About the Author
Born in a small Kansas town on the Missouri river, C.L. Schneider grew up in a house of avid readers and overflowing bookshelves. Her first full-length novel took shape while she was still in high school, on a typewriter in her parent's living room. While her main focus is adult epic and urban fantasy, she also pens the occasional science fiction or post-apocalyptic story. Though she has been writing all of her life, Magic-Price (the first installment in The Crown of Stones Trilogy) was Schneider’s first published novel. With the trilogy complete, she is excited to be embarking on a new path with her urban fantasy series, Nite Fire. You can learn more about C.L. Schneider and her work at clschneiderauthor.com, where you can read reviews, excerpts, sneak peeks and teasers, subscribe to her newsletter, and follow her journey as an indie author on her blog, "Heading Down The Yellow Brick Road". As an active part of the indie author community, you can find her on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, and Google+, where she chats about books, zombies, coffee, and the wonderful roller coaster of a writer's life.

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.
Ms. Schneider has crafted an exciting story with compelling characters. If you like Ian Troy, you will love Dahlia Nite. And if you like mysteries and can discard preconceptions about the fantasy world, Flash Point will keep you in your seat, turning pages.
I'm not a fan of the kind of dark writing where children are killed horribly and graphically, and that's the only reason I couldn't give this wonderful book five stars. Other than that, this is a top notch read that I would recommend to 'almost' everyone.
