April 2016 Book of the Month This epic, high-stakes conclusion to the record-breaking Half Bad trilogy will more than satisfy the legions of aficionados desperately awaiting its release.
Consumed by anger and set on avenging his father’s death, Nathan is on the run again, while the fragmented Alliance of Free Witches is battling against the odds to end the war between the Black and White witches. In order to do this, Nathan must journey to America to obtain the missing half of Gabriel’s potent amulet, but persuading the keeper of the amulet to part with it will take everything he has.
Often brutal, sometimes poignant, and always visceral, this is a fittingly, satisfyingly gut-wrenching dénouement to a visionary trilogy about the brutalities of war, survival, and love. ~ Joanne Owen
The third and final instalment in the breathtaking Half Bad series by Sally Green - now available for pre-order! Nathan Byrn is running again. The Alliance of Free Witches has been all but destroyed. Scattered and demoralized, constantly pursued by the Council's Hunters, only a bold new strategy can save the rebels from total defeat. They need the missing half of Gabriel's amulet - an ancient artifact with the power to render its bearer invincible in battle. But the amulet's guardian - the reclusive and awesomely powerful witch Ledger - has her own agenda. To win her trust, Nathan must travel to America and persuade her to give him the amulet. Combined with his own Gifts, the amulet might just be enough turn the tide for the Alliance and end the bloody civil war between Black and White witches once and for all...
HALF BAD is a parallel universe occupied by witches, where light and dark, good and evil are in continuous flux. It is a journey into adulthood, whereby Nathan must find himself, and his place in the world. A journey of discovery that will lay bare the best and the worst of humankind.

Sally Green lives in north-west England with her husband and son. 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 Wild is her second novel.More About Sally Green
