Half Wild by Sally Green
Nathan is a teenage boy who is struggling to survive in a magical underworld that despises him because of his unusual genetic heritage.
In this second book in the series he has stronger allegiances and a greater control over his own magic, but the themes of alienation and self-sufficiency still loom large. The book has a breathless pace and some great first person writing, but what's most exciting are the character developments and shocking twists. Read Half Bad (if you haven't yet) and then read this sequel, which might even be better than the first book.
