If anyone can tell the difference between monsters and humans, it’s Dahlia Nite. For nearly a century, she’s hunted one to protect the other. Safeguarding humanity from the creatures that slip through the torn veil between the worlds. Creatures like her.
But the lines are blurring. As people begin mutating and combusting on the streets, Dahlia realizes a strange affliction has descended upon Sentinel City. The mysterious ailment strikes all walks of life, from the posh high-end nightclub district to the homeless community. Its victims, driven to random acts of savagery, are drawing attention too fast to cover up.
Assigned to the case, Dahlia and her human partner Detective Alex Creed investigate the deaths. But all they have are questions, bodies, and a public on the verge of panic. Working behind the scenes with her self-appointed sidekick Casey Evans, Dahlia struggles to discover what, or who, is behind the alarming transformations.
As the violence spreads and the mystery unfolds, she wonders: Are the victims still human? Were they ever?
Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire series.

Cassandra is a professional actor from New York. She works with a private acting trainer and has been making her way into the voice over world. Becoming an audiobook narrator was a great way to combine her desire to act and her passion for literature. She is currently working on book 2 of the Nite Fire series entitled ‘Chain Reaction’ as well as a Warhammer 30k fan film called ‘Death of Hope’. In addition to reading and acting, Cassandra also enjoys anime, sports, cooking, and traveling.
Nite Fire: Chain Reaction dives right back into the world of beloved Dahlia Nite, dragon shifter and all around badass, as she discovers a mysterious drug that is causing people to mutate and combust. Working with her human partner Detective Creed, it is a race against the clock as Dahlia tries to uncover who is behind the chaos.
I really liked this sequel, possibly more than the first book in the series! It was crazy full of even more action and all the twists and turns that I love. I felt the plot was fast-paced and gripping and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen. Book 1 really helps set up this sequel so I would definitely suggest that you read that first before diving into this bad boy.
Once again I really enjoyed Cassandras audio narration! She was so fun to listen to and the voices she created for the story were great!
