Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—The second book in Green's trilogy picks up the story shortly after the conclusion of Half Bad (2014). Nathan has escaped from the Hunters again, and is living alone in the forest. Although he has received his magical ability from his father, Marcus (a powerful Black Witch), he still doesn't know how to control it. He's angry and frustrated, and worried that he'll end up more like Marcus than like his White Witch mother. As well as his internal struggles, the physical battle between Black Witches and White Witches begins in earnest here, and many of the characters from the previous installment are involved. Readers may have difficulty keeping track of the large cast. Like many stories of good versus evil, family, friendship, and trust are key themes. Stubborn Nathan learns about all of these the hard way, and the author's strong writing and the engaging plot will keep teens intrigued. Scenes of graphic violence make this title appropriate for older readers. It's essential to have read Half Bad to understand this volume, and readers who enjoyed it will devour this sequel. VERDICT Highly recommended for fans of dark fantasy.—Marlyn Beebe, Long Beach Public Library, Los Alamitos, CA

Review

Praise and accolades for Half Wild:

* "Riveting. . . . Features the same powerful language, well-developed characters, fascinating magic, and harrowing action sequences as its predecessor and will leave its readers anxiously awaiting the final volume." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Once again, Green pushes the boundaries of definition; this time: What is wild? What is human or even civilized? The blood and gore, the willingness to endure and survive at any price, and the dichotomies between good and bad, love and hate, wild and civilized—all haunt the reader, climaxing in a tragic ending that portends the horror, violence, and possible relationships in the trilogy’s final installment." —Booklist, starred review

"Green delivers vibrant characters, and Nathan's relationships arc in thrilling highs and lows. . . The climax ushers in a bloody, unforgettable cliffhanger. A character-driven page-turner offering both emotional depth and gory thrills." —Kirkus Reviews

“Strong writing and engaging plot. . . readers who enjoyed [Half Bad] will devour this sequel.” —School Library Journal

"Because this series has already been optioned for a movie, you better get on the books before the hype goes bananas."—Bustle
