Review :

I am not sure myself if this is a warning or a recommendation to other readers. I guess it depends on your point of view. If you intend to read “The Secret Fire” by C.J. Daugherty be aware that it is filled with tons of cliché stuff. Is that bad ? well depends – many readers look for just that – they read a certain book… love it and try to copy the feeling they experienced when reading that book to as many other novels as possible. I admit – I read the Blurb and when I picked up this book I had a certain set of ideas what those clichés should be and they all became true, so honestly I was not disappointed because it was exactly what I wanted to read at that point. IF on the other hand you are looking for something new or fresh – this might not be your novel – even if certain aspects of the story were indeed fresh. The majority was good and solid BUT familiar plot. Anyway >I< can recommend this story as a good and solid read. So read the Blurb and if you like similar plot’s I am sure you will like this one as well.
