Review: The Beyond by Chloe Neill

The Beyond by Chloe Neill
Devil's Isle #4

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 . . .

In THE BEYOND, things really come to a head, and it was one heck of a thrill ride. Everything in the Devil’s Isles series has been building up to this point for the ultimate battle. The stakes were incredibly high, and I enjoyed every moment. Crossing over the Veil added a new dimension to the world, and it was fascinating to see how their world was. Both Claire and I *almost* felt sorry for the paras that left there to escape, almost. But the amount of destruction they caused Earthside is inexcusable and she wasn’t afraid to sock it to them.

In the romance department, things are much better than in previous installments. I had expressed a good bit of frustration in my reviews of the prior books. But this time around things felt much more on track and less wishy-washy. Don’t get me wrong, things weren’t smooth sailing or roses for the pair, but the romance felt much more substantial this go around, which I very much appreciated.

All in all, THE BEYOND was a good finish to the Devil’s Isle series that I greatly enjoyed. Fans of the series will be pleased with this conclusion.
