'McFall's ability to imagine and create is unmatchable.' --The Guardian children's reader review on 'Bombmaker'
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)

I wanted to read Ferryman from the moment I first heard about it, I was incredibly intrigued by the concept for the story and curious to see how it would play out. It's hard to say too much about the story because it would be easy to give things away but I found the world that Claire McFall has created was really interesting and I was kept hooked because I wanted to see how things would play out for Dylan and Tristan. The writing style is beautiful and descriptive but it took me a while to get used to the way the perspective would change from one paragraph to the next. It felt like I spent quite a lot of time backtracking as I tried to make sense of things and that did throw me out of the story more than once.
Although I found the world interesting I have to admit that I wasn't a huge fan of either of the main characters. I never really felt that we got to know Tristan well enough to understand Dylan's fascination with him, in the beginning he pretty much ignores her or is rude to her and although he opens up later on I just never felt that connected to the relationship between them.Read more ›
I thought it was very creative and well thought out. I also think this could make a good film.
I've already recommend it to my eldest who is looking forward to reading it next.
I think the most inspiring thing about this book is the fact that the entire novel is surrounding only two characters. It is their journey that we see but there is literally very little interference from other characters and this could have caused the book to become boring very easy on but instead this just helped to make the book feel more intense and, when all was said and done, I still wasn't ready to let the characters go. The story itself was action-filled, with so many moments that get your heart-racing and your blood-pumping that you can't help but keep turning the pages to know exactly what will happen next. It is clear that Claire McFall knows how to create tension and she does so without the reader even realising that they're holding their breath until they let it all out when the danger has passed.Read more ›
