I have only read a handful of books in this genre, but I feel confident in saying that Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is among the most original! It is book 2 in a 3 book series, with the 3rd one not yet released. It’s about Deliah Nite, a shapeshifter living among humans in Sentinel City because she fled her own world in another dimension after being ordered to execution. Working with the authorities from time to time, Nite does what she can to cover up the presence of her own kind in the human world while helping to “solve” the most bizarre and gruesome cases. In this story, Nite tries to cover up and stop an impossible drug that’s causing people to blister horribly before spontaneously bursting into flames. It could be human derived, but Nite believes it might not be! This story was just as awesome as the first one! Schneider uses incredible detail, lots of humor, and provides you with non stop, page by page action! Not appropriate for younger readers! 5 stars!
Nite Fire: Chain Reaction is the second book of CL Schneider’s Nite Fire series. I would highly recommend that you go and read the first one, Nite Fire:Flashpoint, before you jump right into this one. That one really sets up the world that you are going to step in to. And it is a vivid one at that. I really enjoy the way that CL Schneider can bring to life the scene of the story so much so that I feel as if I am right there with the characters experiencing things firsthand. This is what brings me into these books and keeps me coming back, well that and the story is good too… That being said, I normally am not a shifter person. They are hard for me to get into because I just can’t see it as a feasible thing in my mind, even if I make believe. However, just as with the first one, Schneider manages to make the characters so realistic and relatable that you don’t really notice the shifter aspect as much and I was able to buy it.
In Chain Reaction we follow Dahlia as she and her partner work their way through a troubling case. Dead bodies are piling up and so are the questions, with no answers in sight, and the city is in disarray over it reasonably so. What will await her in the shadows as she sets out to figure out what is going on and how to put an end to it? It will be an adventure with many ups and downs to keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what will possibly come next. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series! Thanks for another great read CL Schneider!
Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire Series and just like the first book I was sucked in from page one and I couldn’t put it down. A new dangerous drug is on the street and Dahlia and Creed work together to find out who is putting it out there before it’s too late and secrets are thrown into the light.
This book is Suspenseful and has lots of twists and turns. Even though this is the second book, I think it can be read as a standalone. BUT I recommend reading them both because they’re really good.
Go get this one now!!
Chain Reaction was a great 4 star read and book two in the Nite Fire series.
I was once again pulled right in by the authors writing.
Dahlia and Creed are back and are working as a team, they find themselves on a new case where bodies are being found burned up. Will they be able to find answers before it’s too late?
There is also a very dangerous drug that has some unusual side effects. Dahlia is trying to find out who is feeding the drugs to people before it’s too late. Can she keep the paranormal secret from getting out?
I don’t want to go into too much detail because there is so much to this great read. There are several twist and turns that added a great element to the story. All the secondary characters were great, they all added a great element to the story. Dahlia and Creed are great together, they mesh so well and I love it. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who the culprit was. If you like lots of action, suspense, and paranormal reads this is the series for you. This is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I look forward to reading more from this series/author.
Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is the second book in the series. I recommend reading this in order and not as a standalone. The story continues with Dahlia Nite and her partner Alex Creed investigating mysterious deaths that are not discerning of whom they affect. This book did not let me down. I was drawn in and did not want to put it down until I finished. The story and the characters are well done. I really like Dahlia and that she is strong and smart but also has a soft heart. She is a great character. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Nite Fire Flash Point by C. L. Schneider
Dahlia was a warrior, a dragon that put fear into you with just her name. Until she is branded a traitor. Emotions are a foreign thing to Dahlia. The story was intriguing and violent. The thought of what could be other worlds next to us is kind of creepy. I liked that the author made her female lead so strong I just didn’t like how she kept pushing people away. There wasn’t very much character development but Dahlia did grow with every loss. I definitely liked the story for its details. The way the author described the dragons was scary and beautiful. It also was nice not to have so much focused on the main characters love life. Though I wish that the relationship with other characters was better developed. Also the reason for the deaths was just meh is wasn’t what I thought it would be.

If anyone can tell the difference between monsters and humans, it’s Dahlia Nite. For nearly a century, she’s hunted one to protect the other; safeguarding humanity from the creatures that slip through the torn veil between the worlds—creatures like her. But the lines are blurring. As people begin mutating and combusting on the streets, Dahlia realizes a strange affliction has descended upon Sentinel City. The mysterious ailment strikes all walks of life, from the posh, high-end nightclub district to the homeless community. Its victims, driven to random acts of savagery, are drawing attention too fast to cover up.
Assigned to the case, Dahlia and her human partner, Detective Alex Creed, investigate the deaths. But all they have are questions and bodies, and a public on the verge of panic. Working behind the scenes with her self-appointed sidekick, Casey Evans, Dahlia struggles to discover what, or who, is behind the alarming transformations. As the violence spreads and the mystery unfolds, she wonders: are the victims still human? Were they ever?
Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire Series.

Nite Fire: Flash Point is the first book in C. L. Schneider’s new series. It is a four star novel. Even though paranormal fantasy is not a normal genre for me to read, I still found this novel moved me and made me continue reading to find out what was going to happen next. The author was able to real me in with her excellent storytelling and realistic fiction. Have you ever wondered if there were “others” living among us? I know I have. Dahlias able to blend in with the humans because she is half human and half dragon. Although she was raised by the dragons, she has since flew the coup and has hidden herself among the humans on earth. She finds it necessary to try to disguise the “others” existence by having the humans see something else and cover up their crimes enough that they look like they could have been committed by a human. Only problem is that now it might be getting to be too much for her and the people looking for her are getting closer to bringing her back home.
Review by @julie-lounello
So very impressed! Anyone can tell you that fantasy is so not my genre to read, but I was intrigued and now I’m very impressed. Nite Fire: Flash Point is book 1 in the series by C. L. Schneider. This book follows Dahlia Nite who is a shifter that worked for Queen Naalish in the world of Dimera. Dahlia is half human and half dragon. Queen Naalish strips her of title of Executioner and sentences her to be executed herself. Obviously, Dahlia is a fighter so she flees to the human world. There she travels from place to place where she doesn’t stay very long. Essentially, she fights what is lurking in the shadows to stay alive. She ends up back in the town that she continues to return to because it was the one place that she truly loved. Now she is helping the police to solve a crime. This book was pretty amazing in the sense that the author sucks you in from the beginning and keeps you there the entire book! Not only is the storyline great but so is the way that the author describes things. She makes you feel like you are truly a part of the story. I do recommend this book and actually cannot wait to read the second book in the series. This book is about a strong woman heroine and her ability to continue to fight. You will not be disappointed.

Flash Point is Book 1 in the Nite Fire series.
Extremely descriptive starting from page one. It’s about Dehlia Nite whom is a lyrriken. Lyrrikens are Shapeshifters transforming between human and dragon.
Nite is an empath. She is a “traitor” in her own world and has lived in the human world for 97 years . She uses her ability to work at keeping the human world safe and seperate from the shape-shifters world. Often working with the police, she investigates
cases involving possible lyrriken, and gives the human world a plausible explanation for what happened while covering up what actually happened. At the same time as investigating the actual why. This book has a lot of gore and blood. There’s a bit of foul language. Some nudity and some laughs. Just when you think it can’t get any crazier, enter the twists! This book was great from beginning to end and I can’t wait to read the second! 5 stars
