Half Wild by Sally Green Review

After reading Half Bad and loving it, I went to Thailand and while I was there I went into a book store and saw the other two books in the series and just had to buy them. Now, it is time for a review.


The Story

“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.

Taken from goodreads

The story is what makes this book fantastic, every single part of it is great. From the number of different powers that the characters can have and how even though some of them might have the same powers they can be used in different ways. To the fact that there are basically three different species in the book but all are human. White witches are less powerful but focus more on non-combat magic, black witches are more powerful and focus heavily on combat magic and then we have fairns who are just ordinary humans who have got no idea that magic exists. This world is fantastic and I can’t give Sally Green enough credit on making it so great to read about.

Of course, this is a follow up to Half Bad so we are still following the life of Nathan as he trys his hardest to get the girl he loves back to him and away from Mercury but to do this he is going to need some help from people he doesn’t know and one boy who loves him with all his heart and knows he will never get the same back from Nathan. Marcus (Nathans Father) is still on the run and is still scared that his own son is going to kill him like the visions say he will. So much happens in this book and every single second of it is fantastic as I really didn’t want to put the book down when I got into as I wanted to know more about how Nathan feels about the world he is now a big part of and if he is going to be up to the challenges that are going to be coming his way.

The descriptions are great, sometimes I do wish that more was put into describing the buildings are meeting areas that we are told about as it would make it a lot easier to imagine how everything looked but the character descriptions are spot on. I could imagine how Annalise looked when she was in her death like sleep perfect because of how much detail was giving to us about her and it was simply great.

I personally think that this book is better than the first, this is because we get a lot more action and we get to see how much Nathan has grown up since the start of the series. We get to see how he is now able to make more right decisions then wrong and how he is a mixture of both his father and mother to become a good person. I can’t wait to get into the next book as I want to see how this is going to end.
