Nathan is a half coded witch. A half black and white one. He is the only second weapon to his father's death, Marcus, the most dangerous Black Witch ever known. Therefore, the Council of White Witches has been controlling Nathan's life as long as he could remember. His life has been almost ruined because of the Council. The only reason he could ever think of why all these things had been happening to him was because of his father, but he can never hate him, he can never do what the Council wants from him. The Council sees Marcus a really big threat to White Witches and its goal is to murder him with Nathan, his half coded son. What would Nathan's life be? Will he ever be able to see his father? Will he ever do what the Council forces him to?
I really did not enjoy Half Bad, by Sally Green, at all. To be honest, this book is not a book of exciting events nor it is a book about witches, I mean it is about witches, but not what we expect. All Nathan's story is about how he is been suffering right from his birth until his current life. There is no joy or excitement in his life. He is been isolated from any other white witches except his family. Later when he gets older, he becomes a prisoner of the Council and the story goes on and on. I do not really recommend this book if I want to be honest, however, that is my personal opinion.
