A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
A sequel to the fascinating DREAM LONDON in which Ballantyne conjured a sparkling version of a city in fuzzy, constant transformation where things change overnight and reality is at most unsteady. Anna, a seventeen-year-old girl and her bodyguard soldier make their way to Paris, in search of her parents who had gone missing in the earlier instalment following the defeat of the geography-warping invasion, and she comes across a tall, dark stranger with eyes like a fly who reveals that the missing might be in Paris. Picaresque and eventful, their road saga is full of meetings, surprises around every corner, inevitable trip ups and, naturally, their destination proves as unpredictable as the other city they left behind. Splendid urban fantasy with a welcome whiff of grit and sorrow. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
Anna is doing her best: there are lots of other seventeen year olds who are living alone in the partially rebuilt ruins of London. She hopes that by keeping things clean and tidy and by studying hard she can keep the dreams away...But then a tall, dark stranger with eyes like a fly enters her life. He claims to know where the missing people of London have ended up. He might even know the location of Anna's missing parents. Anna can help, but to do that she will have to let go of what little normality she has managed to gather around herself and begin the journey to Dream Paris.
