The Sight by Chloe Neill – Review & Giveaway
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 by Chloe Neill is the 2nd book in her Devil’s Isle series. The story picks up pretty much where the first book left off. You can read my review of The Veil here, if you want a refresher. Claire Connolly is our heroine in this series; she is a Sensitive, but she also has magic, which she hides, with only a select few knowing. If she is discovered to have magic, she would then be locked up in Devil’s Isle, instead of working with Liam, our hero, in learning how to become a bounty hunter. Claire is also learning how to control her magic, to be able to protect herself. Most people in New Orleans know Claire, as runs a local store for food and supplies.
While she and Liam are searching for a sensitive that lost control of his magic, and become a dangerous wraith; they are approached by a group of people chanting. This new cult, wants to eliminate all paranormals, including those on Devil’s Isle, and anyone who befriends or protects them. The leader of the cult is dangerous and thinks nothing of killing innocents. It is up to Claire and Liam, and their friends to find a way to stop them from destroying New Orleans.
What follows is an action packed intense story in a dark urban fantasy world that will bring even enemies together to help fight off the terrorist cult that has now outnumbered them. In between the oncoming attack, Claire and Liam finally succumb to their growing love for each other. I loved the secondary characters that are Claire’s friends, who will play instrumental parts in fighting off enemy.
At times, things were a bit slow, as you learn so many details on this strange new world; but the story overall was very exciting with lots of action. The best thing about this series is the heroine, Claire, who made a wonderful heroine; she was determined, strong, loyal, rational and fearless. As we race to the finish, there are a few twists and turns that were surprises, which will lead us to the next book in this series. I look forward to see what happens with Claire, Liam and the rest of their friends.
