Izzy learns the truth about the secret world of the Sidhe coexisting alongside the human one, and the angels and demons who watch over the affairs of mortals, making their own plans. She becomes a pawn in this game, and it almost costs her everything. Only by taking matters into her own hands can she save her friends and family.

Synopsis

A Crack in Everything Welcome to the Other Side by Ruth Frances Long

Welcome to The Other Side ...Chasing a thief, Izzy Gregory takes a wrong turn down a Dublin alley and finds the ashes of a fallen angel splashed across the dirty bricks like graffiti. She stumbles into Dubh Linn, the shadowy world inhabited by the Sidhe, where angels and demons watch over the affairs of mortals, and Izzy becomes a pawn in their deadly game. 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.

Reviews

well thought-out and really well written. I can't wait to read the next one! -- Fred Weasley Died Laughing 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 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 the author marries together life as we know it - with life as we know it through legend and myth.

Worlds seem logical, or familiar, as if we

've heard of them before ... this book turns the tables a little on the classic YA, fantasy-romance formula as Izzy is a strong female character, and certainly doesn't need Jinx to fix her, if anything, it's the other way around. If you have read and enjoyed Fallen by Lauren Kate, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor or The Alchemyst by Michael Scott then this book should be added to your shelves immediately! -- Leabhar Love a dark adventure equally rooted in modern and mythological Ireland, this is not to be missed -- CBI Recommended Reads Guide 2014 Reminiscent of Kate Thompson's The New Policeman ... Long authentically captures the attraction and power of our fair city ... a thrilling story of identity, family, honour and love. A brilliant and captivating story about Dublin, both old and new -- The Looking Glass a paranormal romance ... a gripping fantasy adventure ... plenty of twists and turns, and A Crack in Everything is certainly a compelling and exciting read. I am looking forward to the sequel -- thebooktheartandme a smart, modern and entertaining read which will appeal to fantasy fans young and old -- Lisa Reads Books'
