Sensitive Claire Connolly must journey to another world in the electrifying fourth installment of Chloe Neill’s post-apocalyptic urban fantasy series.
It’s been a year since the Veil between the human world and the world Beyond was torn apart, and war began again. Sensitive Claire Connolly and bounty hunter Liam Quinn have been helping their human and paranormal allies fight back against the ravaging invaders and save what’s left of New Orleans.
But a new enemy has arisen, more powerful than any they’ve seen before, and even Devil’s Isle cannot hold her. . .
When Claire learns of a new magical weapon–one built by paranormals themselves -she knows it could turn the tide of war. But to reach it, she and Liam will have to cross into the Beyond itself. In a world full of hostile magic and dangerous foes, she’ll have to channel the powers she once kept hidden in order to survive. New Orleans hangs in the balance, and the storm is growing closer . . .
As the final book of the Devil’s Isle series The Beyond by Chloe Neill wrapped up threads, took us into the veil and left me saddened to say goodbye.
Since this is the last book and I know many of you like to dive in once a series is complete and I will keep things vague.
Claire Connolly, a sensitive and her boyfriend, hunter Liam Quinn join forces with their human and paranormal allies to stop a new threat. A storm is coming to New Orleans ….
This was an exciting, non-stop installment as we see folks settling into this new version of New Orleans. Sensitives are learning to control their magic. Humans and paranormal are living side by side. A new paranormal threat emerges, and it is seeking revenge. When Claire and the others discover a weapon made in the veil, they seek a missing piece. This object may be the only thing that can save them.
Time spent inside the Veil was fascinating and beautifully described. The way it interacted with Claire and Liam’s abilities was intense. I am quite positive I would not want to live in their world. It left me imagining a government such as theirs. *shivers*
We see growth from Claire and movement in her relationship with Liam. While Neill kept the romance on the side, she gave us the closure we needed and some tender moments.
The overall series ARC wrapped up, and I liked how everything unfolded. Nothing felt forced and all the pieces snapped nicely into place.
I am saddened to say goodbye to Claire, New Orleans, and her friends both human and paranormal but I am looking forward to more from this author.The Beyond by Chloe Neill delivered an intense, action-packed conclusion to the #DevilsIsle Trilogy #UrbanFantasy #NOLA #NewRelease Click To Tweet
