(Feb 23, 2010) From the back cover of the book:
[i]It has been[/i] 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 her and forged unlikely new alliances with headstrong Felicity and timid Ann; with the fearsome creatures of the realms. Now, as Gemma approaches her London debut, the time has come to test these bonds...
Extraordinary in its scope, Libba Bray's [i]The Sweet Far Thing[/i] concludes the [i]New York Times[/i]bestselling trilogy that began with [i]A Great and Terrible Beauty[/i] and continued in [i]Rebel Angels[/i]. Pulled forward by fate, the destiny Gemma faces threatens to set chaos loose, not only in the realms, but also upon the rigid Victorian society whose rules Gemma both defied and followed. Where does Gemma belong? And will she, can she, survive?
