The Sweet Far Thing

It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy Her mother murdered her father a laudanum addict Gemma has relied on an unsuspected strength and has discovered an ability to travel to an enchanted world called the realms wher. And so ends the trilogy that began with A Great and Terrible Beauty continued with Rebel Angels and concludes in this final volume I liked the first one well enough because of its uniue blend of a wild magical mythical realm barely constrained behind stiff Victorian curtains I really got into the second one as the plot became complex Gemma came into her own powers Felicity and Ann s stories became layered and poor beautiful Pippa was relegated to the Realms indefinitely When I saw how thick the third one was my eagerness ratcheted up a notch After all I have been sitting around lately asking for longer books Suddenly here one isUnfortunately 800 pages later the best thing about it remains the first four words it s lovely title taken from a poem by WB Yeats And it does capture the extremely bittersweet feel of the last portion of the book But somehow this installment failed to capture my imagination It frustrated me than anything Instead of making good use of everything she fought for in Rebel Angels Gemma spends the entire novel trying to decide whether or not to do what she decided to do at the end of the last book Not until the final pages does she get a grip on herself and do what needs to be done I thought we were done with crippling indecision in the previous books I wanted the Gorgon to just let loose and throttle her Meanwhile Felicity and Ann are apparently thirteen again and spend the majority of their time being petty and distrustful backstabbing Gemma whenever they get the chance Pippa is the most interesting of the original friends munching on the berries of the dead in all her Miss Havisham glory But her path is extremely predictable And Kartik Fiery beautiful Kartik Sigh The end to his story had far too much in common with Merlin s fate for my taste I will say that the scene where Gemma and Kartik place their hands inside the stone was achingly beautiful But as with much in this hefty book it was too little too late and I m left feeling sad Wishing somehow it could all have gone differently

E dark magic runs wild Despite certain peril Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances Now as Gemma approaches her London debut the time has come to test these bonds The Order the mysterious group her mother was once part of is grapplin. This was by far my favorite in the series and I think a lot of it had to do with what Libba Bray was willing to have happen to her characters The others have had their dark moments but this was definitely the darkest of the lot Makes sense since it is the conclusion of a trilogy and so there s got to be pretty big events to keep the story goingIt does take a while for the story to pick up like in the others Oh and there s a veritable ton of Victorian society happenings that some readers might get a little tired of Gemma also spends a lot of time debating about the decision of what to do with the magic which might also bore a lot of readers I actually really loved how much effort Bray put into fleshing out the Victorian culture for her readers and didn t mind Gemma s brooding Hey if I were in her position I d totally be brooding tooSo while the first half of the book is good but not great the second half completely makes up for it This book is packed full of action and intrigue than the first two and some really excellent twistsI just loved how she tied all the characters individual stories up Mrs Nightwing and Mrs McCleethy both get a lot interesting in this one and even Fowlson finally gets some believable characterization rather than coming off as a 1 dimensional jerk And Pippa I wasn t sure what would happen with her but I have to say I loved it For the romantics there are some really beautiful scenes between Gemma and Kartik I was really glad she resolved things between the two and at least gave them some really great interactions I can t say much without spoiling it thoughThe ending was definitely not a perfect happy conclusion but it felt fitting for the series Some readers are actually probably going to be uite disappointed by how some of it ties up just with how gruesome it could get Personally I found the conclusion beautiful and touching and it really made the series better as a whole than if she had done a cookie cutter look it s a happy ending for us The whole series is bittersweet and I love it all the for that very reason
