In the last year, Allie's survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It's the one place she's felt she belongs. And the fact that it's brought dark-eyed Carter West into her life hasn't hurt either. But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerou ...more

4.5 stars ... And wow!
It’s no secret that I didn’t much care for Night School. While I thought there was nothing wrong with it technically, it just didn’t leave much of an impression. But I’ve been known to change my mind before, and I’ve changed my mind this time. Everything C.J. Daugherty failed to do with Night School, she did with Legacy, and then some. The characters were more memorable, the plot was absolutely thrilling, and even the love triangle wasn’t as obnoxious as last time. Quite th
Omg I just love love love this series!!!

ΑΠΛΑ ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ! Απο τα βιβλία που δεν σταματάς να διαβάζεις μεχρι την τελευταία σελίδα. Αγωνία, συναίσθημα, δολοπλοκίες .. Περιμένω πως και πως το τρίτο βιβλίο.
Γιώτα Παπαδημακοπούλου
Το "Νυχτερινό Σχολείο" της C.J. Daugherty το οποίο και κυκλοφόρησε λίγους μήνες νωρίτερα από τις εκδόσεις Μεταίχμιο, ήταν -το λιγότερο- μια μεγάλη και συνάμα, μια εξαιρετικά ευχάριστη έκπληξη για μένα. Παίρνοντάς το στα χέρια μου, και παραπλανημένη από το εξώφυλλο και την μυστηριώδη περίληψη, είχα πιστέψει πως επρόκειτο για την αρχή μιας ακόμα σειράς εφηβικής φανταστικής λογοτεχνίας. Ξεκινώντας να διαβάζω, λοιπόν, και όσο η ιστορία προχωρούσε, αμφέβαλλα όλο και περισσότερο για το ότι ίσχυε κάτι ...more

Nachdem mich Band 1 so geflasht hat, musste ich für die ganze Teenie-Jungs-Hin-und-Her Geschichte einen Stern abziehen. Ansonsten hat es mir zusammen mit Allie in Cimmeria wieder gut gefallen. Ein paar Hintergründe sind aufgedeckt worden, zur Night School und den "Bösen". Auch über Allies Familie erfährt man etwas mehr.
Allerdings nicht so richtig viel. Es tun sich wieder Fragen auf, aber es gibt ja noch 3 Bände! Mit Band 3 werde ich auch direkt weitermachen. Ein Hoch auf den KindleDeal letztens.
OK, so before I go on my praise fest I just have to say that this was really a slow-starter for me.... I think it was pretty much my fualt, becuase I had to mentally rewind and remember the last book. But, once I got my head in the game, it was on like Donkey Kong! I fell back in love with Allie, Rachel and (especially) Sylvain. Carter drove me insane and I will just say I was happy when the inevitable happened!

If I wasn't clear enough up there, I am 100% team Sylvain... but I typically pick the

Just as amazing as book 1, if not better!

Legacy begins following the aftermath of Night School, with Allie on the run from people trying to hurt her. She immediately returns to Cimmeria, but because of everything that has already happened, she, quite rightly, is confused on who she can trust, and who is out to hurt her. The events of Legacy ramp up the action we already saw in Night School, making the series much more enjoyable and full of suspense.

I quickly fell in love with C.J Daugherty debut novel, Night School. It has everything I adore in an escape; mystery, action, romance and thrilling characters. It also has this brilliant quality of being crazy consuming! I couldn't wait to see what Daugherty had in store for these characters next and I'm happy to say that Legacy turned out to be another favorite.

Legacy starts off with Allie on the run from men in suits who are chasing her through the London streets. Soon she finds refug

"Le cœur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point."

Everything changes for Allie.
She enters the Night School. She finds new friends and loses old. She finds out that the Cimmeria Academy has more secrets than it seems and that Nathaniel has his people everywhere.
In the Night School Allie has to learn to understand when people lie and how they do it, but she does not quite like it because knowing that her closest friends lie to her is painful.

So does Sylvain. So does Carter. And even Allie

Oh mann was n Ende...
I liked it as much as I liked the first one! Very interesting from the first page! I have to be honest that I want to know more about this secret organization because I believe there is a huge secret that we don't know but I can wait if all the books are as good as this one. Of course, we have some teenage problems as well but it's only logical! Of course I am going to read the next one!

