"Waiting On" Wednesday #1 ~ Half Wild by Sally Green

You know what's so wrong with my "Waiting On" Wednesday selection today? The book I've selected  is sitting on my dining room table. Yep... you read that right. Not only am I "waiting on" it to be released, I am having to wait to read it because there's a line of MBR (must be read) books ahead of it.

And I really, really, really want to skip them all and read HALF WILD right now!


  • Publisher: Viking Juvenile
  • Publishing date: March 24, 2015
  • Author: Sally Green
  • Series: The Half Bad Trilogy #2
  • Acquired: ARC sent to me from publisher for honest review
In HALF WILD, Nathan is still on the run. He needs to find his friend Gabriel and rescue Annalise, now a prisoner of the powerful Black witch Mercury. Most of all he needs to learn how to control his Gift – a strange, wild new power that threatens to overwhelm him. 
Meanwhile, Soul O'Brien has seized control of the Council of White Witches and is expanding his war against Black witches into Europe. In response, an unprecedented alliance has formed between Black and White witches determined to resist him. Drawn into the rebellion by the enigmatic Black witch Van Dal, Nathan finds himself fighting alongside both old friends and old enemies. But can all the rebels be trusted or is Nathan walking into a trap?

Why I am "waiting on" this book goes directly back to the first book in the series -- HALF BAD. A beautiful cover, elegant and simple but striking enough to catch your eye... as is this cover too. Amazing covers! And then the narration sucked me in. I felt what Nathan felt and the bird's eye perspective, myopic in scope, but then again Nathan has always been locked up or away and he has not had a chance to broaden his horizons so to speak. In HALF WILD he will have to expand and adapt and deal with people and he isn't the best at social interaction when he likes you, I can only imagine how things will play out when he has to ally himself with those who have been cruel to him in the past.

Thanks as always Breaking the Spine for hosting.

    1. Oh... thanks for stopping by. This first in the series, HALF BAD, was optioned for a film already. It's good, if you like first person narration. You feel Nathan's isolation the way Sally Green writes it. I am excited about this second book though because it ties him back to some people from the first and will branch out the perspective of what's going on.

  2. I've been wanting to start this series for a while. Maybe when this comes out I'll finally pick up the first one so I can enjoy them together.

    1. Yeah... I wish I had the third book so I could read them all together. Must be a byproduct of being able to binge watch television now.

  3. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. info here: http://tsundokubooks.blogspot.com/2015/03/versatile-blog-award.html
