Rebel Angels (book review)

Rebel Angels, by Libba Bray, is the sequel to A Great and Terrible Beauty. Gemma Doyle and her friends, Felicity Worthington and Ann Bradshaw, are excited about Christmas break, a chance to get away from the forbidding Spence Academy. They will have more time to visit the Realms, a magical world where the girls have power beyond their imagining. Even better, they find that their lost friend Pippa is there as well, eager to complete their circle of friends. But the threat of the witch Circe hangs above all their heads. In fact, she may be spying on them at Spence, the very place they thought was completely safe...

This book was even better than the first, and that one was hard to beat! There was much more suspense than in the first one. I wish the third one was out in paperback, but I'll be sad when I finish the trilogy.
