The Secret Fire By C.J. Daugherty&Carina Rozenfeld-A Book Review||❤

The Secret Fire
By C.J. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld
Rating: 5/5 stars

*received in exchange for an honest review*
French teen Sacha Winters can't die. He can throw himself off a roof, be stabbed, even shot, and he will always survive. Until the day when history and ancient enmities dictate that he must die. Worse still, his death will trigger something awful. Something deadly. And that day is closing in.

Taylor Montclair is a normal English girl, hanging out with her friends and studying for exams, until she starts shorting out the lights with her brain. She’s also the only person on earth who can save Sacha.

There’s only one problem: the two of them have never met. They live hundreds of miles apart and powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep them apart.

They have eight weeks to find each other.

Will they survive long enough to save the world?

OH MY GOSH. That is the only way to describe how I felt after I read this book. I was mindblown at the start and then the end just resurrected me then blew me up again. I was wondering where the rest of the book was, clinging onto the last words then sitting in silence for  a couple of minutes drunk on the awesomeness. If you could jump into my kindle and read the notes I made you would realise the impact of this book such as when Taylor's boyfriend was saying:
"Im the most popular guy at this school"-lol get a life m8
I'm not kidding when I say that I actually wrote that down when I was reading the book. Don't worry though, this book is not a high school drama where everybody is self centred

As the synopsis does say this book follows the lives if two characters Taylor and Sacha two teenagers with incredible abilities and they don't know why they can do such amazing things. Sacha is a lazy French teenager who turns up to school once in a blue moon, wears all black and can't die. Taylor is your high achieving student who is set for Oxford, dates none other than golden athletic boy of the school and weird things have been happening to her lately. Little do these two people know is that they rely on each other and together they have to save the world. The only problem is that they have never met.

What I really liked about the story was the progression of it and how as the reader could slowly see how these characters are as people. I enjoyed how, as much as it aggravated me in a good way as I wanted more and more after I had actually finished the book! I can't even explain how much I love it because I was squealing whenever  one thing happened and I sat there with my mouth is an 'O' shape and things progressed.

I loved how each chapter was in two characters pointe of view and how the book was set in two different countries. We as the audience did learn about the characters but not too much was given away about them and loads of things remained a mystery. I was also able to learn more about the outskirts of Paris and how people in Taylor's school behaved and I felt like a fly on the wall l, tuning into each of there stories.

I'm a bit out of practice from writing reviews so sorry if this one is utter crap. I might have to start blogging only once a week or getting a co-blogger because I am extremely busy at the moment with hell (school) which is keeping me away from blogging as much as I would like to.

Keep Reading,


  1. Ooh, this sounds like an incredible read Naomi, I'm a massive fan of serendipity type storylines and where the characters have never met, but already share so much in common. Spanning several countries is just a bonus. Wonderful review Naomi (and you're not out of practice) I'm really excited to grab a copy soon too. Good luck with finding a coblogger and with school <3

  2. I really wanted to read this, and your review has just reminded to put it on my to buy list! :)
