Half Bad (Half Life, #1)Half Bad by Sally Green

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nathan ended up with a better childhood than you would think, what with being the son of a black witch and a white witch in a world where white witches rule. Only one of his siblings hate him and the sanctions aren’t that bad.

Until one day they are; Torture and imprisonment become Nathan’s life, despite the fact that he’s done nothing wrong. It brings into question whether “white” is in fact equal to “good.” Nathan makes it through his time with his tormentor and escapes to find someone who can help him reach his full birthright as a witch.

Half Bad is dark and often depressing, like the later Harry Potter books. Also like the Harry Potter books, the plot twists will keep you reading and the magical world will intrigue you. Nathan is a worthy, complicated character learning not to judge a witch by their color, including his dark father.
