Synopses & Reviews
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: shes a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devils 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 attackin full view of the French QuarterLiam decides to bring her to Devils Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isnt the same as keeping her out of his head.
But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn
"The bestselling author of the popular Chicagoland Vampires series heads south for her new paranormal series. In an alternate version of the present day, the shattering of the magical Veil between our world and the world beyond released paranormal invaders. The subsequent magical war devastated the American South, leaving New Orleans in ruins. Seven years after the breach, the Veil has been patched, but military containment forces continue to hunt for banned magic, murderous wraiths, and human Sensitives created by magical seepage from the Veil. French Quarter shopkeeper Claire Connelly accidentally reveals her hidden telekinetic abilities while helping to fight off a wraith. Fortunately, sexy bounty hunter Liam Quinn agrees to keep her secret as long as she learns to control her ability. Before long, Claire is helping Liam investigate the increasing deadliness of wraith attacks, but complications ensue when they uncover a plot to reopen the Veil. The story moves fitfully at first, as Neill works to establish her setting and characters, but once the foundation is laid, the pace becomes brisk. Neill's large cast of characters offers plenty of possibilities for future series intrigue and action. Agent: Lucienne Diver, Knight Agency. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
