In an unseen world hidden within modern London, girls are disappearing. It's up to fiery sixteen-year-old Lily, and Regan, an enigmatic half-human boy, to unravel the conspiracy that threatens to consume the city.

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher, Chicken House London is a very old, very strange city - magical, mysterious and mythical. And it's Lily's home. When she finds out it's defended by beings whose motives are not solely of this world, it's lucky she has the help of a boy who is one of them. Or is it?

I love Lucy Inglis's hauntingly romantic - and, frankly, totally believable - world where past, present and imagination collide in the most unexpected and loving story of friendship since . . . forever.

Synopsis

City of Halves by Lucy Inglis

London. Girls are disappearing. They've all got one thing in common; they just don't know it yet \. Sixteen-year-old Lily was meant to be next, but she's saved by a stranger: a half-human boy with gold-flecked eyes. Regan is from an unseen world hidden within our own, where legendary creatures hide in plain sight. But now both worlds are under threat, and Lily and Regan must race to find the girls, and save their divided city.
