The Hunt is the third installment in Chloe Neill's urban fantasy series titled Devil's Isle. It is a wonderful addition to this series and is my favorite installment to date. Mystery, action, suspense, maturing powers, romance, game-changing revelations it was an engaging read that I easily flew through (via audio). If you follow this series, get your hands on this one sooner rather than later. You won't regret it!My favorite quote:“Sometimes the ones who cry loudest for war don't really wan [...]
Magic, mystery, mayhem and murder, The Hunt is the perfect urban fantasy book vacation!Liam Quinn is in hiding and coming to terms with the magical back lash that left him with abilities that at best would get him locked up for life. Claire isn’t sure where she stands with Liam and is trying to deal with NOLA. When NOLA decides to blame/frame Liam for a murder, he didn’t commit. It becomes a race against the clock to find Liam and prove his innocence all before the government gets his hands [...]
This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was a really good book! I was really excited to dive back into this series after reading and enjoying the first two installments. This was a solid addition to the series. I feel that this is a series that really does need to be read in order since the events in each book builds on the earlier events. I found myself really getting hooked by the story and I ended up most of it in a single day.Claire and the rest of the crew are la [...]

Now Liam is in trouble and Claire is determined to return the favor and will do all she can to protect Liam from the government’s deadly claws by proving him innocent of murder.

Picking up one of Neill's books is a lot like coming home. It is so good to see familiar cherished faces and a setting that is every bit as appealing and beautifully described as the plot is entertaining and hard to forget. In short, a place you don't mind going to time and time again and in fact, wish you could visit more often. A place you love and think about even when you aren't immersed in the world that she has created.That is what it has been like each time I have picked up a book in the [...]
Did you know that visiting New Orleans has always been a dream of mine? One day I’ll go there, stay for a month, eat fabulous food, listen to their gorgeous dialects and enjoy the music and the flavorful air. In the meantime, though, my very favorite thing are books set in New Orleans that give me a sense of its gorgeous atmosphere, no matter how brief. Chloe Neill’s Devil’s Isle books show us a different New Orleans, a city forever changed by magic and fear. Still, the author succeeded in [...]
After being outed as a Sensitive during the last big battle Claire is having to keep a very low profile to avoid Containment catching her and imprisoning her in Devil's Isle. She's no longer able to run her store so she's focusing her energies on scavenging for useful supplies for people who aren't as lucky as she is. Liam's life was changed forever when he was hit with a blast of magic during the battle, Claire knows it gave him new abilities but he's kept his distance from her ever since it ha [...]
The Hunt is the perfect finale to the The Veil series, although I am extremely sad that it's over and would to continue further with the both the wonderful story and the incredible characters that Chloe Neill created for this wonderful trilogy if I could.The book continues the story shortly after the events of the end of the previous book. Liam is still missing and Claire is keeping herself to herself by keeping a low profile. After finding out that Liam is the number one suspect in the murder o [...]
This third installment of Chloe Neill’s Devil’s Isle series holds up consistently with the two books before it; in other words, if you enjoyed those, you will probably like this one too. It picks up right where The Sight left off. Claire is on the run after exposing her magic in the last book’s big battle, and she is scavenging for supplies to lend assistance to the paranormals who are still under lock and key.Liam is gone, having bailed after he was imbued with magical powers of his own. [...]
This series needs to be read in order. The Hunt starts off 5 weeks from where The Sight ends. The tension is ramped up several notches in this installment. It’s filled with action, heartache, betrayal, fear, friendship, and death. Claire spends a lot of time in an emotional turmoil over Liam, secrets that she is finding out about her family, and what she can do to change the world for the better for those paranormals in it. When Liam comes back in the picture the tension between him and Claire [...]
The tension was brought up several notches in The Hunt! There was heartache, action, fear, betrayal, fights, and death.
No rating because I skimmed a lot. This one just didn't hold my interest, and everything I don't care for in Neill’s writing was forefront. CN has never been a particularly adult writer, but this was more juvenile than ever before.From the ‘do you like me check yes or no’ angst, the YA tone of the writing and characters, the over description of absolutely everything, the repetitive and rambling storyline full of angst and silly drama, the Nancy Drew does pnr type mystery…nothing worked f [...]
For whatever reason, The Hunt wasn't as good as its predecessors, it was a little slow in gathering momentum and when it eventually got to where it needed to be, there wasn't a lot to be desired.The love story between Liam and Claire catches fire again with this book but again, the story in itself is short lived. Everything seemed to be a little slow then a little rushed.It's a bit disheartening when one book in the series becomes the one book that makes you wonder whether you will continue or n [...]
Full review to follow.
Three and a half Well this the third book catches up with Claire as she's managing just to maintain some semblance of normality. She no longer runs her store but has hunkered down in her late fathers secret bolt hole. Claire is trying hard to avoid Containment as the last thing she needs is to be incarcerated on Devil's Isle but being a Sensitive and able to use magic means she's constantly looking over her shoulder. Magic hit New Orleans hard leaving widespread paranoia but what it hasn't left [...]
