    Here's what I expected from this book that it would maintain the part snarky part serious part romantic tone of the first two books; that the characters would grow a bit and the relationships would be as fraught as ever; that there would be some good old fashioned suspense leading up to the conclusion of the trilogy If any of those elements were present in this book they got lost under pages and pages of sub par writing

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 Sweet PDF the re. 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

About the Author: Libba Bray

What is it about writing an author bio that gives me that deer in headlights feeling It's not exactly like I'm going to say I was born in Alabama and somebody's going to jump up and snarl Oh yeah Prove it At least The Sweet PDF \ I hope notI think what gets me feeling itchy is all that emphasis on the facts of a life while all the juicy relevant human oddity stuff gets left on the cutting room floor.
