"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.

Nathan is back and with it comes his new found abilities. He’s still on the run from the terror of the White Witches, but he’s not alone. With a new round of characters and enemies he might know, Nathan finds out exactly what he’s capable of. Being out in the wild suits him.


Half Bad had some pacing issues but there was no problem with this one because I was constantly engaged. Namely because there’s a certain love interest that I want him to get with. I felt like Nathan could fare better with this person and I just liked this person so much more for him. This person is good for him in more ways than one. Loyal, kind, and so in love with Nathan that I’m pretty sure Nathan himself didn’t want to admit it to himself. The other love interest fell apart for me, and I wholly didn’t trust them. You can tell how I’m writing these people so vaguely because I don’t want there to be any spoilers.


There’s the sudden urgency to get around the White Witches even more and this time Nathan indeed gets help. From people he may not expect either. I thought it was wonderfully paced and that ending! Geez..If I knew it would be such a climatic ending I would have waited until the last book. I found it interesting that his magical power manifests here even though I still don’t know what kind it is exactly. I liked the world a whole lot more and even though there are parts where it’s dragged on, I couldn’t help but love the ending. It just brought it up one star for me.



If I can’t control it I could kill anyone.
There’s no right or wrong here.
I never had you down as a coward—so that shows how much I know about people.
I treasure every second with you. Every second. More than you know.
The point of being good is doing it when it’s tough, not when it’s easy.

    TOTALLY agree with you on the romance front. XD I ship a Certain Black Witch Someone with Nathan so so haaaard. Gah. Nathan is deluded with his denial, but to be fair, he’s been abused and hunted all his life, so i don’t really expect him to make smart decisions. THAT ENDING THO. Oh gosh. I’m absolutely crying and dying until next year. Best. cliffhanger. ever.
