I read the first in what will become a series involving a female human protaganist who lives in New Orleans after an invasion of earth by Faerie. The invasion was pushed back and earth is protected by a magical curtain. Humans with magic are persecuted and the remaining non humans live in a controlled area. There is an attempt to reopen the curtain which was not successful. I want to find out the writer so I can keep my eye out for the next books in the series. Thank you for your help with this.
Veil by Chloe Neill
Seven years ago, the Veil that separates us 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.
It's set in New Orleans. It involves a fairy invasion with an energy wall that isolates New Orleans. And it's got a female protagonist who is part of the persecuted group of humans with powers.
