In a world where witches must be either black or white, Nathan is both - a half code. As the son of the most powerful and hated of all Black Witches, Nathan is shunned and finally persecuted until his family can no longer protect him. When he is caged and beaten, Nathan learns fast how to survive and how to fight for his birthright and the gifts that will set him free. His damaged defiance makes him a fascinating central character. Fast, gripping and fresh, this is a storming debut from new author Sally Green.
