"A well-written, original urban fantasy that is a welcome addition to the genre. Bad-ass action scenes, great dialogue and terrific character and worldbuilding." - Uncaged Reviews
From the Author
The Nite Fire Series was inspired by my love for such TV shows as Supernatural, Lost Girl, Jessica Jones, Grimm, X-Files, and so many more. Each story is written as a fast-faced, action-packed episode where Dahlia and the gang bounce from one mystery to the next, solving murders and hunting whichever monster-of-the-week is currently wreaking havoc on the dark streets of Sentinel City. At the same time, an underlying global threat evolves throughout the pages.
If you dare to take the ride, buckle up. There are twists around every corner!

She's called to help investigate a crime scene, and the action proceeds from there. Suffice to say, her own past as an assassin on her own world has found her, and now she needs to do something about it to keep even more humans whom she has somehow come to care for die.
This seems to be a set up book for a series, and therefore has a hard time settling which direction it wants to go. Her partner doesn't believe she's trying to solve the crime and knows she is somehow involved, her identity as a llyriken is compromised with another person who's not her partner, and her oldest friend in the city owns a gym where she shames the mostly male customers with her strength. The resolution seems a little too pat, too easy, and therefore unstable.
It was easy enough to read, but never really settled on a direction. I liked it, but haven't yet decided if I intend to continue reading the series.
Dahlia Nite is a character who you should probably dislike, because of her past, but is actually trying to find some kind of redemption for what she has done. Having been an assassin for the Guild, the manifestation of a new gift causes her to split from her employers, and flee the world she knows.
Somehow, having escaped those sent to bring her back, she finds herself working for another of her kind, to solve problems with creatures coming to our world from elsewhere. Her latest job starts as a less than simple homicide/coverup, and quickly escalates into a situation that is far more than it seems on the surface. But then what do you expect when your job was to work with the investigating team, and hide the fact that one of your own might have done the deed?
Dahlia is a very strong lead character, and the ties to those around her are about as complicated and complex as one would expect for someone who has lived longer than most in our world can even contemplate. But it's the people around her that really reflect who, and what she is, in ways that are so well written that it's hard not to want Dahlia to succeed.
Once I stated reading, I found this book very hard to put down, and I am expecting great things from the author, as the series progresses. If Dalia goes through even a fraction of the trials and tribulations that the protagonist of The Crown of Stones went through, she will be transformed in ways I can't even begin to predict. And it's those twist, turns and surprises that make Schneider's work shine.
After nearly a century it seems like Queen Naalish has finally forgotten the rebel who escaped and Dahlia feels like she can settle down in Sentinel City, the only place that has ever felt like home. She is immediately thrown into a grisly scene as a fire investigator and partners with the crusty detective assigned to the case but more and more bodies begin piling up. This is an awesome story of love, lies, vengeance, and betrayal. Though written in first person, all the characters come alive in this well-written paranormal fantasy. Highly Recommended.
Dahlia Nite has been hiding on Earth for many, many years. A former assassin, she disobeyed her orders and was scheduled for execution herself. She has always been taught to obey, but this time she could not. So she fled to Earth. Dahlia never stayed in one place very long, but now she ended up back in the one place she always loved. It finally seems like she is not being hunted, but she is still wary and knows she can’t go back to her home world or she would surely die.
Now she has been called in to assist the police in an extremely gruesome murder. With her extra abilities, she can usually sense and see things humans cannot. She takes one look at the murder, and she knows there is big trouble. She knows the killer isn’t human. And all evidence points to one of her kind. Now she has to not only find and catch who is responsible, but do it while pretending it is actually a human who did this. The humans don’t know such otherworldly monsters exist, and they don’t need to know. Her partner, a determined police detective, makes this part of her job very difficult.
The deeper she gets, the more her instincts tell her that she just needs to hand this job off and run and hide. What if she is discovered? But if she does run, what chance will the humans in this town have? She is tired of running, maybe it’s time to see if there something she can do to make a difference.
I absolutely loved this book. I cannot say enough about it. It is urban fantasy at its best. The story just pulls you right in, and the characters are written so well. You will quickly become submerged in the story and feel like another character in this wonderful story. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy.

As with all of C.L. Schneider's work, the plot is complex and well-developed, the characters grey and layered. Nothing is as it seems, and there is always layer upon layer of mystery, intrigue, snappy comebacks and downright brutal violence. Schneider is one of few authors I read who can make my jaw physically drop. She is a master of the epic reveal!
A cracking read - I can't wait for the next in the series!
I received a complementary copy via Storyorigin and am leaving a voluntary honest review
I cannot give it a full 5 stars as there are still a few grammar/spelling mistakes. Some are small, while others I just can't get past! I do believe if the author gave another read through she will catch them for future books.
