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 figh ...more
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 ...more

Going there might drive her and the other humans insane. But without them, they may nev ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

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. ...more

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The Beyond by Chloe Neill is book 4 and the final book in the Devil's Isle series. We start off a few months from the ending of book 3 where a tear is created between the worlds that have unleashed more paranormals. The structure in New Orleans has changed and the Consularis paras have been released from Devil's Isle to help against the war with t...more
*Genre* Urban Fantasy
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 ...more
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. ...more
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 ...more
My English review
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.
I thought it was great that for ...more

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 ...more
Review copy was received from Publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.
At the end of The Hunt, I expect ...more
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 ...more
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.
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

"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 ...more
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 ...more
