The Secret Fire Review + Author Event

The-Secret-Fire-Final.jpg

Where do I start?

The Secret Fire is an amazingly written, YA dystopia book by two fabulous authors; C.J. Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld, an award winning French author. The two whom I met at a Hatchards book launch event in London. The two collectively collaborated to produce The Secret Fire. The Secret Fire is a story where Taylor Montclair and Sasha Winters race against time to conquer fate.

Personally, I liked reading the book like I really really enjoyed reading it and I just really wanted to get to the end of the book. Like you do with all books but towards the end of the book I realised something, I just really wanted to know the end. Naturally, like others but this book was different. The problem I realised, when I was ¾ down, was that I didn’t feel as much emotion as I usually do (being a very emotional person). The book hadn’t made me cry yet, it didn’t make me utterly scared or frightened to death about what was to come, yes it made me smile at times but didn’t make me want to hug the book and never let go.

Don’t get me wrong, it was interesting, very, very interesting and I was so very intrigued by the book. Knowledge was my craving, emotion there was a lack of. But I guess I didn’t mind that as I hadn’t realised until I was almost done with the book.

The finality left me helpless. And yearning for more.

Immediately, I tweeted C.J Daugherty asking if there was a sequel and was so grateful for her reply.

“@SiredHybridxx YES. 😀 The Secret City comes out next year.”

I am now holding onto hope for The Secret City and I am absolutely excited for the second part.

On a final note, the book launch event was incredible! Meeting both authors was a pleasure and being first in line to get my book signed was a complete delight. I received a Secret Fire tote bag and cake pop which was insanely wonderful, so thank you to the organisers and the authors.
