Review: Half Wild by Sally Green

I enjoyed Sally Green’s story of young witch Nathan in Half Bad, and can’t wait to see what he does next, in Half Wild.

"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.

drey’s thoughts:

At the end of Half Bad, Nathan was on the run (again). Half Wild picks up right where Half Bad left off, and Nathan’s disoriented and worried. Nothing’s worked out how he expected, from Gabriel’s absence from their agreed-upon meeting place, to the presence of Hunters on his trail, to controlling his magic. So what’s a wanted, hunted, half-breed witch going to do?

Can he trust the stranger who shows up at his hidey-hole with news of Gabriel and offers of alliance? Will the witches of Europe be able to band together to fight the Council’s edicts before it’s too late?

There’s plenty of drama, with the angst of teenagers in love – especially unrequited love. There’s plenty of action, with a rescue to plan and Hunters to eliminate. There’s character growth, repentance and reconciliation, and heartbreak. In short, Half Wild has plenty for the reader who enjoys all of the above in a good-vs-evil, witchy, wrapping.

drey’s rating: Excellent!

About Sally Green

Sally Green lives in north-west England. She has had various jobs and even a profession, but in 2010 she discovered a love of writing and now just can’t stop. She used to keep chickens, makes decent jam, doesn’t mind ironing, loves to walk in Wales even when it’s raining, and will probably never jog again. She really ought to drink less coffee. Half Bad is her first novel.
