ARC: The Veil by Chloe Neill

Jul 7, 2015

A Devil's Isle Novel
Book 1

A brand new series from New York Times bestselling author Chloe Neill. 

Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil's Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she's a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil's Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil's Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn't the same as keeping her out of his head.

As more and more Sensitives fall prey to their magic, and unleash their hunger on the city, Claire and Liam must work together to save New Orleans, or else the city will burn…

I gave this book a 

The Veil by Chloe Neil is a multifarious urban fantasy sure to excite the roamers of the world.  Neill tempts readers into a post paranormal war adventure.  All is not how it seems as the main characters ban together with allies to save those dear to them.  The Veil opens the gate to a new world still being molded by survivors and the paranormal.  Liam and Claire make a great team, although I wish there had been more angst or passion between the two to set the stage.  Strong secondary characters brought depth to the story as well.  Devil's Isle still holds secrets yet to reveal themselves to readers. 
The Viel whet the appetite for more paranormal adventures by Chole Neil.  I look forward to more!
