for anyone interested in reading published books about half human characters, here is an excellent book by one of my favorite Authors- Bruce Coville.
this is a collection of short stories by several authors, but it compiled and edited by him, and he has a story in there, and it's pretty good.
Half-Human is the title and the summary is as follows
A girl who hears the sea amongst the busy streets of Manhattan. A princess born with the strength to clutch a sword hilt. A winged boy who cannot fly. In these stories, the kind where trees can become men and girls wake up with snakes for hair, people are not always what they seem. But they still must discover who they are.
