Nathan is hunted from all sides: 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.

But wait I'm having a Deja Vu here So how cool would it be to read a book about little Snape whose father is Voldemort? It would be awesome but I'm still waiting for it because this book has nothing with the amazing world of J. At first I was surprised by the writing style. I didn't like it but I have to admit that we don't see it every day. Best look at the ground. Aside from the "You do this. Now you should do that", it was like I was looking at some people's freaking twitter!!
Just had a shower. Tweet 1: Good morning guys! I just woke up: Tweet 2: Now I'm walking to my bathroom Tweet 3: Oh, I'm getting my awesome pink toothbrush. Tweet 4: Now I'm brushing my brilliant teeth. As I got more in the book, the writing style changed to normal to tell the story of how we got there. However, it was slow and at some point it was really dragging.
Most characters were just useless and weak. I saw some tentative plot of "Nobody is totally good or totally evil" but it was a big fail. Specially the dark witches who were bad just to have people in the dark side for the plot's sake. The world building was also lacking. Aside from the witches' story, I missed some aspects about the place. Sometimes I was even imagine them in a middle age style and had to be reminded that this was a nowadays story. Also, at some point the inner dialog got into a loop where we had nothing new.
But wait, in this magical world that was one thing that disappointed me most. Where were the tons of spells? Why the hell would witches use fists and knifes to fight?
After all the dull pages I was expecting the climax.
I couldn't find it. So, if you are in for some depressive thoughts and a kid who is trying really hard to be accepted by his magic? But if you are looking for a book full of magic and spells, with a little bit of action and romance, I don't think I would recommend this.
All in all, this just wasn't for me. View all 33 comments. Jul 27, Hailey Hailey in Bookland rated it really liked it. I wasn't expecting to like it but I actually found it really enjoyable and really quick! A nice surprise! Half Blood started as a 5-star read for me. This lasted 'til about three quarters which is when I realized we really hadn't gotten anywhere in the story.
Boredom quickly followed, until I was unfortunately underwhelmed by the anticlimactic ending. Nevertheless, it's an incredibly well written book that has a lot to offer if you have a bit of patience, although it's unique in a way that may not adhere to all tastes.
When we meet our protagonist, Nathan, he's naught but a young lad. Young and unfo Half Blood started as a 5-star read for me. Young and unfortunate to have been born the son of a notorious Black Witch; a fact that makes him a leper, someone to be hunted down and caged.
We learn that, even though he's highly intelligent in many ways, he's not exactly book smart. He can hardly read and write. To reflect his age and intellect, the writing is very simple, even childlike at times, which I found brilliant. In addition, Green adopts an informal narration lightly peppered with slang that really brings him to life. Then as he ages, so does the writing. To make the story itself just as genuine, it begins with second person tense.
It's unusual, but highly gripping and surprisingly perfect. This is a child who has been controlled, tortured, and beaten both by his peers and by the system his whole life. Introducing the story with that choice of narration not only brings the horror of his situation to the limelight, but it makes you a part of it; it's haunting and unsettling. While it's definitely not for the younger crowd, the scenes of torture and suffering manage to be vivid without being overly graphic.
The power of imagination is used well! For the most part, however, the book is told through first person present, where Nathan narrates his own gruesome story. We follow him from childhood to his 17th birthday, from his hateful step sister, to his first love. We see how he learns to cope, to separate himself from the pain, to harbor strength not many would have.
And, in spite of everything, he still manages to have a sarcastic sense of humor that had me chuckling. The world building comes with no complaints. The witch lore is original, highly interesting, and doused with an old-school feel. There's a complex system in place involving White witches, Black witches, Hunters, Gifts, traditions and myths, with details delivered in a way that wonderfully balances our curiosity and fascination.
His long days of torture turn to long days of nothing: I found myself getting increasingly bored. The plot was just not progressing at all.
Then after all the waiting, the ending ended up being frustratingly anticlimactic. All this time, and it's like a balloon that pops and quickly fizzles.
It's as if this was more or less an introduction for the real deal yet to come. I would still very much recommend this one for all I liked about it.
It's as much a book about witches, as it is a moving story about a young boy learning to survive in a cruel world. For more of my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads View all 8 comments. Jan 08, Regan rated it really liked it Shelves: Half Bad follows a boy named Nathan, and Nathan lives in a world where good witches white and bad witches black exist. Nathan, however, is unique because he is half good and half bad, his father is the most notorious black witch alive and his mother is dead.
