From Goodreads:
French teen Sacha Winters can't die. He can throw himself off a roof, be stabbed, even shot, and he will always survive. Until the day when history and ancient enmities dictate that he must die. Worse still, his death will trigger something awful. Something deadly. And that day is closing in.

Taylor Montclair is a normal English girl, hanging out with her friends and studying for exams, until she starts shorting out the lights with her brain. She’s also the only person on earth who can save Sacha.

There’s only one problem: the two of them have never met. They live hundreds of miles apart and powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep them apart.

They have eight weeks to find each other.

Will they survive long enough to save the world?

The Secret Fire was one of my most anticipated reads of 2015. I have never read anything by either of these authors previously but after meeting CJ Daugherty at this years YALC I couldn't wait to read her books. I am such a big fan of Fantasy books that I knew that this one is the one that I needed to read. The Secret Fire absolutely blew me away.

Set in both England and France The Secret Fire follows two teens as they put together a mystery that links both of their families together. They must race against time in order to save both of their lives.

I absolutely loved every moment of this book. From the moment I started the book it was fast paced and action packed. I was hooked right from the start and I couldn't put it down. I absolutely loved both Taylor and Sacha and I couldn't read fast enough for need to know what was going to happen to them.

The Secret Fire has really shown me that I need to read the rest of the books by these two authors because they are just phenomenal authors. The Secret Fire utterly blew me away and I cannot wait to read the next instalment in the series and where the story is going to go from here.
