After the gripping events of book 2, BLOODSTONE, it's now fifteen years later and Seth is the dun captain--a responsibility he never expected, knowing his brother Conal would inherit. Now Conal is gone, but Seth has his son Rory, whose ability to manipulate the Viel--the barrier between the Sithe world and the human world--makes him the prophesied Bloodstone, and the very person Queen Kate NicNiven wants for her own purposes.

Unfortunately teenagers will chafe under restrictions, even knowing it'

It's a little hard for me to accept that there's only one more Rebel Angels book to go. I've been enjoying the hell out of this series. It's sprawling and twisted and based on characters who make mistakes because they can't be anything but themselves. And, of course, the villain who takes advantage of that.

WOLFSBANE did feel a bit like a holding pattern before the end. The stakes weren't quite as high, the protagonists didn't lose quite as much - but the antagonist didn't win as much either.

Gosh do I love this series. I don't know what it is about it, but Gillian Philip's books are like crack. I can't get enough of them and each installment in this series is unwaveringly solid.

Seth has grown up a lot and is firmly in the "awesome characters to root for" column, which makes it even better that his romance here just overwhelms me with happiness for all parties involved.

Like the previous books, e

After really loving the last one in the series this one did not disappoint. Plenty of action, great characters, twists and turns, drama ~ this had it all. After taking a while to warm to it I am hooked now. The plot is just so good and the writing just draws you in and really makes the characters burst off the pages. Really looking forward to the last in the series, Icefall. I will also have to invest in the .5 prequel to Firebrand, Frost child as well I think. Overall a great read in a very enj ...more

It's difficult to review this book properly. It occasionally dragged, or was confusing as large amounts of back story were implied without (thankfully!) the usual shoehorned in explanation. Relationships ranged from uncomfortable to inappropriate. I disliked nearly every character at some point in the book.

And in spite of all that I LIKED the bloody thing and it even almost made me cry (at a point I wouldn't have thought I'd care about that much). *sigh*

The Rebel Angels series just gets better and better. Gillian Phillip has created an absolutely compelling world full of drama and violence and in the third instalment, Wolfsbane, the civil war between the rival Sithe factions becomes ever more deadly. Seth McGregor, now Captain of his clann, continues the fight against the evil Queen, Kate NicNiven, as she attempts to destroy the Veil that separates the Sithe world from our own. But Seth has enemies even amongst his own fighters and as he strugg ...more

I'm leaping in mid-season and really wasn't sure I was going to get caught up, but somewhere around the hundredth page, it had me. Contemporary faery fantasy with a land that reads like 9th century Scotland, only with CD players.

Despite the harsh, violent world of this series, I find it utterly compelling. It's the passion of these characters, for each other, for their pain, for their world, and their need to do the right thing, however damaged they are.

Love love love this series so much. Utterly shameless, especially when it comes to Seth of course!

Goes firmly on the list of books that made me late for work and stay up too late because I simply couldn't put it down. :D

I'm torn. There were parts I loved and I wanted to give this four stars, but there were also parts that I found written in an unnecessarily confusing way and a few parts that were a little boring. Overall, a satisfying read, though.

(3.5) I liked it, but the middle section lost me & I didn't get back to it for ages. I should probably wait a while before tackling Icefall.
