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?
First of all, let me just say this book is absolutely incredible. A major well done to C.J Daugherty and Carina Rozenfeld for delivering such a stellar start to an obvious beautiful series.
Typically, I don’t like co-written series as I usually find that the authors styles of writing conflict and the story becomes jumbled. Well C.J and Carina have converted me guyss, I can not describe enough how amazing this book actually is.
Sacha Winters lives in Paris and comes from a family who is cursed: Every first-born son will die on his 18th birthday and not a day before. With only weeks until his birthday Sacha’s English teacher urges him to get in touch with a girl from England for some online tutoring. Taylor is a straight A student from England whose dream is to study at Oxford, so when the opportunity came to earn some extra credit by tutoring English to a French boy (which is sure to look great on her Oxford application), she jumps for it. The only problem is Sacha is the worst student eve. He’s rude and arrogant .But, Sacha and Taylor’s ‘meeting’ was no accident, they are connected and could be key to saving each other.
In terms of character development, Taylor wasn’t your usual stereotypical ‘geek’ that usually becomes annoying after the first few chapters… She was funny, smart and vulnerable, yet carried herself with such grace that she quickly became one of my favorite protagonists. Sacha was my kind of character… He was sarcastic yet sweet. Strong yet so loving. Words can’t describe how much I LOVE Sacha and Taylor’s relationship, it was such a lovely thing to watch develop and I literally spent half the time counting down until they met face to face.
This book was suspenseful, fun and adventurous. It was everything I love about a book all in one, I can not thank the authors enough for writing such an amazing story. I think it is pretty obvious that I would recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!!!!!
