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 the Gifts he has inherited from Marcus, 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…

Half Lost is the finale to the Half Bad Trilogy. I began reading this trilogy over a year ago. I absolutely loved Half Bad which is the first book in the series and finished it in a couple of days. Half Wild took me a little longer to get through. I thought the second half of the book was fantastic.

Now on to Half Lost. From beginning to end, this book was action packed. Things kept happening and I didn’t know what would happen next, who the next victim of the Hunters would be or who would survive the madness till the very end. One thing that made my heart whole through this entire book...the relationship between Nathan and Gabriel. I am not going to elaborate to much because I don’t want to give out too many spoilers. What I can say is that Gabriel is one of my favorite characters. I love the way he understands, accepts, but never underestimates Nathan.

So Nathan... I loved reading from a male point of view because let’s be honest...that doesn’t happen often. In this book Nathan is completely bad ass. It was like something snapped inside of him and the whole world felt his fury. That boy could never catch a break. My heart broke for him so many times throughout his journey but I was absolutely undone with the ending of this book.

When I first finished Half Lost I disliked the ending oh so very much. It is in fact very unique and I have never encounter a book with such ending. As I sit here writing this review, I think I have come to terms with the ending. Although I think it wasn’t fair and I still dislike it...I understand why the author closed Nathan’s journey the way she did. It made me realize that not all stories get their happy endings, not everyone lives happily ever after. I know one thing for sure...this is a book that I will never forget. I met characters who I really enjoyed and other who I really did not. The plot of the trilogy was fresh and different. I am glad I dived into the world of Sally Green’s witches!!!
