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

MEDIA REVIEWS

the pace is unremitting in this well-researched amalgam of the modern and the mythical. The ending paves the way for a much anticipated third part of the trilogy

-- Irish Examiner

an exciting cocktail of the magical and the mundane in modern Dublin ... in the best traditions of the genre, this YA fantasy novel employs a supernatural adventure to explore coming-of-age touchstones like duty and conformity, while filtering broader questions - like the intersection between fiction and history - through its narrative ... the way she [Long] distils Irish mythology through a contemporary lens is particularly impressive

-- Books Ireland

this is fantasy writing at its very best ... fast-paced, compelling, unnerving

-- Fallen Star Stories

brilliantly drawn characters and a tightly knit plot combine to make an exhilarating read

-- parentsintouch.co.uk

Long's blend of Irish mythology and supernatural romance is sure to draw in fans of adventure and fairy tale alike
