Half Lost Header

Half Lost
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle
Written by Sally Green
Viking Books for Young Readers
Release Date: March 29th, 2016

Nathan is a Half Black/Half White witch, half good and half bad, half lost… and half found? We’ll see. He is as torn as he has always been. The only thing that is clear to him is that Annalise, the girl he once loved, needs to die for murdering his father. With Gabriel at his side, giving unconditional love even though Nathan doesn’t really deserve it, he barrels towards the inevitable confrontation with Soul (and Mr. Wallend), unsure if he will survive it. We, in turn, barrel towards the ending of Sally Green‘s explosive conclusion to her Half Bad Trilogy, Half Lost.

More below with some spoilers.

Half Bad cover by Faceout Studio, Tim Green: Penguin GroupHalf Bad
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Sally Green
Viking/Penguin Group
Release Date: March 4, 2014
Cover Price: $18.99

Half Bad, the debut novel of Sally Green, is not half bad, pun extremely intended. We are looking at the next YA movie trilogy, since some exec was smart enough to snatch up these rights. The first book of an intended three, it moves away from the current trendy female heroine that stands up to injustice/conformity/oppression/flammable clothing, and goes back to a male witch from modern-day England (hmmm…) — Nathan. Nathan is half white witch and half black witch known as a half code. Guess which half is bad?

In Nathan’s world, white witches are good and the governing body, while black witches are bad and almost always met with a violent end. The fains (humans) are not prominent, but are muggle in their ability to ignore witchiness. Nathan lives with his white witch family, sans mom. Nathan innocently ratted out his mother’s liaison with his cavernous black eyes and traitorous olive skin. His father is not only a black witch, but the most dangerous, most deadly, most hated one in the world. All witches, excuse me, white witches, get three gifts on their 17th birthday which reveals their magical ability. Nathan will do anything to get to his father so he can receive his gifts and escape a life of ostracism, hatred, loneliness, pain, and fear. How much pain? How much fear? How much loneliness?
