The Secret City by C.J. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld

Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages: 368
Publisher: Atom 
Released: 1st of September 2016 

'Remember: Demons lie'

Locked away inside the fortified walls of Oxford's St Wilfred's College, surrounded by alchemists sworn to protect them, Taylor and Sacha are safe from the Darkness. For now.

But time is short. In seven days Sacha will turn 18, and the ancient curse that once made him invincible will kill him, unleashing unimaginable demonic horror upon the world.

There is one way to stop it.

Taylor and Sacha must go to where the curse was first cast - the medieval French city of Carcassonne - and face the demons.

The journey will be dangerous. And monsters are waiting for them.

But as Darkness descends on Oxford, their choice is stark. They must face everything that scares them, or lose everything they love. 

What I Have to Say 

I can't believe this was only a duology! It was over way too quick for such a great, great series. C.J Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld just blend so seamlessly on the page leaving gorgeous writing to combine perfectly with wonderful, gripping plot. 

The ending definitely didn't disappoint. It fit perfectly with the rest of the plot, showing a conclusion that the reader has never thought of but that isn't conceived in any way. It was the right solution and fit in nicely to the rules and plot that had been layed out.

I hope these two authors write together again, because they work so well together. 

My thanks go to Netgalley and Atom for providing me with this copy for review.
