Book Review: The Ferryman Institute by Colin Gigl

What an absolutely magnificent novel this was! Gigl’s world-building is second to none here, as is his characterization. The pacing, the plot, the revelations – everything was spot-on from start to finish.

The ending gave me hope that this might turn into a series, and I hope it does because you can sign me up for all the books right now. I know it’s been 6 years, but the COVID years were thrown in the middle there, so that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. I’m holding out hope…

Seriously. I cannot say enough good things… The writing is excellent. The emotion is genuine. The construction of the Ferryman Institute and its relationship to our world is thought-provoking and philosophical and downright clever. The levity and humor come in at just the right times and provide a perfect counterpoint to the heart- rending emotion.

It reminded me of the magical world-building of T.J. Klune, and there is no higher compliment I’m prepared to give. This is my favorite book of the year so far. And I read rather a lot of books…
