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...
Neill wraps up her Devil's Isle series with an emotional fourth adventure (following The Hunt) in which her intrepid heroine confronts her deadliest foe yet. A year after the rending of the Veil, a magical boundary between the human world and the paranormal Beyond, Claire Connolly and her cadre of magical and mundane companions continue to maintain order within the remains of New Orleans. When her bounty hunter partner, Liam Quinn, discovers an encampment of Seelie air spirits poised for a final, apocalyptic battle, Claire and her comrades decide their only hope lies in recreating the Devil's Snare, a weapon designed to strip away the victim's magic. But in order to do so, they must infiltrate the Beyond, steal the weapon's magical components, and reassemble the parts before the air spirits unleash the most powerful hurricane in history. The plot itself is formulaic, and the villain's story is far too complex for the quick resolution provided, but Neill's character development is sure to keep series devotees engaged until the final showdown. This is a satisfying end to Claire's magical journey of self-discovery.
