I love Libba Bray. I think my love for her grows more and more every time I read anything by her, or about her. This kind of story would not generally be my thing. Teenage girls in the old days, curtsying, being ladies, finishing school, high society, etc. Seriously, I am a very lucky girl not to have been born back in the day where women pretty much had a shit life. I would have been one of those girls that caused scandals by not wearing corsets, swearing, climbing trees, punching guys who pinched my ass, etc. I would have been the one they ship away off to the nutter house, or accused of witchcraft. It would have not been pleasant for me, so I usually don't want to read about how unpleasant it is for them, but Libba Bray makes me love it. She has magical powers, I am almost sure of it. She is a clever little bastard. ( )

Listened to the audio book of this, and just like the 1st book in the trilogy, this book was amazing and the narrator of the audio book was still amazing! In this book, our main character, Gemme Doyle, is home for the holidays with her family in London. She has to help care for her father, attend lavish balls, and have a bit of a whirlwind romance with a handsome Simon Denby. But Gemma's visions have come back and are much stronger. She is having visions of these 3 girls in white. They are trying to show her what happened to them and to warn her. Gemma, Felicity, and Ann return to the realms where Gemma must find the Temple and bind the magic and put a stop to Circe. ( )

Goodness. That's quite a story.

While [b:A Great and Terrible Beauty|3682|A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)|Libba Bray|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1284558475l/3682._SY75_.jpg|2113193] primarily focused around the boarding school life with hints of a relatively benign magic (with a fair few hints of darkness under the surface), Rebel Angels expands the world both to the greater society of the time and delves much deeper into the dark, creepy bits of the Realms--not the least of which is Pippa. Dead... but not? It's a way to deal with loss, but there's no way this is possible going to end well.

One one hand, the twists at the end are interesting and it does shine a light both at the darkness in our world and in theirs, which is all the better. The bits in England are interesting enough to me, but I imagine that it's pretty standard historical romance stuff. The bits in the Realms are... a bit of a kitchen sink. Nothing ever really makes sense, which can feel extra magical and fantastical, but in this case mostly makes it feel disjointed. And when the major conflict revolves around a trio of teen girls literally staying on the path and listening to what they're told...

Well, you can imagine how that goes.

We'll give the third a try just because I've made it this far, but it's certainly not the easiest read. ( )

Teen fiction. Period adventure for girls. Excellent narration of an enjoyable series (despite the stupid title). ( )

The adventures of Gemma, Ann, Felicity, and Pippa continue in the second installment of the Gemma Doyle trilogy. Is Miss Moore hiding something from them? ( )

All that we see or seem / Is but a dream within a dream. --Edgar Allan Poe
Who first seduc'd them to that foul revolt? Th' infernal Serpent; he it was, whose guile Stir'd up with Envy and Revenge, deceiv'd The Mother of Mankinde, what time his Pride Had cast him out from Heav'n, with all his Host of Rebel Angels, by whose aid aspiring To set himself in Glory above his Peers, He trusted to have equal'd the most High, If he oppos'd; and with ambitious aim Against the Throne and Monarchy of God Rais'd impious War in heav'n and Battel proud With vain attempt. Him the almighty Power Hurl'd headlong flaming from th' Ethereal Skie With hideous ruine and combustion down To bottomless perdition, there to dwell... O Prince, O Chief of many Throned Powers, That led th' imbattell'd Seraphim to Warr Under thy conduct, and in dreadful deeds Fearless, endanger'd Heav'n's perpetual King; And put to proof his high Supremacy, Whether upheld by strength, or Chance, or Fate, Too well I see and rue the dire event, That with sad overthrow and foul defeat Hath lost us Heav'n, and all this might Host In horrible destruction laid thus low, As far as Gods and Heav'nly Essences Can Perish: for the mind and spirit remains Invincible, and vigour soon returns, Though all our Glory extinct, and happy state Here swallow'd up in endless misery.... To reign is worth ambition though in Hell: Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heav'n. But wherefore let we then our faithful friends, Th' associates and copartners of our loss Lye thus astonisht on th' oblivious Pool, And call them not to share with us their part In this unhappy Mansion, or once more With rallied Arms to try what may be yet Regain'd in Heav'n, or what more lost in Hell? --John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book 1