Gads. I need the next book yesterday. RTC.
Grade: C+Favorite Quote: “We’re family, Claire. Granted, a kind of weird, dysfunctional family, but family all the same.”The Hunt picks up a couple of months after book two, The Sight, ended. Claire is lying low to avoid being sent to Devil’s Isle after using her magic to help defeat the Reveillon. Firmly outed as a Sensitive, she has given her store to her best friend and now uses her skills to help those in need. Liam is still missing, having disappeared after being hit with magic duri [...]
Warning! This review may have spoilers for the earlier books in the series. If you have not read the earlier books go do that, like, right now!In this third installment of the Devil's Isle series, we are fresh off the failed attempt to open the veil between New Orleans and the Beyond, and secrets are out for our main characters, Claire Connolly and Liam Quinn. Claire had to use magic during the battle, and Liam got hit with magic so both of them will have to avoid being rounded up by Containment [...]
Chloe Neill's book may not be for me. I gave up on CLV, and I'm about ready to give up on this series. For one thing the pacing is slow. I never got invested in the plot in this book. It took me a few days to get through this. Every time I put it down I had no desire to pick it back up again. After 3 books, I'm not deeply attached to any of the characters. I like Liam and Claire, but don't care about anyone else. Although I like Liam and Claire, they are not unique. This picked up a few weeks af [...]
I am a huge fan of Neill and when my beloved Chicagoland Vampires ended this year, I decided to delve into her latest series, The Devi’s Isle. Set in the city of New Orleans, I once again found myself invested in another magical world. After the looming cliffhanger from The Sight, I’ve been wondering all summer, what would happen with Liam and Claire?Because even though I knew why he’d gone, it still hurt to be left behind.The beginning is somewhat slow and the focus is mainly on Claire an [...]
Hunt is the third book in the Devil's Isle series, and one I was eager to read. After the events of the previous book, The Sight, I had to know what was going on, and what happened to Liam.We are thrown into the plot pretty fast with Hunt, Broussard has been found dead, and Liam is suspect number 1, with anyone associated with him also on a list to detain and question. Determined to prove his innocence Claire travels with Gavin and Malachi to find Liam and warm him, whilst they also try to find [...]
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I kicked off my October TBR with this little gem last week! Yaaaaay! I'm loving this series, it's easy to read, has plenty of action and romance and is set in an interesting world with plenty of originality to it. It's such a good Halloween read and if you haven't read this series yet, you can easily binge read it! With this third instalment, we're straight in to the plot with no messing around. About a month or so has passed since the end of the last book [...]
review to come
Everyone is trying to stay under Containment's radar since Claire's magic was shown during the fight with Ezekiel. Some of the Paras got passes after the battle and are living on the outside. Moses was pretty much coming and going as he pleased at the end of The Sight, and he is a pretty good companion for Claire. They scavenge and pass on to the Devil's Isle clinic anything they find that might be needed. Until Gavin alerts them that there has been a murder and Liam is the prime suspect. After [...]
Claire saved Devil’s Island and Containment in the last book. But she did it using magic and in doing so may have cost herself everything She is now a fugitive, a magic user who, by law, should be locked up in Devil’s Isle before she becomes a dangerous wraith. And the man she loves, Liam, was infected by magic in that battle and now seems unable to even endure her presence having disappeared for weeks. But when a government agent is killed and Liam is framed, Claire can’t afford to give h [...]
Picking up about five weeks after the intense conclusion of the previous book, The Hunt opens with our heroine, the Sensitive Claire, in hiding with Para Moses. Unfortunately, Liam, her boyfriend who was struck by magic in that battle, went into hiding with his grandmother, Eleanor. Even though Claire refuses to ask the resistance leader Malachi about Liam, she is worried for him and misses him. However, their enemy in Containment, Jack Broussard, is dead and the top suspect is Liam. So Claire, [...]
While the action was on point with each scene, the resolution that we have long anticipated between Claire and Liam was worth the wait, the mystery segments added to the overall picture of the story plot and the rest of the elements came together to create a good third book as well. However, for me it was not great in the respect that if this is the end of the series/trilogy it has left us with unresolved issues as for me what happened did not finish the book it only created a new story arc and [...]
Really enjoyed this one, except for the battle scene which seemed rushed and somewhat stupid. It was really unclear how one side even won. I really don't think action scenes are CN's forte because I remember thinking this in her Chicagoland Vampires series. Anyhoo, loved Claire and Liam, looking forward to the next one
*Source* Publisher*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*Full Review Shortly*Welp, apparently three books wasn't enough to wrap up this story. There will be a fourth book. Cruel, cruel ending to this story. Didn't need do what the author did.
Mystery, murder, and magic! Oh, my! This picks up a few weeks after the battle in the previous book, and Claire's little group has dispersed. Liam is gone, while Claire keeps a low profile in the city, not knowing where he is or if he'll come back. When there's a murder and the evidence points to Liam as the killer, the gang is gets back together to prove otherwise. This isn't a simple murder case, no. It's way more sinister and dangerous.Claire has certainly come a long way since the first book [...]
