Gillian Philip’s Icefall got a starred review in Publishers Weekly!

Here’s the full review, from the January 5 issue:

The nearly flawless fourth and final volume in Philip’s Rebel Angels series (after Wolfsbane) is faster-paced and sharper than its predecessors. Sithe clann captain Seth MacGregor, lover Finn, son Rory, and the rest of their people are in exile in our world, four years after escaping a massive attack by the dark queen, Kate NicNiven. She still wants Rory and his power, which she plans to use to control the dying Veil that separates worlds. Seth is gradually losing his soul to Kate, but he still hesitates to return to Kate’s world until she begins killing and kidnapping clan members. Once back home, Seth and company realize that Kate’s forces greatly outnumber theirs, and she has obliterated nearly everyone who might have joined the fight against her. The few remaining potential allies could prove as deadly to the clann as the queen herself. Clann and queen clash in the climax of centuries of warfare, as two worlds slide into darkness. Philip takes no prisoners in this last battle of the Veil’s final days and excellently ties up loose threads by revealing cleverly hidden connections.

Icefall will be published on March 24.
