He’s stroppy, bad-tempered, loud-mouthed, occasionally rebellious but very loyal and is willing to do his share of the dishes. Every home should have one, and now you can – just by answering one question and a tie-breaker.
The Rebel Angels series (contains no wings, despite the title and the presence of faeries) follows the adventures of Seth & Conal MacGregor, sons of a Sithe clann chief assassinated by the Faery Queen. The story began in 16th century Scotland with Firebrand; it comes right up to date with Bloodstone, the brothers having somehow managed to survive into the 21st century. And now things start to get difficult...
Bloodstone isn’t published till August 16th, but you can get your hands on an advance signed proof copy PLUS a signed copy of Firebrand PLUS (when they’re printed) a poster of the final Bloodstone cover (since I’m offering Seth as a prize, and the proof cover is plain), created by the amazing Lawrence Mann.
Just to keep you on your toes/confuse the issue, my question isn’t going to concern the Rebel Angels series at all. Just tell me the heroine’s name that connects my first book Bad Faith, the Darke Academy series (which I write for Hothouse Fiction under the name Gabriella Poole), and an ancient Greek prophetess with believability problems.
And for a tie-breaker: I’m always looking for a new name for a Lammyr. They’re the cousins and enemies of the Sithe: cool, skinny, sociopathic and sarky. I already have Skinshanks and Slinkbone - go on, help me out and suggest a third...
