Publisher Description

The gripping conclusion to the critically acclaimed New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling Gemma Doyle trilogy, an exhilarating and haunting saga from the author of The Diviners series and Going Bovine.

It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy. Her mother murdered, her father alaudanum addict, Gemma has relied on an unsuspected strength 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. 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 grappling 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 for.

Greatest book

This trilogy is wonderfully written and totally unique. This is the last book in the trilogy. If you are into history, fantasy, mystery, romance, horror, drama, and a little comedy on the side, you will love this book. The Sweet Far Thing is definately one of those books you cannot put down. 832 pages of greatness.

I heart me ,

powerful ending

I sobbed for about 4 hours after finishing this book, so I reccomend that you don't read/listen to it in a public place, as people will look at you strangly. This series is my favorite, and I wish that I could jump into the world Libba Bray created. This final book ends the series with a flourish.

My Favorite Book Series Ever

I love every part of this series. I cried at the end of The Sweet Far Thing for hours. I loved Kartik so much. I could barly bear it. It most definatly broke my heart in half.
