The paranormal war that engulfed New Orleans seven years ago is over.
But the battle for the city is just beginning . . .
Claire Connolly is a Sensitive, infected with magic when the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell.
Magic can easily consume and destroy a Sensitive, and if Claire’s secret is discovered she’ll be locked into the walled district of Devil’s Isle along with every other Paranormal left in the city.
Bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered Claire’s secret, but refused to turn her in. Together they saved New Orleans from the resurgence of magic that nearly destroyed it.
But now a dangerous cult is on the rise, and it will take both Claire and Liam—and magical allies within Devil’s Isle’s towering walls—to defeat the occult threat before magic corrupts them both...

Three stars: An interesting sequel, but it lacked a bit of something, and I wanted more of the paranormal/magical world.
Claire was hoping things would settle down a bit for her and New Orleans, but unfortunately, a new threat has risen up. The Revellion, a cult, intent on destroying anyone with magic in hopes of returning the world to what it was before the paranormal war. This group is destructive and dangerous. Claire, who is struggling daily to control her own magic before it consumes her, along with Liam, the sexy bounty hunter, decide to take action. What they find is scarier than they anticipated, and it will take an alliance between the paranormals to save them all. Will the rebellion be crushed, or will the city be engulfed in war once again?
What I Liked:
- The Sight is an exciting sequel that drops us back into New Orleans, a city struggling to recover after the invasion by the paranormals through the Veil seven years ago. I love the characters, the setting, and of course, all the paranormal and magic. This book delivers plenty of action and danger.
- Claire is continuing to grow and evolve, and I like how she is becoming stronger and she is no longer afraid of her magic.
- It was interesting following the mystery of the Revillion. I could see how easy it was for this group to gain a following and come to power, and it was shocking to watch how quickly they could undo all the positive changes that had occurred regarding the Paranormals. I especially liked the twist at the end regarding the leader.
- I enjoyed all the action and danger in this one. There is hardly a movement of reprieve. There is always something deadly on the next page.
- The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger, but it did tie up most of the story lines in this book, yet it left plenty of tantalizing new threads for the next book.
And The Not So Much:
- I wish I could put my finger on why this one didn't thrill me like the first. I think I struggled a lot with book amnesia, and I didn't feel like there was enough recap to pull me back into the world. I was disappointed that there wasn't more focus on the Paranormals, Devil's Isle and the magic. The Revillion just wasn't as exciting.
- The romance is frustrating. It was one that I have a feeling will take several books to flourish. There was some movement, finally after a great deal of tension, and then everything takes another step back. It is a romance that is going to require time and patience.
- I was disappointed that there wasn't more from Moses and Liam's grandmother in this book. They were two of my favorite characters from the last book, but there role in this one was rather minimal.
- I didn't like after the dust settled at the end, that all the positive movement with humans and Paranormals seemed to suddenly be wiped out. I am hoping that is not the case.
The Sight is a book that many readers are loving, but for me, it was missing a bit of something. I wanted more magic, and more from the Paranormals. The romance is also a bit frustrating, and the book ended with a bit of a cliffhanger. I am still enjoying this series, and I am hoping it will go back to its roots in the next book.
