“You will have a powerful Gift, but it’s how you use it that will show you to be good or bad.”
In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, seventeen-year-old Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most powerful and violent witch. Nathan is hunted from all sides: nowhere is safe and no one can be trusted. Now, Nathan has come into his own unique magical Gift, and he’s on the run–but the Hunters are close behind, and they will stop at nothing until they have captured Nathan and destroyed his father.
Honestly I really enjoyed this – for a lot of the same reasons as Half Bad!
I did however dock it half a star to 3.5 because of the whole Annalise thing. Ugh. So, I get that Nathan likes her and wants to save her, fine, whatever. But he doesn’t know enough about her really, certainly not recently rather than the version of her in his head. And also he’s just so naive by not telling her bings and hoping it will all be okay. Especially as we have the wonderful Gabriel on the side 😍😍😍 I am all about Gabriel and Nathan, and I wanted to smack them both about the head at times! Nathan for abusing it a little (though I do get loving someone as a friend and feeling helpless but ugh kissing him and then NO THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT THAT MEANT?!) and Gabriel because he’s just too good for Nathan haha.
I liked getting to see more of Marcus and Celia though – they feel quite similar for all their differences. Though I’d have liked to see Nathan challenge Marcus more on why he killed so many people he didn’t need to.
And I still love this world. Definitely into the final book! Well. As soon as I get hold of a copy at least!
