Synopsis (book 1):
Wanted by no one.
Hunted by everyone.
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 there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?

The Long Version
There are no words to describe my love of this series.
But I’m going to try.
Book 1: Half Bad
When I first read this book, it completely blew me away.
The second person POV at the beginning was brilliant, and the story itself was wonderful…in a horrible way.
The highlight was definitely the characters. Nathan was just so broken and angry, and most of the other characters were just so awful. And it was all presented just so well.
Absolutely loved it.
Book 2: Half Wild
After reading Half Bad, I hadn’t thought the series could get better.
I was wrong. It did.
Half Wild picks up where Half Bad left off…Nathan alone and thinking Gabriel is probably dead.
Nathan is also having to adjust to the fact that every now and then he turns a somewhat vicious animal.
Just like the first book, the characters were brilliantly portrayed in this book.
AND I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!
Book 3: Half Lost

That is all.
