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…
I loved the first book in the series, but I even love this one even more.
Chloe Neill done it again, in writing an awesome book with awesome characters and story. This series is a bit different than what we know from Neill , but still really great.
This book start off where the first book stopped and we get action right away. And the aftermath of some events.
I loved Claire in this book, strong and fighting for what is right even if it breaks all rules and laws. She is really growing with the story.
So is Liam though, he is fighting with Claire but also for so his family and so much more. I like where they story is taking them, together but also individual.
Nothing in this book goes right and everything is pretty much falling apart for everyone and the world. There are plenty of twists and nothing is what it seems to be as first.
It all turns pretty dark throughout some parts in the book, but with all that we still get snark and humor.
It has a great balance and nothing overtakes the other. The world building is still great and I loved it.
Overall, loved the book and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I rate it 4 ★
