With the help of his father, Nathan, a half White and half Black witch, must rescue Annalise and aid a revolutionary group of witches intent on defeating the Hunters. Meanwhile, Nathan is also struggling to harness his new, bloodthirsty Gift: the power to shape-shift.
This is a young adult books that contains:
• Profanity (two or three F-words, sh*t, bad*ss)
• Violence (killing, slicing throats and stomachs, one character murders and eats both animals and humans when he is in his animal form, cutting out a heart and eating it, lots of blood, stabbing a stake in two boys’ hands, cutting off someone’s ear, shooting, references to executions and torture)
• One character is in a magical, deathlike sleep
• Two boys kiss twice (quite passionately on one occasion—one boy has feelings for the other, but the other boy is unsure of his feelings toward him)
• Mention of teenagers having sex (vague descriptions)
• Smoking a cigarette
• Drinking champagne
Half Wild is a satisfying sequel to the fantasy novel Half Bad. The books in the Half Bad Trilogy are very gritty and violent, so I would advise parents to take caution in letting their young teens read them.
