Crow Mountain

Fate sets two English girls, Hope and Emily, on parallel journeys more than a hundred years apart ...

While on holiday in Montana, Hope meets local boy Cal Crow, a ranch-hand. Caught in a freak accident, the two of them take shelter in a mountain cabin where Hope makes a strange discovery.

More than a hundred years earlier, another English girl met a similar fate. Her rescuer: a horse-trader called Nate. In this wild place, both girls learn what it means to survive and to fall in love, neither knowing that their fates are intimately entwined.

City of Halves

In an unseen world hidden within modern London, girls are disappearing.

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.
