    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.The fae have broken through the veil, now the outed sensitive, Claire and her companions must find a way to stop the war and devastation that they are bringing to the human realm the only problem seems the answer might be on the other side of the broken veil. Going there might drive her and the other humans insane.

But without them, they may never convince the fae to turn over the relic that they need to survive.As always, Chloe Neill pens a riveting, pulse intensifying adventure with genuine characters reads love to read about. Magic, mayhem and romance, what more could this avid reader wish for.

    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. An excellent conclusion to the series! I hadn’t realized going into it that this was the final book.

Aside from the threat of the fae who lived there, the magic could do harm to Claire and Liam. Claire absorbs the magic and Liam fights off the desire to, so having lots of magic around them was dangerous.Claire finally showed considerable growth as a character, which made me happy. It is unfortunate that the series is over because there were many good characters. Overall I liked the way everything was wrapped up.I received this from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    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 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 to halt the seelie's plans before the city they love is completely destroyed.When they receive news of a possible weapon that can strip the magic from magical beings, they don't think that they have a choice other than to find the plans and the components and use it to get rid of the threat.Finding the components means that they will have to travel through the Veil into the land of Elysium and convince the ruling Consularis to give up the essential piece they hold. The journey is hard and the Consularis unwilling to get involved in a war on Earth. Their trip also gives them a chance to see what the Consularis have made of their world and they aren't impresses. Outwardly perfect and happy, dissent is punished harshly. It seems apparent that the Consularis were glad when their dissentors decided to go through the Veil and take their war to Earth. Claire has to do a lot of soul-searching in this one as she wonders if it is finally time to give up on the city she loves. She does come to realize that what she loves are the people she has made into her new family and, if necessary, she could find a satisfying life elsewhere. The story was engaging. The characters well drawn. And the situation desperate. The plot was fast-paced and I loved the details about New Orleans.

    The final book in the Devil's Isle series is page turner. I devoured it quickly even though I didn't want to say goodbye to these characters. I was immediately engrossed in this series from the first page of The Veil and have devoured each and every book not wanting to put them down until the last word was read.

I was immediately engrossed in this series from the first page of The Veil and have devoured each and every book not wanting to put them down until the last word was read. Neill has a way with words and worlds. Her world building draws you right in and her characters keep you coming back for more. In the Devil's Isle series she created a fascinating post-apocalyptic New Orleans, a place familiar to most of us, but foreign at the same time with the way a supernatural war has changed it.The Beyond takes us deeper into this world as a new threat wants to destroy New Orleans for good, to eradicate it of humanity in an act of vengeance. The Fae have powers stronger than any others that have come through The Veil. It's going to take a weapon designed by paranormals to take down this new threat. Claire, Liam, and their team must travel into The Beyond to find what they need to save New Orleans. Claire has to accept who she is, the power she has, and those in her life who are important to her.The journey into The Beyond takes them to Elysium, a strange place, a perfect place where imperfections are hidden and punished. Claire's crew has to meet with the Consularis and try to convince them to give up the piece of the weapon they have. Of course they want no part in Earth's troubles. So they have to improvise, which takes the fight back through the veil to New Orleans.Claire's character growth throughout the series was wonderful and her relationship with Liam was one I have been rooting for the entire time.I wish this wasn't the last book but things were left in a way that wrapped everything up.

    I cant believe 'Devil's Isle' is done. I could live in Claire and Liam's world forever. This is the 4th and final book in the series. Im sad to see it go. But I liked the way it ended.

A natural progression of relationships over the series that ended in normal ways. Whether someone left to back to 'their world' or continuing in their relationships to the next step. The threat - 'The Beyond' - is on the other side of the Veil which divides Terra ( Earth) and the Beyond ( paranormal entities and nephilium). Not everyone on the other side is nice and there are some evil beings who'd like to get rid of humans - magic bearers or not - and destroy the Earth for a variety of reasons. The author handled this well also. Nothing was 1-2-3-done. Not wrapped up in a tidy bow. In other words, normal not just HEA. I may be biased since Ms Neill is one of my favorite authors but if you havent read this series yet, you need to add it to your TBR right away. Thank you to Chloe Neill and Random House for giving me the opportunity to read this ARC

    I enjoyed this series very much despite issues of certain dialect and technical issues. Claire and Liam are a well developed characters and I can see the finality of the series coming after the last book. I think the author has exceed expectations with this book and ties it up nicely. I am saddened though because this is her second series in less than two years to end for me. I know she has started another, but they are still missed.

I am saddened though because this is her second series in less than two years to end for me. I know she has started another, but they are still missed. Chloe Neill is a great author about knowing when to move on and create new characters to enjoy. I would defiantly recommend this series and have to several of our customers.Thank you to NetGalley and Berkley Books for the E-arc copy of #TheBeyond. An extra thank you to Ms. Neill for giving readers such wonderful characters to enjoy.
