This is the final battle.

The Alliance is losing the war, and their most critical weapon, seventeen-year-old witch Nathan Byrn, is losing his mind. Nathan’s tally of kills is rising, and yet he’s no closer to ending the tyrannical rule of the Council of White Witches in England. Nor is Nathan any closer to his personal goal: getting revenge on Annalise, the girl he once loved before she committed an unthinkable crime. An amulet protected by the extremely powerful witch Ledger could be the tool Nathan needs to save himself and the Alliance, but this amulet is not so easily acquired. And lately Nathan has started to suffer from visions: a vision of a golden moment when he dies, and of an endless line of Hunters, impossible to overcome. Gabriel, his closest companion, urges Nathan to run away with him, to start a peaceful life together. But even Gabriel’s love may not be enough to save Nathan from this war, or from the person he has become.

Set in modern-day Europe, the final book in the Half Bad trilogy is more than a story about witches. It’s a heart-achingly visceral look at survival and exploitation, the nature of good and evil, and the risks we take for love


I don’t know what people expected?!?  It’s not like people haven’t died in the first two books!!  Reading over reviews in Goodreads or Amazon you would think people hadn’t read the first two books!!!


This series seems to be either you really enjoy it or really hate it.  Well ladies and gentleman I thoroughly enjoyed this series!!  This last book did not let me down in any way.  There was action, drama, death, love, and a lot of plot.  I had tears in my eyes in the end.  I cannot explain how much some of these characters meant to me.

“You’ve been away a long time. Were you lost?

I was wounded, not lost.” 

These stories are so dark, they are not the normal YA you read. Nathan is not your normal “hero” he has some serious dark thoughts.  Killing comes easily to him and he doesn’t mind doing it.   This is not so pretty book, that doesn’t gloss over things.  I really enjoyed the romance that is to be in this book, it was really a slow burn.   Whoa and that ending… while it was meant to be it doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt some.


Have you read this series??? What did you think of it??? 


About the author…

Sally GreenHi – 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.