Nathan lives a life facing constant prejudice from all sides, and he is just trying to survive until his 17th birthday so he can receive his 3 gifts and become a full fledged witch. I enjoyed this book overall, especially the first half. In the first half of the novel Green focuses on giving a very detailed back story of Nathan, some would say this part was too slow, but personally I enjoyed the pacing.
However, the pacing shifted in the second half of the book when it jumped back to the present, and then I found everything was moving to quickly. I especially felt this with the climax, it seemed to came out of no where, and was only about 40 pages. I also had a small problem with the romance in the novel, my problem being I didn't believe it.
Overall this book was a very interesting, and fast read. I was hooked from page one, and I will be reading the next book. View all 7 comments. Feb 13, Ben Alderson rated it it was amazing. For me, something like "Half Bad" is very, very rare.
I read a lot of fantasy, much of that lot from the contemporary masters of the field Sanderson, Rothfuss, Williams, Rowling etc. I have been well immersed in the fantasy genre, and as spoiled as it may sound, have come to expect greatness in the fantasy that I choose to read. I chanced across a copy of the "Half Bad" unedited manuscript at the BEA, and decided to take a chance.
I was sufficiently and unexpectedly blown away. It delivered a feeling to me that I haven't come across since reading Rothfuss's "The Name of the Wind. I'm not sure if it was the unique POV that Green chose to use, the excellent storytelling, the believable dialogue, or a combination of all three, but I fell in with Nathan.
Spiritually, emotionally, even physically I was genuinely squirming in my seat at some points. His journey was my journey. And the fact that this is Green's debut novel makes it all the more impressive. This isn't your average YA urban fantasy centered around witches.
I hated even putting that last sentence in here just because this book feel so unique. This is a masterful work of fiction that will grab you, hook, line, and shackles. I'm sure I'll be turning this story and its messages over and over in my mind until the next book in the trilogy comes out.
I will most definitely be championing "Half Bad. Because if you're like me, you're going to want one copy to treasure and one copy to give to a discerning friend. View 2 comments. He had it bad from the start. He is born to a mother that was a white witch and a father that was a black witch. A lot of his family hated him from birth and wanted him dead.
I mean to look at a little baby and want it dead. I'm not saying his mother did, there are things about her you have to find out by reading the book. Nathan had one sister that hated him, but he had a great relationship with his other sister and his brother. They loved him for him and not for his half blood. His sweet grandmother loved him too.
The counsel were always having Nathan come in to be assessed to see if he had more of the white gene or the black gene but they never could determine it. I'm telling you though, a lot of the white witches in this book are some evil people. I don't know where they get off calling the black witches evil when they torture the black witches for a good while before they kill them. I mean yeah, you want to do away with anything that is evil but them torturing people if they even have black witch blood is a little much.
I mean me personally would only see fit to torture people that are involved in animal cruelty, pedophiles, elderly abusers, you get my drift. But someone just walking down the lane and you see they are a black witch and your ready to burn them at the stake The freaking white witch bullies should have been tortured.
They did evil things to Nathan because Nathan and their sister Annalise were sweet on each other and God forbid two mix witches get together!
Nathan ends up with a woman the counsel set him up with when things didn't work out at his home and she puts him in a cage and makes him workout all of the time and work around the place.
She does some beatings here and there, but I felt like she didn't hate him as much as she let on. She taught him self defense, martial arts and did some schooling with him. Then the jerks decide to come and take him away again and do some more beatings and mark him as a half blood. One of Nathan's family member dies and he wasn't even told until a month later, he wasn't allowed to see his family again.
I really felt sorry for him. There are a few different characters in the book that I liked. I didn't love or hate this book and I am interested in seeing where the rest of the trilogy goes and hopefully things will.. I mean really, this kid needs a break, there is only so much you can do to a kid before you MAKE them bad!!! View all 6 comments.
Dec 18, Kiki rated it it was amazing Shelves: Loved every word of it. Full review is on its way. I'm sorry, but I'm afraid this review will be terribly short. The reason? Take the title and replace the word "Half" with "Totally".
