This is the final book in the Half Bad Trilogy and after loving the series throughout I was looking forward to getting into this book. Anyway, it is time for a review.
The Alliance is losing the war, and their most critical weapon, seventeen-year-old witch Nathan Byrn, is losing his mind. Nathan’s tally of kills is rising, and yet he’s no closer to ending the tyrannical rule of the Council of White Witches in England. Nor is Nathan any closer to his personal goal: getting revenge on Annalise, the girl he once loved before she committed an unthinkable crime. An amulet protected by the extremely powerful witch Ledger could be the tool Nathan needs to save himself and the Alliance, but this amulet is not so easily acquired. And lately, Nathan has started to suffer from visions: a vision of a golden moment when he dies, and of an endless line of Hunters, impossible to overcome. Gabriel, his closest companion, urges Nathan to run away with him, to start a peaceful life together. But even Gabriel’s love may not be enough to save Nathan from this war, or from the person he has become.

The story is what has made this series so good for me, it has got so many interesting characters and you just want to know how they are going to handle different situations. I want to know how the Alliance is going to cope with the war and if Nathan is going to be good enough and powerful enough to be able to turn the war into the Alliances favor. Because of the way the story has been going throughout the series I have struggled to be able to predict anything that happens and for me this is very rare and shows just how much time and effort Sally Green put into this series.
The reason I decided to get into this series is because of how much I love reading about powers and just how varied it can be, this book shows us all the different ways the same sort of power can be used in different ways which are brilliant and makes reading about people who have got the same powers more interesting.
The descriptions are great especially towards the end of the book when everything starts to take place. I was able to imagine every single little thing that Sally Green wrote about which is great as this is the sort of story where you need to know everything and be able to imagine everything in order to make it great.
I think the overall series is great and this is a brilliant conclusion of the series. I love the ending as it makes you aware of just how much Nathan cared for the people around him even though he has a very hard time of showing due to his up bringing.
If you like to read and are looking for a new series to start then this is a great place to look, it has got a lot of action, a love triangle, betrayal and best of all powers. I loved the series and I think you might as well.
