In continuing my Devil’s Isle reread in preparation for book four, The Beyond, I recently picked up The Sight. I loved this book just as much this time around, so I’m recycling my original review. (With a few tweaks.) I’m enjoying this reread so much and can’t believe how much I forgot about this world! There is so much action and so much to learn. And after that cliffhanger – I am dying to find out what happens in The Hunt!
The Sight by Chloe Neill

| Book Review |
If you’re just picking up this book, take a deep breath. Starting up from where The Veil left off, the author wastes no time tossing us right into the middle of the action that is Devil’s Isle. For this reason, I suggest not reading The Sight until you have read the first book in this series.
There was so much to love about this book:
Claire’s friends and their obvious matchmaking attempts with her and Liam were hilarious. Claire and Liam are able to take it all with a grain of salt and laugh along with them.
Malachi – oh, man. I loved Malachi. Up until now, Moses was my favorite para, but Malachi has him beat. There is a story there that I’m thirsting for, and I can’t wait to hear more of it.
The secondary characters – mainly Claire and Liam’s support systems. I love them all, even when they’re pissing me off. Gavin is my favorite. I love the sibling love/hate relationship between him and Liam. It’s so fun to read.
The way Claire’s magic is described is so interesting, and I love that the descriptions and force of her magic change with her moods.
There are some great one-liners in this story, and while the circumstances are intense in this book, the author manages to keep it light with witty dialogue and banter.
Liam is doing his best to combat his feelings for Claire, and he does a pretty decent job of it. But I love that he can’t contain his jealousy or those possessive feelings! And oh, the tension. Loving all this tension!
Claire is level-headed. Yeah, she makes mistakes just like everyone else, but she learns from them. And she doesn’t pretend to be tougher than she is. That’s one of my favorite things about her. Take her or leave her, but she’s going to be who she is.
There was some headway made between the paras and humans in this one, and while it wasn’t a huge leap, it was realistic for the story line. I’m interested to see where it goes from here.
There was a lot to love about The Sight, and with that cliffhanger ending, I cannot wait to dive into The Hunt!
Audiobook Review: Just like the first book in this series, Amy Landon narrated this one. I do love when there is narrator continuity, especially when it’s one this spectacular. I feel Amy Landon understands these characters and does a great job portraying them. I’m so glad to see she is also narrating The Hunt!
*In the interest of disclosure, I feel I should add that I originally received this for review from the publisher. As it’s a story I knew I’d read over and over again, I purchased it myself from Audible.
