Praise for City of Halves
"Reading like a cross between Clare's City of Bones and Gaiman's Neverwhere . . . Fans of urban fantasy will delight in the imaginative use of the London setting and enjoy Inglis' smart, succinct writing. . . A story that will make them think as well as feel." --BCCB
"Slowly unraveling mystery, fast-paced action, and preternatural romance will leave readers eager for the clearly projected sequel." --Horn Book
"Sixteen-year-old Lily is Veronica Mars meets Shadowhunters' Clary Fray, a hacker dragged into the magical underworld. [A] refreshing interaction of programmer girl meets magical boy[.]" --Kirkus Reviews
"Lily and Regan are appealing protagonists, and British author Inglis creates some equally engaging secondary characters in her first book for teens. . . A tense and well-written supernatural adventure." --Publishers Weekly
"Lily and Regan are engaging characters, and their love story is sweet." --Booklist
