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?
I got this book from my best friend for Christmas and only now got around to reading it. I wish I read it earlier as this book is absolutely incredible. I couldn’t put this book down. This story surprised me as I didn’t expect it to go the way it did. This is the first book in the alchemist chronicles and I will definitely pick the second book up when it gets released in September.
I’ve always enjoyed books that revolve around two people who’ve never met but have a connection. The way that the two authors did this was very creative and it made me end up wanting to know more about what both of the lead characters are doing. I can’t go into a lot of detail or I will spoil the book so I will talk about the characters now.
Taylor was an incredible protagonist who will do anything to reach her biggest goal. Due to this, she meets Sacha and their adventure begins.
Sacha was a really cool character as well. He can’t die until he turns eighteen and Taylor has to save him. I can’t talk much about them, but I love how their relationship grows as the book progresses and they will stop at nothing to keep each other safe.
This was an amazing start to a new series and I am really excited to get the next book. I wish I could get the book now. After reading this, I think I’m going to be thinking about this book for a long time. The good thing is that Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children should arrive tomorrow which I am really excited to read about.
I gave the Secret Fire a 5 out of 5 stars.
