Bel Reviews: C J Daugherty's - "Legacy" (Night School #2)
I reviewed Night School #1 back in early 2012. So to receive book #2, Legacy, to review made me smile.
Goodreads blurb reads …
“In the last year, Allie’s survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It’s the one place she’s felt she belongs. And the fact that it’s brought dark-eyed Carter West into her life hasn’t hurt either. But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could have imagined. The students and faculty are under threat, and Allie’s family – from her mysterious grandmother to her runaway brother – are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart…”
Allie has done a little growing up since the dramas at the end of book 1. There are fewer secrets and her relationships are becoming more complex and strained. She is inducted into the mysterious ‘Night School’, and things progress from there. The conspiracy theory feel of Legacy was something I found quite appealing.
Daugherty’s writing style has hit it’s stride. Between character story arcs and the intensity of the suspense, the thought that this series will most likely only run on for 1 or 2 more books makes me pout a little.
I’m not entirely a fan of books set in a boarding school, however I do have a few exceptions. This series would be one of the few.
Fracture, book 3 of Night School is due out some time in 2013. Looks like it’ll be one not to miss.
