Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. Her brother's run away from home. Her parents ignore her. And she's just been arrested. Again.

This time her parents have had enough. They send Allie to Cimmeria Academy - far away from her London friends. The school is beautiful, and filled with gorgeous, ultra-wealthy teens who travel by private jet, and were raised by nannies. Allie has never felt more of an outsider. Instead of hating boarding school though, Allie begins to feel happy. She's slowly making friends. And there's Carter, a brooding loner with whom she feels an instant connection. But when Allie is attacked late one night, the school suddenly begins to feel like a very dangerous place. Allie finds out that nothing at Cimmeria is what it seems. And that she is not who she thought she was.

What people are saying about Night School 

'Imagine a mixture of Hogwarts and Mallory Towers but filled with murder instead of magic. That is what you get. This book blew me away The truth behind Night School really amazed me and it is definitely something I haven't read before This is definitely not a book to read whilst you are busy, as you will find yourself cursing at your lack of time to finish it. A chilling, nerve racking, nail biting thriller that left me wanting more.' Serendipity Reviews 

'one of the best books I have read this year If you love C.L. Stone's (Ghost Bird and The Academy) series, you will enjoy reading Night School Genesis!' The Avid Reader 

'What a brilliant debut novel. I absolutely cannot wait to jump headfirst into the sequel. If you trust me at all, YOU WILL READ THIS.' Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me

'Night School is dramatic and full of great characters, the perfect blend of suspense and romance.' Sophie McKenzie 

'C.J. Daugherty does a brilliant job of keeping the truth just out of reach from the reader by offering many different, plausible possibilities. I love books that make me think about where the plot is going even though I never quite get it right. While it's fun to guess, it's more fun to be surprised' Pretty Books

'New series alert!! *flashing red light* This is the series to look out for... Cimmeria Academy (I need me somebody to tell me how to pronounce it!) has mystery, murder and some mayhem and boys, boys, boys!!(so very important, hee..hee) and of course the bitchy girl... An awesome start to this series.... my mind boggles where it will be going as there is mystery, mystery, mystery.' Novels on the Run Blog

'Let me be absolutely clear on this, Night School is pure awesome sauce, just not what you would have expected from the title. First of all, it's not some silly paranormal YA. More of a murder mystery with few good old conspiracy theories and secret societies thrown in. Secondly, can I just gush about Allie and Carter? *insert gushing now* I haven't read about such two gorgeous level-headed and mature teenagers since Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T.Michelle. Absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it to everyone! Nocturnal Book Reviews

The ending was fantastic and sad all at the same time, I was utterly gripped by the events that led to the last page... This was another amazing read filled with excitement, danger, laughs and a sprinkling of love. A perfect all-rounder.' Me, My Books and I 

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide... 

In the last year, Allie has 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 the brooding Carter West into her life hasn't hurt either...

 But the exclusive school's cloistered walls are about to prove more dangerous than Allie could ever have imagined. The students are and teachers are under threat and Allie's family, from her powerful grandmother to her missing brother, are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. And this time, no one is there to save her. This time, she's going to have to save herself...

What people are saying about Night School: Legacy 

'Just the other day I was sitting here, chatting with a friend and shamelessly making fun of boarding school books (with a few exceptions, of course), and now I am forced to eat my words. Or just add Night School to that very short list of exceptions. I adore Cimmeria Academy. I adore the idea behind it, I adore the teachers and I desperately want to be an advanced Night School student. (Only I'm not very athletic so that would never, ever work.) This series is a new favorite of mine and my expectations for the third book are sky high.' TheNocturnalLibrary.com

'Legacy is the amazing sequel to Night School, bringing you a story full of secrets, mysteries with a perfect amount of romance! C.J. Daugherty's writing will take you on a journey to unlock all these secrets, mysteries and the end will leave you breathless. Absolutely can't wait for the third book!' Forget Me Not Book Blog 