Esta continuación no ha sido tan increíble como el primer libro, pero igual disfrute mucho. Muy Adictiva, se lee de un tirón (Y la autora "aprendió" a no darle vueltas a cosas innecesarias). Que ha satisfecho mi lado romántico (Ya no se ni de que lado estoy) y me ha dejado con muchas ganas de leer el siguiente libro.

I don't like love triangles *pouts*. Even if they're well done, which this one is, it was still painful. It felt very real and I guess that's how things go but still... :-(

As for the rest...almost as awesome as book 1. :) I loved how you never knew who to trust.

Night School was easily one of my favourite reads of 2012, and although Legacy isn't quite as good, I still found myself loving it. Daugherty's writing is addictive as always, and you'll pass a large handful of hours reading this without even realising it. Upon starting, I immediately connected with the characters I loved so much again and it was like the year-long wait never existed.

When Allie Sheridan went back to London for the holidays, she di

I'm pissed with some things Allie did in this book.... And this love triangle between Allie, Carter and Sylvain is getting on my nerves.... I also don't know why people put this series in the paranormal category when it has nothing to do with it.... Mystery?? Yes... Something from the fantasy world??? Absolutely no way...
I'm still curious about where this story goes and how it will end, so I'm keep reading... For how long??? That's debatable....

Dios, me ha encantado como la primera vez que lo leí. NECESITO continuar con esta historia !
La historia se pone cada vez mejor !
I will start my review by saying - AMAZING! This book is so amazing. I'm sure the third one in the series will be just as good. I just hope we don't have to wait too long.

I couldn't get into it in the beginning because it's been a year since i'v read the first one Night School (Night School, #1) by C.J. Daugherty, and i found it sometimes hard to remember who is who. But as i read throughout the book, i started to recognized those who i forgotten. Thank god for that! It was much more less confusing.

I'v waited so long for book 2 to come out, a
I really enjoyed Night School so I was excited to get my hands on a copy of the sequel Legacy and couldn't wait to see what would happen next in the story. After the revelations made at the end of the first book I was really interested to see how things would play out for Allie now she had learnt some of her family secrets. She certainly had an unusual introduction to life at Cimmeria Academy over the summer and the start of the new year looked set to be just as explosive. I can't fault the open ...more

Το «νυχτερινό σχολείο» ήταν για μένα μια πολύ ευχάριστη έκπληξη καθώς δεν περίμενα να μου αρέσει τόσο πολύ, πόσο μάλλον να θέλω να συνεχίσω και με τα επόμενα της σειράς. Το δεύτερο βιβλίο λοιπόν ήταν για μένα ακόμη μια έκπληξη, μιας και ήταν το ίδιο καλό με το πρώτο.

Oh my brain hurts! This second installment of the Night School series was beyond entertaining, but has left me with so many unanswered questions! My head is spinning from everything we did learn and begging for more answers.

Legacy starts off with Allie being chased and let me tell you my heart was pounding! She of course gets away and for her safety she goes to live with her friend Rachel until school starts. When it does start things don't get any easier for Allie. She is behind her Ni

Meine Meinung:
Nachdem mir der erste Teil "Du darfst niemanden trauen" so gut gefallen hat, musste ich natürlich direkt weiter mit Teil 2 machen und auch der hat mir wieder gut gefallen.
Der 2. Teil knüpft direkt an Teil 1 an, allerdings bekommt man auch immer kurze Rückblicke, falls der erste Teil schon länger her ist.
Das Buch startet ziemlich rasant und mit viel Action.
Es ist in der akutorialen Erzählperspektive geschrieben, was wirklich mal erfrischend war, da Jugendbücher sonst meistens in d

Ναι, και το δεύτερο βιβλίο κυλάει λιιιιίγο πιο αργά απ' οτι θα επιθυμούσα, επίσης τι παίζει με την Άλι και τα αγόρια της; Παρ' ολα αυτά είναι πολύ καλογραμμένο και πολύ ιδιαίτερο για να μην πω οτι το απόλαυσα!

Das Buch beginnt rasant und hochspannend, mit einer wilden Verfolgungsjagd! Allie ist auf der Flucht vor vier geheimnisvollen Fremden in dunklen Anzügen, und diese Szenen zeigen sie von ihrer besten Seite: intelligent, entschlossen, mutig und einfallsreich wie eine junge Geheimagentin - geradezu geboren für die Night School. Oder?

Auch in diesem Band muss sich Allie in der Umgebung der geheimnisvollen Eliteschule Cimmeria behaupten, und auch wenn sie sich inzwischen besser dort auskennt, kann sie
