For "Firebrand"

""The immortal (though not invincible) Sithe world of the brothers and the all-too-familiar human world come alive with expertly drawn details." --"RT Book Reviews

""Once a year, a new novelist really blows me away. Last year it was Suzanne Collins with "The Hunger Games". This year it's Gillian Philip's "Firebrand"... A fantastically violent, utterly thrilling tale..."Firebrand" is one of the very best...Philip's clear prose is as fiery as whiskey...The best fantasy novel of 2010." --"The Sunday Times
