In this sequel to the Victorian fantasy A Great and Rebel Angels (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy Book 2) by [Bray, Libba]. Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle, #2) Books by Libba Bray. Ah, Christmas! Gemma Doyle is looking forward to a holiday from Spence Academy, spending time with.
Gemma's brother Tom is late to pick her up at the train station. Gemma believes a member of the Rakshana is following her. She runs up to a young man and pretends she knows him, under the pretense that the other man following her will go away. The young man turns out to be Simon Middleton, a young aristocrat who is immediately smitten with her. Middleton invites her and her family to dinner, and he begins to court Gemma. Gemma finds out that her brother attended Eton with Simon.
Gemma runs into Miss Hester Asa Moore, her former art teacher who mentored her at Spence, and who has now taken a flat in London. At Bethlem Royal Hospital i. Gemma visits her, and through Nell's ramblings, she begins putting together clues as to the location of the Temple.
She also discovers that Nell was a student at a finishing school that Miss McCleethy had taught at before coming to Spence, as well as three other girls whose terrible fate Gemma repeatedly envisions. Together with Ann and Felicity, they meet up with their deceased friend Pippa, who has remained in the realms, and they try to locate the Temple.
That doesn't tell you that I stuck a bead up my nose while watching TV when I was four and thought I'd have to go to the ER and have it cut out. Or that I made everyone call me "Bert" in ninth grade for no reason that I can think of.
See what I mean? God is in the details. So with that in mind, here is my bio. Sort of. I ended up using the punchbowl box as an end table for two years. My dad was a Presbyterian minister.
Yes, I am one of those dreaded P. Be afraid. Be very afraid. The first story I ever wrote, in Mrs. McBee's 6th grade English class, was about a girl whose family is kidnapped and held hostage by a murderous lot of bank robbers who intend to kill the whole family—including the dog—until the year-old heroine foils the plot and saves the day.
It included colored pencil illustrations of manly-looking, bearded criminals smoking, and, oblivious to the fact that The Beatles had already sort of laid claim to the title, I called my novel, HELP. It gave a fresh and exciting environment. Why I didn't give it 5 stars: I just felt that I got a little bored in the beginning-middle. I can't quite say what it was, but I was not enthralled with it.
I loved certain aspects but as a whole, I just was not thoroughly into it. The huge plot twist really threw me back into the story and the ending was fantastic! Aug 30, Summer rated it it was amazing.
I have to get The Sweet Far Thing. I don't know what to do. My brain isn't working. So far I love this series way too much to be healthy. You know you've got me hooked when I start going all delusional and forget that there is this thing called reality, and that I shouldn't be sitting in bed with my eyes closed trying to picture a door of light.
But more than just the fantastical element I really enjoyed how much more we learned about th OMG. I really enjoyed how much more we learned about the characters this go 'round. I love hearing their secrets. I liked how we learned more about the girls' families, and their lives outside of Spence. That said I can't wait 'til they get back to Spence.

To view it, click here. I can't decide which book is better. Ah but the second is great. Gemma has the same fire, the character development is as good as it was in the first. New characters are dark. My favorite newie? Nell Hawkins. Oh and my thoughts on Simon Middleton, handsome, but I'm still praying for a romantic relationship between Gemma and Kartik, more fire, tension, and mystery, who can't love that?
All I can say is that Felicity's, Gemma's and Ann's journey for the temple is a great one. As good as the first, I can't decide which book is better. As good as the first, with a darker edge. Dec 08, Kei rated it did not like it Recommends it for: People who hated Twilight for its anti-feminism.
Recommended to Kei by: People who hated Twilight for its alleged anti-feminism. Find the bloody Temple and bind the stupid magic already! All of the contrived riddles and guessing games, near death experiences, etc. Oooh pages Just add another meaningless event, like Simon tells Gemma more juicy gossip or take her on a shoplifting spree. This one wasn't as enthralling as the first book in the trilogy A Great Find the bloody Temple and bind the stupid magic already!
This one wasn't as enthralling as the first book in the trilogy A Great and Terrible Beauty. I am sick of Gemma, Felicity, especially Pippa, and even Ann has started to get on my nerves. I am sick of The Realms. I think it's stupid that they keep going in even after everything that happens at the end of RA.
