Format: Paperback
REBEL ANGELS is the second book in the Gemma Doyle trilogy and goes to prove that A GREAT AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY, the first in the series, was not a one-trick pony. The sentence on the front of the cover, "A gripping sequel of passion and peril", does not do the novel justice.

The book's main character, Gemma Doyle is a young girl who is a student at Spence Academy for Girls. Gemma suffers from visions and she is the one who is able to go from this world into another known as the Realms where magic runs free. The Realms can be heavenly - your every wish can be granted, but because Gemma does not know all that there is to the Relams and the magic it contains, how safe it is is another matter. As heaven can quickly turn to Hell.
In this installment, Gemma and her friends are looking forward to Christmas; to the balls and social events. But since their last battle in the Realms, the magic is now loose rather than being stable. And Gemma's visions are becomeing more intense. Three girls in white are haunting her, trying to warn her of something.
In order to maintain stability, Gemma has to return to the Realms to bind the magic once more. But who, if anyone can she trust, and just what are the dangers Gemma faces?

That is a very basic plot. This book - as with the first in the series - has a lot going for it. Bray takes on a variety of issues; drug abuse, child abuse, self harm, friendship, loyalty and betrayal to name but a few. And this is what I love about the books. Although they have the touches of magic and romance, at the root of them they also have a stark honesty to them which is relevant at any time in history.

...the only reason it doesn't get 4 is because other books that I've reviewed on here and given 4 are better. Fairs fair.

Okay, this book, along with 'A Great and Terrible Beauty' are good, pretty gripping books (to a certain extent), and i'll certainly want to read the third one. However, I only bought this book because I was out of my mind with boredom and I couldn't find anything else that I fancied. Also, I found that I could quite willing leave the book for a break to go and watch TV or something. Coming from me, a girl who lets nothing (including uni work) get in the way of finishing a good novel, I think that speaks volumes!

The lead character is a girl who has a modern personality in a novel set in the 18th century, or around that time anyway, and everytime she has a bit of modern rebelion I think it jarrs a bit with her setting. I'm all for a fiesty heroine who wants to escape the bonds placed on her by society, but make it a bit more believable please...

Her 'friends' consist of a girl who bullied her in the first novel, and continues to show flashes of that cruel streak throughout both the novels, making me wonder why Gemma was friends with such a back-stabbing, malicious and spiteful little girl in the first place! This really bugs me. It makes for good reading, granted, but to me it doesn't quite ring true...Gemma is not meek enough to be following the crowd or sucking up to this girl because she's scared of her, so why does she stand for it??
However, that said, a secret is revealed in this novel about Felicity which goes some way to explaining why she pushes away and aims to hurt those closest to her.

As others have said, this book is slightly different from the 1st and 3rd.
I think this ones explores the characters much more than the first book, its the middle of the story where everythings not going quite as it should and Gemma is trying to figure out her next move.
You get to know the other characters alot more and also Gemma's relationship with them.
The tone is a bit darker i feel, but this book is equally as good as the rest of the series.
There always has to be the first intial read that draws you in at the start, the more detailed middle for the characters to build up to the massive finish, thats how i see it.
You need to get to know the characters to understand their battle and the personal problems they all have that make them who they are.
Again great detail, you feel like you've gone back in time, there's the electric relationship between Katrik and Gemmma, you're just glued to the book to see what happens between them!
Again a long book, but i loved that about it, leaves you satisfied and wanting to read the third book.

Format: Paperback
My friend lent me 'A Great and Terrible Beauty' and 'Rebel Angels'. She confirmed to me that the books were incredibly good so I was very keen to read them. Both books left me speechless.

The Second book was slightly different to the first, it focused on the relationships Gemma had with different characters from the book. The realms seemed to be lacking the positive atmosphere they had in the first book and the author highlighted possible rivalries for future books. Gemma experiences confusion throughout the novel, which sometimes leads her astray. The twists in this book makes the book extremely mysterious, secrets start to unfold as they did in the first book.

Set in the late 1800s the author uses this time to capture the old fashioned lifestyle that Gemma had until she became aware of her powers, the author uses a range of descriptive, historical information to create an image in the reader's mind.
