Christi Daugherty

The second book in the hit five-part NIGHT SCHOOL series shows Allie, aware that her life is now part of a high-stakes game, joining Night School.  Sick and tired of being rescued, and aware that her life is now part of a high-stakes game she doesn’t fully understand, Allie joins Night School. Now the real work begins.  The Society combines relentless physical self-defence and survival training with strategy. Here students learn to live like the powerful executives, politicians and leaders of industry they will one day be.


Night School’s message is clear: You can rule the world but first you must give up your own life and live for the organisation.


Busy with training and classes Allie’s life is a whirlwind blowing so strong she doesn’t even think about the past. But on a brief visit home to London, her mother tells her that the mysterious Lucinda is Lucinda Meldrum – one of the most powerful women in the world. And she’s Allie’s grandmother. When Isabelle reveals that Nathaniel is her brother, and that he wants to take over Cimmeria and the entire organisation behind it, Allie finally understands what’s really at stake.
