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. It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle first arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy.

The Gemma Doyle Trilogy – Books – The Sweet Far Thing

You’ve successfully reported this review. Gemma’s character development was amazing and she is so strong. When Kartik died and in the end when Ann and Felicity got what they really wanted, I was very emotional. I was constantly waiting for her to see his red bandanna or meet him in the boathouse. After all, I have been sitting around lately asking for longer books.

As the story unfolds, Gemma discovers that nothing, and noone, is as they seem. And I’m not complaining. It felt like I was in a different world.

Ann tries her best to not fall into the social class of servitude, although she doesn’t have nearly quite as much spunk as Gemma and Felicity.

Over all, this is a fantastic series libb My old review for this sucked so I’ll attempt to sum up my thoughts in a slightly better way.


This series is so close to my heart.

I really wanted to like these books, but after the insertion on homosexuality hinted at in the first book, and is clear in the third book it felt like another way so many are trying to instill homsexualtiy tolerance. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I felt so depressed. My bones ache from her faar. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

And we do not want this to happen, right? Kartik, who deals with Gemma on behalf of the secret Rakshana organization, is moodier than before. First, Libba Bray has a I think I liked this one the best of the three in the trilogy.

I also feel like, both throughout the series and this book particularly, almost every single one of the characters went through sometime kind of development. For someone who has published 2 books already, the writing should have been much better. There are also some pretty dark moments in the book that I thought too heavy for teenagers.

I’ve read quite a few reviews and know how many people are disappointed with the ending. Sometimes, I forget where I am and lose track of time. Maybe I was reading too quickly to catch everything, but it was a bit confusing.

Seeing that this book is the last one, I expected to have a lot more resolution to the story of Gemma Doyle. The time is at hand for a treaty regulating the magic so no group can oppress the others, but Gemma isn’t ready to disperse the enchantment vested within her.

But alas, Bray chooses to ruin her own rather original series with this endless and bizarre last installment. Jan 15, Erin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Nobody can deny this.


I really wish for a fourth book “Kartik’s Return: I wanted the Gorgon to just let loose and throttle her! Gemma is in charge of all this magic and is supposed to be protecting it and making decisions regarding the realms and she and Felicity and Anne are going through a variety of issues at home, but they just play with the magic.

I really began to care about what happened to those worlds, instead of putting up with them to get to the Victorian stuff. The topic of the meeting was her brother Tom, whom the Rakshana was trying to enlist in the club.

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 fqr shiny armor.

There’s nothing finer than realizing that what you want is already yours. I cannot even describe my love for this trilogy. The whole thing felt more like a scene out of that obnoxious movie, What Dreams May Come, than anything else. God is in the details. The end to his story had far too much in common with Merlin’s fate for my taste.

And that made me wonder if any of them were lesbians. Spence’s burned East Wing is being rebuilt, but why now? The review must be at least 50 characters long. But overall I enjoyed the trilogy a lot!
