Review: Rebel Angels by Libba Bray
I was not that fond of A Great and Terrible Beauty, but it did have that otherworldly aspect that I liked. Since I was in a reading slump and have sworn off vampires for a month AND nothing seemed to peak my interest I decided that I would give the Gemma Doyle trilogy another go.
Rebel Angels was okay. I liked that it explained much of what was missing from the first, why Gemma is the most high, who the other members of the order are, more details of the Rakshana and more description of the realm itself. I like the gorgon, Kartik and think Simon was a very respectable suitor for Gemma. I like the struggle between good and bad, those with power and those with out, and the whole destiny versus choice argument. BUT, it just is not my cup of tea. Go figure.
Will I read the last book in the trilogy, The Sweet Far Thing? Yes, but I am not sure when. I really would like to see what becomes of Pippa, Ann and Felicity and the relationship between Gemma and Kartick.
I give Rebel Angels 3.5 STACKS.
See you in the STACKS, Stacy
