Thank you to Blackthorn Book Tours and C.L. Schneider for providing me a copy of Flash Point for an honest book review and including me in the book tour!
Dahlia Nite grew up brainwashed into believing she should follow The Guild of Dragons’ orders no matter the cost. As a half dragon half human lyrriken, she was taught that she owed her existence to the elder dragons. But the night her powers of empathy awakened, her beliefs began to change. In the middle of a kill order, she hesitated to kill a child. Her insubordination sentenced her to death. But Dahlia escaped her world, sliding into a portal destined for the human realm. Now she hides in plain sight, taking jobs and protecting the humans from creatures they have no idea exist.
Very rarely do I see dragons brought into urban fantasy. But C. L. Schneider did the perfect job incorporating high fantasy elements into an urban fantasy world. The dragons weren’t just another supernatural creature. They had an entire civilization built into the story that coincided with the modern day world. And what affected one world would inevitably snowball into affecting the other.
But not only was the world-building seamless, the main character Dahlia drove the story forward with a vengeance. Dahlia is a tough as nails half dragon that refuses to back down and be forced into anything. As a result of this, the entirety of Flash Point was filled to the brim with action. And I loved the element of tension as Dahlia tried to hide the work of supernatural creatures in an ever-evolving world of technology. Not to mention the revenge driven plot that brought to light just how far the dragons will go to protect their existence. Every piece of this book was fast-paced and conflict driven. I loved every minute of it!
There is so much left to be told about this world C.L. Schneider unveiled. I can’t wait to read the next book and dive into the political schemes of the dragon world. Because there is certainly something brewing on the horizon, and Flash Point gives you just enough information to leave you wanting more.
