Publisher's Summary

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.

Absoulute Perfection!!!

The Gemma Doyle Triology is a Great and Wonderful Series. It is one of the best book for not only teens, but adults too. The narration and the story is great, one of those unpredictable kind that would make you sit on the edge of your chair. Unless you wish to read the "happily ever after" kind of story, The Sweet Far Thing is the best of the whole series. Loved it!

The story is too far of a thing for me

I just could not wrap my head and mind around the story. It never grew, it just went on, but no good explanations as to why and where or how? Well, I might not be smart enough to get it, but it was overall a repetitious imaginary land of witches, witchcraft, fantastical beings, or maybe hobbits that went the wrong way looking for "precious". Well, it wasn't that great.
