The Sweet Far Thing

The Sweet Far Thing
Libba Bray
4 Stars

This is the third and final book in the A Great and Terrible Beauty series. I have really enjoyed this magical series. Gemma, the main character, is preparing to finish her years at Spence and have her debut. She also faces many decisions about the magic that she holds and the relms. She isn't sure who to trust, there is suspense throughout the whole novel.
While I did enjoy this book, I think that the second book in the series, Rebel Angels was my favorite. Without writing a spoiler, this book had a twist at the end with two of the character that I did not see coming, maybe it was just me because everyone else I know that has read it saw it coming. I was sad but happy with the ending. I couldn't have seen it really end in any other way. I think Libba Bray is a pretty talented writer and I did overall think that the series was a good pick!

I am excited to read this one! I read the others too, the first I liked okay, but really liked the second. I"m hoping the WDM library will have this one when I get back so I can read it!
