The First Edition is now scarce. The book is very beautifully produced indeed, on archival stock paper, with silver boards, matching silver ribbon marker, silver circles on the page edges, and silver pictorial DJ, as we have come to expect of British publishing. Presents Sally Green's "Half Bad". A global bestseller, the first book of the projected "Half Bad" trilogy. "In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White Witches, who are good; Black Witches, who are evil; and sixteen-year-old Nathan, who is both [hence the novel's and trilogy's title]. Nathan's father is the world's most powerful and cruel Black Witch. His mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch, or else he will die. In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, 'Half Bad' is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Sally Green and Modern Fantasy collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the title page by Sally Green. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the true First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant British writers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0670016780. Bookseller Inventory # 18840
Synopsis: "Highly entertaining and dangerously addictive."?Time Magazine
An international bestseller, translated into more than 50 languages!
Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world?s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan?s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers?before it?s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is monitored, when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?
Half Bad is an international sensation and the start of a brilliant trilogy: a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive.
About the Author: Sally Green lives in north-west England. She has had various jobs and even a profession but in 2010 she discovered a love of writing and now just can?t stop. She used to keep chickens, makes decent jam, doesn't mind ironing, loves to walk in Wales even when it's raining, and will probably never jog again. She really ought to drink less coffee. Half Bad is her first novel.
