"Highly entertaining and dangerously addictive."—Time Magazine

An international bestseller, translated into more than 50 languages!

 
Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan’s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers—before it’s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is monitored, when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?

Half Bad is an international sensation and the start of a brilliant trilogy: a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive.

About the Author:

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. 

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

     Kieran says, “You know what this is, Connor?”      Connor has to think about it, but eventually says, “A hunting knife.”      “Yes. To be exact, it’s a French hunting knife. They make great knives, the French. Look at that blade.’      I squirm and grunt and curse them.      ‘Hold him still, Niall. The blade folds away beautifully into the handle. Great design. The Swiss go for all the fancy gadgets in their knives, but all you need is a good blade.”      I hear the rip of my T-shirt and feel the cool air on my back. I buck and curse again.      “Hold him still.”      I feel the blade brushing over my back and now I hold still. The knife stops in the middle of my left shoulder blade. The point goes in.      “I’ll start here. This half is the Black half, I’d say.”      And slowly the blade cuts down my back.
