This review is from: Rebel Angels (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.
