Slash & Burn (Nite Fire, #4)Slash & Burn by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was better than the second and third! I definitely didn’t see a lot of the things coming that happened. What happens after you rescue your best friend/sidekick’s sister and barely survive the last visit Drimera? Well for Dahlia instead of things going up things go down. She finds out the truth about someone she has known for a very long time and even considered him a mentor. But what do you do with the information? What do you when you find someone who is close with your partner but they believe him to be dead? What do you do when the sister you just rescued willing goes back to Drimera with Aidric and Alex Creed? And to top it all off all hell breaks loose on their world. Welcome to the apocalypse! This book had me hooked with every twist and turn. I’m so glad I stuck with series and if there is a 5th book I will be reading.

Smoke and Mirrors (Nite Fire 3) by C. L. Schneider – Review by Starri Howard

Smoke & Mirrors (Nite Fire #3)Smoke & Mirrors by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Secrets are a dragon’s best friend. Deception is a close second. Half-dragon shape-shifter Dahlia Nite lives undetected among the humans. Walking in two worlds, belonging in neither, she wraps herself in a shroud of lies to hide in plain sight. But nothing stays hidden forever. When dismembered bodies of multiple species are dumped on the riverbank, the case falls to Dahlia and Detective Alex Creed. Backed by Sentinel City’s new task force, the pair finds themselves urged to find answers. Bouncing from one crime scene to the next, they hunt for a clear motive in a murky sea of conflicting evidence. Already on edge from the recent string of unexplained crimes, the city begins to unravel. Drowning in missing creatures, slaughtered remains, masked men – and the search for her best friend/sidekick’s missing sister. Seeking answers, she uses her empathic abilities and uncovers something deeper and more threatening than a simple serial killer’s web. As the dots connect and worlds collide, she struggles to shield her friends from the truth. But secrets can be deadly. And Dahlia’s not the only one who keeps them.

Smoke & Mirrors is the third book in the Nite Fire series.
It isn’t holding my attention like I hope it would but I’m committed to finishing the series to know how the complete story unravels.

Slash & Burn (Nite Fire, #4)Slash & Burn by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I see this series as one of the wildest rides of my reading life. And now, as we tunnel below what we thought was rock bottom, the city is still in peril, and Dahlia is dealing with possibly the most loaded metaphorical plate that I’ve ever seen. After all, being asked to solve everything while barely having gotten out of her last scrape alive tends to weigh heavily on the mind and body. There might be a day where our heroine gets to have some peace, but today is not that day. In the meantime, grab a copy and help cheer her on!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Whether we are human or shapeshifter, secrets can be our best friend, or our worst enemy. For Dahlia, it seems as though she straddles the thin line between those distinctions, and that fact is the most prominent in this book as she tackles yet another wave of unspeakable crimes against the very species that she lives to protect. It seems that, even with a partner, it may turn out to go far too deep for our favorite heroine to tackle. Can her empathy give her the answers that she needs? Who else is keeping secrets, and what are the consequences? Read to find out!

Flash Point (Nite Fire Book 1) by C. L. Schneider – Review by Victoria Mashburn

Flash Point (Nite Fire, #1)Flash Point by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a sucker for a good fantasy novel, and this first installment of the Nite Fire series definitely shows promise and establishes a great foundation of the heroine and her journey for all of the books that follow this one. I adored the idea of a shapeshifting assassin from another world, and I loved the fact that she has a soft spot for humans. Her life is never boring, by default, but that leaves her kept constantly on her toes. To see what I mean, crack the book open and experience the adventure for yourself! Also, be prepared to need to order the next installment immediately upon completion.

Slash & Burn (Nite Fire, #4)Slash & Burn by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shape, shifting dragons, linked worlds and an imminent apocalyptic virus form the basis of this epic tale. This is the fourth in the saga although its easy to follow if you have not read the others. Dahlila, the protagonist, is easy likable with her spunky, brave, determined attitude. She cares about others and has a strong sense of right and wrong despite being brought up being taught the opposite and this really comes across with the author’s writing. I really enjoyed the character development playing out across the novel. The scene setting is brilliant I could really imagine myself in the Nite Fire universe. Looking forward to the next instalment.

Nite Fire: Slash & Burn by C. L. Schneider. These books just keep getting better. This author knows how to take readers on a ride they won’t soon forget. From start to finish I had a hard time living in the real world because all I wanted was to sink into the pages of this book. The characters are complex and truly unique, they bring this story to life so effortlessly. The storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed. I don’t want to give anything away so all I’ll say is go one click this entire series trust me you won’t regret it. Four big stars and highly recommended! Can’t wait to see where the author takes readers next.

Slash & Burn (Nite Fire, #4)Slash & Burn by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, I have listened to the first book in this series on Audiobook, and I was thoroughly impressed by that, now, by no logic that I can ever explain I have hopped, skipped, and jumped to book 4. Though missing out quite a big portion of the story so far, I have got to say that Schneider does an amazing job of getting you up to speed, I didn’t feel lost and got the sense that the book could stand alone if it absolutely had to. Still, I would recommend reading the series in order, at least to limit any potential confusion.
Badass Dhalia Nite is back, kicking ass and taking names. As always have got to love the character, she is witty, sassy, and self-assured, and also not an idiot, which is so nice to read. Doing what she does best, Dahlia keeps the streets safe from all manner of nasty beasties. But she notices that something isn’t quite right, with monsters pouring in from, what feels like, every available angle, she fears that she and her new team may not be enough to stop the destruction.
I really enjoyed this book, and it was interesting to see how far Dahlia had developed, even though through my own stupidity I’d missed out on half of it. Gotta say that I absolutely adored this read and would recommend it to anyone that loves a fair whack of action and mystery. Schneider just knows how to drop you into a scene, making everything so vivid, it feels like you are actually there. She is a fantastic writer and I look forward to reading more of her work.
