Synopsis

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 . . .

Review

The Beyond is the last book in the series and quite frankly I was absolutely not disappointed. We find all the elements that make up the quality of Chloe Neill’s stories.

The danger is imminent, between the storm and the faes no one knows where to turn and unfortunately it will be necessary to make difficult decisions.

Claire is an independent, strong person who wants to protect her city and the people she loves at all costs. I really like her personality; in this book she asks herself a lot of questions about herself, about her future and about her relationship with Liam. I appreciated seeing her looking for herself in this volume, she is not perfect and especially her fears have resurfaced.

Liam tries to protect everyone; he also tries to learn to live with his powers. I love this man, he is tender, passionate, a little stubborn but he knows what he wants.

We see a lot of Malachi in this volume and I must admit that I also like him. Just like Gunnar.

The story ends and it is with a little pinch in my heart that I say goodbye to all these characters that I loved and with whom I enjoyed spending time.

Quick Word: A very well conducted final to close an exciting series.

Chronique

The Beyond est le dernier livre de la série et très franchement je n’ai absolument pas été déçue. On retrouve tous les éléments qui font la qualité des histoires de Chloe Neill.

Le danger est imminent, entre la tempête et les faes personne ne sait où donner de la tête et malheureusement il va falloir prendre des décisions difficiles.

Claire est une personne indépendante, forte qui veut à tout prix protéger sa ville et les personnes qu’elle aime. J’aime beaucoup sa personnalité, dans ce livre elle se pose beaucoup de questions sur elle-même, sur son avenir et sur sa relation avec Liam. J’ai apprécié de la voir se chercher dans ce tome, elle  n’est pas parfaite et surtout ses peurs ont ressurgies.

Liam quant à lui essaie de protéger tout le monde, il essaie aussi d’apprendre à vivre avec ses pouvoirs. J’aime cet homme, il est tendre, passionné, un peu têtu mais il sait ce qu’il veut.

On voit beaucoup Malachi dans ce tome et je dois avouer que je l’apprécie également. Tout comme Gunnar.

L’histoire se termine et c’est avec un petit pincement au cœur que je dis au revoir à tous ces personnages que j’ai aimé et avec qui j’ai apprécié de passer du temps.

En bref : Un final très bien mené pour clôturer une série passionnante.
