Dahlia Nite. She is everything one would hope for in a strong, heroine role. She has a snarky sense of humour, she’s strong, fierce, independent, and smart. Her weaknesses, of course, include the fact that she is an Empath, though, many would argue that’s a positive as well. It allows for her to feel all that needs to be felt, to power her through her ‘assignments’ and see right from wrong. The connections she builds with those who cross her path, and who need her, is admirable. Our lady is considered a ‘traitor’ in her homeland, and she has spent the last several decades trying to do right by the memories that haunt her and does a kick butt job at it too.
This novel was very unlike any other that I have read as of late and was much more involved. I found myself enthralled by the plot line, the twists and turns, and the way it has the reader falling into it, as though one was watching a movie. I think each and everyone of us has problems fitting into the ‘norm,’ whatever that may be, and want to know that we have someone looking out for us. Luckily for those within this novel, they have that in her. She clearly struggles with not feeling as though she fits into either the human world, or the Lyrriken world. Incredible story, characters, and world building. I will be reading more of the Nite Fire series and following our lovely heroine in her future endeavors. Well done!
