'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
the trilogy is an unrelenting tense and brilliant fantasy, with fraught family relationships and eccentric and memorable beings … an absolute tour de force
takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster as she brings her stunning Dublin-based fantasy series to an end
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
powerful, enthralling, unnerving and an incessant pace, A Darkness At The End will haunt you long after the book is done
the story is full of atmosphere, rich with legend and history, and full of excellently drawn characters