One more thing, I was sickened by the fact that Felicity's dad is a child molester and Simon Middleton is a date-rapist. No one ever addressed this, not even Gemma. View all 3 comments. This time we go beyond the borders of the finishing school - Gemma, Felicity, and Ann are in London for their Christmas holidays. We accompany them to opera, ball, and various social events. To add to already dark Gothic atmosphere of the story, we visit an insane asylum and an I enjoyed "Rebel Angels" just as much as I did its predecessor - "A Great and Terrible Beauty.
To add to already dark Gothic atmosphere of the story, we visit an insane asylum and an opium den - both creepy and exciting adventures. There is also a greater emphasis on romance element - Gemma has a new suitor of high stature and wealth, but, of course, things are complicated by Kartik's presence.
Another great quality of Bray's storytelling is her ability to introduce modern dark themes into the old-fashioned setting. I am not sure if Victorian girls were really that well aware of matters of drugs, sex, and child molesting, but these elements are weaved into the story very skillfully. In spite of the many enjoyable elements of book, there were some that are quite bothersome.
For one, the friendship between the girls seems not to be a friendship at all. Rather, it's a sick, very often destructive relationship, in which Felicity always gets what she wants, Ann sides with the strongest in any argument, and Gemma acts against her better judgment under pressure from her so-called friends. Another thing, while the world of Realms is very imaginative, it's getting more and more complex, with numerous new supernatural players, whose motivations are very often hard to follow.
And finally, I am yet to understand the appeal of both Realms and magic. Gemma powers don't really help her in any way in real life, as for magic in the Realms, girls still do not go beyond making themselves pretty and conjuring gems out of leaves.
Hopefully, these aspects of the story will be explored better in the final chapter of this quite enchanting trilogy. Reading challenge: View all 9 comments. Nov 13, Lauren Kammerdiener rated it really liked it Shelves: This I'm mainly going to attribute to the London setting, which I loved probably too much. Bray's Victorian London was dark and interesting, and you got to see a lot of it, which I really appreciated. Her London society, however, I found a little wobbly and lacking at certain points, but it still gave the story an enjoyable twist.
One thing I do like about this series is that it addresses certain issues that are ne Rebel Angels did a lot more for me than its precursor, A Great and Terrible Beauty. One thing I do like about this series is that it addresses certain issues that are never really touched on in other books in this genre: Ann's cutting, the racial problem with Kartik and other Indians during this period in British history I really like that the primary love interest in this series isn't another obnoxious white boy , the view spoiler [the abhorrent sexual abuse Felicity suffers.
But all positivity aside, my God, these characters are pretentious. Sometimes I love them and their sweet little friendship, but a lot of the time I want to smack them for being so, well, schoolgirlish. I can see Bray trying to develop their characters and make them rounded, but it's not working. Strong, fluid characters are really important to me, and this series doesn't really have a lot of them.
The plot, too. The mystery of the whole Temple thing made this book a little more bearable than last book's silly schoolgirl antics, but I feel like Gemma barely even tried to find it until the last like seventy-five pages.
Also, every freaking time they went into the realms, I found myself skimming ahead to get back to the fun social life in London things. If you can't make the reader care about the central plot, you're doing something wrong. The entire setting of the realms also felt very weak and undeveloped to me.
I had a hard time envisioning it beyond a dilapidated courtyard. As I did with the last book, I'm giving this four stars, but once again I feel like that's a little high.
Damn Goodreads and their lack of half-star ratings. Jun 28, Andrez rated it liked it Recommends it for: Book Name: Rebel Angels Publisher, year: Simon and Schuster, Page total: YA, fantasy, paranormal, historical fiction First line of Book: Gemma finds herself attracted to Simon Middleton, the viscount's son, and apparently, he fancies her too.
But not everything's fine. The magic of the Reals is free, and Gemma is haunted by more visions, but this time, they're more vivid and real and intense. Not all is well in the Realms-or out of them. This book was okay. What if evil is something dreamed up by man, and there is nothing to struggle against except out own limitations?
The constant battle between our will, our desires, and our choices? Mar 22, Rhiannon rated it really liked it Shelves: That's easy: These kinds: Maybe because all those par-tays made the pace of the novel seem faster and the story more compelling.
But, also, we get to see Gemma interact with her family and the snooty-high-society all around her. This makes for some excellent characterization of both the major and secondary characters.
Would this series have been able to sustain itself without a love-triangle? Someone should have researched that Hellooooo, Simon Middleton! I guess you're here to try to coax our Gemma out of The Realms.
