Synopsis from Goodreads

Life just keeps getting more complicated for Cedar McLeod. As the recently crowned queen of Tír na nÓg, she’s trying to understand her magical new kingdom, even as she misses her life back on Earth. It doesn’t help that a dear friend has just betrayed her—a betrayal that almost cost Cedar and her family their lives. And things aren’t easy at home, either, as Cedar’s seven-year-old daughter, Eden, lost and lonely in Tír na nÓg despite her special powers, has become painfully distant.

Cedar vows to do whatever it takes to protect her family once and for all, and starts rounding up those who plotted against her. But then a new disaster breaks out: a mysterious sickness is plaguing the Unseen, Ireland’s magical creatures, including those Cedar knows and loves. With enemies still on the loose and not knowing whom she can trust, Cedar must race against time to reverse an ancient curse, in a journey that will take her from Tír na nÓg to Earth…and beyond.

Brimming with page-turning adventure, Among the Unseen—the exciting conclusion to Jodi McIsaac’s Thin Veil trilogy—weaves an enchanting, captivating spell.
My Thoughts...
I have really, really enjoyed this series and I am sad to see it come to an end.  I have just really enjoyed the world of  Tír na nÓg.  This book starts off pretty much right where the second one ends.  The story starts and we are introduced to the selkies and find out right away that they are sick and no one knows what's causing it.  As the story continues more and more of the Unseen are plagued with the same sickness.   Cedar is at home dealing with issues with the Druids, but feels called upon to figure out what is causing the problems for all the Unseen.

Meanwhile, Eden is dealing with issues of her own and secrets that she is keeping from her parents.  She is longing to come into her power and having what amounts to an alter ego inside her isn't helping.  The older Eden inside her is pushing her to come out and she is getting herself into a little bit of hot water.   I say all this because even though this trilogy is over I can't help but hope that we see more of Eden in the future.  Grown up Eden has the potential for a wonderful spin of series!

I don't want to say to much for fear of spoiling so I am not going to talk any more about the story!  This is the perfect ending for a wonderful trilogy.  The writing is fantastic, the characters are so well developed and the world itself is so very magical.  There are no pacing problems and the story just flows so well, there is just the right balance of action, romance, magic, etc...  Jodi really is a phenomenal writer and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next.

I can't recommend this series enough.  If you are a fan of fantasy then you need to pick this series up now and read it this summer.  I promise you won't be disappointed.

XOXO, Shelly
