The Library - Book Spotlight & GIVEAWAY "Through the Door" by Jodi McIsaac

I originally reviewed this book back in July of 2012.  At that time it was a self-published, first release by Jodi McIsaac.  Well, it's being re-released in Paperback by 47North Publishing so I wanted to do a spotlight post on it!

Through the Door synopsis:
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.
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.

If you would like to read my original review you can do so here.  Here is just a little snippet of it for you.
I was pulled into the story immediately and I couldn't put it down.  It didn't take me long to finish this book and I will be anxiously waiting for the next book in the trilogy to come out.  I am a sucker for any kind of story with Celtic lore in it.  I always have been drawn to it ever since I started reading Nora Roberts Celtic Trilogies over 10 years ago.  The world that Jodi has started to build in the series is a fresh new take, at least for me.  She does such a wonderful job with her descriptions that you are pulled right into the story along with Cedar.

I would be hard-pressed to tell you which character is my favorite.  I think that I would have to say Eden, she really steals the story.  She is such a sweet girl and I can't wait to see how she grows as the trilogy continues.  I don't really think of this as a love story, there are elements of a love story in it, but it's more centered on the "fae" aspect.  They aren't called fae in the series, that's just how I tend to classify them since it's easier to say that Tuatha De Dannan!  
I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in this series.  If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it if you like Celtic Lore, stories of the Fae, etc...
