A great story for both guys and girls. When I first looked at this one I assumed because it was witches that is would be a girl protagonist – wrong! The main character is Nathan, a half-code witch. His mother was a white witch, his father a black witch – the very powerful and most hated black witch in the UK. Since the white witch council rules their lives, they make it particularly difficult for Nathan. His family (except his nasty elder sister) are supportive and loving to Nathan, expecting him to grow and evolve his mother’s side of his nature more than his father’s. But he is taken, treated badly and expected to kill his father when the chance arrives. Nathan has other ideas.
I liked this story, and I’m keen to read the next one…
