Firebrand (Rebel Angels Book 1) by Gillian Philip
I have a proof of this and I am reading it at the moment. I'm up to page 26. I am already weak at the knees because Gillian's writing is so poetic. Thursday evening Gillian tweeted me the cover and so I wanted to post it here. I love it. It is so evocative. Just look at Seth's face and SWOON!
Anyway, this morning and I logged on and pre-ordered a finished copy from Amazon. I need to have a first-edition finished copy of this book. I just KNOW it is going to be huge!
Firebrand is released by Strident Publishing on August 13th 2010.
Here is the blurb for those of you who are unfamiliar with this epic book:
It’s the last decade of the sixteenth century: a time of religious wars in the full-mortal world. But the Sidhe are at peace, hidden behind the Veil that protects their world - until their queen, Kate NicNicven, determines to destroy it.
Seth MacGregor is the half-feral son of a Sidhe nobleman. When his father is assassinated, and Seth is exiled with his brother Conal to the full-mortal world, they vow not only to survive, but to return to reclaim their fortress and save the Veil.
But even the Veil’s power can’t protect the brothers when the brutal witch-hunts begin…
