Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Sight by Chloe Neill

You all know that we love Chloe Neill and her books a ridiculous amount here on Goldilox and the Three Weres. So we're ecstatic that we get to participate in the blog tour for The Sight, book two in the Devil's Isle series! Rose Red and Gretl are bringing you a review of the book, a swag pack giveaway, and information on Chloe's awesome tour wide Grand Prize Giveaway.

The Sight
(Devil's Isle #2)

Release: August 16, 2016

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...
We're doing something a little different with this review - a pros and cons list. You might notice that the pro list is much longer. We really loved The Sight!

  • The Heroine
Claire is one of my favorite parts of this series. She is often afraid but she doesn’t let her fear stop her from doing what she needs to. She has a backbone and I like that. I love that she’s sensible and thinks out most of her actions. She’s always trying to do her best by everyone and I respect that.
  • The Magic
Not only do we see Claire training to be a bounty hunter, we get to see her training to use her powers. This book portrays her powers and her learning curve in a much more believable way than in book one where Claire discovers she has magic and five minutes later she’s saving the world.

  • The Villains
I liked that the “villains” in this book aren’t supernatural, but human zealots. Just like in our world, they’re dangerous and I loved seeing how that transferred into Claire’s world. The cult-like faction made for a different kind of villain than we usually see in UF (even though it's not the first time we've seen it from Neill.)
  • The Supporting Cast
I love that even though Claire has no family of her own anymore, she makes one out of her friends. I need more Moses, Gunnar, Tadji, Burke, Gavin, and Eleanor in my life! I also get excited about new types of supernaturals, so I loved the scenes where Claire traveled around Devil’s Isle and learned about its diverse inhabitants.

  • Potential love triangle
I’m so sick of love triangles! Without being too spoilery, I didn’t think there really was a love triangle. Rather one of the characters is messing with the other two, but it was just weird and kind of creepy.

  • That ending!
Maybe it’s not quite Hard Bitten level rip your heart out and stomp on it, but OW MY FEELS! And I’m not sure that I like the fact that Neill always has the hero doing something idiotically tragic that leaves the heroine bereft in every series.

 4.5 / 5 Stars!
