Review: The Sight by Chloe Neill

, by Kt Clapsadl

The Sight by Chloe Neill
Devil's Isle #2

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 is a very impressive read that built a steady pace right from the start, finishing in one heck of a doozy ending. While the romance took up a good deal of the focus this time around, which I'll get into in a moment, the pacing of the actual plot was near perfect. Chloe's post-apocalptic New Orleans is so rich and full of detail, that I felt immersed in the character's struggle right alongside them. This time around centers around a truly nasty foe and a whole lot of paranoia and blind hatred, bringing the prejudices and fight between humans and paranormals to a head. That being said, the events were as far from predictable as you can imagine.

I have to admit the romance in THE SIGHT about gave me a terrible case of axiety as I was reading. It was incredibly stressful as both Liam and Claire acted and made decisions as if the two were a couple, and all the other characters treated them as such as well. And yet, there was still this huge barrier in actual romance. While I understood the things keeping them apart, it really didn't make it any easier. There's so much build up and tension of will they or won't that that I felt a nervous wreck the entire book. And then even when I felt that the tides had finally started to turn I just knew the other shoe would be dropping soon. And boy did it drop. While it's killer on my nerves, I do have to applaud Chloe for pouring so much emotion into the pair to more than keep me on my toes. 

Between the twists and turns of this book and the crazy up and down romance, after finishing THE SIGHT I have to admit I'm rather desperate to get my hands on the next book. I have to know what happens next now! If you enjoy Chloe's books, and particularly The Veil, you'll be more than pleased with this latest installment in the Devil's Isle series.
