Review: The Sight by Chloe Neill

Title: The Sight
Author: Chloe Neill
Series: Book Two in the Devil's Isle Series
Published By: NAL (August 16, 2016)
Source: ARC Copy Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!



Book Description:
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...







Riveting, entertaining, with an almost unique take on the paranormal world, Neill's latest series is definitely one that stands out and shines.

Every bit as good as its predecessor, The Sight was hard to put down and kept me eagerly turning the pages right up until the devastating end. 

With unforgettable characters (love Moses!) and a whole cast of unusual paranormal beings, it truly does have a place all its own in the genre. 

With new threats at every turn, new adventures to be had, Claire and her rag tag group of friends have even more to deal with and conquer as it seems like they take one step forward and two steps back trying to get New Orleans back to its original glory and to a place where humans and paras can both live and interact alike. 


I adored this second installment and with the ending that left it all up in the air, was left craving more. I'm so very excited for where this series is going and for what Neill will throw at us next.

  20. I'm really glad you enjoyed this one. I started the Chicagoland Vampires several years ago, but I quit after a certain issue with a character that made me angry. I've been debating about trying this one. Now that there are two books out that people love, I might have to give this one a try.
