A Darkness at the End The shadows know your name ...

Written by Ruth Frances Long

Part of the Dubh Linn Series

A Darkness at the End The shadows know your name ... Synopsis

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

A Darkness at the End The shadows know your name ... Press Reviews

the story is full of atmosphere, rich with legend and history, and full of excellently drawn characters -- Parents in Touch powerful, enthralling, unnerving and an incessant pace, A Darkness At The End will haunt you long after the book is done -- Fallen Star Stories gripping and dramatic ... I loved the third Dubh Linn book, I couldn't put it down ... As always, Long makes excellent use of locations in Dublin - Marsh's Library, the Long Room at Trinity College Dublin, the National Gallery of Ireland and Glasnevin Cemetery all feature in this volume. She skilfully melds real Dublin and magical Dubh Linn, making excellent use of the history surrounding the locations. She writes about Dublin as a place of magic and story, making the (Irish) reader see their place in a new way ... a brilliant read, both heart-pounding and heartbreaking -- thebookstheartandme compelling -- Sunday Independent takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster as she brings her stunning Dublin-based fantasy series to an end -- the trilogy is an unrelenting tense and brilliant fantasy, with fraught family relationships and eccentric and memorable beings ... an absolute tour de force -- Irish Examiner