Here you have my review. But, as I'm sure you know by now, I wouldn't be at peace with myself if I didn't at least try to explain why.
Criminally dull. With one exception: She manages to be disgustingly annoying with just three or four scenes she's in. That takes talent too.
The White Witches hunt the Black because they think they are bad. Sorry, I think I missed the part where I had to be impressed and clap my hands in delight. Nathan's childhood is depicted like a hellhole. In this, Sally Green succeded perfectly: But, I'm sorry, I can't bring myself to care for a character or his whole book only by virtue of his past. I need more. I needed more. And this book just didn't comply. View all 13 comments. Mar 06, Darth J rated it liked it.
This book read more like an overlong prologue than the actual first installment in a series. The whole thing is about the MC finally getting his powers, which he does at the end. I have a problem with these terms: The whole drama is about hunting down and wiping out Black witches, and keeping those who could be Black witches from gaining their powers. While there is some backstory provided about how they came about, the fact that there is a serious lack of clarity , ironically over something black and white , seems ill thought out.
Further, the writing is unpolished , and by that I mean rough. And by that I mean plenty of errors and entire passages that seemed like more of an outline than actual storytelling.
It seems like a middle schooler wrote it and a lazy teacher gave them a passing grade just for turning it in. Moving past that, the actual story is entertaining and fast-paced. I can't believe it! I finally read this book! I've wanted to read it since the first time I saw it on here. And, I'm not disappointed, not one bit! The reason I'm giving this four stars is because while reading I actually felt like the author was very inspired by Harry Potter that her book was infected by the main idea behind it, but it was also completely different and very well executed!
The storyline is amazing, I was feeling like crying every time I forced myself to close the book to sleep becau I can't believe it! The storyline is amazing, I was feeling like crying every time I forced myself to close the book to sleep because I had this thing called work which is useless and couldn't wait to cuddle with it in bed, it just kept on making me more curious and intrigued!
But the best thing about this book is the characters! Nathan the main character, is a half black biracial, bisexual witch who is on the run to find his black witch of a father and goes through a lot while on his journey. His voice was so miserable yet very marvelous, I fell in love with him from page one or whatever, the way he described how his life was going at the moment only makes you feel bad for him and more proud of what he becomes, also he is a family man I'm gonna love myself a family chap and an angry little hedgehog, can he get any hotter?
No one knows. I hope life is going to be a tad bit soft on him in the rest of the books. ARRAN Have you ever read about the perfect brother who is ready to go through hell and back for his baby brother and then not telling him that life is so shite, then sing him a song, put him to sleep, run his fingers through his hair, and tops it off with a kiss on his forehead for good measures? Because it's rare.
But seriously though, this is how you weave a fictional character and make it believable! Because nobody can be gentle, soft, as straight as the letter S, long-hair-don't-care, wonderful eyes, loves unconditionally, loyal, beautiful, gorgeous, sexy af, posh, Swiss, and Nathan's number one fan.
Seriously, what more convincing do I have to do? Rose sweet sweet Rose. I just can't right now. Thank you for understanding.
The world in this book is so amazing, I can't get enough of it and I hope the rest of the books are as great as this one. The book is so diverse, it's mind blowing. Also, sexuality is like a normal thing in this book? No one needed to reveal anything or come out of whatever they're imaginary inside, it's just is, no big deal. As simple as what colour your eyes are. As simple as it should be to be honest.
Seriously, just read it. View all 4 comments. Al ser una relectura, recordaba ciertas cosas que me marcaron. La autora no tiene pelos en la lengua y habla de torturas y sangre sin importarle nada y bien que hace, oye. Jan 25, Faye, la Patata rated it liked it Shelves: If there's anything Half Bad by Sally Green has, it's definitely an interesting and intriguing premise.
Now, let me tell you it's hard to make me excited for any Paranormal book, but that's simply because I hold this particular genre in very low regard. I am not a fan of it, not by a long shot, but having been proven wrong again and again by such spectacular PNR books Written in Red and The Diviners , I will not say "no" to one that has been deemed great by my peers, and especially not to this If there's anything Half Bad by Sally Green has, it's definitely an interesting and intriguing premise.
