Read on to see what Lesley, Ellen and Tasha thought of Night School by C. J. Daugherty! If you'd like to see more reviews from The Atomics, click here.
Night School actually ended up being a surprisingly good book because when I read the first chapter, I thought that the book would be rather boring and that it would be just about a troubled teenager. But two chapters later, I was hooked! I just could not put it down. Night School is a dark(-ish) fantasy book with a reasonable dollop of romance and I like to think of it like Fallen meets House of Night – just without the angel wings and really cool supernatural powers.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and as much as I would like to recommend to anyone, I definitely think that it’s a girl book but if you like House of Night and other books like that, certainly give it a go! This book was a fantastic read and I’m hoping that a sequel will follow this book.
WOW! I WAS WRONG about this book. At first I thought it was going to be another teen monster romance but no. It is now my favourite book of all time!
In my opinion it is literary art, C.J Daughertry kept me guessing right to the end. The plot twists and turns in different directions and you find yourself unsure and at times a little scared for the main character.
There were also times where I melted into my seat at all the spicy romance which was just what I wanted to read. I won't give away any of the plot but I will say that if you love adventure, romance, crime and late nights then definitely read this novel. I read it in about two days and found it nearly impossible to put down. It is totally addictive and leaves you wanting more. I 100% recommend this book for boys and girls to read, oh and girls be prepared to fall in love!
Night School is C.J. Daugherty’s first novel. As debuts go – it’s quite something!
Allie is a troubled teenager with serious issues. She’s been arrested three times in the last year and her parents have had enough. They’ve sent her to a school that Allie’s never heard of – Cimmeria Academy – where everyone is far from the ordinary.
The story has a slow, confusing start with a lot of questions being asked. Towards the middle the plot gathers pace, as the heroine begins separating the truth from what feels like an endless reel of lies. I felt that the story had great potential, but ended on a cliff-hanger, with many questions unanswered.
