Set in the very atmospheric and mysterious and even superstitious city of NOLA, The Devil's Isle series is one that is not only hard to resist, but hard to put down.

With supernatural creatures galore and magic and danger everywhere, it truly is something to take notice of.

I have enjoyed the wonderful mix of characters from the very beginning with their light hearted banter and witty snarky one liners, they really are a fun group of people set out to save each other and their beloved city.

had such a great time with this book! I was really excited to get my hands on an early copy of this newest book in the Devil's Isle series. This is a series that really should be read in order since each book builds on previous installments. It has been just under two years since I read the previous book in this series and I have to admit it took me a bit to catch up with everything going on in Claire's world but once my memories st
The Beyond was one of the reads that immediately sparked the desire to re-read Chloe Neill's entire Devil's Isle Series...and that is exactly what I did.

Going there might drive her and the other humans insane. But without them, they may nev
I won an ARC in a Goodreads Giveaway. Thanks to Berkley, Chloe Neill and Goodreads for this opportunity to read and provide an honest review. This is the fourth and last book in the series, but it worked for me as a standalone novel.

It is hot and muggy in New Orleans and the few residents left have been fighting another war for almost a year. The Veil between the paranormal world and the human world was torn apart and war is constant. Claire Connolly is a Sensitive. She, her boyfriend and their

Chloe Neill returns with the fourth book in the Devil’s Isle series. I’ve been kind of going back and forth with this series. I really liked it at first, but then found some slow spots in some of the more recent installments in the series. For me, THE BEYOND was a bit of the same. I liked a lot of it, but also felt like many parts dragged, especially in the beginning. Instead of setting a fast pace, this book lingers a bit, but that could be the intention of the author so that there can be

Since this is the last book and I know many of you like to dive in once a series is complete and I will keep things vague.

Claire Connolly, a sensitive and her boyfriend, hunter Liam Quinn join forces with their human and paranormal allies to stop a new threat. A storm is coming to New Orleans ….

This was an exciting, non-stop installment as we see folks settling into this new version of New Orleans. Sensitives are learning to control their magic. Humans and paranormal are living side by side. A n

It's always a happy-sad moment when you come to the end of a series, and The Beyond, the final installment of the Devil's Isle series, is no exception. After living in New Orleans (and moving away a couple years ago), Devil's Isle has held a special place in my heart. Chloe Neill is also an author who does New Orleans right... even though Devil's Isle is somewhat post-magical apocalypse, Neill is spot on with her New Orleans layout and history. I have loved her re-imagining of New Orleans in thi ...more

The Beyond begins about seven months after the conclusion of the third book, The Hunt. The Veil remains open and the humans have a new understanding of magic, Paras, and the Beyond. Now that she doesn’t have to hide her magic, Claire, along with Moses, works to teach new Sensitives how to rid themselves of excess magic so they don’t become Wraiths. Life has been steady and mostly calm, until the day the Seelies attack Devil’s Isle and release a dangerous prisoner. The group is determined to dest ...more
It's been a year since the veil fell and New Orleans has completely changed, many of the survivors have left but those who remain are stubborn and determined to protect what's left of their city. The war has taken it's toll though and when a dangerous new enemy comes looking for revenge Claire and her friends are going to have to take huge risks to save the home that they love.

An excellent conclusion to the series! I hadn’t realized going into it that this was the final book. A powerful enemy decides to get vengeance by destroying New Orleans. They discover that there is only one way to defeat the enemy and it involves a journey into the beyond, which has the potential to be dangerous for many reasons.

It was cool to finally see what it was like on the other side of the veil. Aside from the threat of the fae who lived there, the magic could do harm to Claire and Liam.

The Beyond is the fourth and final installment in author Chloe Neill's Devil Isle series. This series cross blends urban fantasy with a post-apocalyptic setting of New Orleans. 8 years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Those with paranormal powers were confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it

This installment seemed to be slower paced than the last two books. As always with Neill, I enjoyed the banter/humor of her characters and a strong female lead in Claire. She has continued to develop emotionally with each book, and I adored seeing her and Liam working together. I'm still uncertain if this is the finale, as there was no mention of it being the final book. Although it has a fitting end, I would love to see more from this world.

