Into the Fire (The Thin Veil, Book 2) by Jodi McIsaac
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 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.
‘Into the Fire’ (The Thin Veil, Book 2) by Jodi McIsaac, is another well written novel. ‘Book 2’ continues with the exciting journey of Cedar, and her daughter, Eden. The two are very interested in going to live with Eden’s father, Finn, and the rest of the Tuatha De Danann in Tir na nog.
They arrive to find that they have to fight against Nuala, again. Nuala has nearly convinced the council that she should be Queen. Cedar was the true Queen of Tir na nog, but she doesn’t want anything to do with it. Neither does she want Nuala to be Queen. She knew first-hand, that Nuala was evil.
The council challenges Cedar to find the ‘Lia Fial’, which is the lost Stone of Destiny; lost for hundreds of years. Cedar finds herself dragging her family and friends across Tir na nog and Earth.
Jodi McIsaac, once again, writes an excellent novel with highly defined characters. ‘Book 2’ contains a plot with many twists and turns. Celtic lore with the magical and mystical elements of Dragons, Druids, Dwarfs, Fairies, and Leprechauns. The novel contains lush and vivid scenery.
I loved ‘Into the Fire’ (The Thin Veil, Book 2) by Jodi McIsaac. I recommend it to all readers of fantasy and paranormal.
