Bloodstone

Rebel Angels Book Two
buy-book

For centuries, Seth and Conal have hunted the Otherworld for the Bloodstone Kate wants. Homesick, and determined to ensure their clann’s safety, they’ve also made secret forays across the Veil. One of these illicit crossings has violent consequences that will devastate both their close family and, eventually, their entire clann.

In the Otherworld, Jed Cameron – a feral, full-mortal young thief – becomes entangled with the strange and dangerous Finn MacAngus and her shadowy uncles. When he’s dragged into the world if the Sithe, it’s nothing he can’t handle – until time warps around him, and the danger reaches out to threaten his infant brother.

In the collision of two worlds, conflict and tragedy are inevitable – especially when treachery comes from the most shocking of quarters.

Reviews of Bloodstone

‘Seth MacGregor is back. Lots of women have waited for this moment, and I don’t think they’ll be disappointed… Firebrand was very good. Bloodstone is much, much better. Bring on the next instalment of Rebel Angels!’

– Bookwitch

‘An epic, sprawling, plot… It’s incredibly difficult to know who to trust and that makes the book a really tense read…. I have no idea where Gillian Philip will take us from here – but I have every confidence that it will be an incredible journey finding out!’

– YaYeahYeah

‘A journey through the darkest reaches of the mind, the most painful beats of the heart. I am still very much in love with the rugged Seth. Bloodstone is breathtakingly dramatic and beautifully crafted.’

– The Bookette

‘Firebrand set a really high bar… Bloodstone more than meets the challenge. Gillian has a real knack of making a character jump off the page. Everyone is brilliantly drawn, but I can’t overlook the beautiful, crisp language and the plot, which cracks along with the occasional pause for breath and left me, literally, shaking for about an hour after I finished reading.’

– My Little Notepad

‘Yet another powerful dramatic read from Gillian Philip. She’s not an author to let her characters, or her reader, off lightly and there’s no pulling of punches… There was one certain passage at which I called a temporary halt to reading – put the book in the freezer for a while, as Joey from Friends does – because it didn’t seem right and proper to carry on without a pause, so much was I involved with the characters… A heart-wrenching, gut-mangling read.’

‘There were moments in this second book where I literally had to pause, put the book down, breathe, and pick it up back up, such as the emotional pull that Gillian Philip beautifully creates.’

– Reading in Between The Lines

‘GP makes it all feel effortless… I love this series and can’t wait for the next book.’

– Lynn’s Book Blog

‘Action packed and enthralling… The fantasy world is strongly grounded in reality. We are convinced by this world partly because in many ways the Sithe are all too recognisably human.’
