After narrowly escaping the fall of Rossarb, Princess Catherine leads a rag-tag group of survivors into the barren wasteland of the Northern Plateau. With the Brigantine army snapping at their heels, Edyon and March become separated from the group, while demon hunter Tash leads Catherine and Ambrose to an unlikely refuge - the hidden tunnels of the demon world itself. They soon find that the tunnels hold their own dangers and, while Tash travels deeper, hoping to learn more about their mysterious inhabitants, Catherine and Ambrose must return to the surface to resume the war. But the world above is in turmoil. King Aloysius's army has captured the Pitorian prince, Tzsayn, and is poised to overrun the whole country. To have any hope of challenging her father's tyranny, Catherine needs to form her own army, but when danger lurks at every turn, how can she tell an ally from an enemy? What Tash discovers in the demon tunnels could change everything, but if the message doesn't reach Catherine in time, the war might already be lost . . .

The third and final instalment in the breathtaking Half Bad series by Sally Green. Nathan Byrn is running again. The Alliance of Free Witches has been all but destroyed.

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 turn the tide for the Alliance and end the bloody civil war between Black and White witches once and for all...
De nouveau, Nathan est en fuite. L'Alliance a été détruite par le Conseil : les survivants, dont Nathan et Gabriel, sont pris en chasse. Toujours partagé par sa double nature, blanche et noire, Nathan doit désormais porter le poids du sacrifice de son père et ses immenses pouvoirs.
Face au génocide des sorciers noirs, qui s'étend désormais à tous les sorciers blancs suspectés de complicité, Nathan décide de réagir. Avec ses derniers alliés, il met au point une stratégie quasi suicidaire visant à éliminer définitivement le Conseil.
Une partie de son plan repose sur la moitié manquante de l'amulette de Gabriel. Cet artéfact puissant aurait le pouvoir de rendre son propriétaire invincible, un atout majeur en cas de bataille.
Pour compléter son fragment d'amulette, Nathan doit se rendre en Amérique afin de convaincre l'inquiétante et solitaire Ledger de prendre part au combat. Un voyage qui ne sera pas sans conséquences et dont l'issue déterminera l'avenir de Nathan et de la guerre civile magique, dont il est devenu le symbole.

The magical, stunning conclusion to the internationally acclaimed Half Bad trilogy--now available in more than 50 countries.
The Alliance is losing. Their most critical weapon, seventeen-year-old witch Nathan Brynn, has killed fifty-two people, and yet he’s no closer to ending the tyrannical, abusive rule of the Council of White Witches in England. Nor is Nathan any closer to his personal goal: getting revenge on Annalise, the girl he once loved, before she committed an unthinkable crime. There is an amulet, protected by the extremely powerful witch Ledger, which could be the tool Nathan needs to save himself and the Alliance. But the amulet is not so easily acquired. And lately Nathan has started to suffer from visions: a vision of a golden moment when he dies, and of an endless line of Hunters, impossible to overcome. Gabriel, his closest companion, encourages Nathan to run away with him, to start a peaceful life together. But even Gabriel’s love may not be enough to save Nathan from this war, or from the person he has become.
Set in modern-day Europe, the final book in the Half Bad trilogy is more than a story about witches. It’s a heart-poundingly visceral look at survival and exploitation, the nature of good and evil, and the risks we take for love.
