Synopsis (from GR)
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….
This is the third book of the series and a lot has happened in the previous ones. Liam fled and abandoned Claire, the latter having unveiled her powers to save her people is forced to hide. That doesn’t stop her with Moses to help the para locked up at Devil’s Isle.
Gavin and Malachi go to look for Liam to inform him that he is now suspect and wanted for murder. Claire, despite all the divergent feelings she has towards Liam, go with them, they will try to prove that he cannot be guilty since he was not there.
I love Claire, she has character, she stand up for herself. She seeks above all to protect herself, and those she loves. She’s sad for various reasons, the first being that the more you advance in the series, the more she learns that her father hid things from her. The second reason is that she begins to learn more about her mother and it complicates many things. Finally, the third is the fact that she has a hard time understanding why Liam ran away, she sees it as an abandon and is going to struggle to ignore this feeling.
Liam, on his part, fled because he didn’t master the magic he had just acquired. This frightened him and he didn’t want to impose this on Claire. When Claire comes to look for him, their relationship is quite tense but we feels perfectly the love that they have for each other. I love Liam, he’s a pigheaded, certainly, but he’s great, sexy, funny, intelligent, a little possessive and especially he’s protective.
There are of course Moses, Gavin, Malachi, Derby, Gunnar and some others.
Chloe Neill set the scenery in the first book, but now we are in full action and I love what Chloe Neill does with the characters. I love her writing style and I’m admiring the world she created here. This series really deserves to be translated in French and I look forward to know the continuation of the adventures of Claire and Liam because the war is coming.
Quick Word: A thrilling third book that plunges us completely into the story of Claire and Liam.
