E dark magic runs wild Despite certain peril Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances Now as Gemma approaches her London debut the time has come to test these bonds The Order the mysterious group her mother was once part of is grapplin Thankfully this is over I thought I would never get through this last installment of Gemma Doyle trilogy Why oh why does this book have to be so long Take out 300 400 pages of unnecessary secondary characters and going nowhere plot lines its 5 epilogues and The Sweet Far Thing would be a reasonably decent book I suppose But alas Bray chooses to ruin her own rather original series with this endless and bizarre last installmentI ve read uite a few reviews and know how many people are disappointed with the ending I don t really mind where all the characters end up in this story but I rather mind how and why they get there Gemma s books have never been about romance for me The underlying idea of these books is women s independence I get it So I probably wouldn t have minded Kartik s sacrifice if it made any sense For me he dies because of Gemma s stupidity Should she have done what she promised to do in the end of book 2 divide the magic among the inhabitants of the realms none of the events in the books would have happened Thus his death is pointless in my opinion In fact the I think of the details of Kartik s death the less I understand what and why exactly happened to him Basically Gemma stabs the Tree releasing Winterlands magic Kartik sucks in this magic then pours the magic into Gemma and then becomes a part of the Tree WTH just happened Why does he even have to do it If the Tree doesn t have any magic how can it have this power to accept his sacrifice and why is it needed If the Tree still holds on its evil power how does Kartik s sacrifice change anything Doesn t it mean that the Tree will continue its evil business in the Winterlands and will eventually corrupt Kartik the same way it did Eugenia How is this a solutionNow to Felicity and Pippa Seriously where does the gay issue come from I have no objections to homosexuality being portrayed in YA literature but it is handled very heavy handedly by Bray in this book First of all there is no clue about this in the first two books Felicity is caught kissing a gypsy man Pippa dreams of a knight in shiny armor This leads me to believe that this turn in the girls relationship is an afterthought on Bray s part Another issue here is that considering that Felicity is only 16 and a victim of sexual abuse can we really be sure that her newly found sexual preference is a real one and not caused by the abuse I just think Bray shouldn t have brought up this issue if she didn t have time to handle it responsibly and thoughtfullyLastly The Sweet Far Thing is an unbearably long and convoluted tale that needs editing badly First two books have a great balance of real and supernatural with a great women s independence message This third book is unnecessarily full of numerous subplots redundant scenes and pages of feminist propaganda I understand Bray wanted to give us her opinion on about every women s issue out there but it doesn t translate into a good bookOverall a disappointing conclusion to an imaginative and original series I don t necessarily regret reading the trilogy but I will definitely not recommend it to

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 realms wher 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

G for control of the realms as is the Rakshana Spence's burned East Wing is being rebuilt but why now Gemma and her friends see Pippa but she is not the same And their friendship faces its gravest trial as Gemma must decide once and for all what role she is meant f Sweet Far Thing by Libba Braycontains spoilersI finished the final installment of the Gemma Doyle trilogy last night It took me over two weeks to finish and I came very close to throwing the damn book across the room with only 70 pages to go I have to say that I am very upset that Kartik died VERY The tension and affection between Kartik and Gemma was what kept me reading I was constantly waiting for her to see his red bandanna or meet him in the boathouse I will admit that the book ended very well but I was still very angryI have never cried while reading before and I have told my friends that I don t understand why people do I cry in all movies but with a book you control the tempo You can stop whenever you please Simply close the book and try again later that is how I roll However I shed a few tears at the end of Sweet Far Thing When Kartik died and in the end when Ann and Felicity got what they really wanted I was very emotional I am so very glad Libba decided to make both of their characters good in the end Ann irritated me so much in the first two books but really held her own in this one especially towards the end when she had to stand up to Pippa I felt like she was always ready to abandon Gemma for the others but in the end that proved false Felicity could have gone either way right up to the very end because of her love for Pippa but I was happy to see that she got her inheritance and intends to live as she has always wanted free and daring and out from under th hold of her father I also appreciated how she wrote Circe s character At work I always tell people that this trilogy is a mix between Harry Potter and the Twilight series and Circe was Snapelike in my opinionI am sad that these books are over I look forward to reading whatever Libba Bray writes next but can t imagine a character being a strong confused and brave as Gemma Love her Definitely one of my favorite characters of all time I think it is important to remember that a young woman can be powerful and challenge authority but still long for love and romanceFinal Rating 455I think this book could have easily been written into two installments Not only because it was 800 pages but because SO much happened I can t really remember what happened at the beginning of the book

    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

    Sweet Far Thing by Libba Braycontains spoilersI finished the final installment of the Gemma Doyle trilogy last night It took me over two weeks to finish and I came very close to throwing the damn book across the room with only 70 pages to go I have to say that I am very upset that Kartik died VERY The tension and affection between Kartik and Gemma was what kept me reading I was constantly waiting for her to see

    Okay I'm going to start off with a warning I will be talking in detail about how this book made me feel and if you haven't read it yet it is possible that my feelings will give away a crucial plot point With that all I can say is I feel raw Absolutely raw I couldn't breathe And I cried A lot of tears were shed The ending is by far one of the most brilliant brave things I have EVER read that does not mean that it wasn'
