Nite Fire: Smoke And Mirrors Book 3 – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur.

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

Dahlia Nite is back to up her old tricks again and this time, she is chasing a banshee through the streets of Sentinel City, something very unusual must have brought it there, but after she and her Sidekick Casey Evans take it out and they succeed despite its best efforts to kill them in return, but no sooner than they are done that they are called in to another gruesome scene at the riverbank, a lot of body parts have been uncovered by the recent storms and not all of them are human, neither are the bits of tanned skin they find at the scene either, but it isn’t just an animal attack, there are also precision cuts where the parts have been removed and it is in a place where nobody really goes and hasn’t done for many years, but when they are called over to a nearby sewer where there are more body parts floating around, the two decide to go into the tunnels and take a look around.

What they find there looks like a converted jail cell, complete with bars, but it also looks abandoned and smells like it too, as Casey checks out all of the cells, Dahlia hears something moving further down the tunnels and goes to investigate it. They know that she is tailing them and that they are leading her somewhere specific, but she has no idea where, until she enters the basement of an old steel works where rumours of toxic waste and man eating mutated piranhas abound, but what she finds there is more sinister, multiple gurney’s covered in blood where it looks like the victims were strapped on while they were tortured and dismembered, she can sense the horror which lies in wait for her as well. She spies the person running along a skywalk being followed by another three people, but more are on their way as Dahlia is showered in bullets and only just avoids them before being engaged in hand to hand combat, again! She is surprised by the speed and agility, they look human, but she has a feeling that they aren’t, but there is no telltale smell or other indication telling her what they are, but she does her usual, but gets no further information from any of them before she is forced to set the place alight, hoping that there are no more victims being caged there as well.

As she tries to explain away the destruction and get Casey out of the way of it, Detective Creed doesn’t believe her, again and tja Captain of the force wants answers yesterday. The only lead they have is the van tyre tracks which they found and as it is the only solid thing, it means that they will be doing their best to track it down. Just as they finish the meeting Casey informs them of a crime at a past crime scene of an altercation which may have a non-human origin, so all three head three due to its proximity to the steel works. When they get there, Creed interviews the witness and Dahlia goes to look for clues to what happened and what creatures were involved, she finds some blood and some fabric, one she shares and one she examined and keep for further tests, but what she initially finds explains the mystery of how she wasn’t able to smell or use her senses to identify her assailants earlier. She also sees the evidence of a struggle and works out that it probably isn’t prudent to stay in the dark as it is in the backyard of the criminals they are looking for.

Later that night, Dahlia is running tests and comparisons to try and find out what type of creature the suspect is when the alarm in her gym goes off and when she gets there, she knows exactly who and why, she talks to Casey again about the dangers he was just walking into and although she understands that he just wants to feel close to and find his sister, she still tells him off until they are interrupted by someone being attacked, they try to help, but the victim doesn’t speak their language and as they are trying to decide what to do, they escape, now they have to worry a out then becoming a victim of a different type, these worries are put onto the back burner when a new lead appears and when it shows other connections, the hunt is in for her and Creed.

Will they be able to figure out who is behind the abductions and dismemberments, or will they fall foul of more than they can handle as the tangled web of secrets is revealed? This is another whirlwind of a tide across realms where revelations are not always what they seem and which hook you into their mysteries as well.

Dahlia Nite is back in the next installment of this series and yet again, she has another crime to solve, but this time she has to overcome her own personal barriers as well as professional ones, although having Casey Evans around to talk to us helpful and her partner Detective Creed is as much of a thorn in her side as ever, but they all make a good team.

