Mini-Book Review: Legacy by C.J Daugherty (Night School #2)


Goodreads Blurb: 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…

My Review: It was a relief to have so many of my “burning questions” answered in this book. I enjoyed reading Legacy more than Night School because there was a lot more “plot” to it. However, I was really disappointed to see that some relationships did not play out as I had expected. As a character, Allie proved to be smart, brave and resilient. She was very clever and she managed to saves herself a number of times through quick-thinking and instinct. Sylvain was one of my favorite characters because he has the courage to admit that he screwed up and try again. Another reason why I liked him was because he rescued Allie from the library fire that happens at the end of Night School. I didn’t like how Carter treated her in this book and I felt she deserved better. Overall, this book was very exciting and explored multiple complicated relationships with the maturity of a, well, young adult.

Rating: 4 stars
