URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: A Devil Isle Novel 2: The Sight - Chloe Neill

Release Date: 18/08/16
Publisher:  Gollancz & Berkley


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 second outing in Chloe’s new series and whilst I didn’t really get on with her Chicagoland Vampires series, I have to say that this one not only has me gripped by hooked. I love the principle character, the overall arcs, the interactions of the supporting cast and when added to top notch prose and a great understanding of pace to keep the reader glued, I was a more than happy reader from start to finish.

Add to this a cracking series arc that wends it merry way throughout the pages as well as dialogue that really helps the casts personalities shine through really made this a series that has a high place on my to be read pile with each new release. Cracking.
