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 . . .

My Review

I had such a great time with this book!  I was really excited to get my hands on an early copy of this newest book in the Devil's Isle series.  This is a series that really should be read in order since each book builds on previous installments.  It has been just under two years since I read the previous book in this series and I have to admit it took me a bit to catch up with everything going on in Claire's world but once my memories started coming back, I was completely hooked. 

Claire, Liam, and the rest of the gang are just trying to hold what they can together in their home of New Orleans.  It was really nice to get the chance to catch up with characters that I have really grown to love over the course of the series.  They have really grown individually and as a group and I love the way that they know that they can depend on each other.  They are also just a lot of fun with some great banter and completely touching moments.

In this installment, the group is battling not only battling supernatural forces but there is also the small matter of a hurricane that threatens the city.  Claire, along with a group of her friends, must go on a rather dangerous mission in order to get the tools needed to save the city and the people she cares about.  It was really interesting to see the pieces come together as I worked my way through this story.  I thought that there was a really nice balance of exciting action, romantic moments, and working on solutions. 

I would recommend this book to others.  This was a book that I didn't want to put down once I got started.  I feel like I have been through a lot with this wonderful group of characters and wanted nothing more than to see them successfully deal with the situation they were in.  I did think that this book felt a little more final than previous books but I am hoping we will get more of this exciting series in the future.

I received a review copy of this book from Berkley Publishing Group.
