The third and final installment in the breathtaking Half Bad series by Sally Green.
Nathan Byrn is running again. The Alliance of Free Witches has been all but destroyed. Scattered and demoralized, constantly pursued by the Council's Hunters, only a bold new strategy can save the rebels from total defeat. They need the missing half of Gabriel's amulet - an ancient artifact with the power to render its bearer invincible in battle.
But the amulet's guardian - the reclusive and awesomely powerful witch Ledger - has her own agenda. To win her trust, Nathan must travel to America and persuade her to give him the amulet. Combined with his own Gifts, the amulet might just be enough turn the tide for the Alliance and end the bloody civil war between Black and White witches once and for all...
'A slow burn of a read, the last leg of Nathan's journey is devastating and beautiful as he finds love and comes to full power. Like the best portrayals of war and its hideous aftermath, the consequences will haunt readers long after the final page. An immensely satisfying finale of dazzling magic, hard-earned romance, and the tragic realities of war.' (Kirkus Reviews)
