Publisher's Summary

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.   

Flash Point is the first audiobook in the Nite Fire series.

Wait for it...

I don't often do audiobook reviews, however, I very much enjoyed this book and wanted to share my thoughts. First, DON'T STOP TOO SOON. When I began listening, I was greatly dismayed by the narrator and I was confused at what was going on. The narrator was so slow that I had to speed it up or go mad. Well, in speeding it up, it also sounded better, and peaked my interest quickly enough. So, if bad narrators immediately put you off, WAIT, and give it a chance with adjustments. My confusion didn't last long, but I think the narration kerfuffle had me in a weird state of mind at the beginning. That said, my second thing is pay attention. This is not a book to mindlessly listen to while doing housework or other activities. The devil IS in the details of this book, so listen carefully. Not long in, you will find you don't have to listen hard - it becomes so easy to become immersed in the writing, characters, and universe, no effort needed.

Once I got past the "adjustment period", I found that this is a GREAT book. The story is original and has a very interesting and well thought out reality. The societal structure, government, and cultural values are richly conveyed throughout the book, and in such a way that it isn't a massive brain dump, but we get it in pieces (some larger than others). The characters are quite vivid, and have unique personalities. I loved that several times I though I "knew" a character and therefore how they would act or respond, only to find that I was so very wrong. They acted according to their personality type, but they are not cookie cutter or placeholders, and added multiple dimensions to the story. The protagonist is an interesting mix of badass and hothead, which was sometimes entertaining. But she also maintained compassion and empathy at times, that only proved to further underline her badassery (yes, that's a word today!). Anybody can fight, kill, and make people afraid through violence, but she showed the capacity to temper her actions and decisions with reason and consideration. In my opinion, that makes her a bigger badass. As the story goes on, I found it more and more difficult to stop listening - I just couldn't wait to find out what would happen next! The story draws you in and takes you for a long adventure with many elements and intrigues. Listen to it! You won't regret it, and like me, you'll be anxious to get the next book.
