Half Bad is the first part of the fantasy in a planned trilogy, centering around the story of witches in modern England. It is the story of Nathan, his journey to discover his identity, and the unrelenting attitude to constantly strive for survival amidst overwhelming adversities. Nathan was captured and tortured by the white witches, in order to plot murder against his father - the most powerful and evil black witch ever. Before Nathan turns seventeen, he had to acquire the three magical gifts from his father, otherwise he will die. In modern times in England, white and black witches lived among humans, referred to as fains. While white witches would stealthily manipulate the humans, the black ones, according to the white witches, would ruthlessly murder white ones and steal their power. Nathan's father, Marcus, was the most powerful dark witch, and his mother, Cora Byrn, was a white witch, who committed suicide under the tyranny of Marcus. Nathan was a half-code, half black and half white , and so the subject of scrutiny and disgust for witches of all stripes. He was taken away from his father at the age of 14 by a white witch, and captured, beaten, and handcuffed. Nathan had to take three gifts at the age of seventeen, that would be given by his father and which would complete his transition into witchhood. Just before his seventeenth birthday, Nathan escaped in search of a way to find his magical gifts. But with the entire world of witches hunting for him, and with no one to trust Nathan has to survive to carve his own destiny. Half Bad is a grappling fantasy, keeping its readers speculating till the end. It is an entertaining beginning to the planned trilogy. It was published by Penguin in 2014, and is available in paperback. Key Features: The Half Blood is the debut novel of author Sally Green. The novel is already being made into a movie by FOX.

A book about witches with no owls and not a pair of round spectacles in sight. The new Hunger Games,I suspect... Brilliant and utterly compelling - I loved it. Kate Atkinson, author of Life after Life and Behind the Scenes of the Museum Teens rejoice: the inheritor to Stephenie Meyer's crown has arrived. Fiona Wilson, The Times Edgy, arresting and brilliantly written, Half Bad grips you from the first page and doesn't let go. Michael Grant, author of Gone A brilliant debut that is both deeply unique and unsettling, one that chilled me to the bone and broke my heart even as I sped through its pages. This will haunt you. Marie Lu, author of Legend Take our word for it, this book is going to be huge. Stylist Brilliantly paced with more than a few nasty surprises, Half Bad is a wickedly addictive read that will capture the imagination of any fan of YA fiction. Starburst Not since the Harry Potter books - yes, I said it! - have I felt so fully immersed in an author's creation... I couldn't be more stoked over Half Bad, and this launch novel of a trilogy truly deserves all the hype surrounding it - and much more... Amanda Hurley, Inkwood Books
