RATING: 4 Stars

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.

I absolutely loved this book! I really liked the fact it was set in London - the familiarity of the London backdrop made the whole thing seem real, despite the fantastical creatures and goings on. The plot was interesting and the prophecy element gave it an extra depth. I usually prefer novels in first person as it makes me feel closer to the character, but this was so well written that I felt like I'd been transported into Lily's world. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

- Gem.
