A Great and Not Terrible Trilogy

The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, #3) The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was by far my favorite of the 3 Gemma Doyle books, and an excellent audiobook.

I feel like Libba Bray's writing improved throughout the series, and the characters grew as time progressed. Gemma deals with more adult topics as she is nearing the end of her time in school, and the sub plots get darker and more complex as well.

Gone is the little girl who made butterflies out of leaves in the Realms, and in her place is a character who is nearly a grownup, very real and complex and at the same time - still her charming self.

If you've read ANY of the Gemma series, it's worth it to pick this one up and finish the story.
