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 to turn catty schoolgirls into loyal friends, and has discovered an ability to travel to an enchanted world called the realms, where dark magic runs wild.

Despite certain peril, Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances with headstrong Felicity and timid Ann; with Kartik, an exotic young Indian man whose companionship is forbidden; and with the fearsome creatures of the realms. Now, as Gemma approaches her London debut, the time has come to test these bonds. The Order, the mysterious group Gemma's mother was once part of, is grappling for control of the realms, as are the Rakshana. It is there that the girls meet their adored friend Pippa, who is not the same...or is she? The power to change everything - both in and out of the realms - rests in Gemma's hands.

Libba Bray's The Sweet Far Thing concludes the trilogy that began with the bestsellers A Great and Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Michele | 2/13/2014

    " I enjoyed this book but not as much as the first two. I felt that it was unnecessarily long and that the author dragged it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jia Jia | 2/10/2014

    " Sadly... the last 150 pages is the only reason why this book receives a three. D; "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Karen | 2/4/2014

    " This was my favorite book of the series, a great example of genre blending; paranormal, romance and historical fiction. Libba Bray took twice as many pages as the first two novels to finish the story. I like when an author doesn't feel bound by convention and takes the time to let the story unfold and resolve. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Liesl Biddell | 1/10/2014

    " I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this series and being able to read them back to back was great. No waiting for the next book to come out. I discovered them all on the shelf in the book department and took the chance that I would like them all and bought all three. I am so glad I did. Great read!!! "
