Claire Connolly has magic. Unfortunately magic is illegal since the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell and started a war. Humans won the war, but not everyone is happy with the results. The paranormals grow restless in prison on Devil's Island. And a group of humans feels that incarceration isn't enough, that only destruction will return the world to what it once was. With Clair straddling a precarious center line, she just may have to finally make the jump to one side or another.

I enjoyed the character of Claire and the strength of her beliefs and motivations. Since I was coming in on the second book in a series, it took a little adjusting to get into, but that took nothing away from a strong, fast-paced story that will keep you reading late into the night. The romantic element wasn't too distracting (as they can sometimes be), and the world-building was interesting. I always like see a fresh take on what would happen if magic came into our modern world. All in all, a strong book and a sure winner for fans of urban fantasy or paranormal.
