"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Half Bad
Series: Half Life Trilogy 1
Author: Sally Green
Expected Publication: March 3, 2014
In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and fifteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his sixteenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?
Why I am looking forward to this: It's been a while since I read a male PoV, and pure witchcraft, too. And the promise of "only" a trilogy is kind of a relief... I have so say "three gifts" and "handcuffed in a cage" does it for me too, regardless of the protagonist's gender.
