BLOODSTONE by Gillian Philip Excerpt + Giveaway

Hello bookish peeps!
Any fantasy lovers out there? Back in February we had author Gillian Philip stop by and talk about Firebrand, the first book in her fantastic Rebel Angels series--check out our Q+A with Gillian if you missed it.

Book 2 in the series, Bloodstone, came out last month and we have an excerpt for you today! But first here's the description...
Bloodstone is the second novel in Gillian Philip’s critically acclaimed Rebel Angels series, debuting in the United States for the first time.

For centuries, Sithe warriors Seth and Conal MacGregor have hunted for the Bloodstone demanded by their Queen. Homesick, and determined to protect their clan, they have also made secret forays across the Veil. One of these illicit crossings has violent consequences that will devastate both their close family, and their entire clan.

In the Otherworld, Jed Cameron, a feral, full-mortal young thief, becomes entangled with the strange and dangerous Finn MacAngus and her shadowy uncles. When he is dragged into the world of the Sithe, it’s nothing he can’t handle until time warps around him, and menacing forces reach out to threaten his infant brother. In the collision of two worlds, war and tragedy are inevitable, especially when treachery comes from the most shocking of quarters…
