From the New York Times bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampire novels, a brand new Devil’s Isle Novel... 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 growing threat before magic corrupts them both...
From the Trade Paperback edition.

I highly recommend The Sight by Chloe Neill, which is book two in her urban fantasy Devil’s Isle series, but at the same time I felt befuddled and perplexed by the ending. I have started this review several times as I was riveted by the continuation of the story of New Orleans years after a paranormal invasion was pushed back, and the people who live in the Zone, an area that was ravaged by war and magic. The people who live in the war ravaged area are mostly committed to staying in the community that their families fought and died to protect. Like Neill’s other urban fantasy series the romance is that of a slow burn, as Neill doesn’t write couple who have ‘insta-love’. This is one aspect that make the premiere urban fantasy writers like Neill stand out, they allow their series to unfold and don’t have to give readers everything in one book. The romance in this series is again set on slow burn with Claire Connelly and Liam Owens being the couple that sizzles. These two don’t have an easy relationship as Claire has magic and Liam’s sister was killed by magic. Plus Liam is a magic bounty hunter who if Claire is corrupted by her magic, he will have to capture and take her to paranormal prison Devil’s Isle where all the enemy combatant left from the war are held. Oi Vey this couple has issues, but they burn up the pages with just looks. Holy Hotness!
As with the first book the plot centers around Claire and her struggle with being a magic user in hiding. The lives of the conscripted enemy combatants living in Devil’s Isle. In this book a new enemy has emerged, a very deadly one. Claire also discovers a lot about her dad. Claire and Liam’s relationship does give me pause, as Liam has ISSUES! I really am pulled toward him but his issues make me pause. Which left me with my mouth hanging open at the end of the book. Wow!
