The Sight by Chloe Neill - Review

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...

---------------------------- Amazon, B&N, Goodreads ----------------------------

This is a great sequel to The Veil. I'll be honest - I forgot most of what happened in book 1 and wasn't sure how much I could truly get into the sequel. However, Chloe Neill immediately drew me back into Claire's world and I was hooked (once again).

The characters continue to develop, especially Claire and Liam, as the stakes are raised with a violent and ignorant group hell bent on destroying The Zone and New Orleans. Different characters rise to the forefront throughout the story, revealing more about their own pasts but also the pasts of humans and Paranormals. The world continues to get bigger and more complicated and mysteries are solved only to reveal more questions. Readers are given hints to Claire's parentage and her own abilities, as well as the pasts and potential of her friends and cohorts. The book is incredibly well paced, full of action, humor, and a hint of romance. The action scenes really left an impression for me as being exciting, well written, and still contributing to the overall story and character development. As more and more information about Paranormals and the world they left behind is revealed, tensions rise in New Orleans and Claire seems to be at the center of it, willing or not. I can't wait until the next installment.
