An excellent read, for teens and adults, one of my favorite book series!

In this book, our three baby witches are faced with more issues. Kate is still dealing with her parents’ refusal to allow her to study Wicca. They think it’s a load of crap and she is just being sucked in by her friends. They keep making her see a therapist, which actually helps her as the therapist convinces her parents to go to one of the rituals in order to see why they mean something to her. In discussing it with Sophia, they decide to come to the Samhain ritual. Annie decides to go back to San Francisco and see her old house to face her parents’ death, while being haunted by the voices of her parents. She’s afraid they blame her for their deaths since she was the one who fell asleep with the Christmas tree on and that started the fire. With Samhain coming, the veil between the worlds is thinner. Cooper meanwhile starts writing more and more witchy songs. Her band, Schrodinger’s Cat, doesn’t particularly want to do them and she decides to go solo. For a bit things seem like they may be rocky for her and T.J. because of it, but then she finds Jane, a girl who’s songs also speak of the Goddess and reaches out. And her parents are separating which adds a weird dynamic to her normally tempestuous relationship with her mother and generally friendly one with her dad. Will Kate’s parents ever allow her to study Wicca, or will she have to wait until she moves out? Are Annie’s parents angry with her? Or just trying to talk to her? What is Cooper going to do without her band? Will her parents get back together or are they going to get divorced? Will she and her mother kill each other before anything is settled, since they have such trouble getting along?

"Through the Veil" is the ninth book in the "Circle of Three" series, which chronicles three teenagers' journey through a year-and-a-day of discovering and exploring Wicca. If you haven't yet come across these books, I suggest you stop reading now and head back to book number one "So Mote It Be", as the books are very closely tied together and it's near impossible to read them out of chronological order (which is annoying, but there you go).

The three girls are Kate, Cooper and Annie (the ex-popularity queen, the rebel and the nerd are their individual personalities in a nutshell) and in "Through the Veil" they are fast approaching Halloween - Samhain in the Wicca calendar. Samhain marks the thinning of the veils between the living and the dead, which is especially relevant for Annie considering her parents passed away when she was young.

This title deals mainly with Annie - she is approaching her sixteenth birthday, and has asked her aunt if she can take a visit to San Francisco for her present. She lived there with her parents before they were killed in a house fire that she accidently started. Now she's been having disturbing nightmares about them and seeks out a way to communicate with them. As such, a few Wiccan rituals are thrown in - a meeting with a physic, a circle taken place at Annie's old home, and the coven's Samhain celebration itself which involves some symbollic "role-playing" along the same lines as the events that took place in "What the Cards Said" and "In the Dreaming". Not that that's a bad thing - these gatherings are pretty much the only reason I keep reading these books.

Meanwhile Kate and Cooper are dealing with their own (less critical) problems. Kate's parents are vehemently against her involvement in witchcraft and react by sending her to a therapist, confiscating her Wiccan tools and forbidding her from seeing her boyfriend or from attending her Wiccan class. Cooper on the other hand has quit her band due to the fact they aren't interested in playing her Wiccan-themed songs (fair enough, I say - she doesn't half over-react!) and just found out that her parents are separating.

As you can see, the plot is all over the place and often comes across as messy with the constant switching points of view - if would have felt more focused if Isobel Bird had chosen one girl and developed her personal story more fully (Annie's is certainly the most important, but Kate and Cooper get just as much screen-time). On top of the three stories outlined above, Bird also crams in a love interest for Annie's aunt, a physic that communicates with Annie's parents, and a truly bizarre transsexual witch - I'm sorry, but I couldn't quite see the point of that particular character.

"Through the Veil" is one of the more interesting installments, despite the lack of a clear storyline and the hopelessly cheesy ending. "The Circle of Three" books are hardly high literature, but for me they're quick, mildly entertaining reads. The three girls are sympathetic enough to justify getting hold of other books in the series, but be quick - they're already out of print.

With another great turning of the Wheel of the Year, Cooper, Kate and Annie continue to grow and change like the year itself. Cooper makes an important decision regarding the direction her music is taking her and new connections are made. She also is forced to deal with the unhappiness and uncertainty of her parents separation.
Kate continues to deal with the fallout from telling her parents she's studying Wicca. This story finds her under virtual house arrest with no privacy, her belongings are searched, magical tools get taken away, emails and phone calls are monitored and she's unable to attend Wicca class, see or talk to her Wiccan boyfriend Tyler, or see her friends outside of school. On top of all of that, she's forced to see a psychiatrist too...could things get any worse?! Thankfully, the mood is about to change.
But the focus of the story is on Annie. The wheel has now turned to the season of Samhain, the Witches New Year, when the veil separating the realm of the living and the realm of the dead is very thin. Annie is frightened and haunted by recurring dreams of her parents and the fire she accidentally started. She begins to hear their voices calling to her. She realizes that she must begin to deal with the guilt she's been harboring all these years concerning her parents untimely death. She starts by asking her aunt for a birthday gift to help her on her way to healing.
Bird continues to enchant with three down-to-earth teen characters, practicing the Craft of Wicca, much like it is practiced today. The story has a somewhat syrupy ending, but it does remind those who practice Wicca, of some of the emotional, profound or life-changing experiences that they themselves may have experienced on the Wiccan path.
Bird has really developed these characters well and this book brings readers closer to them than ever. All of this and a wonderful, beautifully constructed Samhain ritual too. Fans will enjoy this latest installment in the series. Others interested in the magical adventure that life can be are strongly encouraged to read the wonderful books in the Circle of Three Series.
