Product description

Hansel and Gretel meets Noughts and Crosses: a book to chill you to the marrow. If you’re black, they’ll kill you or lock you in a cage. A Black Witch, that is… Nathan’s father is a Black Witch, a mass murderer on the run. His mother was a White Witch; killed by his dad, of course. What does that make Nathan? Half bad. Illiterate, semi-feral, so dangerous he has to be kept in a cage. Or so the White Witches say. He hates White Witches but loves Annalise, who is one. He’s been kept in a cage since he was fourteen. Now he’s got to escape and find Mercury, the Black Witch who eats boys. Before he turns seventeen… Sheer genius: you can feel the malice that drips from every page. No halves: brilliant all the way through.
