September 2014 Book of the Month A fabulous fantasy adventure (with a dash of romance) where the writing literally bombards your senses. Independent and tenacious Izzy unexpectedly finds herself in a different Dublin; Dubh Linn is aligned just to the side of her known world and is full of the fae, people and creatures who should belong in folklore. The fae are not sweet and syrupy, they live on the edge of battle and are sharp, chilling and capable of much cruelty. Long writes in such a way that you can see, hear and feel this Dubh Linn and the people that live there. Excitement and jeopardy become constant companions and encourage you to join and support Izzy every step of the way - it’s all too easy to lose yourself in this breathtaking world. ~ Liz Robinson
The final book in the contemporary fantasy trilogy set in Dublin: and Dubh Linn, the fae world that exists in the cracks and corners of reality. Angels, fae demons and humans are drawn into lethal conflict as the fate of the world hangs in the balance in the final installment in this urban fantasy. Holly, the fae matriarch, tries to sieze the power of heaven for herself, while Izzy has lost her memory and Jinx is dead ... or is he? Confronted with ancient powers, sacrifice and treachery. War is looming within the ranks of the Sidhe. The angels and the demons begin to draw lines, daring each other to transgress and start another war ... 'fantasy lovers will adore the twists and turns ... it's wonderful to see Irish mythology in the hands of someone who knows what they're talking about and resists presenting the reader with a twee view of the country' Inis Magazine about A Crack in Everything
Something is stirring beneath Dubh Linn. When an ancient and forbidden power is unleashed, Izzy, who is still coming to terms with her newfound powers, must prevent a war from engulfing Dublin and the fae realm of Dubh Linn. But by refusing to sacrifice Jinx - fae warrior and her `not-really-ex' - Izzy sets in motion a chain of events which will see them hunted across the city and into the hills where she'll face the greatest challenge of all. In the deepest and darkest Hollow, an angel of death is waiting ... and the price he asks for his help might be too high ... 'an excellent fantasy, with strange but memorable characters set in believable settings. The storyline all through is tense and exciting with a somewhat surprise ending.' Irish Examiner on A Crack in Everything 'Delicious and wonderfully romantic...Lyrical prose, along with highly imaginative and descriptive phrasing, makes the forest setting-and its creatures and people-immediately present and sparked with magic.' Booklist on The Treachery of Beautiful Things

Her only chance of survival lies in the hands of Jinx, the Sidhe warrior sent to capture her for his sadistic mistress, Holly. Izzy is something altogether new to him, turning his world upside down. A thrilling, thought-provoking journey to the magic that lies just beside reality.
