Fire Brand by Gillian Philip

Seth MacGregor and his older half-brother Conal are part of a fairy like species called the Sithe. They live in a parallel world hidden away from mortals which is behind a veil that keeps the two worlds apart. The brothers find themselves exiled from their world and enter the mortal world in the last decade of the sixteenth century, a time of religious wars and witch-hunts. What follows is an action packed adventure as the brothers must fight for survival and to save the veil.

What a fantastic fantasy novel that really gets your imagination going. The Sithe are fairy folk, but forget all you think you may know about fairies, for in this book an original fresh idea, the characters in this book will make you look at fairies in a whole new exciting way. In particular the character of Seth is incredibly brave and arrogant and will go to great lengths to save his brother from harm. Not what you would usually expect a fairy to be like at all. Add to the mix an evil Queen and a gentle love story and you have a brilliant, well thought out book that sets the story for the sequels excellently. This is a book that will be liked by all and not just the young adult audience. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book.
