Waiting on Wednesday (21) The Veil

Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases that we're excited about.

This week, I'm waiting on...

Title: The Veil: A Devil's Isle Novel
Author: Chloe Neill
Pages: 352
Publisher: NAL
Release Date: August 4, 2015

Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil's Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

As more and more Sensitives fall prey to their magic, and unleash their hunger on the city, Claire and Liam must work together to save New Orleans, or else the city will burn…

This looks really good.  And pretty interesting.

What are you waiting on?

  3. This is the second time I've seen this one today and today is the first day I've heard of it!! I'll definitely have to check this out since everyone seems to be excited for it!

    Here's my WoW!

  4. This has been hovering just outside my radar for so long. I've seen the cover, heard it mentioned, but never pursued it. My loss, because it sounds really good! Thanks for getting it all the way on my radar and now on my goodreads TBR list. Great pick! And thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :)

  5. YEAHHHHHHHHHH. I'm excited for this one too! I obviously mostly read YA but this is the kind of stuff I love outside of YA. I never really finished her other series (SO MANY BOOOOKKKKSSS) but I'm determined to read this one!

    1. I know I obviously mostly read YA too. I usually try to throw in some classics and other stuff but I've been so behind lately I haven't been reading much in terms of diversity.

  6. I have an ARC of this which I really need to start this weekend. I love Chloe Neill's other series, so I hope this one is good as well.
