Overview

Cedar McLeod would like nothing more than to return to Tír na nÓg, help rebuild the mythical kingdom, and start a new life for herself and her daughter, Eden. But peace is isn’t what Cedar finds after being reunited with her little girl.

Nuala — who kidnapped and terrorized Eden in her previous bid for power—has returned and is making a persuasive claim for the vacant throne. The devastation such a ruler would bring upon both the kingdom and the human world is unthinkable. With no one else to stake a convincing counter-claim, Cedar steps forward . . . but first she must prove her worth beyond a doubt.

Her opportunity comes when she is charged with finding an ancient treasure, the Stone of Destiny, and returning it to its rightful home. It is a quest that will lead her to question her beliefs, and push her loyalties to their limits. If she succeeds, Cedar could grant her new world and her new family a chance to flourish again. If not . . . destruction may be the only path ahead.

Into the Fire, the second book in the Thin Veil series, is a captivating blend of Celtic myth, mystery, and adventure that delves deeper into the ancient world first explored in Through the Door.

Cedar McLeod is the daughter of the last High King, who appears to have very little power much to her dismay. Cedar's daughter Eden has been reunited with her father Finn and now a happy little family. Meanwhile Nuala is doing her best to make herself queen but The Council is hesitant to do so. Nuala is allowing Lorcan's work in helping to discredit Cedar further. When Cedar learns that Nuala is attempting to gain something she clearly doesn't deserve. Before The Council will accept Cedar as queen she must find The Stone of Destiny in a weeks time. Cedar will do anything to stop Nuala. What is Nuala planning? Will The Stone of Destiny be found? Your answers await you in Into the Fire. This book picks up right where Through the Door left off. New and old favorite characters make appearances through out the whole book. I find this to be a compelling and unique read. I'm definitely curious to see what happens in the next book.

Cedar McLeod had a quiet life before the action in Through the Door, the first book in The Thin Veil series. A tired, overworked single mother, Cedar and her daughter Eden still manage to have a happy life. But one day, things change drastically. For Eden is more than she seems. So very, very much more. A single open door sends Eden and Cedar on a terrifying slide into horror and despair, as the teachings of Cedar’s mother, to not ever tell Eden of her father, pushes a child to make a devastating error – an error which cost lives, and lead to the kidnapping and terrorizing of Eden, and a trip across space and time to the land of Tír na nÓg, and a battle to save two worlds. As Into the Fire, the second in The Thin Veil series, begins Eden and Cedar, and their newly found family, including Eden’s father Finn, have returned to Tír na nÓg. Destined for the throne, Cedar finds instead that Nuala, Eden’s kidnapper and the partner of the destroyer of Tír na nÓg, has entranced the Council, and is making a strong bid for the throne herself. Though Cedar’s parents were the King and Queen before their deaths and baby Cedar’s banishment to Earth, she finds that she must fight for her position, and for the protection of her family – and to save Tír na nÓg from the evil Nuala. It won’t be easy, and she will have to fight against the very people who should be working to help her, but in order to save her world, it must be done. Filled with Celtic myth, mystery, suspense and adventure, this second installment of The Thin Veil series is as good, if not better than, the first – and I great look forward to the third! I received this book from the publisher in return for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own.

Into the Fire, The Thin Veil (Book Two), Jodi McIsaac Review from jeannie zelos book reviews So we're on to book two in the trilogy. I loved book one with its Fae and human worlds and charaters, so wondered where Jodi would take the story next. You'd think after she'd despatched the wicked Lorcan the Fae coucil would be pleased to see Cedar, but Nuala once again is persuading people things aren't as they seemed. She's come up with a plan to be Queen, and the only way to stop her is for Cedar to stand too....she knows its devastation for the human world if Nuala wins, but she's not going to fight Cedar fairly of course so the challenge is tough. Cedar is once again thrust into a world of magic and mayhem, along with Eden, Finn and their friends. They find help from unexpected sources, and get denied help from others they thought they could rely on. Add to that they need to decide just who they can trust as there's some dounble dealing going on. It all adds up to a gripping ride, with adventures and incidents that feel real - within the realms of fantasy of course. Jodi doesn't rely on that favourite but much derided standby of hero/heroines getting new powers just at the right moment, but makes us wait, makes us work out just how things can end, and I really enjoyed this trip into fantasy. Paranormal is full of vampires and shifters, and though some of the Fae here can shift the world is mostly Fae and magics, something that's fun and more unusual. A great read, and i'm looking forward to how the story ends. Stars: Four and a half – a good fun read, I'd have liked a bit more romance...but that me :-) it's not classed as romance but it adds to the enjoyment for me, but not for everyone. It's a book adults and teens alike can enjoy. ARC supplied via Netgalley

Get ready to get lost in the mystery and mayhem of Tír na nÓg once again, as author Jodi McIsaac magically transports us back through the Veil in book two of the series, Into the Fire. Cedar McLeod has Eden back and with Finn at her side, she is learning her way around her new world. When the realm seeks a new ruler, the evil and self-serving Nuala steps forward, convincing the council she is the best qualified. Knowing Nuala’s rule spells nothing but disaster for both the magical and human realm, Cedar is compelled to challenge her for the crown. Doubtful of her ability to rule, the council gives Cedar an impossible task and little time to fulfill their demands. The Stone of Destiny has been missing for eons and finding it would be similar to finding a needle in a haystack. Will Cedar succeed? Can she trust those who claim to be her allies? What secrets will the stone reveal if its legendary powers are still intact? From the start, Jodi McIsaac plunges us back into the world of Celtic legends and myth, as she takes us on a journey that spans thousands of miles, and ramps up the tension as the clock counts down! With a cast of characters who have distinct traits and personalities, Ms. McIsaac has brought the story to life with her own brand of magic. Each scene feels real, I wasn’t looking in on the story, I was there and felt like I was visiting all of the places the characters did! Ever want to fly with a dragon? Go undercover with a butterfly? Face off against powerful beings? Test your commitment to your beliefs, your love for family and friends, at the same time as the characters do? You can do that, all while being lost between the covers of Into the Fire! I received an ARC edition in exchange for my honest review as part of the Into the Fire book Tour stopping at Tome Tender and I honestly wished I had the magic to make book three appear immediately!
