Chasing a thief, Izzy makes a bad turn down a Dublin alley and finds the ashes of a fallen angel smeared across the dirty bricks of the alleyway. She meets Jinx who belongs a shadowy world inhabited by the Sídhe, where angels and demons watch over the affairs of mortals, and Izzy becomes a prize in their deadly game.

Her only chance of survival lies with Jinx, the werewolf like fairy sent to capture her for his twisted mistress, Holly.

Izzy is something strange and new to him, and turns his world upside down and síde ways (bad joke.)

I really enjoyed this book,  altogether it’s pretty decent.

It has an interesting plotline which was a really good idea but I found it got slow and hard to follow at times. Izzy is a good realistic heroine though I found her a bit girly and annoying. Jinx was probably the best character for me, with an interesting background and written very well. He’s good at hiding his feelings, but we hear all about them from his point of view and I found that really helpful to read.

It’s a nice book with a great story, solid characters and cool fairy folklore.
