My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The life that Dahlia has build in Sentinel City is over. Fall after fall. Beaten and bruised. She’s tried so hard to keep the city safe from all the creatures of the veil, but it wasn’t enough. Utterly betrayed and completely crushed, she struggles to put out more blazing inferno fires than one half dragon shapeshifter can handle on her own. Stretched thin once again with half her team missing and creatures running the streets, Dahlia doesn’t know what to do with this apocalypse. Her worlds have defiantly collided and it’s not good at all! Fighting to protect the world that she has come to love, Dahlia must find a way to save what remains of her poor crumbling city. This tragic new reality has the damaged veil between the worlds eroding faster and faster. Exits are multiplying fast and giving free reign to the creatures who will devour everything in their path. Her dragon is done sitting quietly in the background. She must stop the chaos and mad scientist before the Renewal extinguishes all life on the linked worlds. Her worlds! Will her dragon help her to save her home? Will her dragon take over and let the worlds kill each other? Mass murder! And what about her team?! Her family! Dahlia has much to do if she wants to save a little corner of her rubble of a world. But is that even possible at this point?? Against many walls she must try! I can’t believe that I’m done! This was such a great set!!! I want to read them all again just to make sure that I didn’t miss anything! And I probably will! LOL! And if I have anything to say about it there should be some movies made about this set!! Can you picture the dragon shapeshifter?? The rips in veils! The creatures!!! I sure can!! If you haven’t started this set yet you need to!! You will not want to put it down for sure!!

Nite Fire: Smoke & Mirrors by C. L. Schneider – Review by Jaimie Salmon-Colburn

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

Dahlia Nite has lived undetected among the humans of Sentinel City for some time. Hunting creatures at all hours of the night to keep the humans safe, has been her personal mission for a while. A century! As a half dragon shape shifter she relies on many secrets and a lot of deception to keep her cover. Sometimes multiple covers! Walking in two worlds and belonging to neither keeps her hiding in plain sight, while also providing a good cover. Sometimes. It’s worked for so long. But nothing can stay hidden forever, right? When bodies start showing up dismembered and dumped at the river, Dahlia is on the case with human Detective Creed. Sentinel City begins to unravel while they try to set off with a new task force to uncover what is going on with these new killings. Clues set them on a path from crime scene to crime scene, but there is something wrong with the evidence and it just doesn’t add up! Already on edge, Dahlia employs her empathic abilities and uncovers something that makes her worlds crash into each other head first. All the secrets are piling up and she’s not the only one who is keeping them! Yeah!! She struggles to shield her friends from the truth about the veil and the monsters, but the serial killer, missing creatures, masked men, and her sidekick’s missing sister to boot is to much for Dahlia to handle! Will Dahlia break and everything come unraveled? Will her friends find out the truth about her and the worlds she tries to hide? Yet another great book to this set!! If you haven’t started this set you should!! It is so good!! It will keep you up all night just because you want to finish it!! This is defiantly one that I would recommend! And of course I can’t wait to read the others in the set!!

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction (Book 2) by C.L. Schneider – Review by Jaimie Salmon-Colburn

Chain Reaction (Nite Fire #2)Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dahlia Nite is back again with more murder mysteries piling up all around her. She has become a “fire consultant” for the police of Sentinel City, which helps her stay close to the “more interesting” (aka more bizarre) cases. The ones that she needs to help cover up before the veil of creatures and worlds are exposed to the fragile humans. She has hunted creature from the torn veil to keep humanity safe for almost a century now. She knows her monsters, but now something is throwing it all off. Something is different. But what is it? Smells and emotions are off. Are these victims really human? Or something else?? People are mutating and she can’t smell anything but human before they combust! Yes they combust! As in up in flames!!! Combusting humans from homeless to high-class are drawing attention so fast that it’s hard to cover up. Dahlia and her human partner (Creed) investigate the deaths but only come up with more questions and even more bodies. The public is on the verge of a major panic that can consume the whole city! Is this a virus? Is it contagious?? She needs to move fast and find what or who is at fault! Can her sidekick help to figure out that is going on? Will the queen step in and just take care of her at the same time? Two birds one stone? Man this book kept me on my toes!! I CAN NOT wait to read the rest in this set!!! I REALLY want this to become a movie! If done right I can totally see this set becoming a movie series!!

Nite Fire: Exit Strategy (Book 5) by C.L. Schneider – Review by Erin Wolf

Exit Strategy (Nite Fire #5)Exit Strategy by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was absolutely amazing! I have loved this series since book one and could not wait to see what this book held for me. The action started right away. The destruction and travesty were devastating, but Dahlia and her friends chose to fight the evil. The characters have developed so much throughout this series. They are what really make this so good. The evolution of Dahlia while still keeping to her beliefs. The friends she has forged and the new ones she meets along the way.

But the story is what really kept me from not being able to but the book down. The story is so original and gripping. So many things are happening at once. Just when you think it’s over, it’s really just begun. The world the author has created — so descriptive and imaginative. The author weaves this fantastic tale with intriguing characters into a masterpiece.

The last book in the series, the previous books need to be read first. But if you are a fan of urban fantasy, you really need to read this book and series.

All I can say is wow. This is the final book of the series and it definitely delivered. I have said it before, this author’s stories are epic and remind me of some of the great fantasy authors like JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. The author created a dynamic world and story which I was really loving. I cannot wait to see more from her.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After surviving the events in the previous book Dahlia is back to her old ways, playing protector. As the number of “other” beings/ monsters continues to grow Dahlia has to wonder will she be enough?

Another Dahlia Nite story and its just as good as the others. I have absolutely loved this series, I would recommend reading them in order though. The depth of the characters, how they interact, and where their relationship comes from are all built throughout the series. I also love how while there is a main issue within each story there is also an arch tying them all together. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Nite Fire: Exit Strategy by C.L. Schneider – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur.

Exit Strategy (Nite Fire #5)Exit Strategy by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dahlia Nite, the shapeshifting, scaled vigilante is back and it is the end of the world, or at least the beginning of the end, everything she thought she knew and trusted has been ripped apart at the seams and she doesn’t know where to go or what to do first and her list has just been added to again. As she recovers from the shock of the city being brought to its knees and the disappearance of half of her team without so much as a note or message to say where they have gone, she has to go on fighting for the place she has come to love and where has almost become home, but for Dahlia, as usual, nothing is straight forward.

First on the list is both to try and stay alive and keep those on her team which are left alive, this is easier said than done as rubble is strewn all over Sentinel City, fires are burning out of control and the skyline has been completely changed by the attack

.Second, she has to figure out a way to stop the blight and halt the spread of this over the linked worlds, while also trying to figure out where it came from and how it adapts to each environment so quickly.

Thirdly she has to find a way to close the exits which are forming as the veil slowly disintegrates and which are popping up all over the place and causing more trouble than they are worth, not to mention the influx of supernatural creatures which are using them.

In place number four, she has the mad scientist who is bent on world domination and who is thriving in the chaos around them and using it to their advantage.

Finally, she has the lovely dragon inside her who she hopes is about to divulge the information she needs to tackle all of the above, but who is also done with being blocked and starts to take matters into their own hands.

With all that commotion, there is no time for grief, emotion or sometimes even to breathe, but as Dahlia makes the hard choices, will she be able to complete all her tasks before the Renewal takes any chance away from her? This is a fast paced urban fantasy adventure full of action, adventure, hurdles and stress come together in this race against the end of the world where secrets and lies obstruct plans and those fighting to stop it are overwhelmed and under pressure to find a solution in the gripping final instalment to the series.