Review originally posted on A Book Obsession

In THE BEYOND, things really come to a head, and it was one heck of a thrill ride. Everything in the Devil’s Isles series has been building up to this point for the ultimate battle. The stakes were incredibly high, and I enjoyed every moment. Crossing over the Veil added a new dimension to the world, and it was fascinating to see how their world was. Both Claire and I *almost* felt sorry for the paras that left there to escape, almost. But the amount o

I always have a good time with this series and I was curious to get into this new volume. I had forgotten a lot of the events of the previous ones, so I didn’t really know exactly what to expect anymore.

We find all the characters we have enjoyed discovering so far, but here we are, the war is more and more present and this time, our heroes will have to face the Seelies attack whose powers could well surpass all they have faced.

Four stars: A turning point in the series. A thrilling story!

Claire is continuing to fight for her friends and the city she loves. New Orleans is in shambles after an eight year war with the paranormals. Claire has learned to not take anything to granted and to appreciate the simple things in life, from happy to reunions to chocolate and wine. Then trouble strikes when a group of powerful Seelies threaten the city and all who live there. The Seelies are the most powerful threat yet. To defeat th

Chloe Neill’s Newest: Never Give-Up, Never Surrender

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader’s copy of this book. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.

I left my hometown at the first possible moment and hardly ever go back. But, my city was divorced from its past by the destruction of the downtown communities and I don’t know that there was anything physically, or, emotionally that I would fight for it

I love this author and I have loved this Devil's Isle series from the start. Somehow, this is an audio series for me. The world and the character of Claire are something special. Claire is mature; she's had to be, since she is on her own. Her skills and practical nature reflect her upbringing.

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

This book took me awhile to really get into. I actually started it and put it down several times, which is why I gave it a 3 star rating.

On the plus side, it picks up half way through. We finally get some action.

The end result of the book wrapped up pretty quick but it was satisfying.

I’ll definitely read the next in the series.
Just meh on this one. The others were much better.

I enjoyed this one more than the last. I actually LOVED the resolution. Micah was getting on my last nerve and I don't know if it was the reader's intonation for him or if it was his character but I lean to the former. It is hard to do so many voices :D and the one she chose for him from the beginning was fine since he was a very small part of the story . . . but here he is a much larger part. The reader may also have been frustrated with her choice. But, she stuck with it! ...more

I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

Chloe Neill brings the heart-pounding Devil’s Isle series to a close with The Beyond! Everything is about to change for Claire and her friends and New Orleans will never be the same again. Things were really intense to this one as the chaos that is New Orleans is about to get even more chaotic. I have to say Chloe did an amazing job with this series and I feel heart

Fourth in the Devil's Isle post-apocalyptic urban fantasy series set in New Orleans and revolving around a core group of friends ranging from Sensitives to Paras to professionals.

My Take
I gotta admit, this reads like the end of the series. A good thing really, as this installment is one of the most dull with minor conflicts and few deep events. Sure I was absolutely appalled by the Prefects' attitude, but that was probably the most exciting conflict.

The conflict between Claire and Liam seems min

I've enjoyed the 'Devil's Isle' series by Chloe Neill, but I think it may well be over now and it kind of slipped away from me. Certainly, this fourth book feels like an ending to everything but that hasn't stopped authors before when publishers come knocking with money for another sequel.

The question is whether I'm satisfied or not and I don't think I am. While I appreciated the ideas that led Neill to create this series, I got a kick out of book one and the sweep is more than capable, I've had

The Beyond by Chloe Neill is the 4th book in her Devil’s Isle series. For a brief refresher: The story takes place in a war ravished New Orleans, where paranormals or those with magic and humans are still plagued by war, though it’s been a year since the Veil between the human world and the world Beyond was torn apart. Our heroine, Claire Connolly (a sensitive) and our hero, Liam Quinn have been helping their human and paranormal allies fight back against the invaders and save New Orleans.

"The Beyond" is my least favorite in the Devil's Isle series because it read a little dull and monotonous. This time Liam has returned to New Orleans after being away on duty. Claire is glad to have him home but he wants to talk about their relationship. With death of her father and the incarceration of her mother, Claire is a little commitment challenged.

Before they can address this issue, seelies assist in helping one of their own escapes from Devil Isle prison. Her name is Aeryth a

This fourth book in the Devil's Isle novels begins with conditions deteriorating in New Orleans. Already nearly a ghost town since the Veil was opened a year earlier, now a new group of Court paras has come to the city with thoughts of revenge.

The seelie are good at controlling the wind and are going to use their powers to halt the newest hurricane, which bids to be as strong as Katrina, over New Orleans until the whole city is destroyed. Claire and Liam and their friends need to find some way
