Devil's Isle #2
Urban Fantasy - Paranormal Romance
August 16th 2016
The paranormal war that engulfed New Orleans seven years ago is over. But the battle for the city is just beginning . . .
Claire Connolly is a Sensitive, infected with magic when the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell. Magic can easily consume and destroy a Sensitive, and if Claire’s secret is discovered she’ll be locked into the walled district of Devil’s Isle along with every other Paranormal left in the city.
Bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered Claire’s secret, but refused to turn her in. Together they saved New Orleans from the resurgence of magic that nearly destroyed it. But now a dangerous cult is on the rise, and it will take both Claire and Liam—and magical allies within Devil’s Isle’s towering walls—to defeat the occult threat before magic corrupts them both...
The Sight is book two in the Devil’s Isle series by Chloe Neill. We’re in the middle of a war that gets dangerous fast.
This series does need to be read in order. Their is very little recap, and most of the world-building is laid out in book one, The Veil. Each book builds on the next getting us deeper into the magical and political world.
The Sight is tailored towards the political implications of two opposing sides. The start was a bit slow, which made it hard to get into the story, but around the halfway point things pick up and come to a head. Things then start to get very interesting with a few surprises and revelations along the way. It makes me curious especially after such an ending to see what will happen next. I didn’t expect that outcome.
We do get some forward progress with Claire and Liam’s romance. The sexual tension is strong between them, but even though they make progress, they also take a few steps back.
Overall, I really enjoyed The Sight.
Rated: 3.5 Stars
