Product Description

Product Description

It’s been seven years since the love of Cedar McLeod’s life left with no forwarding address. All she has left of him are heart-wrenching memories of happier times and a beautiful six-year-old daughter, Eden. Then, one day, Eden opens her bedroom door and unwittingly creates a portal that leads to anywhere she imagines.

But they’re not the only ones who know of Eden’s gift, and soon the child mysteriously vanishes.

Desperate for answers, Cedar digs into the past and finds herself thrust into a magical world of Celtic myths, fantastical creatures, and bloody rivalries. Teaming up with the unlikeliest of allies, Cedar must bridge the gap between two worlds and hold tight to the love in her heart…or lose everything to an ancient evil.

The first in the Thin Veil series, Through the Door is a pulse-pounding adventure that takes readers across the globe and deep into the hidden realms of Celtic lore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Heritage 20 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

Cedar is a young woman who feels lost and out of place. Before she could tell Finn she was pregnant with their child Eden he dissappeared leaving no trace. Effectively facing life as a single mother she puts aside her dreams and moves back to her home town and takes a steady job. She raises her daughter with the help of her mother Maeve. Even though she feels dead and listless Cedar shows Eden love and does everything she can to provide a normal childhood for her. Everything is as good as it can be until the fateful night Eden starts questioning Cedar about her father... And the world as she knows it is over. Guess she should have listened to Finn when he told her magic was real!

This story was full of mysteries and adventure. A whole new magical reality opens up in a very nontraditional way. The characters were for the most part magical and endearing (most of the time) though you could clearly see how it clashed with their sense of superiority to deal with Cedar and her steadfast refusal to be left behind! The suspense was awesome and you never really knew who to trust but I think that is what will make this series great :) I can't wait to read the next book Into the Fire (The Thin Veil, Book 2)!

***This series is suitable for young adult through adult readers

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't put it down 4 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't put it down, and that has to be the best criteria for judging a novel. At its heart this is a book about a mother's search for her lost daughter, and we truly feel for her plight. Both mother and daughter come alive in the pages and their unique brands of heroism are perfectly judged. This is a first novel, and it does show in places; the supporting cast could have done with a little more character, and I found the scene with the cat had me losing sympathy with the grandmother so that, when she became important, I cared less than maybe I should have. But these are minor points that failed to detract from a thoroughly good read, and I will certainly be watching out for a sequel or anything else that Mrs McIsaac publishes in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling and very easy to read. 28 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really enjoyed this read; I enjoyed the fact that the author did not overcrowd the narrative with too many characters at the outset. When the story begins it is mainly surrounding just three people; the woman, the mother and the child. This is always a great start to any book, as it gives the reader chance to get familiar with the main characters first, before introducing myriads of others. Too many writers fail on this point I find, and at a crucial stage when readers are often deciding whether to go on or to give up... When writers do this, I think for the most part it's often to come across as `accomplished' in some way, or to prove something - it isn't necessary, and there are no worries here! I love the way this story and list of characters grows gradually over a period of time.

A young woman left alone to bring up her only child after a mysterious split from her one time lover, has a pretty mundane life - until that is, her small daughter `Eden' opens her bedroom door one day to find something very strange the other side!

A very enthralling book this, and will have you dying to know where this `gateway' will lead; both for the characters and the story. It's all very easy to follow and not over-complicated like so many novels in this particular genre. I found this book very `different' on so many levels - including the simple, yet attractive cover artwork. There's a very satisfying ending, and I found the graveside scene in the final chapter to be very moving that wound things up beautifully.

Five stars from me!

NOTE: You should take a look at the FABULOUS video trailer for this book at Jodi's site - every bit as enthralling as the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Thin Veil Parts 11 Aug 2014
By Leiah
Format:Kindle Edition
In Flanders fields the poppies grow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
~John McCrae

What connects two thousand years of genocide? Too much power in too few hands. - Simon Wiesenthal

...the Tuatha De Danann or Sidhe, the 'Gentry', the 'Good People', and the 'People of Peace' are described as a race of invisible divine beings eternally young and unfading. They inhabit fairy palaces, enjoy rare feasts and love-making, and have their own music and minstrelsy. They are essentially majestic in their nature...Mythologically they are gods of light and good, able to control natural phenomena so as to make harvests come forth abundantly or not at all. — W. Y. Evans-Wentz; The Faerie Faith in Celtic Countries, 1911 (quoted by Michael Tsarion)

Millennia. Millennia beyond counting, the Tuatha De Danann graced the lands of Tír na nÓg. Tír na nÓg, where fields of flowers . . . caress those who walked past, waterfalls of crystal nectar, trees that sang and danced and hung heavy with fruit. . . And yet, though they despise the humans that drove them from Ériu and back to the lands of Tuatha De Danann, the lands of plenty and peace.


And yet, even the Tuatha De Danann are not immune to war. And war there is, a war of hatred and greed, a war led by a psychopath. For sometimes, living forever is dangerous in the extreme. Long years of thought, of jealousy and avarice, and bitter blackness of the heart. Those who are undying can be killed – and the slaughter is beyond comprehension.
