First, a very minor spoiler about that "back of the book" text....
Angel looks at the wood chip once or twice, but doesn't use it. Yup, no major role in the book...
Seeking Unseen is a little faster paced than Finding Angel, which isn't a bad thing, and it still has a whimsical feel to it.
Angel is about the same here character wise as she is in Finding Angel, only now it's here turn to play old hat at showing the newbie around the magic island. Also, she gets a love interest in this book, which was nice, as the author writes the character interactions almost the same as she did with Angel and Gregor in the first book, which is nice, as that's one of the things that Finding Angel was missing, a nice, sweet romance.
Then there's Melinda. I'd almost forgotten here from the first book. She's back now, and I spent the first half of the book not being able to stand her. As the character changes throughout the book, she becomes more relate-able, and by the end we the readers are able to see the tiny seed of good in Melinda that Angel saw from the beginning.
The story was fun and enjoyable, and it's always nice to spend time with old friends. Four stars, easy.
Seeking Unseen is like your second trip to Disneyland. The first time your eyes are filled with the big picture. You're pinching yourself because you're at Disneyland! That's the way I entered Toch Island the first time in Finding Angel. In subsequent visits, you marvel at the attention to detail.
That's Seeking Unseen. You've been blown away by the description of the island so tabby-striped cagons and housework that does itself seem as ordinary as a home with a labradoodle and a dishwasher.
Angel was unsettled until she discovered Toch Island was her true home. Toch Island is her paradise. Skeptical Melinda is a perfect complement. While Angel took in the magical world with wide-eyed wonder and girlish eagerness, Melinda experiences Toch Island with a raised eyebrow and a smirk.
Kalek, the tattooed rocker Elf is back. A minor character in Finding Angel, his personality shines in Seeking Unseen, especially when he and Melinda engage in witty exchanges.
Ayden is a new character, the literal boy next door to Angel. What I loved about them together is the sweet and innocent romance borne of friendship.
Like Finding Angel, the Christian content is an Easter egg. It's there if you know where to look and WOW it's there! Understanding the story world, "true magic" (faith in the True God) versus "false magic" (false religion) is laid out in a great way. Very subtle and very deep. Toward the end of the book, there's a simple conversation between Kalek and Melinda that really moved me.
This is what I love about Kat's writing, she reminds me of C.S. Lewis. She puts God's fingerprints all over a world that doesn't mention Him.
Fantasy is not my preferred genre, but I'm growing in my appreciation of it, in large part because of Kat's writing and love of fairies, elvens and dragons.
Kat's writing matured noticeably from Finding Angel to Seeking Unseen. Finding Angel was superb, but Seeking Unseen is even better. Can't wait for book #3!
