Lotte has moved from Germany, and is new to Southby High School, where Eric is trapped with her as his German tutor. Despite being somewhat dazzled by her unusual beauty and keen intelligence, he quickly realizes there may be more to her crabby demeanor and the scary black circles under her eyes than anyone realizes.

The unlikely couple must discover the mysterious source of Lotte’s debilitating nightmares... before madness overtakes her.

Playing with Fire by William E. Noland is a fascinating and exciting story that has depth and different cultural references. This shows how much effort the author put into the story and added to the already amazing writing and plot. I really loved how the narrative switches between Lotte and Eric to the creature, as we don’t often see the perspective of the monster in novels. It gives the story a unique edge and helped with the progression of the plot overall. The characters were also so well described, each with a distinct personality, but with plenty of room to grow. This was a fantastic story and I enjoyed it very much. I would definitely recommend this book to any fans of the fantasy genre.”

“I seldom read a book and start laughing out loud, but with Playing with Fire... this happened more than once. If you like adventure and humor, you will love Playing with Fire by William E. Noland. The vivid descriptions of the characters in the plot make it easy to imagine everything; I really could see the monster before me. Eric’s inner monologue is extremely amusing and made it possible for me to feel a deep connection with this character. Eric also grew as a character immensely throughout the book and it was exciting to see who he became as a person later on. Waiting for the next book is going to feel like an eternity. I can’t wait to read more about these characters who later on felt like friends.”

Playing with Fire by William E. Noland started with the entity talking and, I must be honest, I was confused and also immediately intrigued. I wanted to know more about this entity. I just kept turning the pages and could not put it down. The chapters alternated between Lotte and Eric, and the entity, and flowed naturally into each other. The story was fast-paced and very interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat... I enjoyed reading Playing with Fire and recommend it to readers who love supernatural thrillers. You are not going to stop after this one; you are also going to want to read the other stories in the series.”
