The Bookwitch’s year-end round up has been posted. It’s like an advent calendar without ads…or vents. And – just like those little venty windows – it’s always a joy to open. All the more so (for us anyway) for it making mention of Gillian Philip‘s rather brilliant Icefall.

Icefall coverFor the uninitiated, Icefall is book 4 (the final book) in Gillian’s Rebel Angels series, which began with Firebrand – ‘the best fantasy novel of the year’ (The Times in 2010). It’s writing that will stay with you for a very long time.

As it says on the cover, ‘Forget Game of Thrones. This is better.’
