Publisher's Summary

Nathan Byrn is running again. The Alliance of Free Witches has been all but destroyed. Scattered and demoralised, 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 to turn the tide for the Alliance and end the bloody civil war between Black and White witches once and for all....

Perfect

The book is as perfect as all of the others. The ending felt right even though I know it would have been nice it Gabriel had survived, but it wouldn't have been complete like that.

Wonderful ending of a trilogy

Absolutely beautiful ending. I don't write many reviews but these books by Sally Green are very good. The Narration is on point. Sad that the story has ended but grateful that I had the chance to read.

exceptional

I absolutely loved this book. it broke my heart, made me cry and laugh and I'm sitting here a little breathless at the ending.

the performance of Carl Prekopp was on point and his accent made me see Nathan more clearly than when I read the first two book myself

this is a spoiler so don't read on if you don't want to be spoiled.

I said if one of them died I'd flip a truck and well.... I guess it's time to find a truck. it broke my heart. I loved the fact that it wasn't an instant romance that it took time, that they made mistakes and fucked up, but that they loved each other anyway. Gabrielle and Nathan will remain my otp forever, even if they are both quite... yeah....

This book, like the two first one took my breathe away and I highly encourage everyone to read them.

Half Lost (Half Bad #3) by Sally Green

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

OMG, the end to a really great series - I just loved Carl Prekopp's narration of Nathan as he tries to become the with Gabriel loves. Now that he has his gifts, Nathan works to perfect them, hunts Annaliese and helps the Alliance of Witches against the hunters. I wish I could say I loved the ending...I enjoyed all of Prekopp's characters in his narration, author Green's worlds were wild, heart stopping, and powerful. I have to thank The 2015 Hub Challenge for giving me the impetus to listen to this series, it was awesome

What did you like best about this story?

Nathan and Gabriel's love story

Fitting End.

Not the ending I was expecting, but I can live with it. It will make me think a bit, it will set this series apart from the others. I will be thinking about this one for a while. If a book/series can make me do that and not get lost in the abyss of same-same, then I am all for giving it more than 3 stars. I won't say this series is the best out there, but I did enjoy the story. It kept me intrigued, it was written well, the characters were engaging, and the story moved most of the time. I just loved Nathan and his angst, and I adored Gabriel and the relationship these two had with each other. And Carl Prekopp? Adored his narration. It was his voice that convinced me to purchase the first book. Look forward to more narration from Carl.

I want to hear more

I am not the target market. Llistened to all three straight through including when I should have been sleeping. I usually drift off to stories and start again next time but was too caught up, particularly in this third book. Too old to cry at books...but...

I was wounded not lost

I really enjoyed this YA witches at war trilogy. It's pretty downbeat and it is soon apparent that any kind of moral absolute, bright and shiny happy ending will not fit with what has gone before. I find Nathan almost unbearably sad as he finds out who he is and of what he is capable mainly through pain and violence although there are some redeeming episodes of love - his relationship with Gabriel, and with Arran. It's pretty violent throughout but the violence generally reveals character and moves the story along. I reallly like the inclusion of characters like Celia who began as Nathan's captor in Half Bad but who evolves throughout the trilogy.

Carl Prekopp is great as ever. He's good at believable teenagers which, going by some other narrators, is harder than you'd think.

Give it a go.

Loved every minute

I have listened to all three of the books and have enjoyed every single word. Every chapter was wonderful and turns and twists to keep you guessing. Narration is beautiful and kept the story real, and so so moving.......can only hope there is more

Great performance

This has been one of my favourite audio books. The story is very good but the performance by Carl is excellent. He is my new favourite narrator. the use of sound effects in this book also was brilliant.

Left me thinking about the characters days late

I am afraid to write too much in case I give anything away. I truly loved this book. You go on a journey with the characters and you become very protective of them.

It maybe a fantasy, but there is a touch of realism to it. Minutes, hours, days after finishing this book I was still thinking of the characters and what they had gone through.

This quote sums it up

“You've been away a long time. Were you lost?

I was wounded, not lost.”

A great listen - all 3

Half relieved

Trials and tribulations continue for our troubled protagonist, some good things too and a rapidly encountered finale which came as a surprise to me, but was right. He isn't a nice, loveable hero but somehow our sympathies do lie with him. I would have been happy for the series to continue, but it clearly won't and that's OK too. This is the last of the three books in the series and I'm half relieved it's over, half sad. I bought the first book when Audible offered it as a Daily Discount. It grabbed me by the ears despite the somewhat disturbing first chapters. I simply HAD to read the following two books after finishing it. This is the pleasure of finding a new author by accident, and I'm pleased to have found Sally Green. Carl Prekopp is a fine narrator and can voice many different accents convincingly (a lovely genuine Aussie one is of note). A well deserved 4 star listen for those who enjoy realities a little different to this one.

Engaging fantasy with hard edges

Any additional comments?

I became thoroughly involved in this trilogy and 'binge listened' to all three in succession. The world Green creates of black and white witch clans locked in a deadly feud had just enough grit in it to avoid being too fey and was mercifully light on cod mythology and Tolkienesque names. If the homoerotic scenes made me cringe a little, I acknowledge that they were probably intended for the emo readership more than incurious males like me. (It does seem to be something that female fantasy writers like including ever since Anne Rice started the trend.) But the main reason I became hooked was Carl Prekopp's performance - I doubt if I would have read the books - whose interpretation of the hero as a truculent northern teenager (making the books sound like Kes meets Harry Potter) was a great antidote to any tendencies towards whimsy. I'll look out for him in future.

Touching ending to this excellent trilogy

Very touching last book in the trilogy, great story, perfectly narrated. All audio books should be like this
