Review: The Veil by 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.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…

My Thoughts:
I am so excited to have a new series to get hooked on!  This book has all my "must haves" to make it a great read.  Great characters.  Claire is both brave and vulnerable.  She has survived the war and adjusted to a simple life in New Orleans.  She didn't let the war break her despite all that it took from her.  Liam is the perfect "knight in tarnished armor".  He's seen the side of war that most people haven't and he knows that the lines are not so evenly drawn.  When he decides to help Claire instead of taking her in as just another bounty; life starts to get a lot more complicated for them both.
The original story concept and steady pace of action made this book one of my new favorites.  I can't wait to read the next one!

For readers 16 & up.  Mild to moderate sexual content and adult situations.
