But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could've imagined. The students, and faculty, are under threat and Allie's family - from her mysterious grandma to her runaway brother - are at the centre of the storm.
Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart . . .
Allie is back for her second year at Cimmeria Academy, and after witnessing one murder, and a fire that nearly destroyed both her and the school, things have certainly been dramatic. Thankfully Carter has been the rock she can rely on, but that was until Sylvian saved her life at the end of book one. Have her feelings now changed towards her ex-boyfriend, and how will Carter react to this?
Cimmeria Academy is back in full swing, with all the same students as at the end of book one. Jo is still a touch flighty, and Allie has to tread carefully to ensure that she doesn't go off the rails again, and Katie is still, quite frankly, a mean girl, determined to get Allie into as much trouble as possible.
The threat of Nathaniel, coming on top of Gabe's betrayal are still high on the agenda, but then Allie discovers the school legacy that she didn't know existed - in the form of her grandmother, a woman she has never even met. Is this why Nathaniel and his crew are so keen to get her out of the way?
I enjoyed Night School: Legacy as much as the first book in the series. The characters are still as fully formed as in book one, and you really warm to them, or not, in the case of Katie! The menage a trois between Carter, Sylvian and Allie continues; who will she choose, and is she doing the right thing by following her heart or her head? And most importantly of all, now Gabe is out of the Academy, just who is working on the inside for Nathaniel, and will we find out before it is too late?! I'm ready to start book three....