By getting her drunk and unlacing her corset Victorian date rape? I think we'll take Kartik any day, thanks. Meanwhile, is Felicity Worthington the best character in this series, or is it just me? It was magical, enchanting and truly captivating. I really love Gemma, and I think she is pretty damn awesome. She is intelligent, brave and curious and I think she had some great character development. The same can be said with Ann and Felicity, and while I sometimes dislike them, I have to admire they are pretty great characters.
Pippa was a character which really surprised me in Rebel Angels and I can't wait to read more of her story.
I thought the world-building was fabulous and it was truly mystical and it was one of the best things in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy. Libba Bray has fast become one of my favourite authors and I will definitely be reading more of hers. Oct 23, Shannon Giraffe Days rated it really liked it Shelves: I think the story is getting even more interesting, and also a bit sad. It didn't take me long to read it either! Truly, these are such fun books, and the world behind the door of light is getting more and more interesting.

In this sequel to A Great and Terrible Beauty , set two months after, a new, mysterious teacher has arrived at Spence, three ghostly girls are trying to give Gemma a message, and Kartik tells Gemma she must find the Temple and bind the magic that she let loose when she broke the runes. But it is also Christmas, and Gemma is spending the holiday in London with her family. Felicity has invited Ann to spend it with her family, enabling them to take trips back to the Realms to look for the Temple.
Gemma has a new interest to distract her: Simon Middleton, son of a Viscount, a handsome young man who has taken quite a shine to her but whose methods - getting her drunk on absenthe - leave a lot to be desired. Thankfully, not all Gemma's judgements of character are crappy.
I am sad about Miss Moore, though. I liked her. I also like the continuing touches of historical positioning: The usual places of gothic horror - the boarding school and the insane asylum - are clean and cheery in this story. Darker things lurk closer to home, in Gemma's father's opium-addiction, in the mysterious Rakshana that Kartik is a part of, in Felicity's horrible secret. The hideous creatures hunting for them in the Realms are dangerous and terrifying, but so is the opium-den, the treacherous Rakshana who want to make Gemma bind the magic of the Temple to them and then kill her, and an unlocked door to a child's bedroom.
The third and final book is not out until Christmas, I hear, but worth waiting for. Jul 13, kaitlyn rated it it was ok. Besides the obvious again with the "Felicity and Ann are my best friends. Felicity is such a spoiled brat. Ann is so annoying! Oh, they're being so rude to me, but they're still my best friends, yay! It's small and probably shouldn't bother me this much but it really did.
Why, after Gemma tells her about how they discovered the Order's use of anagrams, would Miss Moore write down her full name so that Gemma could figure out her ow Besides the obvious again with the "Felicity and Ann are my best friends.
Why, after Gemma tells her about how they discovered the Order's use of anagrams, would Miss Moore write down her full name so that Gemma could figure out her own anagram?
And why did it take Gemma so long to figure that one out? I just don't understand. Did she want Gemma to figure it out?
Not before Gemma took her to the realms, and she could have figured it out before that if she wasn't so stupid. The book really wasn't that bad. I finished it, so that's saying something I guess. It entertained me enough when it wasn't driving me crazy.
And I do think it is an interesting premise. Jan 01, Priscilla rated it it was amazing. Check out my video review: Jan 10, Jess rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 22, Julie rated it liked it. After reading the first book it was good enough to keep reading the other books although I didn't love it. I really liked the second book, but after the whole series was finished I was rather disappointed.
I thought the story was compelling, but if you're looking for a book appropriate for you teenage girls I didn't think this was it. There are far too many points of view that conflicted with my beliefs. I really wanted to like these books, but after the insertion on homosexuality hinted at in After reading the first book it was good enough to keep reading the other books although I didn't love it.
I really wanted to like these books, but after the insertion on homosexuality hinted at in the first book, and is clear in the third book. Someone commented on it being such an insignificant part of the story.
They are right, so why put it in there at all? I think the reason is because the author wants teenagers to take the opinion it isn't wrong. If you agree it isn't wrong you won't have a problem with this. If you do, I suggest you pick a different book for your daughter.
I don't believe in persecuting homosexuals but I do believe it is wrong. Dec 30, Lowed rated it liked it Shelves: I'm surprised she did not see it coming!
If you have read my review of the first book, you'd see at how I might be inconsistent with it. With a really good prose [this time], this is an excellent follow up of the first book. It's good seeing the development of the characters, although I still think they are a hateful bunch. But it was still nice enough to make me want to read the last book in the series.!
