The Secret Fire by C.J. Daugherty & Carina Rozenfeld
Taylor Montclair is a regular girl from the quiet backwater of Woodbury, England. Sacha Winters is a darkly mysterious boy from the City of Lights - Paris, France. While Taylor's focussed on her dream of attending Oxford University, school couldn't be further from Sacha's mind . . . Sacha knows exactly when he's going to die. Because he's done it before. On the appointed day, Sacha's time will run out. And his death will fulfil an ancient destiny that could unleash chaos and catastrophe. Taylor is the only person who can save him. Neither of them knows that yet. Because they haven't even met. Hundreds of miles and a body of water separate them. Deadly forces will stop at nothing to keep them apart. They have eight weeks to find each other and unravel an ancient web of mystery and danger. The clock starts NOW.

My review - This story was fantastic.
I really think C.J and Carina worked really well together in writing this story. It went together perfectly and the story just flowed.
In this story we meet Taylor from the UK, she is doing everything she can to get into Oxford when she finishes school. She is a good girl and a straight A student. Sacha is from France, he is a drop-out and hangs out with some dodgy characters. Sacha knows he is going to die but the only thing he doesn't know is that Taylor is the one who can save him.
I love how we get to read about Taylor in the UK and Sacha in France. It really pulled the story together for me with this.
This story had me gripped from the very beginning. I read it one sitting as I could not put it down at all. The book went at a very nice pace and I enjoyed every second of it. It had a lot of suspense and left on a cliffhanger that had me frustrated, but in a good way, I have no patient to wait for the next book.
I really cannot wait for the next book in this series. C.J and Carina have truly written a brilliant story and I cannot wait to see where they go with the rest of the series!
