[Review]: Bloodstone by Gillian Philip

Title: Bloodstone
Author: Gillian Philip
Series: Rebel Angels
Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: November 19, 2013

I received this book from Tor/Forge, In exchange for an Honest review.

Summary:  For centuries, Sithe warriors Seth and Conal MacGregor have hunted for the Bloodstone demanded by their Queen. Homesick, and determined to protect their clan, they have also made secret forays across the Veil. One of these illicit crossings has violent consequences that will devastate both their close family, and their entire clan.

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 is dragged into the world of the Sithe, it’s nothing he can’t handle until time warps around him, and menacing forces reach out to threaten his infant brother. In the collision of two worlds, war and tragedy are inevitable, especially when treachery comes from the most shocking of quarters….

Thoughts: It's been centuries since their exile. Forever yearning to go home, Sithe brothers Conal & Seth are still searching for the bloodstone. Their young niece Finn befriends a mortal named Jed Cameron. What should have been a simple friendship turns dangerous, with terrible results for them and their loved ones.

Great story! I'm really loving this world. In this second book, centuries have past and Conal & Seth are living in modern times.  This story definitely has a different feel. It's not all about the brothers. New characters are introduced. I especially loved Finn. She's fierce and angry, but rightfully so. Bloodstone is captivating, dark and magical. If you love adventure and hot Scottish guys this is a must read for you. Can't wait to see where book three will take the characters.

Score: 4 Stars
