A Crack in Everything : Welcome to the Other Side Paperback
Part of the Dubh Linn series
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.

Review by wyvernfriend
Damn you Ruth. Now in the interests of full disclosure I know Ruth and I can see echoes of panels we've been on, or she's been on and I've commented at or bar-room discussions later, at conventions in this. My greatest regret about this is not reading it sooner, but now I have book 2 to look forward to reading soon.Izzy is a regular teen with a summer job and challenging her parents, but one day she sneaks out to go to a gig with friends and her life changes forever when she's exposed to the fey underworld of Dublin and her life will never be the same again. Her exposure to Jinx and their romance will change both of them and the relationship between Dylan and the Leannan Sidhe Silver also makes me want to read more. There are also Angels of all sorts, fallen, sauntered vaguely downwards and still members of the choir heavenly, all with different plans and motives.This is faerie that's not cosy, not easy, full of death and blood and politics that is pretty raw. Mistakes could kill, both faerie and angels are willing to kill if they think it will further their plans. Features a lot of Irish mythology, lots of the unusual places in Dublin and that mythic sense from a lot of Irish fairy tales where Faerie is just next door. It also makes me want to re-read it and visit some of the places mentioned in the text.Recommended.
