From the New York Times bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampires Novels—the hunter becomes the hunted in a New Orleans devastated by a Paranormal war….
When bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered that Claire Connolly was a Sensitive and infected with magic, he should have turned her in to be locked up in the prison district known as Devil’s Isle. Instead, he helped her learn to control her power and introduced her to an underground group of Paranormals and humans who know the truth about the war and those who fought it.
Now the weight of Liam’s own secrets has forced him into hiding. When a government agent is killed and Claire discovers that Liam is the prime suspect, she races to find him before the government can. But she’ll discover proving his innocence is no simple matter. Their enemies are drawing closer, and time is running out….
Warning! Mild spoilers below.
At the end of The Sight, Claire was forced to go on the run after her secret of being a Sensitive was exposed to Containment. Even though Claire used her magic to seal the rip in the Veil, Containment doesn’t care and are determined to send to Devil’s Isle. At the start of The Hunt, its been over a month since then and Claire has managed to stay hidden and avoid those who are hunting her. One thing on her mind is Liam Quinn, a bounty hunter and Claire’s love interest, who was hit with magic during the last battle and instead of staying with Claire, Liam leaves her behind and hasn’t contacted her since then. That all changes when his brother, Gavin, finds Claire and tells her that Liam is the prime suspect in the murder of a government agent. Due to the timing, Claire knows Liam couldn’t have done it so with the help of Gavin and Malachi, Claire decides to look for Liam before the agents find him. However, Claire soon learns that Liam’s framing is part of a bigger conspiracy that could bring back war to New Orleans.
Overall, The Hunt was another wonderful novel! It had everything from secrets, lies, conspiracies to startling revelations. The Devil’s Isle series may be set in a post-apocalyptic New Orleans but Chloe Neill has done an amazing job on this urban fantasy series. Sure, at first The Hunt feels that its going at a slow pace but once you get past it then things pick up fast. For those curious about Claire and Liam, don’t want to spoil much but lets there’s a lot of tension between them once they meet up. So if you wanted romaine, lets say there’s a bit but don’t worry I’m sure we’ll have more because it looks like we’re going to get another novel! Though its a bit obvious especially with that cliffhanger ending that Chloe Neill left us with. Not that I’m complaining, in fact I can’t wait for another novel!
