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’ve been feeling urban fantasy lately, so I was eager to jump back into this world. I liked The Sight, but not as much as The Veil. Does that mean it’s not a good book? Absolutely not. It’s still a solid read that left me wanting more.
Gotta love a New Orleans setting, even if it’s a messed up version of the real thing. A new danger comes into play that threatens paranormals and humans alike, wreaking havoc all over the city. On top of dealing with the new threat and keeping the city safe, there’s a bit of a mystery surrounding Claire’s life that she’s trying to unravel.
Claire is a great heroine who continues to grow and become more confident while learning to gain control of her magic. She has sort of a quiet strength about her that I like, but can pull out the badass when necessary. I think we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg, so I’m eager to see her progression.
Claire and Liam try to fight their attraction, but those pesky pheromones are strong! I like how well they work together and that Liam doesn’t get all overprotective with her. They make a really good team.
The secondary characters are a big part of why I enjoy this book. I love Claire’s little group of friends, especially Gavin. He’s charming, funny, and cocky (in an amusing way). I always enjoy scenes that involve him, no matter who he’s interacting with.
Overall, I enjoyed The Sight and look forward to the next book.
