Halve Human is book two in the Bisecter series by Stephanie Fazio. The plot is thickening for Hemera Harkibel. Following her father’s betrayal and the freeing of his Halve slaves, Hemera loses Tanguro to a Dusker attack. Leaving behind their burning fortress, they must travel to Solis. Solis is no longer a secret and an attack from the Duskers is only a matter of time. When the leaders of the Banished are offered a place in the Dusker camp, Hemera must accompany her aunt into the heart of Malarusk on her most dangerous mission yet. This time Hemera will sacrifice more than she bargained for. The price of freedom might just be too high for Hemera and her friends.
In this second book, Stephanie Fazio ups the stakes in Hemera’s story. This time it’s much more than wanting to belong but a true test of our heroine as she faces the greatest challenge yet. Halve Human finds the Bisecter characters cornered and with few options. This book was edgier and darker than the previous one. How far would you go to save your people, especially if you might have to make a deal with the devil? This book is all about making hard choices. I liked the way the author evolved each character as they moved through the story. Halve Human also introduces other characters who had only been mentioned in Bisecter but have an equal stake in the fate of the land. The plot is not concluded and it’s clear to the reader there is more adventure coming in the next Bisecter book. This book can’t be read as a standalone.
