Slated for execution, shape-shifting assassin Dahlia Nite flees her world to hide in the human realm. As payment for the shelter they unknowingly provide, Dahlia dedicates herself to protecting humans from what truly lives in the shadows. Moving from town to town, she hunts the creatures that threaten an unsuspecting human race, burying the truth that could destroy them all.
But the shadows are shifting. The lies are adding up. When Sentinel City is threatened by a series of bizarre brutal murders, light is shed on what should never be seen. The secrets that have kept humanity in the dark for centuries are in danger of being exposed.
Wrestling with a lifetime of her own deceptions, Dahlia investigates the killings while simultaneously working to conceal their circumstances. But with each new murder, the little bit of peace she has found in this world begins to crumble. Each new clue leads her to the one place she thought to never go again: home.

Dahlia Nite – possibly the most bad ass character I have come across in quite some time – is an exiled Dragon shifter from Drimera. Running from her inevitable (completely ridiculous – in my humble opinion) execution through one of the exits into our world. Once here she proceeds to keep the human race safe and completely ignorant of all the creepy crawlies that go bump in the night. However things are starting to heat up (Pun So Intended) and Dahlia is having a tough time because the more the story continues – the more obvious it becomes she might have to go back to the one place she never thought she would return.
There were so many things just right with Nite Fire. Dahlia really is this incredibly strong and independent character. She gives bad ass new meaning. Once this really scary, cold hearted executioner, I absolutely adored seeing her softer side. Especially seeing as this softer side is the reason she was exiled in the first place.
Then we get to the story line – intense, action and mystery filled with incredibly great world building by C.L. Schneider. The imagery was so well done and easy to visualize and imagine that I at times, found myself lost in this really colourful (if sometimes a little dark and morose) world.
Add in the amazingly well written supporting characters, from the returning ex to the mysterious bartender and computer geek this book pretty much had it all.
The narration of Nite Fire was pretty on par – Dahlia’s character sounded exactly as I would have imagined her to with this rough, and a little growly voice. Cassandra King had a very easy to listen to cadence to her voice and I quite easily lost myself to her story telling ability.
All in all, Nite Fire is a pretty darn amazing read.
