Winner of the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize Best Fiction for Teens Award 2015 - Shortlisted for The Branford Boase Award 2015.  Important questions are posed in this richly imagined and fast-paced supernatural thriller with big themes at its heart. Nathan lives in a world that is very similar to our own. But it has one very big difference: there is a record kept of all the witches that are alive. Everyone must be classified as White, Black or Fain/ Non-Witch. White and Black witches are divided into ferociously hostile factions with notorious skirmishes between the two. Only one thing unites the two sides: fear of a boy with an inheritance from both sides. That boy is Nathan…Nathan’s mixed parentage makes him impossible to classify and it makes him dangerous. Soon everyone is after Nathan. Is he a hero or an outcast? And can he survive?  - One of our Books of the Year 2014 - One of the Lovereading4kids Readers' Choice Books of the Year 2014 - March 2014 Debut of the Month

This thrilling YA debut (rights now sold in 42 territories!) will do for witches what Twilight did for vampires… In fact, film rights have already been snapped up by the company that made the Cullens famous.
