✧✧HALF BLOOD by Sally Green: A Haul Fairy Book Review✧✧


Half Bad by Sally Green is a breathtaking debut novel about one boy's struggle for survival in a hidden society of witches. You can't read, can't write, but you heal fast, even for a witch. You get sick if you stay indoors after dark. You hate White Witches but love Annalise, who is one. You've been kept in a cage since you were fourteen. All you've got to do is escape and find Mercury, the Black Witch who eats boys. And do that before your seventeenth birthday. Easy.


The world is about witches. White witches are the ones who are supposed to be the "good" ones, (but they are cruel, prejudiced and unjust) and the "bad" are the black witches that are prosecuted and murdered for their deeds or for just having bad blood.

Half Bad focuses on a half white and half black witch, Nathan. With white witch ancestry on the mother side and having a father as a most feared, serial, mass murderer black witch (by the way his mother is dead because of his father).

The story follows Nathan’s childhood, how the society’s been cruel and bullied him, even by his own blood. His been having a hard life, he’s abused by the coven, physically and emotionally. He’s confused if he is black or white, he’s slow in academics and the girl he likes, likes her back, but the brothers are going to kill him if he doesn't stay away from her.

Nathan’s plan is to survive from everything the world has thrown him until his 17th birthday to receive his 3 gifts of magic or he will die.

As the name suggests, it was also a half bad for my taste but also half good. It started well for me, there are some boring parts but overall I liked it.

I give it 4 Fairy Wings for a unique plot, for Nathan’s childhood and for unpredictable chain of events.