4 stars

A song to remember was a short read but interesting. To find your fated mate is a blessing to have to find them with no memory tragic. I do wish this story was longer just so I could get to know the characters better. Emma seemed like a good character and hopefully we get to see her grow. Shane and Bekah were fated but it seemed that everyone was against them. I felt like a lot was missing from the story due to its length. It was put together well though. They had to jump through a few hoops to get to their HEA but it was well worth the wait. I’m going to look into more by this author just because it wasn’t a bad read and the story had a lot of potential.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great story that shows us the power of music….the power of a single song. Shane is a werewolf in a band full of witches. He’s already had his rounds of fame and fortune and found that it wasn’t really for him. He preferred to stay in one place for more than a few days at a time. His current bands mates unfortunately have different aspirations. They want fame and are willing to summon a demon in order to achieve it. Shane wants no part of it and decides to leave the band. That night he meets Bekah. His fate-bound. He plays one song just for her. And that one song will be so important to his future. That night something bad happens and Shane forgets everything….except that one song. Will he remember Bekah? Will she be able to help him find his lost memories? What danger is lurking around the corner?

This was a great short story with a bit of everything within its pages. Music, romance, suspense, witchcraft, black magic, love, loyalty, family. This book has it all. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and I am looking forward to more from the Crescent City Wolfpack!

by Carrie Pulkinen

5 out of 5 stars

A Song to Remember is the third book in the Mystifying Music A Crescent City Wolf Pack written by Carrie Pulkinen and I really enjoyed this story it seems like with every book just gets better and better.
The characters are awesome, and the plot was great and different. This is a romance story with magic and shifters, witches and other things that normally go bump in the night. We also have memory loss, suspense, drama, danger, and love.
We meet Bekah and Shane’s in this story they meet in a to have a one- night stand but, Shane’s wolf claim Bekah but when he leaves her, he tells her he will be back. When he doesn’t show up, she goes home.
One day Shane shows up at Bekah’s café with no idea who she is or how he got there. Can Bekah help Shane remember his past? Or will both their futures be in peril?
Neither can deny their soul-deep connection, but an unknown menace has followed Shane to New Orleans. If he can’t recover his memory, his fated mate and the entire pack will be in danger.
You will need to read this amazing book to find out what happens…. I highly recommend this book/series….

A Song to Remember: A Crescent City Wolf Pack Novella (Mystifying Music Book 3)A Song to Remember: A Crescent City Wolf Pack Novella by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Song to Remember is a novella that is part of the Crescent Wolf City Pack by Carrie Pulkinen. This is my fifth novel by this author.

Shane is a musician who meets his fated mate causing his wolf to claim her. Only thing Bekah wants is a one night stand but when they see each other again, Shane doesn’t remember her.

His bandmates want to summon a demon in order to become famous. If he refuses, he’s against them.

This was a really good story. I loved Shane and how he couldn’t remember Bekah but I also loved their chemistry and how their relationship progressed.

I highly recommend this short read and this series.

I give A Song to Remember: A Crescent City Wolf Pack Novella (Mystifying Music Book 3) by Carrie Pulkinen, 5 stars.

I have really enjoyed this series so far and was looking forward to this, the next book in the series. It fit in being that it I involved the same werewolf pack and had a boy meets girl romance, but it was so different as well. Having Shane forget everything but somehow remember Bekah was a great twist. They way it happened was quite different too. Both Bekah and Shane are real, wonderful characters, making you feel like you know them. Not to mention the story itself. Not only is there the romance that you want to happen, there is something evil seemingly after them. This makes it much more than a paranormal romance novel in my opinion. This is not a very long read, so if you are like me and can’t put it down, you can finish it fairly quickly.

If you are a fan of shorter paranormal romance with good characters and an interesting story, this book is for you.

A Song to Remember: A Crescent City Wolf Pack Novella (Mystifying Music Book 3) by Carrie Pulkinen

5-Stars

A Song to Remember: A Crescent City Wolf Pack Novella (Mystifying Music Book 3) by Carrie Pulkinen was an exciting and romantic read. Bekah and Shane finally find each other only for Shane to lose his memory. Somehow he manages to find his way to New Orleans where she is but she doesn’t fall for his act. Can they figure out why he lost his memory and find that love of a fate bound again?

This story was an easy paced one and easy to read. I got completely lost in it and finished it in one sitting. Shane had impressive musical abilities and Bekah learned to trust herself more in this story. I loved that it tied in characters from the other books but can be read as a standalone. I also liked how the author pulls Emma into the storyline and let’s her show off some of her own skills. This was such a wonderful read and I highly recommend it!
