Look, I didn’t
want to be a half-blood.
reading this because you think you might be one, my advice
is: close this book right now. Believe whatever lie your mom
or dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal
half-blood is dangerous. It’s scary. Most of the time, it
gets you killed in painful, nasty ways.
If you’re a
normal kid, reading this because you think it’s fiction,
great. Read on. I envy you for being able to believe that
none of this ever happened.
But if you
recognize yourself in these pages – if you feel something
stirring inside – stop reading immediately. You might be one
of us. And once you know that, it’s only a matter of time
before they sense it too, and they’ll come for you.
Don’t say I
didn’t warn you.
