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....

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.

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...

This series ruined me

Brilliant writing, amazing performance and all in all a total must. It's so painful to read but it's worth every second.

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.
