BOOK REVIEW: City of Halves by Lucy Inglis


Ancient myth collides with modern technology in this gripping urban fantasy. 

London. Present day. Girls are disappearing. And strange things are roaming the streets. 

When sixteen-year-old Lily is attacked by a two-headed dog, she's saved by hot, tattooed, and not-quite-human Regan. As Guardian of the Gates, it's his job to protect both halves of the City--new and old--from restless creatures that threaten its very existence. But an influx of these mythological beasts has Regan worried that something terrible--and immense--is about to happen. 

The missing girls may have something to do with the monsters wandering around London, but what do they have in common? Can Lily and Regan find the girls and discover the truth in time to save London from being torn apart?

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 11 months


Harry Potter fans will love this novel! It is twisty, brilliant and an extraordinary book with two- headed dogs and more! 

When girls start to go missing in the City of London, Lily needs to find out once and for all who keeps taking the girls. Lily suddenly meets a boy named Regan, while she is getting attacked by banddogges (two-headed dogs). She realizes she is in a world with not only humans, but a lot more! 

This book was fast-paced and a fun read. 

My favorite character is Lily because she is her own person and doesn't take orders from anyone other than her family. 

I recommend this novel for anyone who would love a new world that they haven't seen before. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up. 

This book's publishing date is October 27, 2015.
