"Waiting On" Wednesday - Half Bad

"Waiting On"  Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on...  


Half Bad by Sally Green


* Book will be released March 4, 2014

Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:

"In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and sixteen-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 seventeenth 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?"

This looks like an interesting read. I’m always happy to read new takes on the paranormal so hopefully these witches have some great mythology to bring to the table. Plus the excerpt on the site makes it sound pretty crazy.

  5. I'm only just over 100pages in and it is seriously amazing. You'll love it! Definitely what I've been waiting for in the witch genre, and actually a really good showing of old school prejudices' too. Great pick!
