Overview

A Spring 2014 Kids’ Indie Next Pick

In modern-day England‚ witches live alongside humans: White witches‚ who are good; Black witches‚ who are evil; and Nathan‚ who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful Black witch. His mother is dead. He is trapped in a cage. Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday to receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch — or he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when there is no one safe to trust?
