wraiths. They have a fun banter and an easy chemistry, giving each other a chance at a new beginning. Tristan is more than a guide and protector, he's a calming force Dylan holds onto in her afterlife, while Dylan makes Tristan feel alive for the first time. Ferryman is a riveting love story with a fun spin on mythology and a unique approach to the afterlife.” —Manhattan Book Review
