The Secret Fire - C J Daugherty + Carina Rozenfeld

So I have been waiting for this book for months now! I have to admit I'm an impatient person, And when I got accepted on NetGalley to get the PDF version of the book I was over the moon. I was also lucky to get a chance to attend the launch party for this book on Wednesday the 9th where I was able to get a physical copy of the book signed by both authors! The event itself was great! There was CHAMPAGNE and CAKEPOPS, how better can it get?! Plus both authors were absolutely lovely themselves. 

The book is about a boy named Sacha Winters and a girl names Taylor Montclair. Sacha can't die, guns? knifes? Deadly heights? nothing can kill him. Until this one day, where he can die, and his death will cause something awful. Something evil. Taylor is your average English girl, friends, dreams and a normal student life, that is until she realises she isn't normal, she can short out lights with her brain and is the only person who can save Sacha. The problem is that these two have never met and powerful forces are at work to keep it that way. Will they survive long enough to save the world?

I Loved this book. Seriously I did. I honestly couldn't guess what was going to happen next, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time reading this! I felt very sorry for Sacha, after finding out what was happening with him, I just wanted to pick him up and wrap him in bubble wrap. I found him very intriguing, his personality was very care-free towards life making the majority of what he did dangerous but as the book continued you saw that he was not totally care-free at all. His heart is full and he is strong and I loved that! Taylor reminded me of friends ive had with all the studying! It made me smile a lot and the whole wild hair situation? I FEEL YOU SISTER. My crazy blonde hair does whatever it wants! During the book Taylor had to change to adapt to the new life she now has and I think she did that amazingly. 

One thing I can say I LOVED about this book is that Taylor's powers were not just simply explained as "Magic". There was a scientific explanation for what was happening. This is how it was explained to Taylor and how I begun to understand myself. I found it very interesting and would love to see more science related information regarding the "Powers" 

I would give this book 5/5
