The stunning conclusion to Rae Carson’s New York Times–bestselling Gold Seer trilogy
Leah Westfall’s journey has been one of ever-present peril, hidden magic, harsh realities, loss, life, determination, and love. She has searched for a place to belong and a place to call home, and people who can accept a girl with magical powers that prove to be both blessing and curse.
Rae Carson has been lauded as one of YA’s best writers of fantasy, and fans of Leigh Bardugo, Sarah J. Maas, and Westworld will be riveted by the conclusion of this remarkable historical fantasy trilogy.
Leah is poised to have everything she ever dreamed of on the long, dangerous journey to California’s gold fields—wealth, love, the truest friends, and a home. Thanks to her magical ability to sense precious gold, Leah, her fiancé Jefferson, and her friends have claimed rich land in California Territory. But their fortune makes them a target, and when a dangerous billionaire sets out to destroy them, Leah and her friends must fight back with all of their power and talents.
Leah’s magic is continuing to strengthen and grow, but someone is on to her—someone who might have a bit of magic herself. The stakes are higher than ever as Lee and her friends hatch a daring scheme that could alter California’s history forever.
With a distinctive heroine and a unique interpretation of American history, Into the Bright Unknown strikes a rich vein of romance, magic, and adventure.

I thoroughly enjoyed this final book in the trilogy. I very much enjoy historical fiction. It's a fine way to learn history. I couldn't wait to see how the characters lives continued. And best of all...a happy ending.
*please read this review only if you read the first two books* When Leah thought that all is good because her uncle is not after her. This time a rich conspirator is another man they have to face. When I read/listened to this book, I didn't read the book description. So in my mind, I was thinking that Leah is off to see her mom's family, and learn what her ties are to her witchy sense. But I was so wrong! I never thought that the person who helped them would be the person who'd cheat them. So it was definitely was a story that I never expect. Sadly, there aren't a lot of romance aspect between Leah and Jefferson, cause I thought they were the cutest. But the book wasn't short in romance. I have to commend the author for the way she wrote the book. I like that the reader is also guessing what's happening in the book. I also want to raise a good point that the author is trying to share to her readers: a person's actions does not define whether a person is good or evil. And it's definitely a running theme to majority of the new characters we meet in the book. This was such a good book, and an amazing series. Sad to see it go, but that ending gave me the warmth and fuzzies. Good stuff!
This book captured me from the beginning. Very hard to put it down.
I enjoyed this series.