'I finished Night School: Legacy within a matter of hours. The thrilling, fast-paced story captivated my mind and would not unleash me until I had turned the very last page. The story, following the life of sparky Allie Sheridan within the beautiful walls of Cimmeria academy, yet again fulfilled my needs of adventure and romance, combined with my love of private and boarding school novels.' My Secret Book Obsession 

'I really loved Night School, with its secrets and creepy boarding school setting and with Legacy, everything just felt more. The risk of danger felt greater, the excitement was at a higher level, and because I knew these characters, I felt myself growing that much more emotionally invested. Legacy is a fantastic sequel and this series has quickly become one of my favourites!' Fluttering Butterflies

'I love the Night School series so much. It really is my favourite recent series and I really loved Fracture, the third book in the Night School series! I love the fast pace of both this novel and the entire series. Everything felt like it was on full-throttle and there's never a dull moment at Cimmeria Academy!' FlutteringButterflies.com

Cimmeria Academy's solid walls have protected the children of the British elite for centuries. But now those walls are beginning to crumble. And if they fall, Allie Sheridan knows nothing can save her.

A powerful and dangerous secret society - one that controls not just the school but the government, the media and corporations - is turning on itself. Allie's grandmother still clings to power but everyone knows her time at the top is ending. Next in line is Nathaniel, who killed Allie's friends. If he takes over, all is lost.

Panicked and angry, she pushes everyone away. She wants revenge. She wants justice. But some battles can't be won alone. Allie must learn who to trust. Or lose everything.

Fracture is the thrilling third book in the international bestselling Night School series.

What people are saying about Night School: Fracture

'If you've been waiting for answers about Night School and the organization, rest assured, answers you shall get. There were clues before and I had my suspicions, but in Fracture, the purpose of Night School becomes abundantly clear, and scarier than ever.' The Nocturnal Library

'With action from start to finish you never know what may be over the next page. You feel for the main character, Allie, throughout as she tries to grasp a greater understanding of whom she can trust around her and who has betrayed her. Easier said than done when almost all of her fellow Night School members could be to blame. Warning: Very addictive and you will put reading this book over everything else.' TheSprout.co.uk

'Fracture was a wonderful blend of mystery, action, romance and friendship. I'm dying to return to these characters and story, the fabulously creepy boarding school and to see where this series will go next!' FlutteringButterflies.com

'I quickly found myself immersed in the story and was swept along with the drama. I thought the story was an interesting one, with lots of action as well as a bit of a love conflict between Allie and two of her friends, Carter and Sylvain.' Novelicious.com

'This thrilling story of intrigue is like St Trinian's tinged with a murderous streak.' Closer

What readers are saying about The Secret Fire... 

'Pure awesome... There were moments when I laughed, moments where I gasped in surprise, and moments where I knew I could not read fast enough because I had to know what was going to happen next... My only complaint? That it ended and now I need to wait. I must know what happens next. I must!!!!' Series Tracker 

'Are you ready for a grip the edge of your seat-repeating mantra of OMG as you turn the pages eagerly? Looking for something with intensity but also something that leaves you begging for more??? Looking for a new fav??? YES. This book is all of what you need and so much more! Go Into This One Knowing. Best. Book. Ever.' Crossroad Reviews 

'This was incredible!... such a slow burn romance but the build-up had my heart beating out of my chest, the angst and suspense was killing me... This book was perfectly paced and the lack of info-dumping, love triangles and insta-love made for a perfect start to a new series. Switching from POV's from England and Paris and following the characters as they go from across countries was a great concept. With the addition of magic, action and adventure this book could really do no wrong in my eyes. There isn't a cliffhanger ending just the promise of lots more to come in the next installment which I'm now anxiously awaiting. I highly recommend this to fellow fantasy lovers who are looking for a brand new world to immerse themselves in, with great characters, a promising romance and a thrilling journey ahead.' Literary-ly Obsessed 

'I love this book! It was really great! I've always loved books that include Alchemy as its major fantasy core, I just think that it's such a fascinating 'science'! ... I read the first chapter, and I was completely swept into this amazing world! ... can't wait until the second book comes out, and to continue exploring this amazing story! Just Another Bookish Blog
