Meet Nathan Byrn...

He's half White Witch, half Black Witch.
His mother was a healer, his father is a killer.
He's been kept in a cage since he was fourteen.

But if White Witches are good and Black Witches are evil, what happens if you are both?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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

“My Honest Review”

I truly loved this book, the fact that you really got to imagine how prejudice feels like. How you got to feel like you were in Nathan's shoes. Though I was kind of supprised that Rose was killed off. And I was a... More
