For millennia, Cassiel was a powerful Djinn – until she was exiled to live among mortals. Reluctant at first, she has grown affectionate toward her new human compatriots. But for one Warden in particular, she feels something much more powerful.
After Warden Luis Rocha and Cassiel rescue an adept child from a maniacal Djinn, they soon realize two things: the girl is already manifesting an incredible amount of power and her kidnapping ws not an isolated incident.
All over the world, young Wardens are showing their potential far too early. And this Djinn – aided by her devoted followers – is snatching the children seemingly at will and indoctrinating them so she can use their strength for herself.
With no other options, Cassiel infiltrates the Djinn's organization. Deprived of the ethereal gifts allowed her by the Wardens, she soon begins to question her own ideas of right, wrong, and true power. But if Cassiel cannot stop the Djinn's apocalyptic designs, all of humanity may be destroyed – including Luis.

THE OUTCAST SERIES NOVELS
Caine's third Outcast Season novel (after Unknown) finds the djinn Cassiel well adapted to the mortal body she's been exiled to. The same cannot be said for Ibby, the six-year-old girl whose awesome paranormal powers literally start the book off with a bang. Newly turned over to a school where the benevolent Wardens teach gifted children to harness their supernatural endowments, Ibby, whose talents were boosted prematurely by evil Djinn Pearl, is going through life-threatening physical withdrawal from the Djinn. Hoping to save Ibby, Cassiel takes to the road to infiltrate and neutralize Pearl's organization a gambit fraught with danger for her human form. Periodic dustups with FBI agents, passionate moments with Warden love interest Luis Rocha, and a surprising twist of events at Ibby's school combine with Cassiel's insightful reflections on mortality and human nature to keep this fascinating fantasy saga moving briskly forward to its apocalypse-promising next installment.

Great reading, terrible ending!!!
I really enjoyed all three books but the ending to unseen is so disappointing! It's like she just gave up and couldn't be bothered to come up with a creative way to solve the story! The only way to redeem this ending would be to write a 4th book.
