Flame of Surrender Trailer

I never used to pay much attention to book trailers until it came time to make my own. When I decided I should have one for my book, I watched dozens of trailers to see what I thought worked and what didn't. I can understand why people have mixed feelings about them - some of them are painfully cheesy, some are pointless and boring, and others tell you absolutely nothing about the book. Then there are the ones that are so cool you feel like you're watching an actual movie trailer. I've had a lot of wonderful comments on my book trailer for Blue Sky Days, and I was really pleased with it and proud of it, but I can't imagine doing a live-action one, which is what Rhiannon Paille did for the book trailer of her YA novel Flame of Surrender. It's so cool, I had to share it with you guys!



Synopsis: 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.
