Night School: Legacy by C J Daugherty

A review by Elizabeth Manthos

Night School: Legacy is the sequel to C J Daugherty’s first novel Night School. After the aftermath of Allie’s summer semester at Cimmeria Academy, she returns for the school year, but not after an attempted kidnapping while being at home.

With Nathaniel still after her and being accepted into the elusive Night School group, Allie’s year is about to be turned upside down. With relationships changing, attacks happening and the rigorous training she’s undergoing in Night School, Allie’s world is about to change with an assignment with the club changing her relationships with the people in the exclusive group.

The love triangle between Carter, Allie and Sylvain is prominent as their relationships take a massive turn, leaving Allie heartbroken. The Ball is coming up and prominent members of society will be in attendance, including Lucinda Meldrum, the Chancellor and Allie’s long lost grandmother.

But nothing at Cimmeria Academy ever goes to plan.

This stunning sequel to Daughtery’s Night School enthralled me with the blossoming life of Allie Sheridan. With every single lie she’s been fed crumbling around her, she does remarkably well to stay such a strong female lead. I felt connected with her and felt her emotions throughout the whole novel.

The drama with the charismatic boys in the novel left me wanting to read more, to find out who she actually ends up with, to what happens to relationships when something dramatic happens.

The novel was very well written and kept me enthralled the entire time. It was a fantastic sequel and a fantastic continuation to Allie’s story. The story keeps you interested with the right amounts of twists and turns just when needed and the story flowed easily.

I highly recommend it to those who have read Night School; if you’re going to read Legacy, read Night School first.
