“You will have a powerful Gift, but it’s how you use it that will show you to be good or bad.”

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.


My Thoughts…

I really enjoy second books that can keep up with the first.  Half bad was so good and I kept putting off reading the sequel because I was afraid of being let down and I’m not sure why I did that.  This book was down and dirty, and added new characters, while giving me all the feels.  I’m really going to give it a go at doing a small review without spoilers for those of you whom haven’t read this trilogy before.


Nathan’s character is one of the strongest yet one of the most pigheaded I have ever come across.  I want to just make him some soup and tell him it will all be okay, yet I know it won’t.  He is legitimately bad ass but only lets so many people get close to him.  I adore everything about him, and have absolutely no idea why.

Gabriel is probably the only person in the whole wide world that can love Nathan for who he is always and forever.  Their love for one another as best friends is really pure.  Gabriel’s character as a whole is kind of amazing; he is one of those people that once he is aligned with you he will always have your back.  I’m loving how kind and caring he can be yet strong and determined the next minute.

Marcus wasn’t as bad as everyone thought was he?  Marcus sort of really cared for Nathan in his own way.  He couldn’t communicate in so many words how he felt all the time.  However he did show it in other ways.  I wanted more of him in this book.

Van and Nesbitt are really great additions into this book, I wasn’t sure at first but I really enjoy them both.  Maybe Nesbitt more than Van, however both add that certain kind of spark you didn’t know was missing.

I love how Sally Green constantly keeps us guessing like you never really know who you can trust.  Can you ever really trust anyone in this war?  Are allies really allies?  Are enemies really enemies?  I’m so excited to dive into the third and final book.  I really hope it doesn’t disappoint me.


About the Author…

Sally Green

Hi – I’m Sally Green. I’m the author of the real-world/ fantasy Half Bad Trilogy, which is made up of Half Bad, Half Wild and Half Lost. Most people read them in that order but there’s always a few who don’t. Many people who read them are teenagers but there’s a lot who aren’t.

I’m currently working on a new series called The Smoke Thieves, which is due to be published in spring 2018 and is definitely fantasy (there will be a map).

I said I’d never write another trilogy after Half Bad but it seems I lied.

I live in a village in north-west England.

Did you read either this book of Half Bad???  What did you think???
