The half-dragon shapeshifter/police advisor Dahlia Nite is back, protecting the humans of Sentinel City. This time, a drug is wreaking havoc, and she has to stop it before they're all exposed.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was awesome, easily one of my top reads this year.
After introducing Dahlia and the dragon backstory in the first book; this sequel wastes no time in driving head on with a new story.
It mixes detective thriller, with a buddy cop movie, and gives it

Everytime I read something by this author, I am reminded why I enjoy her books so much. I love the way she writes, the characters, the story...everything. I have a soft spot for Dragon shifters and C.L. Schneider writes them in such a unique light. Dahlia Nite is by far my favourite character, Evans is a close second, but then again he is human and there's only so many unique ways to write a human character.

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by CL Schneider is the second book in her Nite Fire series. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest reading the first book to enrich your enjoyment of this series. This is a thriller-suspense-shifter book that is written with creative characters and an easy flowing story line. This author will take you on a journey of twists and turns that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. The characters are connectable and enjoyable. In the first book ...more

This is the second book in the Nite Fire series, and it is still going way strong. The author has created a very rich world, one in which the characters are multi-faceted, neither good nor bad. Even when it seems the characters can’t get more interesting, something happens and things change. Admittedly, I am not overly fond of the very wordy book, of which this series tends to be, but I am so vested in everything that goes on, I can’t help but revel in every one. I love this world, and I love ...more

Nite Fire:Chain Reaction is book two in the Nite Fire series by C. L. Schneider. Another brilliant forage into the paranormal. This author puts a clever and unique spin on the genre, as do all authors, but C. L. Schneider stories are just more memorable.

The story Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is a thrilling journey that takes you into the world of the paranormal. It is a book that had me hooked from the very beginning. It is the second book in the Nite Fire series. I would highly recommend reading this series in order. I found that way the story had a smoother flow as events that happened in the first book were revisited and many of the characters are in both stories. This

Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire series of novels by C. L. Schneider. It continues the story of Dahlia Nite, a half-dragon shapeshifter from another world who, together with Detective Creed and Officer Casey Evans (her trusty sidekick), sets out to uncover the source of a drug that’s turning the human residents of Sentinel City into monsters. The investigation takes a series of dramatic twists and turns, and plunges Dahlia face-to-face with perhaps her greatest adversary yet.

Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire Series by C. L Schneider. The story is a paranormal, action/adventure. It has so much going for it- there’s supernatural elements, danger, shifters, mystery, suspense, drama… and so much more. I really recommend reading the first book in order to have all the important backstory details, before starting this one.

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction is the second book of CL Schneider’s Nite Fire series. I would highly recommend that you go and read the first one, Nite Fire:Flashpoint, before you jump right into this one. That one really sets up the world that you are going to step in to. And it is a vivid one at that. I really enjoy the way that CL Schneider can bring to life the scene of the story so much so that I feel as if I am right there with the characters experiencing things firsthand. This is what brings ...more

I give Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider, 5 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from book one.*

I love this series and this book, the second in the series, blew me away. From the beginning of book one, I have loved Dahlia. She not only kicks butt, she knows she's not perfect. She is very in touch with her human side. Unlike most of her kind, she respects and quite likes the humans. She has been on the run for so long, this book finally has her getting more comfortable with what she

Chain Reaction (Nite Fire, Book 2) by C.L. Schneider topped it's predecessor, enhancing everything I love form the first book, while keeping the same elements that made this first for great.

Holy hell, this series is giving me heart problems. Right back into the think of things, there are more bodies, more bloody action and more sinister mysteries. It's like if CSI, Grimm and Criminal Minds had a baby, this would be the love child that broke all love childs. I can't get enough of this original,

C.L Schneider has once again created an unique read that is captivating, vivid, magical and utterly brilliant. The mentally visual read is stunningly descriptive with brilliant world building and great characters. This author has created a flowing read that keeps you invested in the story, so much so you think you are living the life of our main character Daliha Nite. This book should be read after book one as it flows effortlessly from book 1 to book 2.

This read is filled with suspense,

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by CL Schneider is the second book in her Nite Fire series and this one just keeps getting better and better. This series is one that needs to be read in order, so I highly recommend getting book one, Flash Point, first and reading that so the storyline makes the most sense. Continuing the story of Dahlia, who we met in book one, we get to see more of her abilities as a shapeshifting assassin. This story opens with her and her partner being assigned a case full of ...more

Schneider is on point once more!

The story that started in Flash Point continues into this one seemlessly.
Time has passed in The Sentinel since Dahlia Nite and Detective Creed became partners. And despite their differences in background and methods, they've become an interesting team to follow. In fact, it's because of those differences that the dynamic works so well.
But it's really the newly forged partnership with Evans and developing complication of Cohen that really make this book shine.

Chain Reaction is the second book in C. L. Schneider’s Nite Fire series. I am so happy to continue my acquaintance with the half-dragon shapeshifter/police advisor Dahlia Nite who is protecting humans in Sentinel City! I hope the writer will not keep us waiting that long again for the next instalment in the series!
SO, we got Dahlia’s backstory in the first book so this one is full-blown come-on-a-ride-of-your-life-story that leaves us with a cliffhanger! WHY!? Well, Dahlia and Detective Creed

Just as good second time around! Nite Fire: Chain Reaction is Book 2 in the series by C.L. Schneider. A continuation of the first book, which means that you really need to read the first one, Dahlia goes on a mission that could save an entire city. She has a new human partner named Creed and is a consultant now for the police department helping out with the “non-human” profiling. This time a mutating drug named Chrysalis has shown up into the city and its Dahlia’s job to find the source and stop ...more

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is the second book in the Nite Fire series.

We head back to Dahlia, who is still determined to protect the humans from the supernatural world they are unaware exists. Something that is easier said than done when people keep spontaneously combusting with no apparent reason.
Working the case only seems to lead to more questions - questions about who is behind it all and questions over the victims themselves. The more Dahlia investigates the further she

NITE FIRE: CHAIN REACTION is the 2nd book in this stunning series and it is my opinion that NITE FIRE: FLASH POINT is read first. CHAIN REACTION starts with a lot of important details that you will understand better/faster if you read this series in order.

This is book two in the Nite Fire series. After barely surviving the mess of book one, Dahlia Nite has jumped from the frying pan into the fire in this one. Humans start mutating and combusting after catching some kind of weird affliction. She has no clue what’s going on and seems she’s always one step behind. It’s happening so fast and publicly that she can’t cover everything up. When the affliction hits a little too close to home, it becomes personal for

I have only read a handful of books in this genre, but I feel confident in saying that Nite Fire: Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider is among the most original! It is book 2 in a 3 book series, with the 3rd one not yet released.

Working with the authorities from time to time, Nite does what she can to cover up the presence of her own kind ...more
