Waiting on Wednesday: Bloodstone by Gillian Philip

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Bloodstone by Gillian Philip

From Amazon UK: Nothing as of yet. But even if there WAS a blurb, I wouldn't read it.

Sometimes, there's a series so good that you don't need to have any clue what's about to happen in it. Sometimes, a book can be anticipated because you're completely sure that the author will do a fantastic job in carrying on a story.

Bloodstone is one of those books. I'll avoid spoiling Firebrand for anyone yet to read it (but, really, what are you waiting for?! Full review here if it takes any more persuading) but that book was such a great start to a series, with such an amazing central character in Seth MacGregor, that I was completely hooked on Philip's world of the Fair Folk and have been anticipating this for months. Her writing style is wonderful and her characters are awesome - in particular Seth and his brother Conal. Really glad that this is so close (release date August, I believe!)

  1. Eagerly anticipating August now! Perfect book to take on my summer hols. I loved Firebrand and can't wait for the sequel.
