The second thrilling book in Sally Green's Half Bad trilogy

An enthralling fantasy in the Harry Potter tradition.--Time magazine

In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, seventeen-year-old Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world's most powerful and violent witch. Nathan is hunted from all sides: nowhere is safe and no one can be trusted. Now, Nathan has come into his own unique magical Gift, and he's on the run--but the Hunters are close behind, and they will stop at nothing until they have captured Nathan and destroyed his father.

Review quote

Praise and accolades for Half Wild

* Riveting. . . . Features the same powerful language, well-developed characters, fascinating magic, and harrowing action sequences as its predecessor and will leave its readers anxiously awaiting the final volume. --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* Once again, Green pushes the boundaries of definition; this time: What is wild? What is human or even civilized? The blood and gore, the willingness to endure and survive at any price, and the dichotomies between good and bad, love and hate, wild and civilized--all haunt the reader, climaxing in a tragic ending that portends the horror, violence, and possible relationships in the trilogy's final installment. --Booklist, starred review

Green delivers vibrant characters, and Nathan's relationships arc in thrilling highs and lows. . . The climax ushers in a bloody, unforgettable cliffhanger. A character-driven page-turner offering both emotional depth and gory thrills. --Kirkus Reviews

"Strong writing and engaging plot. . . readers who enjoyed [Half Bad] will devour this sequel." --School Library Journal

Because this series has already been optioned for a movie, you better get on the books before the hype goes bananas.--Bustle
