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 was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
THE VEIL is a wonderful masterpiece. The characters and story line are very well crafted. Claire is a sensitive. A human who is able to absorb magic and now has different magical ability. When the veil between humanity and the world beyond split open, a war broke out destroying the south eastern portion of the U.S.A . Now anyone with any magic must be captured, for magic is illegal. Claire has telekinesis, and must keep it a secret. Someone wants to open the Veil and wage war with those behind it. Claire and Liam, a bounty hunter, must stop them before they open it. I loved this book, and cannot wait to read the next one. I give THE VEIL 5/5 STARS. I recommend this book to everyone.
