A A Hollow in the Hills Try to outrun the fear

Written by Ruth Frances Long

Part of the Dubh Linn Series

A A Hollow in the Hills Try to outrun the fear Synopsis

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