I am not a fan of it, not by a long shot, but having been proven wrong again and again by such spectacular PNR books Written in Red and The Diviners , I will not say "no" to one that has been deemed great by my peers, and especially not to this one whose blurb was enough to excite me on its own. White Witches! Black Witches! Both factions at each other's throats! A boy trapped between two worlds who wants to be Good and to be accepted, but cannot control the changes in his body that lean more to his Black genes!
However, my enthusiasm for this book did not last very long. It started good, then it got slow, shortly after it felt dragging, and then the most disastrous thing happened - I started skimming. A paragraph, two paragraphs, a page, 2 pages That sounds pretty vague.
Let me address my concerns one by one: However, his mother died and he was left under the care of his Grandmother and his stepbrother and stepsisters Arran, Jessica and Deborah. Meanwhile his father is on the run, hiding from WW hunters who aim for one thing: Because his father is a famous White Witch killer, Nathan is ostracized and looked down upon by the rest of the WW community; WW kids are warned not to talk to him, the Council which is kind of the overbearing authority of the WW keeps on releasing decrees limiting the things he can do, and he gets bullied every chance the others get.
I really felt for Nathan because I understood what he was going through.
Being discriminated upon by your peers just because of what you are sucks a lot, having felt it myself when I went to Europe to study for a few weeks. It forces you to ask yourself if there is anything wrong with you and if there's something you should change to be more desirable to the community.
It's not something I would wish even upon my worst enemy. The treatment Nathan got here felt very disturbing and real, and I admired his calm and calculating attitude in facing the adversaries that come his way.
I really liked him as an MC However, this calculating demeanor didn't last long. Around the middle of the book until the end, it felt like I was reading the story of an all-new different person. Nathan was no longer in control of his emotions It's not really a bad thing as I am guilty of that myself, but it was just so exhausting to read the last 50 percent that were full of hardcore angst and anger not to mention it was at that time it became an adventure book where he went from one place to another One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
You read that one? I shrug. There are many of this kind of episode happening in the book, where he would suddenly become so angry he would throw things around and he would shout and he would go all angsty in his head and I'm like, " Man, I'm drained from reading this shit. Where did my beloved character go? Sorry, Nathan. She does absolutely nothing but look pretty and demure.
I am aware she has a hard life at home as her family is limiting the things she can and can't do and she is being pushed around all the time, but come on, a little personality wouldn't hurt, would it? This is the reason why you're being pushed around - because you allow it to happen. And I'm not surprised why. The first part was pretty good as we're given a view of Nathan's childhood and how he was perceived by the people around him.
I felt for him, cried for him, and was even angry on his behalf. I think this comprised the first or so percent of the book?? After that it was a long, drawn-out journey from one place to another, with a lot of internal narration in between that I felt was just constant repetition of the same thoughts over and over again.
It was this part that disappointed me the most - the "journey" was so dragging that I was skipping pages upon pages just to get to the end of it doesn't help Nathan became a cardboard character at this point. For such a drawn out middle part, you'd think the climax would be powerful and enchanting and meaningful, but nope You mean The Council as the evil-disguising-itself-as-good organizational authority is pretty old already to be completely honest.
That's probably just me, though. It's an impressive debut, and I have no doubt it would be a bestseller and probably be a movie too, but there were a lot of issues I had with it that merited it only receiving three stars. Thankfully there is no cliffhanger at least I didn't see it as one! View all 22 comments. Feb 14, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: Nathan was someone that I immediately felt quite sorry for.
The way his mother , siblings, in fact everyone treated him from the time he was a new-born was just disgusting and awful. Poor Nathan just got tormented, put down, and generally mistreated his entire life. This book for me seemed to be about racism? I might have that wrong, bu 2. There was a hint of romance in this, but not a lot. I wanted things to work out for Nathan and Annalise, but because she was a white witch and Nathan was a half-code, that seemed to be worse than Romeo and Juliet.
The ending to this was okay, and I was pleased that Nathan did finally get something that he wanted. The writing style is so cool and I really like how the timeline is set up.
The main character Nathan is great, he is just a fighter and never gives up. He goes through some absolutely terrible things, but he always has hope and keeps control of his mind.
His journey is so intriguing and interesting, I just had to keep reading to know more. The world is also great because I felt everything is explained nicely and it's not very confusing. I like the descriptions of how the witch world is entwined with our modern world.
Also, some of the language reflects that. I just think it is so cool! This story is definitely character based and the reader is deep inside Nathan's head.
